Due to the increase use of electronics, there is increased exposure to harmful blue light from these devices. Computer monitors, laptops, tablets, smart phones, LED TVs and compact fluorescent bulbs emit blue light.  Lets face it, we are not going to be giving up our digital devices anytime soon.  In addition, cumulative exposure to blue light can suppress melatonin and disrupt the natural sleep cycle.

Ave Daily Digital device use

 

Children and Teens tend to hold digital devices closer and their larger pupils let in more of the harmful blue light. Studies show this may put them at higher risk for developing sleep disorders, behavioral problems, obesity, and vision loss.
