Many parents spend a lot of time and money in making sure their children's health is at its optimum, however when it comes to protecting your child from blue light that is one thing many parents overlook.

Is Blue Light Harmful To Your Child?

Simple physics shows blue light as a constituent of the light spectrum that is emitted by artificial and natural sources like the sun. The artificial sources of blue light are: smartphones, computer screens and LED light. Parents need to be worried about blue light since the kids tend to absorb blue light much faster than adults. The kids tend to have a weaker protection system for their eyesight which is still developing compared to matured adults. The more exposed your children are to blue light the more clarity of their vision will be affected negatively.

Research shows that prolonged exposure to the blue light has contributed to age-related conditions affecting the eyes like macular degeneration and cataracts. These conditions ultimately lead to permanent blindness. Another health issue linked to blue light is insomnia by tampering with the production of the melatonin hormone.

So, when is the right time for your child to get computer glasses? Most parents don’t realize or keep track of how often their children use the digital device. This means your child might be having a higher level of exposure of blue light than you know. Below are clear signs that will show you that it is the right time for your child to start wearing computer glasses.

(1) Time Spent On Their Desktop or Laptop

In case your child spends more time on their computers then they are at a higher risk of developing the CVS condition. Kids spending more than 2-hour son their laptops are at 90% risk of developing computer vision syndrome (CVS) which is caused by blue light. Using digital block coatings found on computer glasses will control the glare from the computer screen and the blue light emitted by the artificial sources. This will protect your kids' eyes from the harsh glare hence no chances of them developing CVS.

(2) Do they text faster

If texting were a competitive sport, trust me many teenagers will be enrolled in the texting Olympic. Teenagers have the ability to text and type super-fast, not to mention their ability to navigate through the different applications on their phones.  Teenagers have the superpower ability to use their phones and using other digital devices in the house at the same time. The simultaneous screen time needs constant attention from a person's vision. With time this superpower ability of multitasking between these screens eventually starts having a negative effect on the eyesight of your child. The next step would be to equip them with superpower eyewear, have them wear computer glasses that have an anti-blue light protective coating and anti-reflective coatings.  With their new eyewear, they can enjoy their multi texting and multi-screening ability with no worry at all of damaging their eyesight.

Many big companies invest a lot of money on social media. The same applies to celebrities and other public figures. Then you realize that your child has a better social media game than even the best cloth line in the country. A  recent study showed that most teenagers dedicate a minimum of 9 hours to social media compared to the 7 hours which they need to get sleep. More time on social media and less sleep will ultimately lead to blurred vision and fatigue.  Without the appropriate eyewear, the vision of your child will start deteriorating.

(4) Video gaming or watching the TV seems more fun to outdoor activities

A lot of studies and researches have been done to show the relation between outdoor activities and myopia. Findings from these studies concluded that more time that kids spend outside increases their chances of developing myopia. The case was more severe on children who lived in the urban areas. It's almost Christmas and many teenagers will prefer to be gifted with gadgets instead of being taken to the park to have some fun. The level of video gaming among teenagers is very intense and requires concentration and plenty of focus. If your child loves video gaming then you need to be worried. The smaller the screen of the device they are using the more concentration they need to see all those hard to see details. While larger screens mean a more exposure to blue light. Soon or later your pro gamer will start suffering from fatigue and headaches.  But wearing computer glasses allow them to enjoy gaming for longer with no fatigue or headaches.  The computer glasses also play an important role in adjusting the lighting conditions of the video game they are playing.

(5) TV watching time

How many hours does your child spend watching the TV? All TV sets are known to emit blue light. Whether you have an LED or an LCD TV set, you will still be exposed to blue light. If you are planning on having a family movie night, it's best to have computer glasses for everyone.

The good thing about computer glasses is that your children do not require a prescription to have computer glasses. If your child already has been prescribed with computer glasses, then you just need to anti blue coating and anti-reflective so that they can effectively manage their hyperopia, astigmatism, and progression of their myopia.
