Blue light to fight computer vision syndrome

Why do we need to fight computer vision syndrome?

Computer vision syndrome is a relatively new health problem we face. We need to fight computer vision syndrome because it is an enemy that lies undetected in our daily lives. Things as innocent as our cell phones, tablets, computer laptops and even our TVs lie in wait to attack us. When I say attack us I really mean attack our vision. It is an all-out frontal assault. Really! The attack is directly in front of us. Staring us right in the eye. Or better yet I should say “eyes”.

Our electronic devices give off radiation. They project light. More dangerously the spectrum of blue light. Blue light has been shown in numerous studies to cause retinal damage. That in short is an attack on our retinas. An attack on our vision. And an attack with dire consequences on our vision health.

Computer vision syndrome is the risk associated with these attacks on our eyes. Electronic devices give off emissions. And the emissions come in the form of blue light and electronic radiation. The result being computer vision syndrome and/or Digital Eye Strain. So first we must understand what is attacking us.

Problems associated with the attacks?

We are in front of our electronic devices every day. Normally for long periods of time. The non-stop exposure to these devices cause strain to our eyes. Often referred to as computer vision syndrome or digital eye strain. These long hours of strain to our eyes create many of the following conditions:

  • Bloodshot eyes
  • Irritated itchy eyes
  • Dry eyes
  • Double vision or blurred vision
  • Shoulder pain or neck pain
  • Back pain for muscle fatigue

According to the American Optometric Association, Computer vision syndrome visual diagnosis is can include:

  • Presbyopia
  • Binocular vision dysfunctions
  • Refractive Errors
  • Astigmatism
  • Myopia

They go on to say that “computer vision syndrome symptoms occur as the result of visual interaction with a task” these tasks typically include the use of a computer display for stresses to the visual system associated with using electronic devices.

What are the secret weapons?

Before we address the secret weapons let’s list the more obvious weapons. Things that we can do that are logical but very helpful include:

  • Adjusting the distance which we view our electronic devices. Typically arms-length is best for a computer display. Shorter distances can be adjusted for smaller electronic devices.
  • On a computer display or an iPad or tablet adjusting the size of the font, the contrast and the resolution of the display
  • Configuring your workstation to be ergonomically viable. What that means is having your computer at the proper height with relation to your sitting position.
  • Adjusting the ambient lighting in the room where you are working.
  • Not staring at your device for endless hours. This means taking a short break every two hours or less.

    Secret weapons

    The secret arsenal includes things like special lenses or eyeglasses. These are lenses that have special filaments in them that filter out both blue light and radiation emitted from electronic devices. Others include special lightbulbs. Lightbulbs that emit low levels of blue light. Or light bulbs treated to block out blue light. The third and most practical secret weapon is a blue light filter screen protector. A blue light filter screen protector like the one at BlueLightShield does not require the need for special eyeglasses or special light-bulbs for each room. It is a screen protector that will filter blue light emitted from your electronic devices 24/7. Once installed nothing else needs to be done.

    The reason we say secret devices is because these are protective devices that very few members of the public are aware of. Below are links to many of the different “secret weapons”. Taking a few minutes to research what you can do to protect yourself will pay itself back in better vision and overall health. This is something that should really be concerning everyone. Since everyone spends the better part of their day using their cell phones, iPads, tablets and laptops computers. It is best if we get out in front this. We can battle the problems associated with exposure to both the radiation and blue light. Just knowing how is the key.
