Our environment and its visual demands on our Eyes…. Computer screens, e-readers, notebooks, tablets and last but not least the most convenient, the…smartphone. But at what price are our eyes paying for tweeting, blogging, surfing and emailing. All the electronic devices today place demands on the visual system; taxing it and stressing it beyond our knowledge.. In other blogs I mention the research done by the AMA and its research on Sleep Apnea. Kids today take their devices to bed with them. The amount of melatonin depleted from this action is creating things from mood changes to poor grades.
But on the brighter side there are solutions to be had. Nikon, Essilor, Hoya Inc. and LVS Associates have products to minimise or neutralise these deleterious blue light effects on our eyes.
Artificial blue light is the enemy. Eliminate it and we’re more than 5O% better off.
If, we continue on the same path with no UVB protection from devices, the sad result is early Cataracts and AMD.
