Q&A with Our Doctors | Focus on Blue Light

What is Blue Light?

Blue Light is emitted from the sun and from LED lights and digital devices such as cell phones, electronic tablets and computer screens. Blue light is naturally occurring in the world around us. On the spectrum of visible light (light that humans can see), blue light has the highest energy and the shortest wavelength. It is also sometimes known as blue-violet or violet light, which is where ultraviolet (UV) light rays that are just beyond our perception get their name.  Much like ultraviolet light, blue light has both dangers and benefits to our health, particularly to our eyes..

How can I protect myself from Blue Light Emissions?

Glasses with blue-blocking lenses, coatings and filters are a good solution for those working on digital devices for long periods of time each day. You can also add anti-glare coatings with blue light protection to your regular eyeglass and sunglass lenses. Additionally, there are filters available for devices such as computers, smartphones and tablets, to reduce the amount of blue light radiation that can reach your eyes.

Can Computer Glasses help?

Computer glasses can help reduce eyestrain and discomfort while working at the computer. Lenses for computer glasses are designed to help you see at the intermediate distance (where most of us keep our computers when working on them) without having to use the muscles in our eyes to focus. The blue blocking and anti-reflective coatings on these lenses also helps with comfort and eye health.
