Smartphones, Blue Light and Your Eyes

smartphoneAre you worried about your vision when you check your Instagram? A recent study from the University of Toledo showed that blue light from a screen is not actually causing any damage.

Rumors flooded the internet recently claiming that blue light from smartphones was blinding people. The researchers studied blue light’s effect on retinal, a specific chemical. While this chemical is present in the eye, the experiment didn’t follow what happens in real life.

While there are still concerns about smartphone use and eyes, this study is promising for those who love keeping up with their friends on Instagram and Facebook. You won’t go blind.

If you have any questions about your eyes and blue light, feel free to contact our doctors to schedule an appointment.
