Blue Light

13406884_839178782881486_2078562707797775389_nDid you know that digital devices (laptops, certain e-book reade rs, and tablets) emit BLUE LIGHT that causes short-term and long-term DAMAGE to the body?

In the short-term, blue light disturbs sleep cycles and thus the quality of one’s sleep. Sleep is crucial for restoring mental and physical energy and for the growth/rebuilding of our muscle and skeletal systems. In the long-term, blue light causes macular degeneration, which results in impaired vision.

Patients may order prescription and non-prescription new or existing glasses with Crizal Prevencia blue light protection. Alternatively, patients may order Chemistrie eyewear lenses that clip onto existing frames.
