DIGITAL EYE STRAIN
Exposure to digital screens and blue light leads to digital eye strain. Over 60 percent of Americans surveyed by The Vision Council say they experience digital eye strain and the symptoms include: red itchy dry eyes, blurred vision, eye fatigue, neck pain, and headaches. Parents should be especially cautious about exposing their children to blue light because their developing eyes are more sensitive.
Your natural sleep pattern is regulated by the amount of light you are exposed to and since our eyes are constantly receiving blue light throughout the day, the body doesn't know when to get ready for sleep. Blue light suppresses the production of the sleep hormone melatonin, which can reduce both the quantity and quality of your sleep.
Blue light can do harm to your skin because it penetrates all the way to the dermis and can damage the collagen and elastin cells. Collagen gives skin strength while elastin enables skin to stretch and bounce back. The skin also does a lot of natural night time repair so if you are not getting enough sleep, it can lead to pre-mature skin aging.
