WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT?
All the visible light we humans see represents the entire spectrum of the rainbow, from red to purple. There are blue light waves within that spectrum, which are said to keep us alert and upbeat.
Any source of visible light emits blue light waves, whether it’s the sun, the touchscreen or the light bulb. Every day, we get a lot of blue light waves from the sun, however after dark, we ‘re still exposed to it from a lot of artificial light sources.
IS IT BAD TO STARE AT THE SCREEN FOR HOURS EVERY DAY?
The short answer – It’s likely.
Digital eye strain is a group of eye and vision-related problems that result from prolonged computer, phone and tablet use according to the American Optometric Association.
By staring at screens all day, we’re also exposed to blue light waves, which are said to cause a myriad of eye issues. Doctors and researchers are in agreement that it does affect your circadian rhythm. These risks are effectively eliminated with the use of the innovative Kideyez Genie Glasses.
EYE FATIGUE & HEADACHES
The vulnerability to digital screens and blue light contributes to a visual pressure of the retina. Around 60% american citizens surveyed by The Vision Council claim they have digital eye strain and symptoms include: red itchy dry eyes, loss of vision, eye weakness, neck pain, and headaches.
Parents should be particularly careful to expose their children to blue light since their eyes are more vulnerable.
SLEEP DISRUPTION CAUSES
Your normal sleep cycle is influenced by the amount of light you are exposed to, and since our eyes are continuously absorbing blue light during the day, the body doesn’t know when to get ready for sleep. Digital blue light inhibits the development of the hormone melatonin, which can reduce both the quantity and quality of sleep.
