Blue light filtering
A headache is a common symptom that is caused by too much stress on the eyes. People who are already light sensitive can trigger migraines from blue light exposure.
Because your eyes are working hard to cope with blue light, they begin to experience eyestrain. Over extended periods of blue light exposure can cause long-term vision issues such as cataracts, or age-related macular degeneration.
A common habit before going to sleep is checking emails or catching up on social media. However, at night, blue light disrupts our circadian rhythm, the natural release of melatonin. The blue light tricks our brain into thinking it's day-time, thus causing trouble falling asleep.
Long periods of focused work at a computer screen can cause eye fatigue. Give your eyes a break after 20 minutes, because our eye's natural filters are not designed to block out blue light.
Studies suggest that 60% of people spend more than 6 hours a day looking at a digital device.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does blue light affect your eyes?
Good news and bad news! The good news is that some HEV blue light is actually essential for our daily health and increases our energy levels. Natural exposure to daylight helps our bodies determine night from day, and thus, when it’s time to sleep.
The bad news is, natural light has its benefits, but artificial light in the form of LED light bulbs, computer monitors, tablets and smart phones emit significant amounts of HEV blue light. This has been a cause for concern among health care professionals about the long-term effects of blue light on overall eyecare health.
