Now we already knew that it is true as our routine life will be missed out without connecting ourselves with this kind of latest technologies such as smartphones, laptop, computer, TV, ipad and many more. But do we aware of the negative impact of using smartphones or any other devices without knowing the proper fact and features about it?

To keep your view much clearer and focused, lights do play an important role to make sure you received a sharp and clear clarity image. However, the blue light in particular may be toxic for your eyes.

Scientists from The University of Toledo have discovered that how blue light emitted from your technology has a potential to lead to an eye disease such as macular degeneration —known as one of the leading causes of vision loss in the United States. Macular degeneration occurs due to the result of photoreceptor cell death in the retina. Its not a new thing for us to know that blue light harms our vision by damaging the retinal layer of our eye.

Photoreceptors cells are function to capture visual images and signal them to the brain using an eye molecule named retinal. Blue lights will get triggered by the retinal produced by our eye and it causes various chemical reactions. These reactions produced by the chemical mechanism can be poisonous to our eyes. Thus, when these photoreceptor cells die, there’s no regeneration.

But, do not freak out! There are many ways for us to avoid all these to happen. Protecting yourself may seem as easy as avoiding blue light — but it may not be that straightforward. That is why we need to always set our screen time accordingly. Also be aware of the brightness of your view from screens, your sitting posture and environment reflections.
