Blue Light Blocking Lenses in Naples FL
Many of us spend our days going back and forth between the phone and the computer screen, responding to texts and emails. It's no surprise that all of that light can have a negative effect on our eyes. Most technological devices emit high-energy visible blue light. If you're struggling with eye symptoms related to blue light, our optometrist at Naples Eye Physicians in Naples FL is here to help.
How Blue Light Affects Us
When we look at our computer screens or our smart phones, the light doesn't appear to be blue. That being said, when we eliminate blue light from our screens, they take on a much more yellow tone, which is relaxing to the eye. Using devices that emit blue light on a regular basis can result in eye strain and fatigue. Over time, exposure to blue light may damage the cells of the retina, which can increase the risk of macular degeneration over time. Macular degeneration can cause deterioration of vision. It's important to protect your eyes from blue light so that you don't damage your vision.
Why Blue Light Blocking Lenses Work
The technology behind blue light blocking lenses is simple. The lens is treated with a polymer that absorbs blue light, stopping it from passing through the lens into your eye. The other types of light will continue to pass through the lens, allowing you to see your device clearly. It's up to you whether you'd like to wear your blue light blocking lenses as a regular pair of glasses (all day every day) or only when you're using your device. For many of us, our smart phones are a part of life, both at work and at home. If this is the case for you, it may make sense for you to wear your blue light blocking lenses regularly.
