How does blue light damage the eyes?
The cornea, situated at the front of the eye, is a transparent cover that protects your iris, pupil, and anterior chamber. Light passes through the cornea and pupil before the crystalline lens focuses it on the retina.
High-energy blue-violet light in the narrow 415nm (violet) to 455nm (blue) is particularly damaging to eyes, in particular the lens and retina. The blue band of the light spectrum yields more energy and can pass straight through your eye – resulting in myopia (near-sightedness) and macular degeneration.
Blue light from LCD/OLED displays may cause eye damage, strains, headaches, and sleep disorders. Children are more susceptible to eye damage because their crystalline lens is less effective in filtering out blue-light, adding to the risk of age-related macular degeneration.
Scientific Research Findings
Blue light suppresses the production of melatonin, the hormone responsible for regulating wake and sleep cycles, leading to longer wake times, and sometimes insomnia.
Affects blood and temperature regulation, as well as your blood sugar levels.
Affect people's moods, depending on their personality, and is sometimes linked to depression.
High exposure is linked to retinal toxicity, leading to irreversible damage to the eyes' retina and cornea.
Results in higher rates of cataracts and macular degeneration.
