BLOG: Become your community's blue light expert

April 14, 2015

In my last post I discussed that awareness of blue light is growing among our patients.

Mainstream media stories are taking on the subject of blue light and its health consequences head on. I have seen stories in the lay press regarding blue light and age-related macular degeneration, blue light and visual performance and, just recently, a piece on blue light and sleep disturbance.  On April 9, ABC News’ Good Morning America ran a piece on wearing “orange-tinted glasses” before bed when looking at electronic devices. While overall the piece was well done, there was something that was unsettling to me.
