Blue Light

Blue light has been a topic for a long time, but it is becoming more and more relevant as studies are done showing the harmful effects it has.
·       Blue light exists in the 400-500 nanometer within the light spectrum
·       Lenses that protect from blue light have been used for some time to help people with macular degeneration.
 Blue light is not only produced by all tech devices (anything that shows an image in color vs black and white), but is 200% stronger from the sun
·       Yes most polarized lenses do a good job blocking blue light outside, wearing cheap sunglasses or none at all is dangerous, just like no wearing sunscreen.
·       Apple and Samsung have been incorporating blue light filter settings into their tech devices for more than 5 years, yet almost no one knows that setting exists.
·       More recent studies show that the strongest blue light wavelength is around 435 nanometers, so blocking all of it may not be necessary.
I have attached a study from Harvard
·       Blue light is said to cause eyestrain, disrupt circadian rhythm, and suppress the production of melatonin, which is scary, specifically in children.
·       Before we knew about the damage the sun did, we didn’t wear sunscreen.  When we started wearing sunscreen it was only SPF15 and we thought that was enough, now people wear SPF 75……………..it’s a similar concept as blue light, some don’t believe it’s a problem at all.
·       If professional gaming is going to be a real thing, when are we going to start protecting the eyes of those who game.  Re I have attached a study from Harvard

Video Games

Video games are a billion-dollar business and have been for many years. In 2016, the video game market in the United States was valued at 17.68 billion U.S. dollars. That same year U.S. consumers were said to spend roughly double the amount on gaming content, hardware and accessories. What is important is that the first generation of gamers is now grown up with significant spending power; therefore, despite high penetration rates among kids, video games can no longer be considered solely a child’s play. In fact, it was found that video gaming is gaining on popularity among the seniors in the United States. Fun and mental agility are among the main reasons cited by the older gamers as to why they choose this pastime. Statista.com
