No matter where we go, we are surrounded by blue light. On the visible EM spectrum, blue light is one of the highest intensity of the lights that people can perceive. Although blue light can help us regulate the difference between day and night, our vision doesn’t have the appropriate filter to reduce how much blue light enters our eyes.
Digital devices also emit blue light, which is stronger than the light emitted from the Sun. The question now is, would this light cause eye damage? Is it a good idea to get a protective Blue light coating added to your kid’s glasses?

How do the Glasses offer Protection from blue light?

Glasses that have UV protection and also blue light blocking can offer eye protection against harmful rays of light from the Sun. When you sit in front of a screen you or your child is less likely to wear a pair of sunglasses.
Blue light glasses, with or without prescription, work by filtering out the blue light before reaching your eyes. This particular coating is also beneficial to reduce glare, which can further reduce additional strain on your or your child’s vision.
