How to Protect Your Eyes from Blue Light: A Comprehensive Guide

How to Protect Your Eyes from Blue Light

Scrolling through our mobile phones has been a part of our daily lives. Frankly, we are not just using our phones for entertainment. Today, cellular phones have become a portal for new information, calculators, calendars, personal diaries, and many more. We are too invested in using them without knowing that these gadgets emit harmful blue light.

What is blue light?

What is Blue light? Before we tackle the negative effects of blue light, let’s first discuss its definition and how exposure to this simple light can lead to harmful result. Blue light is known as a high-energy visible (HEV) light that is visible to the human eye. This type of light cannot be filtered by the eyes, which is why it can penetrate the retina.

The Effects of Prolonged Light Exposure and Prevention Tips:

Dry eyes

This is one of the common effects of blue light, and it occurs when our eyes do not produce enough tears to lubricate and nourish the surface of the eye. Common symptoms include blurry vision, red eyes, sensitivity to light, watery eyes, and a stinging sensation.

Keeps you Awake at Night

The effect of blue light in our bodies is it keeps us awake because it messes with the hormone melatonin that helps regulates the body’s night and day cycle. It is also one of the factors why your eyes feel tired.

Growth of Cataracts

Blue light can penetrate the cornea, lens, and retina (a layer of tissue that captures light and translates it into images) of our eyes, as our eyes are not efficient at blocking it. Unfortunately, this action can lead to the growth of cataracts, a type of eye problem that may cause blindness in the long run.

Light bulbs also emit blue light, wherefore we are exposed to light beams even without the presence of digital screen. Unfortunately, due to our lack of knowledge regarding lenses, most of us brush off the importance of wearing protective eyewear, such as eyeglasses with blue lens UV420 and multicoated lenses. Unknown to many, blue lens UV420 is specifically designed to block blue light and reduce eye strain.
 
Multicoated lens, on the other hand, is scratch-resistant, anti-glare, and consists of UV protection. Ergo, these lenses are perfect for people who often use smartphones, laptops, and tablets.
