SECTION 1: HOW BLUE LIGHT AFFECTS THE EYE AND BODY

Chapter 1: A Close Look at Our Eyes

Chapter 1: A Close Look at Our Eyes

Our eyes are our dominant sensory organs. More than most other animals, we rely on sight to gain information about our surroundings.

Blue Light and Displays

Chapter 2: Blue Light and Displays

Although the dangers of UV rays from the sun have been known for years, we are only now recognizing that visible blue light from digital screens (and sunlight) also may pose risks to the health of our eyes.

Digital Eye Strain

Chapter 3: Digital Eye Strain

At its simplest, digital eye strain is eye and vision-related, caused by spending extended periods of time on computers, tablets, smart phones, or gaming consoles.

Chapter 4: Circadian Rhythm

Today’s digital generation is sleeping less than previous generations, and blue light in excess of normal daytime dosages may be a cause.
