Ask yourself a question. How long do you spend staring into a digital screen, even for just a day? Take a second and add it all up in your head.
Now… think about this.
For every moment you stare into those digital screens, your eyes experience the full strain of blue light rays. After just a few hours, headaches can begin to form along with dry eyes and onset fatigue.
Right now, even while scrolling through this post, your poor eyes slowly absorb more and more of those devilish little rays.
Blue light is sadly found everywhere and not hitting the road anytime soon.
No matter where we turn it seems we’re sucked into a mobile device. Even with companies developing new ways to reduce blue light rays, it still follows us around in other forms like indoor lighting fixtures and even our “friend” the Sun.
So yes, even more blue light. Yay.
And the longer we’re exposed the worse it gets.
The Long Con
According to an article from USA Today, a study from the University of Toledo stated blue light can trigger toxic reactions in our eyes, slowly warping our retinal molecules and even playing a part in certain types of blindness.
So those hours of lying in bed scrolling through your phone are much worse than just losing a little sleep. Blue light packs a serious punch your eyes simply can’t afford.
Stop paying the price of blue light exposure – start fighting back.
Beat ‘Em, Don’t Join ‘Em
