How Blue Light Affects Us
Constant exposure to blue light can damage your retinal cells and make your eyes tired and uncomfortable. Blue light can also lead to vision problems like age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and potentially eye cancer. Blue light also affects children more than adults since their eyes absorb more blue light from digital devices.
Our optometrist can help protect your eyes from harmful exposure to blue light through blue light-blocking glasses. These lenses filter and block some of the blue light coming from digital screens, preventing eye strain and dryness.
What Are Blue Light-Blocking Lenses?
Blue light-blocking lenses can help filter and block some of the blue light coming from your digital screens. These lenses should be worn during the day while working at a computer screen and at night to prevent blue light from affecting your ability to sleep.
Spending too much time on screens can cause headaches, dry eyes, and blurry vision. Too much blue light exposure can also cause sleep issues. Blue light-blocking lenses help protect your eyes from these problems, making it more comfortable to look at your monitor for extended periods.
