Blue-White Light Damage to the Eyes

What is Blue Light & Its Effects on Eye Health?

Please keep the following essential details in mind:

Are you curious about blue light and its effects on eye health? Blue light is visible with the shortest wavelength and highest energy, vibrating within the 380 to 500-nanometer range. Around one-third of visible light is considered blue, found in natural sources like sunlight and artificial sources such as LED TVs, computer monitors, smartphones, and tablet screens.

Excessive exposure to blue light can lead to vision problems such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, eye cancer, and growths on the eye’s clear covering. Moreover, prolonged use of electronic devices exposes us to blue light, which can cause digital eye strain, fatigue, and disrupted sleep patterns. Too much blue light exposure can also disturb our circadian rhythm and suppress melatonin, leading to sleep disorders.

Fortunately, new research suggests that antioxidant carotenoids can help protect against blue light damage. If you have concerns about your eye health, it is recommended to consult with an optometrist (eye doctor) who can guide you on the best management solutions.
