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.
Do your kids complain that their eyes are dry/ itchy or twitching? Do your kids suffer from loss of focus, blurry vision or fatigue? Headaches or neck pain? All these things are symptoms of digital eye strain.
Digital screens emit a specific type of blue and violet lights, and overexposure can cause digital eye strain. Now is the time to protect those little eyes with Kids Optics™ blue light blocking glasses.
As our kids spend more and more time staring at digital screens, whether it’s the computer at work, mobile phone, iPad, PlayStation or just relaxing the old fashioned way in front of the TV; All this screen time can be hard on their eyes and can lead to eye strain.
Sleeping is critical to the mental, physical and psychological development of kids, especially for kids below ten years old. And unfortunately, overexposure to blue light disrupts the sleeping patterns of kids (and adults as well).
Although blue light during the day is beneficial as it boosts attention and levels up moods, at night, artificial blue light disrupts the circadian rhythm that suppresses the natural release of melatonin. This melatonin is a natural hormone that helps us (and our kids to) sleep naturally.Blue light tricks our brain into believing it’s still daytime; thus, falling asleep can be more difficult.
