In today’s digital age, we hear a lot about the harmful effects of Blue Light. A lot of people ask us, “Are Blue Light Blocking Glasses right for me?” We think they are, and here’s why.
Blue light is high-energy light found everywhere! We are exposed to it from electronic devices we use daily. TVs, cellphones, tablets and computer screens all emit Blue Light wavelengths that range from 380 to 500 nm.
The American Optometric Association has shown that too much Blue Light may cause eyestrain and increase the risk of macular degeneration.
A survey in the Wall Street Journal found that 70% of teens use their mobile phones within half an hour of going to sleep. Equally as important, overexposure to Blue Light can cause sleep cycle disruption in children and adults by suppressing the production of melatonin. Sleepless nights lead to daytime fatigue.
If that doesn’t sound very pleasant, then no worries. Fifth & Ninth has got you covered!
