Chances are, reading this article without wearing a Peculiar Eyewear with UV400 exposes you to risks of getting unrepairable damages to your eyes in the future. Using digital devices up close or for long periods of time can lead to digital eyestrain at the very least if they are unprotected.

UV Rays

But first things first, did you know that apart from the screens on your mobile phones and laptops, heavy sun exposure from 10am to 4pm already places your eyes at great risks from UV rays. Corneal damage, cataracts and macular degeneration are all possible chronic effects from UV exposure and can ultimately lead to decreased vision.

Although your digital screens do not emit UV rays, they however emit a different kind of light that may have similar repercussions. BLUE LIGHT which are very short, high energy rays that are just a little bit longer than the very harmful UV rays.

Blue Light

Blue light, like other colors of visible light, is all around you. The sun emits blue light. So do fluorescent and incandescent light bulbs. Human beings are exposed to more blue light than ever because of the widespread use of devices that rely on light-emitting diode (LED) technology. Laptops, TV, smartphones, tablets, and even lighting fixtures all use this kind of technology.

That said, our eyes are exposed to a lot more blue light than usual and thus need extra care and protection. Here are a few ways to help minimize our exposures to these harmful rays:

How to Protect Eyes from Blue Light Exposures

20/20/20 Method

While using devices, stop every 20 minutes to focus on objects that are around 20 feet away. Study those objects for 20 seconds before you return to your up-close viewing.

Keep Your Eyes Moist

Eye drops and humidifiers are all good ways to keep your eyes from becoming too dry and irritated while you’re using BLUE LIGHT emitting devices.

Adjust Your Screens

Set the screens of your devices to “Eye Comfort” with warmer tones. You can also buy blue-light-filtering screens to slip over your computer screen when you’re working at night.
