Ocushield - Anti Blue Light Kids Unisex Glasses & UV Filtering Technology - Kids Size
How does bluelight affect younger eyes?
Blue light is a segment of the visible light spectrum responsible for keeping you alert. It's naturally present in sunlight but it is also concentrated in the light that comes out of your digital devices. Prolonged exposure is proven to cause eye strain, headaches and problems with sleep.
Screen time amongst kids nowadays has increased significantly. Whilst we at Ocushield do not seek to change that, our mission is to protect as many young eyes in the modern, screen dominated world as possible.
Blue light glasses for children
You may be wondering, what exactly is Blue light? This high frequency light penetrates young retinas, giving their brain a cue that it's time to wake up and seize the day. Extended exposure to blue light can result in retinal cell death, headaches, dry eyes and fatigue. These are all common symptoms of blue light exposure in children.
Plus, by restricting the production of melatonin (the chemical which helps us sleep) blue light disrupts the natural sleep cycles of kids, causing lethargy, irritability and a drop in focus. Yikes!
What are blue light glasses, and how do they work? Here at Ocushield our mission is to protect as many eyes as possible in the digital age. Whilst our eye experts already produce blue light blocking glasses for adults, we wanted to ensure younger eyes which are in greater need of blue light protection, are covered as well.
These FDA registered anti blue light glasses effectively block up to 99% of harmful UV & blue light emissions from reaching young eyes and between 300-400nm and up to 54% of harmful blue light between 400-470nm.
