Blue Light Side Effects
Blue light can affect a child’s sleep patterns since it confuses the brain into thinking the sun is still in the sky and disrupts the body’s ability to produce melatonin, the chemical needed to fall asleep. A child without sleep is not a very productive or thoughtful child. Even more than reducing the ability to sleep easily, a decrease in melatonin can lead to: an increased risk for cancer, a damaged immune system, and a higher possibility for cardiometabolic diseases like Type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and metabolic syndrome. Moreover, blue light damages the retinal cells which can lead to macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in adults.

 

What To Do About It
At a time in our world when technology is very prevalent, it’s unreasonable to ask children not to use these technological devices. They’re used in schools for education, at home for entertainment, and in public for customer service. Instead, purchase Bluebies for your kiddos. Bluebies are created with sapphire blue lenses that block the harmful UV rays from penetrating the eye. However, the look of the lense remains clear so as to not obstruct the vision. Bluebies come in stylish frames and are a simple way to save the health of your child’s eyes.
Don’t run the risk of adult blindness! Prevent eye damage due to technology now by ordering Bluebies glasses for your children. Please contact us to discuss prescription glasses with blue light blocking technology.
