3 tips to protect your children from blue light

We spend on average 6 hours a day in front of a screen: television, telephone, computer, video console… Children are not spared. On the contrary, the presence of screens in their daily lives is increasingly strong, even at school.

What is blue light?

Sunlight and artificial light sources are characterized by spectra. These light spectra are measured with wavelengths corresponding to color bands. The most aggressive for the eyes is the blue-violet light which is located just before the ultraviolet ray. Screens emit a significant amount of blue light, and our use impacts the visual health of our eyes. Children are particularly sensitive to it.

What is the impact of blue light on children?

Blue light causes visual stress, red or irritated eyes, eye fatigue and even insomnia.

Children, whose eye systems are under construction, are even more vulnerable. They must also be protected from this blue-violet light which is harmful to cells and the retina. Furthermore, preventing your children's eyes from being exposed to blue rays helps prevent, in the long term, the appearance of eye diseases such as AMD, cataracts, etc.

How to protect your children from blue light?

Follow these tips to protect your child's eyes from blue light from screens:

Equip your children with prescription glasses with anti-blue light treatment. Whether your child needs glasses to correct their vision or not, there are non-prescription lenses whose sole purpose is to effectively protect against screen light. This treatment helps to accentuate contrasts, reduce visual fatigue and protect the eyes from the harmful effects of blue light and UV rays.

Use low intensity LED bulbs.

Avoid leaving your children too close to screens for prolonged periods.
