Harmful Blue Light, is virtually everywhere  – indoors and out: computer screens, tablets, smart phones, gaming devices, LED TVs & LED lights, fluorescent lights, and of course from the sun.

While Blue Light has always been present outdoors, the fact that we are living longer and our lifestyles are evolving means that we more exposed to Harmful Blue Light because we are spending more time on electronic devices, which puts us more at risk for eye diseases.
