Eyes On Henry Discusses Blue Light and Vision Problems
Blue light is particular a wavelength of visible light, and is created by the sun and some digital devices like computer and smartphone screens. Although some blue light is necessary for humans to produce vitamin A, the light from devices has been linked to a number of vision problems. At Eyes On Henry in Spartanburg, SC, we offer help for blue light vision disturbances and eyestrain.
Symptoms of Blue Light Eye Problems
You may suspect blue light overexposure if you begin to have significant eyestrain throughout the day. You may also experience dry eye syndrome from failure to blink normally while using the computer for extended periods. This may cause vision blurring, irritation, and a gritty feeling in the eyes.
Treatment for Blue Light Vision Problems
The best treatment for reducing blue light eye strain is limiting the amount of time every day you spend staring at a screen. Your eye doctor can also provide computer vision glasses that have yellow-tinted lenses that filter out blue light. Anti-reflective lenses are also available that can help to reduce the effects of blue light on your eyes.
Preventing Blue Light Damage
You can prevent damage to your eyes from electronic devices by limiting the amount of time you spend looking at screens. This could be as simple as taking a break from looking at a screen for a few minutes a couple times an hour.
