Blue light effects on the eye

Blue light is everywhere. Outside, the sunlight, more precisely, the spectrum of visible light, contains blue light waves, which are the shortest and the highest in terms of wavelength. Because they are shorter, these blue wavelengths or high visible energy (HVE) sparkle more easily than longer wavelengths. This type of flicker causes glare that can reduce visual contrast and affect vision.

Inside, sources of blue light are diverse: computer, smartphones, tablets, TV and LEDs. This flicker and glare imposed by these digital devices can be the cause of eyestrain, headaches, and mental and physical fatigue that can be felt after many hours spent in front of a computer or other electronic devices.
