Did you know that It’s the same principle as how we protect our skin from the sun’s UV with sunblock lotion. Too much exposure of blue light is very damaging to your eyes. It helps your mood and alertness. It regulates your natural wake time and sleep cycle. Blue light passes through the lens of your eye and cornea and reaches the retina, which is the very crucial wall at the back of your eye. But with too much exposure to blue light, your retina wall becomes crisp and dry, causing digital strain and damage, which decreases your vision. The largest source is sunlight. However, tablet screens include blue light, as well as car headlights, really…today, you see LED light everywhere. Wow. in front of screens. Take frequent breaks to rest your eyes. You can go to a computer store and get a blue light screen protector to put on your monitor. They block blue light from going through my eyes. Or… They 100% block the blue light. That’s the advantage. Should we protect our eyes from blue light?
