What is Blue Light?
Blue light is high-energy, visible light that helps regulate our internal rhythms. Prior to the modern technology we use today, our only source of blue light came from the sun — in fact, the reflection of blue light from the sun is actually the reason the sky is blue! Today, we receive blue light rays not only from the sun, but from smart phones, tablets, TV, computers, and more, and all this exposure can be a problem.
Overexposure to Blue Light, and Why You Need Protection
Just like you protect your eyes from harmful UV rays with sunglasses, you should consider protecting them from the excess blue light using high-tech filtering technology in your glasses. Here’s why:
Long-term overexposure to blue light can cause damage to retinal cells, which can lead to conditions such as macular degeneration.
Digital Eye Strain
Staring at a screen for an extended period of time can lead to discomfort such as dry eye, headaches, loss of focus, and blurred vision.
Blue light from the sun helps us fall asleep and wake up, but too much exposure can confuse our bodies, making it harder to fall asleep when we need to.
“Get you in on a squeeze, repairs quickly, and seriousness taken when it comes to eye health. Very friendly staff as well to children. I’ve been with them since I was young.”
“Switched over to Vision Pro because they have the best customer service for sure! Brought the whole family and was in and out in no time. There’s a fun kids corner to keep the little ones occupied. Would highly recommend to anyone.”
