WE ARE THE DIGITAL GENERATION
ARE YOU ONE OF THE FREQUENT SMARTPHONE USERS?
The new digital generation has arrived. A tremendous increase in smartphone screen time was reported by researches. Today's light sources and digital devices emit a disproportionally high amount of blue light and may contribute to discomfort glare and therefore could play a role in the perception of digital eyestrain.
BLUE LIGHT IS EVERYWHERE
HAVE YOUR EYES WELL PROTECTED AT NIGHT?
Blue light is the visible light with shorter wavelength, which usually creates more glares especially at night. Our pupil dilates when light level drops from high to low. When our pupil enlarges at night, it means more light can enter our eyes directly.
According to some researches*, long exposure to blue light under 445nm may possibly contribute to retina injury.
