Spending most of your days in front of digital devices such as your cell phone, iPad, computer, or television screen is phenomenon has only happened recently and rapidly become the norm.
Your eyes, though, unfortunately have not adapted to this radical change in habit.
There are potential short-term, medium- term, and long-term problems for your eye health.
Even though your eyes were not made for digital devices, Mott Optical Group have lenses that are.
Blue light suppresses Melatonin; a chemical your brain releases that regulates the circadian rhythm or your biological clock. If you look at digital devices at night without a blue light filter, you are essentially tricking your brain to think it is still light out.
That means blue light would throw off your sleep cycle and you'll be tired but can't fall asleep or vice versa.
A long-term, more worrisome effect of prolonged blue light exposer is the development of macular degeneration: an un-curable form of blindness where spots appear in your sight.
Just like how UV causes Cataracts, high exposure to blue light has been linked to macular degeneration.
The Mott Optical Group offers a few solutions to help you see better in front of your digital devices.
The first option we have are lenses with anti-blue light block properties.
