Blue Light and You …

What’s all the fuss about blue light and our eyes?

Blue light is a 40nm band of visible light that has been found to result in retinal cell damage, however, it also helps to regulate our sleep cycle.

Blue light is emitted from the sun, LED and fluorescent lighting, TVs, computer screens and smart phones. It has a cumulative effect and has the potential to increase the risk of developing macular degeneration.

Blue light blocker coatings can be added to spectacle lenses, and are great for avid computer users.
