WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT?
Natural blue light is all around us. It's what makes the sky look blue. Natural blue light regulates your sleep and wake cycles. It also boosts alertness, elevates your mood, and increases feelings of well-being. Artificial blue light, found in things like computers and flat screen televisions, LED lights and energy-efficient light bulbs, can be harmful to your eyes. The backlit displays on cell phones, e-readers, and laptop computers emit high amounts of very strong blue light waves. Too much blue light can take a toll on your health.
Our eyes have natural filters but they're not enough to protect against the over-exposure of blue light. But as we age, we lose melanin; by around age 65, half of our natural protection is gone. That makes our eyes more susceptible to damage from both UV rays and blue light which can more deeply penetrate the retina leading to macular degeneration.
