Blue Light And The Eyes

Blue Light And The Eyes

The constant use of mobiles, laptops, and the onslaught of digital media has led to increased exposure to blue light. Electromagnetic energy is of various wavelengths. The longest are the radio waves and the smallest are the gamma rays. Most of the electromagnetic energy is invisible. But the shorter wavelength is the visible light that can be seen by the human eyes.

Blue light is the one with very short high-energy waves. Due to the use of LED (light-emitting diode) technology, there has been increasing exposure to blue light. Short-wave blue light in the wavelength between 415 and 455 nm has been linked to eye damage. The wavelength between 300 and 400 nm can penetrate the cornea and can be absorbed by the iris and pupil.

Increased use of computers and mobiles during the pandemic led to an increased burden of diseases like myopia and sleep disorders. Also, kids play a lot of online video games and watch TV shows that make their eyes susceptible to damage. Prolonged exposure to blue light can cause retinal damage and lead to age-related macular degeneration which can lead to loss of vision.

Computer vision syndrome is a disorder that has been coined in recent times. This refers to the complex eye and vision problems that are related to activities that stress the near vision, and which are experienced in relation to the use of the computer.
