What is blue light?

Sunlight is made up of a spectrum of various colors including orange, red, yellow, blue, and green light rays. Each of the light rays has its own levels of energy and wavelengths.

It has been scientifically proven that when these blue rays reach a wavelength of between 415 and 455 nm they get extremely harmful for the eyes health of individuals as they easily penetrate through the retina of the eye, causing premature eye ageing and vision problems in the future.

What are the benefits and negatives of the blue light rays?

Although it has been widely known that blue rays are extremely harmful for the eyes, but, they aren’t all negative as we take them so. Some blue light exposure is necessary in a sense that it improves your memory and mood, regulates your circadian rhythm and maintains healthy eye development for children of all ages.
