WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT?
Blue light is everywhere – the main source of blue light is the sun, but on the other side, there are many sources of man-made blue light such as televisions, computer screens, mobile screens, etc.
Not all blue light is harmful – yes, as per the latest studies, it is proved that some exposure to blue light in the day time is good for health – elevates mood and improves memory.
However, too much exposure to blue light coming from digital screens of computers, television, phone, tablet, etc. is harmful to health.
DOES BLUE LIGHT REACH EYES?
Human eyes cannot block blue light naturally – yes, the cornea and lens of our eye is very much effective in blocking UV Rays but not blue light.
All blue light coming into the eyes passes through the cornea and lens and reach our retina, resulting in various vision-related issues.
