Blue light is slowly destroying your retina

I’m posting this for folk who are not aware of the dangers of the blue light in our screens. I’ve been aware for some time & purchased the blue blockers however I recently came across info to block this at the screen. I’ll add the post I found with many free or paid options. I’ve downloaded the one called Eye Saver. I’ll keep you posted. (Update: what I’m liking about Eye Saver is the little timers you can opt into … those ergonomic breaks for eyes, body, fresh air, exercise etc … breaks I frequently forget to time myself on). Check them out…see also Dr Mercola’s article on eye health … EWR

Effects of Blue Light on Eye Health

People are exposed to blue light via everyday technology, Blue light exposure has been shown to impact health. Some studies also suggest that chronic blue light exposure may represent a risk for the development of age-related macular degeneration and other pathologies. Animal studies have shown that age-related macular degeneration can be induced by blue-light exposure.

One epidemiological study has also shown a positive correlation between sunlight exposure – a natural source of blue light- and increased risk of early age-related macular changes in humans. However, this particular association of effects from blue light is difficult to assess in humans and warrants further study.

  1. This is something I’m constantly harping on about to my workmates. They all have their monitors on daylight setting and mine is on yellow “night light”. They say they like the blue “day” setting more. Sadly there are a lot of lemmings in this world!
