It’s no secret that blue light surrounds us in all aspects of life. In fact, there’s really no escaping it! From the sun to TVs, computers, tablets, smartphones, and fluorescent lighting, blue light is everywhere. For some people, it’s even more common than UV light. Read on to learn more about blue light & eye health.
At Visual Health Doctors of Optometry, we are committed to understanding the effects of prolonged exposure of blue light to your eyes, and to promoting protection from blue light. Overexposure to blue light from computer and device screens has been known to increase eye strain and possibly contribute to macular degeneration. Even if you don’t feel any pain, overexposure from blue light can permanently damage your eyes.
For these reasons, we believe that annual eye health exams, retinal imaging, and visual field screens are the best way to detect and prevent damage that can be caused by blue light.
