It is a common fact that blue lights are dangerous to our health. It destroys and disrupts our sleeping patterns, eye health, skin, and even alters our mood. The pieces of information about said lights are spreading all over the internet like wildfire and we should be grateful for that because the younger generations are now more prepared. They have been warned and they can now prevent and minimize their exposure to it. But the funny thing, is that some people still, somehow, find it as a joke or something even after all the data presented on the web.
Now let us talk about the myths about blue lights:
According to The Vision Council's 2016 Digital Eye Strain Report, almost 90% of Americans use digital devices for two or more hours each day, exposing users to blue light, which some believe to be hazardous.
Another well-detailed study is about the overuse and exposure to blue lights. According to Adam Gordon, O.D., clinical associate professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Optometry, may create eyestrain and concentrating issues but not a long-term injury, eye illness, or retinal damage. That basically answers everything.
Digital eyestrain is not a myth!
