People spend a lot of time behind electronic devices not knowing some health effects coming from them. Digital screens such as laptops, gaming systems, and phones emit blue light. Excess blue light can; make us feel drowsy, disturb our circadian rhythm, and even cause cardinal eyestrain.
Blue light glasses have a special filter designed to help in reducing the amount of blue light entering our eyes.
What is Blue Light?
Here is a short science lesson… The light spectrum that is visible to your eyes contain blue light at its UV end. Vibrating in the range of 380 – 500 nanometer, blue light has the highest energy and the shortest wavelength.
The main source of blue light is the sunlight. But there are some artificial sources like LEDs, fluorescent light, computer monitors, LED TV flat screens, tablets and smartphone screens.
Can Blue light affect your health?
The amount of blue light rays emission from our smartphones, laptops, tablets, and general electronic devices are lower compared to sunlight. Your eyes lens and cornea are not capable of blocking visible blue light rays passing through the eye. When you are working behind your computer screen for a long time of the day, blue light can interfere with your natural sleep quality and daily rhythm of the body. You may also experience migraines, headache, and eye fatigue.
How is Digital Eyestrain Connected to Blue Light?
Blue light causes digital eyestrain. High energy and short-wavelength blue light spread easily than any other light that you can see. Since digital devices and computer screens release excess blue light, the blurry visual “clatter” generated decreases contrast leading to eyestrain.
The rate at which people blink when using electronic devices is also low resulting to eye dryness hence eyestrain. Some common symptoms of eyestrain include blurred vision, headache, and shoulder and neck pain. Many studies show that about a third of people using electronic devices for long periods experience one of the above signs.

This has increased in the past 2 years, and the digital screens proximity to our eyes is raising concerns around the possible effects of blue light to the health of our eyes after prolonged use of digital screens.
