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.


Why are Blue Light Glasses becoming Popular?


Before the Covid-19 pandemic effects such as work from home and lockdowns, many people were still spending a lot of time behind digital screens. 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.


Are Blue Light Glasses helping?


Have you come across names like screen glasses, blue-light filters, or compute lenses? Al these different names refer to blue light glasses. To make it easy for you, at Bambies we simply call them blue-light eyeglasses - our glasses have an additional filter of blue light. Adding blue light filter to your eyeglass lenses help in blocking the amount of blue light emissions reaching your eyes. This can protect your eyes by regulating the daily blue light that reaches your retina, hence good sleep quality.

 

Does Blue Light Glasses really Work?


The effectiveness of blue light glasses and whether they block blue light or not is still a debate left for the glass-wearers and optometrists. There is no any current study that show that electronic displays produces enough blue light that is harmful. Nevertheless, prolonged use of digital displays increase light scatter that affect vision, therefore reducing screen light exposure can help to improve eye focus.


Can Blue Light Glasses reduce Eyestrain?

Even though there is no standing evidence yet, but we can say that there are several causes of eyestrain like blue light overexposure. When you spend a lot of time looking at electronic screens you can experience eye fatigue. You can also strain your eye muscles when you are sitting very close to your computer screen. These glasses can help you to protect your eyes when you always spend long hours working behind computer screens or any other electronic device that emit blue light. Blue-light eyeglasses also increases contrast giving you a comfortable view when using your digital screens for extended periods.
