High Energy Blue Light and Eye Health

Blue Light and Eye Health

What is Blue Light?

Blue light is the highest energy wavelength of visible light, close to UV on the light spectrum. Studies suggest that excessive long-term exposure to the blue end of the spectrum could damage your eyes’ health.

Where does it come from?

Blue light is actually part of our daily life. It is naturally produced by the sun. Other blue light sources include: fluorescent light bulbs, LEDs present in computer screens, tablets, smartphones, and electronic devices.

Excessive exposure to this artificial light is concerning as studies show a link to eye health problems.

Test yourself! Are you exposed?

What about LED lighting? Are you exposed at work or at home?
Do you use electronic devices such as smart phones, tablets and laptops for more than six hours per day?
Do you use your phone, tablet or laptop before going to bed?
If your daily diet high in leafy greens?

Why and How excessive blue light exposure affects your eye health?

Blue light penetrates deep into the eye reaching the retina, which is the tissue that lines the back of the eye and contains the light sensing cells that send visual signals to the brain.

The macula is the central part of the retina responsible for focusing central vision in the eye, and it controls the ability to read, drive a car, recognise faces or colours, and see objects in fine detail. When the retina is affected, those visual functions may be compromised.

Nutrition and lifestyle

Natural foods including vegetables, fruits, fish, eggs, amongst other foods, contain the needed nutrition for essential body functions.

Some of these foods are particularly high in nutrients that help maintain healthy eyes. These include carrots, leafy vegetables and fish.

Supplementing a healthy diet may also help protect your eyes and your family’s eyes from blue light high intensity exposure.

Essential Nutrients for Eye Health

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are clinically proven nutrients that offer protective benefits to support eye health.

Research shows that supplementing may be beneficial when average dietary intake of Lutein and Zeaxanthin is inadequate.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin support the eye health by

  1. acting as powerful antioxidants and
  2. filtering high energy blue light as “natural sunglasses”

Dietary sources and nutritional supplements are the only way to get these nutrients because the body cannot synthesize them.

The recommended ratio of Lutein and Zeaxanthin is 5:1 for adults. Recent studies show health benefits in taking 10mg of lutein and 2mg of zeaxanthin a day.
