It is a known fact that blue lights are everywhere and devices that emit blue lights are everywhere, too. And we all know how damaging it is to our health and especially to our eyes. Now, let cut the story short and get to the point.
An increased risk of age-related macular degeneration was one of the "phototoxic effects" of blue light exposure, according to a 2019 report from the French Agency for Food, Environmental, and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES). The study found that blue light-blocking eyewear and filters might not offer adequate defense against these and other negative consequences.
Another study to consider is, LED radiation can harm the retina in an irreversible manner, according to a 2012 Spanish study, too.
Let us also consider the screen time and the risk factors that contribute to screen time include (two of the many risks):
1. Poor Sleep - a decrease in melatonin secretion, disrupted sleep and wake cycles, and increased morning grogginess have all been linked to screen usage before bed.
2. Digital Eye Strain or DES - is more of a set of symptoms brought on by spending too much time staring at a screen.
