Symptoms may include:
Protect your eyes by considering a pair of protective lenses to help prevent overexposure of the harmful UV rays. Ask us for more information about protective eyewear.
WE ARE EXPOSED TO THE HARMFUL BLUE VIOLET UV LIGHT RAYS NOW MORE THAN EVER! There are recent studies that reveal blue violet light can cause retinal damage leading to macular degeneration, and may be a contributing factor to cataract formation, which is a clouding of the lens. One of the leading causes of blindness worldwide is cataracts that result from the harmful rays.
Eyestrain is a negative effect to blue violet light. How does this occur?
There are new anti-reflective treatments to protect against the harmful blue light and UV. A study conducted in 2011 by researchers at SUNY college of optometry found that people hold their mobile phones 2-9 inches closer than other printed material they view. We are putting our eyes in danger by holding our devices closer to our faces amplifying the amount of blue violet light we receive.
