How many hours are you spending in front of a digital screen? Spending just two consecutive hours on a digital device can cause eyestrain and fatigue.
What is blue light?
Blue light is a color in the “visible light spectrum” that can be seen by the human eye. It has a very short wavelength, which produces a higher amount of energy than the other. Studies suggest that, over time, exposure to the blue end of the light spectrum could cause serious long-term damage to your eyes.
Do I Need Them?
Prolonged exposure to blue light, especially at night, can definitely have some detrimental effects on your health and vision, but don’t go running to get your blue light blocking lenses just quite yet! Early symptoms of eyestrain are among the following:
- Eye Fatigue
- Neck/Back Pain
- Sensitivity to Light
- Red/Dry Eyes (possibly with a burning/stinging sensation)
