New York, NY – Sunlight is dangerous to human eyes, and researchers say it for many years. Doctors always recommend putting on protection over your eyes before going outdoor in daylight time. Still some manufacturers of lamps claim that the lamps duplicating sunlight are good for your health and eyes.
Multiple studies mentioned that blue light in between 400 and 500 nm, only one part accounts for visible light. Emissions from sunlight, mobile screens, computer screens and artificial lamps can cause severe damage because they increase toxin in the macular region of the eyes. The higher amount of energy from blue emissions accelerates the crystalline lens turning yellow and slowly whitens and forms cataracts.
Senior citizen and children under the age of 14 are most affected by harmful blue light. People working in the office and students are at risk of cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, vision loss or blurred visions because of the dangerous blue light. Blue wavelengths suppress delta brainwaves, which are responsible for inducing sleep. Also, alpha wavelengths which create alertness in the human body get boosted. So, if anyone has insomnia or sleep deprivation, it might be due to blue emissions.
Exposure to UV and blight can cause damage to the retina as well as overall health. People who work, reads and studies with lighting should rectify this issue.
Let’s go through some of the tips recommended by several ophthalmologists which will reduce your exposure to blue lights:
- The light should be directly proportional to CCT or correlated color temperature at the range of 3000K-4,800 for eye safety.
- CRI or color rendering index should be 80 at least for right color
- The brightness range should be in between 1000-2000 LUX at 12 inches (30 cm).
- Eye strain can be alleviated using a lamp with dimmer switch.
- Lighting with easily adjustable fixture can be used to prevent glare.
- Easily accessible fixture controls’ operation and locations should be there.
- Coverage diameter of at least 12 inches (30 cm) at a distance of 12 inches (30 cm) should be there.
- Ensure that it has a sturdy construction for durability and safety.
