Blue-Blocking Indianapolis Eyeglasses Can Protect Against Light Damage

Blue light is emitted by electronic screens and energy-efficient light bulbs which are now commonly used by millions of people worldwide. Prolonged exposure, especially at night, has been linked to disorders like obesity, diabetes, and even cancer, as well as disrupted sleep which can worsen depression. Exposure also makes the eyes vulnerable to damage such as macular degeneration and other retinal diseases. Experts believe that blue light damage should be a concern given the current widespread use of electronics, but many people remain unaware of the issue. Certain groups such as those who use their computers for more than three hours a day, nighttime workers, children who play and study on their tablets, and post-cataract patients face an increased risk of light damage, and it is doubly important that they are informed about the negative effects of blue light exposure.
