Blue Light comes with a very short wavelength which makes it a very powerful, high energy light. Exposure to blue light increase the production of free radicals – free radicals are unstable atoms that cause damage to cells.
Unlike most other lights blue light penetrates directly to the retina of your eyes which is where eye problems usually start.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are antioxidants found in the eye that help block and absorb blue light. These antioxidants also protect your eyes from free radicals.
