The Blue Screen of Death is Killing Your Eyeballs and Now We Know How

Put the mobile phone down or lower the light of your phone.

These days use of cell phones is very common. Everybody has their own personal cell phones.  People are on their phones all the time. A survey showed that the average usage of the cell phone is 2 hours and 51 minutes per day, which is approximately 86 hours a month. This is where we need to think. Researchers have found the disturbance in the body circadian beats that lead to the eye problems. One of the major cause of these disruptions is the overuse of mobile phones.  Research has shown that mobile phones emit the light of same high energy as sun emits. These high energy radiations cause the everyday eye problem that leads to glaucoma and then to the loss of vision.

Screens are Killing Your Eyeballs and Now We Know How

A human eye can see a light spectrum ranging from red to violet. The light appears white that contains almost every color. Red light is of longer wavelength and blue is of shorter wavelength. In the recent paper of Journal Scientific reports by Toledo University, it is concluded that blue light cause’s damage to the eye cells which is irreversible.

When we stare at the digital devices especially mobile phones and computers for a long time, high-intensity waves trigger the chemical reactions in the eye cell. These waves cause the retinal molecules to oxidize that create harmful chemicals. These toxic chemicals kill the photoreceptor cells that are called the vehicle of the vision. The damage is irreversible as these cells do not grow back.

Blue light happens normally in daylight, which additionally contains different types of obvious light and bright and infrared beams. Be that as it may, Karunarathne calls attention to, we don’t invest that much energy gazing at the sun. As children, a large portion of us was instructed it would burn our eyes.

Computerized devices, be that as it may represent a greater danger. When we gaze directly at our screens especially at night—particularly unaware—we channel the light into a little zone inside our eyeball. “That can really increase the light produced from the digital device many numerous folds,” Karunarathne says. “When you take the magnifying glass and hold it to the sun, you can perceive how serious the light at the point of convergence gets. You can consume something.

Save Eyes

Apple offers a “night mode” setting on its mobile phones, which enable the users to eliminate the blue and channel their screens through a nightfall shade. Secondary selling items intended to control the convergence of blue light into our irises are additionally accessible, including work area screen defenders.

There are even blue light-separating shades showcased particularly to gamers. Yet, as the harm is done by blue light moves toward becoming clearer. Similarly as our vision is getting blurrier—shoppers may request greater changes.

Going ahead, Karunarathne intends to remain in information accumulation mode. “This is another pattern of taking a gander at our digital devices,” he says. “It will require some investment to check whether and how much harm these devices can cause after some time. At the point when this new age gets more seasoned, the inquiry is, at that point, is the harm done?” But now that he seems to have distinguished a biochemical pathway for blue light harm, he’s likewise searching for new medications. “Who knows. One day we may have the capacity to create eye drops, that on the off chance that you know you will be presented to extreme light, you could utilize a portion of those to lessen harm.”
