Children spend a lot of time staring at screens, be it remote learning, gaming, etc. They too are vulnerable to the effects of Blue Light. Children’s natural lenses do not absorb as much blue light as the adult lens, meaning more of this harmful light reaches their retinas. Children also suffer the symptoms of digital eyestrain when they spend a lot of time in front of screens. Excessive near work also increases the chances of children developing Myopia, so it’s very important to supervise and limit the amount of time they spend in front of screens.
Ready made blue light cutting spectacles are available for children.
