The Truth About Light Blue Blocking (ARMD) and Age-Related Macular Degeneration
While you might have your Ultraviolet Light Dangers covered by sunglasses, what about Blue Light Dangers. This information is vital to understanding the use of Light Blue Blocking Glasses in preventing Age-Related Macular Degeneration.
It is difficult to age well. Your body may begin to deteriorate faster if you have more time. Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) is one example of a potential malady.
This eye condition is a common one and a major cause of vision loss in people over 50, according to the National Institute of Health (NIH). It damages the macula (a small area near the retina that is responsible for sharp central vision ),
What are the Symptoms?
Blurred vision is a sign of this malady. If the macula is severely damaged, it may not heal. This blurred area can grow and cause "blank spots" in your central sight. It is possible for objects to appear dull.
Because you can't focus, depth perception could be an issue. You might also have difficulties reading or cooking.
What are the Causes
Ultraviolet Rays, which are emitted from the sun by the destruction of the ozone layer have begun to rise. Blue Light is emitted by all electronic devices. Both of these harmful light frequencies can be found all around us.
Exposure to both Ultraviolet light and Blue Light can cause irreversible damage to your retina. This could increase your chance of developing macular disease. Ultraviolet or Blue Light are not common and can be difficult to manage for sensitive eyes.
Normal light spectrum for humans ranges between 400-700 nanometers. The frequencies of blue and ultraviolet light colours are shorter than this, between 290 to 400 nanometers. Harmful X-Rays can be found at levels even lower.
These low-light frequencies contain more energy than others. These frequencies are known as High Energy Visible (HEV). These powerful HEV rays can cause severe damage to your retina and macula if they are not protected.
Harvard Medical School found that high energy visible (HEV) blue light is harmful to the retina. It can cause macular degenerations, retinal degenerative diseases, and glaucoma.
How can light blue blocking glasses help?
The Light computer eye strain glasses protect 100% against the Ultraviolet Rays, and 40% from the Blue Rays. These glasses protect your eyes and allow them to focus. Your risk of developing ARMD is reduced by our glasses.
As you get older, your chances of developing health problems increase. These problems can be prevented by being wise and taking precautions. The Blue Light Blocking glasses can give your eyes a fighting chance with their help!
