Pros and Cons of Technology

How technology can affect our eyes?

In this generation, most of the people are staring on their phone screen, use their laptop all day because of their works and studies.

There is no studies who said that using gadgets and technology can immediately destroy your eyesight but the continuously use of this thing can cause a damage to your eyes.

There are different things that can be the result of too much use of technology such as dry eyes, eye strain and even tension headache. This is why you need to use it in balance and control yourself.

Let me give you a tip, you can use anti-radiation glass to reduce the radiation that is coming from the blue light on your gadgets that can damage your eyesight. Also, you can do the 20-20-20 rule to mitigate the risk.

Technology is time consuming

It can be helpful to us in our work, studies, job and etcetera but if you are only using this in your desires without anything sense, better to think!

If you are only using this to take advantage of your happiness, it will only consume much of your time and can lead to negative effects such as failing to school, influence on your behavior, minimize your communication and cut your relationship not only to your friends but possible to your family.

Breaking your relationship

Technology cannot only affect your health and time but it can also affect to your relationship. People are spending most of their time in using technology and gadgets instead of interacting with their friends and family. As a result, the time for their relative and circle was lessen and decrease their social skills.

Hence, this technology can cause the isolation of every individual because they are spending more time in technology instead of interacting with their relative and friends.

On the other hand, this thing has also a pros. To make this article unbiased, let us talk about the things how technology can help us on our daily lives.

It can help us in communication

This statement is opposing on the last cons of technology that we have mentioned. Ironically speaking, it can also help us in our communication.

Nowadays, some people choose to work in abroad to get a better job compared to our country. The problem is, you will have a hard time to communicate because you and your love ones is on different country...

...but because of technology, this problem of yours have a solution! You can now call to them with the use of technology. We can use different medium such as Facebook messenger, Telegram, Zoom and etcetera.

In this case, we can prove that technology is really helpful in communication.

It can help us on our studies

Before, they said that studying is more difficult compared to the new system. Why? It is because the students are going to the library to gather information for their homework and manually read the book to find the specific information that they need.

Now, it has a lot of changes, by simply typing the information that you need you can write the information immediately because it will appear on your screen instantly.

It can make our work easier

Generally speaking, technology can makw our work easier. In our studies, works, communication even finding jobs! Nowadays most of the jobs that we will find needs a technology to work. There are freelancers who really need an internet to work, the call center agents where they need a telephone to communicate on their clients and many more!

Also, there are different factories out there where the machines are working with the help of technology.


Most of the things on our environment has advantage and disadvantage, all we need to do is to control ourselves and use it in balance to avoid the disadvantage. I believe that the cons are caused by our actions. Do not abuse the things, it will only cause a negative resul on different aspects on our life.
