Nowadays, almost everyone interacts with backlit LED screens like computers, tablets, and smartphones. These new technologies are essential in our day-to-day lives but this has put us at risk of the harmful effects of Blue UV Light.
Long periods of working on a computer or mobile device can lead to a condition known as “Digital Eye Strain”. Digital Eye Strain causes symptoms such as headaches, difficulty focusing, blurry vision, and/or a burning sensation in your eyes at the end of your workday.
Protecting your eyes from sources of Blue UV light can mitigate the harmful effects caused by Digital Eye Strain. There are a variety of options that can reduce your exposure to Blue UV light including Blue Light Filtering lenses and a few modifications to your work environment. Always ask your Eye Care Professional for the best course of action based on your own lifestyle.
