We live totally surrounded by screens, spending almost nine hours a day, on average, in front of digital devices. All these devices emit blue light, and since our eyes aren’t protected against this overexposure, the light can be detrimental – say specialists from barnerbrand.com.
Some spin-off effects of spending so much time in front of the monitor include eye strain, insomnia, headaches, and fatigue.
In order to prevent these negative effects professionals recommend:
1. Blink more
2. Use a comfortable ergonomic chair
3. Wear high-quality computer glasses
4. Exercise your eyes every 20-30 minutes.
Blue light from cell phones and laptop screens – among other electronic devices – causes irreversible damage to sight. Various studies have stated that it influences circadian rhythms, causing sleep disturbances. For this reason, it is necessary to make rational use of mobile devices, especially in children and adolescents, to avoid using them in the hours before bed and use screen glasses during the day.
