Blue Control Glasses

Why do I need blue control glasses? Using your computer or smartphone for hours each day can have long-term effects on your vision. We use these devices at work, on the road and at home, often holding them at a short distance, so our eyes have to constantly refocus. Digital devices, LCD and LED screens, fluorescent and LED light globes emit blue light and protecting your eyes from this high-energy visible (HEV) light can significantly mitigate the risks of retinal degenerative diseases.

It has been reported that 63% of people don’t know that electronics emit HEV blue light. This blue light exposure may increase the risk of macular degeneration and contributes to digital eye strain. With the ever increasing use of LCD and LED computers and TV screens not only in our workplaces, but homes too, the need to take care of our eyes is becoming more necessary. Along with adults, many children regularly use computer tablets and smartphones which all emit blue light. Although blue light in itself occurs naturally, (it is present in daylight and helps us to stay awake)
