What’s the Damage?
According to The Vision Council report, 65% of Americans now suffer from digital eye strain, which is characterized by dry and irritated eyes, blurred vision, headache, and neck and back pain. Furthermore, recent research indicates that prolonged exposure to the blue light emanating from digital screens may result in serious eye health issues, such as retinal and macular degeneration and even cataracts.
Blue light is found naturally in the sun’s light. But it’s also found in high doses in LED lighting , digital screens ( computers, TVs, smartphones, and tablets). The easy solution is the addition of a highly specialized coating that removes the harmful range of blue light.
