How Digital Devices Affect Your Eyes

There are a few factors to consider when it comes to digital eye strain. A combination of elements create the symptoms listed above – many of which we have become so used to, we don’t even notice them anymore.

Blue Light

Blue light is part of the visible spectrum, which we were previously only exposed to by the sun. This light is now emitted through almost all of our digital devices. Our brains use blue light to regulate our sleeping patterns and circadian rhythm.

If your eyes are receiving blue light in the evenings, your brain may have trouble shutting down properly. This can result in poor sleep and the disruption of your circadian rhythm, making you tired throughout the day.
