Prevent Blindness declares March as Workplace Eye Wellness Month to Educate on Ways to Protect Your Vision on the Job. The article highlights the dangers of blue light, digital devices and vision, and eye injury prevention in order to promote eye health at work.
The main source of blue light exposure is from the sun, but blue light is also emitted from your television screens, computer monitors, smart phones, and tablet screens. Over exposure to blue light can cause digital eye strain and possible retinal damage. Protective covers for digital phones, tablets and computer monitors that reduce exposure to harmful digital UV and blue light are available to help protect your vision.
“As we spend more and more time on digital devices, at work or at play, we need to make sure we take care of our vision,” said Hugh R. Parry, president and CEO of Prevent Blindness. “By talking to an eye care professional and getting the proper recommendations, we can make sure we protect our eyes for the future.”
