9. 5 ways Blue Light is hurting you…
Before discussing why blue light is hurting you, we need to discuss what blue light is. Blue light is found in the visible light spectrum that can be seen by human eyes, and is a short wavelength that produces higher amounts of energy. The higher energy found in blue light is known as ultra-violet rays, and often create a suntan. It is these UV rays that are used in tanning booths, which can lead to an even suntan, but over exposure can lead to painful sunburns, and even skin cancer. Of course those severely negative results only happen in over exposure for extended periods of time, but in moderation, UV rays are not all bad and they are needed to help the body produce its own vitamin D. Below is a short list of examples of how we encounter blue light in our daily lives.
1.) Outdoor sunlight is the main source of blue light exposure, but it is important to note of exposure we get while indoors. Fluorescent and LED lights, flat screen tv’s, computers, smartphones, and most digital devices are responsible for emitting blue light from their display screens. With how much time we spend looking at various screens, eye doctors have become concerned with the effect blue light has on our eye health.
2.) The cornea and lens of the eyes are good at blocking UV rays from getting into the retina which is light sensitive. It is important to note that sunglasses and protective blue light glasses are important in protecting the eyes from damage which could lead to cataracts or even cancer.
3.) Too much exposure to blue light could destroy the retina, which is the inner lining of the back of the eye, and can be the cause of macular degeneration which can lead to permanent vision loss.
4.) Since blue light is more abundant than other lights, it is not easily focused, but because digital devices emit blue light and require our focus and attention, this can lead to eye strain over time.
5.) With that said, blue light is not all bad. Blue light boosts our alertness and mood, and can even help with depression. In fact, light therapy is used to treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD), and it is important in regulating the circadian rhythm of the body.
