Why Get Blue Light Glasses
Exposure to blue light can cause eyestrain, headaches, physical and mental fatigue caused by many hours sitting in front of a computer screen or other electronic device. Our eyes’ natural filters do not provide sufficient protection against light rays from the sun, let alone the light emanating from electronic devices or fluorescent-light tubes. Prolonged exposure to blue light may cause retinal damage and contribute to age-related macular degeneration, which can lead to loss of vision.
Chronic exposure to blue light at night can lower the production of melatonin, the hormone that regulates sleep, and disrupt your circadian rhythm.
In this day and age, we are constantly exposed to blue light from our mobile phones, tablets, television screens, and computers. Prolonged exposure can be lead to a number of negative health effects. Combat the harmful effects of blue light today!
What is Blue Light?Blue light is a colour in the visible light spectrum that can be seen by the human eye. Blue light has a very short wavelength and produces a higher amount of energy. Studies suggest that over time, exposure to the blue end of the light spectrum could cause serious long-term damage to your eyes. Sources of blue light include the sun, digital screens (TVs, computers, laptops, smartphones and tablets), electronic devices, and fluorescent and LED lighting.
Will Blue Light Damage Your Eyes?
Blue light isn’t harmful in small, natural doses. In fact, the blue light our eyes receive from the sun is used to regulate sleep cycles and maintain your health. However, as people use computers more and are generally exposed to more blue light, this balance gets upturned, and can potentially cause damage to your eyes and your health. According to the most recent studies, sustained and extreme exposure may cause damage. Thankfully this can be remedied with blue light glasses
