Negative Effects of Blue Light?

by Andrew Morgenstern, OD, Conni Koury, Editor in Chief, Walt Whitley, OD

It is estimated that the average adult spends 8 hours per day exposed to screens on their digital devices. Recent studies suggest that the blue light emitted from these screens could lead to problems such as digital eye strain. Walt argues why it is important for optometrists to be proactive and explains that this is a health concern for patients. Andy asserts that, until evidence-based research is conducted that proves the long-term negative effects of blue light, it is not as harmful to the population as people think.
