What is Blue Light?

Did you know that blue light waves are some of the shortest, highest energy wavelengths in the visible light spectrum? And, because they are shorter, these "Blue" wavelengths actually flicker more easily. As a result, they create a glare that can significantly reduce visual contrast and affect sharpness and clarity. Our eyes' natural filters do not provide sufficient protection against these blue light rays.

Studies suggest that, over time, exposure to the blue end of the light spectrum emitted by digital devices (yes, your computers and smart phones!) and fluorescent/LED lighting could cause serious short- and long-term damage to your eyes. Digital eyestrain is considered to be a real medical issue with serious symptoms that can affect your learning and work productivity.

Symptoms of digital eyestrain, or computer vision syndrome, include blurry vision, difficulty focusing, dry and irritated eyes, headaches, neck and back pain. As many as 70% of adults who report regular usage of media devices experience some symptoms of digital eyestrain.

There's growing medical evidence that blue light exposure may cause permanent eye damage; contribute to the destruction of the cells in the center of the retina; and play a role in causing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which can lead to vision loss!!
