Why Do We Need Anti Blue Light Glasses ?
WHAT IS DIGITAL EYE STRAIN?
Digital eye strain is the temporary discomfort that follows two or more hours of digital device use. A variety of electronic devices can cause digital eye strain, including televisions, desktop and laptop computers, smartphones, e-readers, tablets, and gaming systems, especially when they are used simultaneously or when switching repeatedly from one device to another.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF DIGITAL EYE STRAIN?
- Red, dry or irritated eyes
- Blurred vision
- Eye fatigue
- Back, neck and shoulder pain
About 80 percent of American adults report using digital devices for more than two hours per day with nearly 67 percent using two or more devices simultaneously, and 59 percent report experiencing symptoms of digital eye strain.
WHAT IS THE IMPACT ON ADULTS?
Americans report experiencing the following symptoms of digital eye strain:
- 32.4 percent report experiencing eye strain
- 27.2 percent report experiencing dry eyes
- 27.7 percent report experiencing headaches
- 27.9 percent report experiencing blurred vision
- 35 percent report experiencing neck and shoulder pain
Additionally, close to 80 percent report using digital devices, including TV, in the hour before going to sleep, with almost 55 percent in the first hour they are awake.
WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT ?
Blue light, also known as high energy visible (HEV) light, is a type of light with short wavelengths emitting a higher energy. Blue light penetrates deep into the eye, so exposure may result in:
-Damage to the retina exposing the eye to hidden spikes in intensity.
-Long-term vision problems such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts.
-Suppressing the natural release of melatonin, disrupting sleep. Aside from sunlight, digital screens –like those of TVs, computers/ laptops, smart phones and tablets– are the most common source of individuals’ blue light exposure.
More than 80 percent of Americans report using digital devices in the hour before going to sleep, which has been shown to disrupt sleep patterns by increasing alertness to the brain.
Some of the symptoms of digital eyestrain include blurry vision, difficulty focusing, dry and irritated eyes and headaches.
