WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT?
Blue Light is a particular form of visible light, while UV Light emitted from the sun is an example of non-visible light. UV Light affects the front of your eye (like a sunburn) while Blue Light affects the back of your eye.
Blue Light has particularly intense wavelengths with more energy than other forms of visible light, so it travels further through your eye.
Screens (Television, Computer, Phones, Tablets)
Fluorescent + LED lights.
The Sky! Blue Light is what makes the sky look blue. Your body uses that blue light exposure to regulate sleep & wake cycles.
Studies say that 60% of all adult Americans spend 6+ hours a day in front of a blue light emitting screen!
SHORT TERM CHALLENGES:
Circadian Rhythm Disruption: Blue Light triggers your body to think it is day time. If you use screens at night your body will resist falling asleep!
Eye Strain: Headaches, Blurry vision, mental fatigue.
LONG TERM RISKS:
Certain occupations are more at risk than others!
- Lighting installers
They limit the amount of blue light filtering through your glasses and in turn, your eyes!
