If your work requires you to spend more hours in front of a computer, if you are a mobile gamer who spends day and/or night playing with your computer, if you are into social media that you spend too much time with your devices (smartphones or tablets), or if you are a binge-watcher who enjoys watching TV series almost non-stop, your eyes are at risk of getting destroyed too soon due to the blue light that the devices are releasing.
Blue lights are high-energy visible lights with a wavelength between 450 and 495 nanometers that you can get from smartphones, laptops, netbooks, tablets, desktop monitors, TVs, and electric lights. The exposure arises from light emitting diodes more known for its abbreviation LED.
Nowadays where technology is everywhere, we become more exposed to blue lights. Almost all teenagers and adults own a smartphone; almost all families have computers.
What Can Blue Lights Do to Our Health?
Too much exposure to blue lights everyday is somehow not good. This is because it can increase our energy level. We will feel more alert and awake. During daytime, it may be an advantage as it is like a substitute to coffee. We do not need to take in too much caffeine to keep us awake.
