Blue Light Explained
Blue light exists naturally from the sun and other synthetic sources. Artificial blue light is prevalent in manufactured light sources, including LED lights and digital screens like your television, smartphones, tablet or computer.
Staring at a screen for long periods can lead to digital eye strain, headache, dry and itchy eyes and eventually lead to potential eye damage.
In moderation, blue light is beneficial to us. It helps in regulating our circadian rhythm. It tells our natural mind and body to establish a routine on when to wake up and go to sleep.
Exposure to blue light also impacts sleeping patterns which are critical for the brain and physical development of our children. Have you ever wondered why kids don’t want to go to bed at night because they are not tired - may be related to the Blue Light effect? Blue Light exposure before going to bed is having a terrible impact on sleeping quality.
