Blue light- again?
March is Save Your Vision Month, so I wanted to revisit the blue light topic. Too much high energy blue light IS bad for your eyes. It’s also bad for your sleep habits as well. So, the American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends …
- Power down before you turn in: Turn your digital devices off at least one hour before bed.
- Unplug with the AOA 20-20-20 rule: When you are using any device or computer, make a conscious effort every day to take a 20-second break and look away from the screen, every 20 minutes and view something 20 feet away.
- Step back: Maintain a comfortable working distance from your digital device by using the zoom feature to see small print and details, rather than bringing the device closer to your eyes.
- Adjust your device to fit your needs: The AOA recommends reducing the glare by adjusting device settings or using a glare filter to decrease the amount of blue light reflected from the screen.
- Schedule an appointment: See Dr. Kaminski once a year for a comprehensive eye exam to detect and address vision problems.
