If you are concerned about your children’s health, we advise you not to allow them to use your smartphone all day. Instead, you should help them follow the popular 20/20 rule. This principle is very simple and useful. After 10 minutes of staring at your kids or phone tablet screens, ask your kids to look 20 feet away from the screen for at least 20 seconds.
Another alternative is to buy protective glasses. They offer a great degree of protection. Plus, they don’t cost much.
If you don’t know, blue light is a visible light that, unlike other wavelengths, has the properties of low wavelengths and high levels of energy. Below are some common sources of this wavelength.
Smartphones, tablets and computer screens
Although we do not have strong evidence that this wavelength can damage your children’s eyes, we cannot take the risk because it can have long-term side effects.
Do glasses protect their eyes?
Spending a few minutes in the sun is healthy for your children. In fact, regular exposure to the sun can help reduce the risk of your children being diagnosed with myopia.
Although some sun is good for the human eye and body, excessive exposure can damage the retina over long distances. According to research studies, children are at higher risk of retinal damage due to constant exposure to blue light.
In addition, long-term exposure to this wavelength year after year can lead to vision problems after the age of 30. This condition can result in loss of vision.
Screen time for children
Blue light is more visible when children are out. However, if your children spend most of their time looking at computer screens, they may suffer from digital Austrian, or computer vision syndrome. Here are some common symptoms of this condition in children:
In addition to these, there are other dangers of prolonged exposure to such light. Therefore, we recommend that you take appropriate steps to protect your children’s eyesight.
