BLUE LIGHT

IT IS POS­SI­BLE TO HAVE TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING!

ZOOMER Magazine - - ZOOM IN -

Nat­u­ral blue light from the sun boosts our im­mune sys­tem, makes us en­er­getic and feel­ing happy but too much blue light, par­tic­u­larly the type emit­ted by screens on TVs, cell phones and com­put­ers can do dam­age to our eyes and our over­all health. You and your fam­ily mem­bers prob­a­bly spend time in front of those screens, un­aware of how much blue light is be­ing ab­sorbed by your eyes, or that it causes health is­sues from dig­i­tal eye­strain and headaches to dis­rupt­ing your sleep cy­cle. Chil­dren are the most vul­ner­a­ble to blue light, and we see them spend­ing more and more time on de­vices for school, en­ter­tain­ment and com­mu­ni­ca­tion. You can ask your op­tometrist about glasses with a blue light fil­ter coat­ing like Nikon SeeCoat Blue UV. The lenses will help fil­ter the blue light and re­duce the symp­toms as­so­ci­ated with blue light ex­po­sure.
