Digital Eye Strain
Do you have tired, burning eyes. Blurry vision? — headaches even? If so, you are not alone!
It’s possible that the blame lies with your digital devices!
Sixty-six percent of reported are digital omnivores (owning a smartphone, tablet, and laptop). Trailing Millenials with the highest laptop ownership of any generation.
Only 25% of adult reported know that computer glasses can be used to protect the eyes from short-and long-term effects of digital eye strain.
You probably know about ultraviolet (UV) light, and about the dangers it poses. But have you heard of blue light?
What is Blue light?
Blue light is part of visible light and close to UV on the light spectrum, comprising of wavelengths that range from 400 nm to 500 nm.
Where does Blue Light come from?
Blue light is ever-present in your environment – both outdoors and indoors. It is naturally produced by the sun, dispensed from fluorescent light bulbs and emitted by LEDs present in digital devices such as computer screens, tablets and smartphones.
Blue light can harm you
Our eye's natural lens is not designed for exposure to artificial blue light emitted from digital devices. Since short wavelength, high energy blue lightpenetrates all the way into the retina and scatters more easily than other visible light, this will induces unfocused visual and reduces contrast.
When you're looking at computer screens and other digital devices that emit significant amounts of blue light, this unfocused visual puts strain on the muscle that helps the eye to focus. Unnecessary exposure to blue light can have adverse effects on eye health, leading to side effects such as:
- Dry eyes
- Eyes fatigue
- Blurred vision
- Neck and back pain
- Cumulative effect may increase the risk of damage to the retina
