Stop long-lasting effects of screen time
and protect your child’s eyes from the dangers of the digital world
Children need protection. While we do our best to protect our kids from all dangers of the “real world”, we hardly know about the dangers of the digital world. And I am not talking about internet crime here.
Screen time is still on the rise and though we already spend a significant amount of time on our smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktops, this amount will further rise in the future. Our children are exposed to digital devices from very young ages on, so long-term effects will only show in many years. You want to know what’s so dangerous? Blue Light!
What is blue light?
Visible light is much more complex than you might think. Sunlight contains red, orange, yellow, green and blue light rays. And millions of shades of each of these colors. Red colors have longer wavelengths and contain less energy, while blue colors have shorter wavelengths and contain more energy. Blue light rays with the shortest wavelengths and highest energy are called blue-violet light or even ultraviolet radiation.
The problem with blue light is because the human eye is not very good at blocking it. In fact, less than one percent of UV radiation reaches the retina, even if you aren’t wearing protective sunglasses. On the other hand, virtually all visible blue light passes through the cornea and lens and reaches the retina.
Blue light protection is more important than we know
The fact that blue light penetrates all the way to the retina can cause severe damage to the light-sensitive retina. In bad cases, this can even lead to complete vision loss.
Computer screens and other digital devices emit significant amounts of blue light. Research has shown that blue light blocking lenses increase contrast significantly and protect the eyes at the same time.
Better concentration, better sleep, and just the right protection for little eyes
Blocking the dangerous blue lights that screens emit to your children’s eyes will have various positive effects on their lives. Concentration is heavily improved and results in better a memory, better grades and more fun doing homework. If kids use tablets or phone screens for entertainment purposes in the evenings it is even more important to block blue light rays. The result is that kids fall asleep faster and easier and their whole sleep is better. Their batteries recharge more effectively and this gives them an energy boost at the kindergarten or school.
And if you care about the protection of your kid’s eyes, you should now add your favorite model to the cart and buy one of our blue light blocking glasses today.
