Blue Light Protection for Better Eye Health
In today’s world, digital devices like computers, smart phones, tablets and TVs are all integral components of our lives. These devices are often equipped with LED lights, which allow for a clearer, brighter screen, while enhancing efficiency in terms of power consumption. Unfortunately, studies have shown that the high-energy blue light that emanates from LEDs can actually be harmful to the retina and can cause eye conditions ranging from eye strain to macular degeneration. In addition, blue light exposure can negatively affect circadian rhythm and sleep patterns.
The good news? By taking the following steps, you can protect your eyes from the harmful effects of blue light.
As every type of blue light in the world today pose a serious threat to eye health, you need to undertake certain steps to ensure your eyes are well-protected from it. These include:
- Avoid using a digital device two to three hours before going to bed.
- Expose yourself to lots of natural light during the day.
- Wear special eyewear that protects against blue light.
- Practice the 20-20-20 rule (after every 20 minutes of time spent on a digital device, look at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds).
