Save Yourself! Blue Light is Killing You! Growing up, you probably would have heard your parents telling you, “Don’t sit too close to the television!” or “Don’t watch too much TV, it will ruin your eyes!” There is truth to these statements—even though our parents may not have known the real reason behind the danger back then.These days, parents from the past would be shocked by how much time children—and adults—spend in front of screens.Whether you’re browsing your feed on Instagram, watching Netflix, or typing an essay for school, all of these activities and more share one thing—screen time. Nowadays, digital screens on devices have become such a big part of our life. And with their use comes something we should be aware of because it has a number of adverse effects on our body—blue light.While blue light isn’t a “special kind of light” that screens emit, it is quite controversial. The primary source of this kind of light is sunlight. This means that whenever you take a walk outside, you expose yourself to blue light. The spectrum of light consists of visible, infrared, and UV light. Out of all these types of light, only visible light can be seen by the human eye, hence the name. The different types of light also contain varying amounts of energy. Blue light is also known as high-energy visible light because the frequency of its blue band on the visible spectrum is particularly high. While blue light is a type of natural light, we are now coming into contact with artificial blue light more and more in the form the screens on our smartphones, computers, and other electronic devices. As a matter of fact, a lot of people spend most of their lives looking at screens.Because of this trend, eye doctors are starting to feel worried about the effects of this artificial blue light on our health, especially on the health of the eyes. In particular, prolonged exposure to this type of light damages our retinas—the part of our eyes that detects light intensity, color, and more. Here are some examples of the harmful effects of blue light:●Eye strain occurs because your eyes work hard so that they can cope with the blue light coming from screens.●Migraines or headaches are a common symptom of eye strain so you should expect these to happen more frequently.●Inability to focus happens when you experience migraines or headaches frequently because you stare at your devices for too long.●Dry eyes are also a common symptom of prolonged exposure to blue light since you don’t blink enough for your eyes to produce moisture. / itchy eyes●Blurred vision occurs when your eye’s natural filters cannot cope as you focus too much on your devices and forget to rest your eyes.●Poor sleeping patterns may happen too because blue light tends to disrupt our body’s natural circadian rhythm (more on this later).Because of how focused we are on computers, smartphones, tablets, and other devices, it comes as no surprise that many people all over the world are suffering from eye issues. And this is true for people of all ages. In particular, children aged 14 years old and below are at a heightened risk. The reason for this is that until they reach the age of 14, their eyes—specifically the corneas—haven’t fully developed yet. This means that they don’t have the protection that adult eyes have, making them particularly vulnerable to eye issues if they spend a lot of time in front of digital screens.If you aren’t aware of the harmful effects of artificial blue light on your eyes and on your health, it’s time to start learning.
