BEWARE: SMART PHONES AND TABLETS MAY DAMAGE YOUR EYES

In this modern world with the latest tech devices, prolonged exposure to smartphones, tablets, computers and flat screen TV’s can lead to long term damage of your eyes.

Why? Blue violet light. Blue light is naturally present in sunlight and also contains blue turquoise light which is beneficial to our health and plays a vital role in regulating our biological clocks. However, extensive exposure to blue-violet light can disrupt sleep patterns and affect our mood. Blue violet light emitted from smart phones and tablets can penetrate the eye and cause internal damage putting us at greater risk of macular degeneration which is a leading cause of blindness. Other effects include eye strain and headaches.

To protect your eyes from the these effects, talk to your eye care professional about Crizal Prevencia, a lens coating that will essentially block these harmful blue wavelengths from entering the eye.
