What is Blue Light?

Blue light is the highest energy light that is visible to the human eye. The higher energy carried by blue light can cause faster development of cataracts and is a risk for causing damage to the retina in the form of macular degeneration. In the short term, blue light exposure causes eyestrain including dry eye symptoms such as burning and redness. Blue light also plays a significant role in our sleep cycle. It triggers the human body to stay awake by inhibiting the release of melatonin, the hormone responsible for sleep.
