I noticed when I got a new computer at work with a LED screen. My eyes would be strained after a couple hours of working. I did my best to take mini breaks often. But still the eye strain remained. Found some articles that talked about blue light from the screen being the main culprit. I looked into screen films that block out a majority of the blue light. But I didn’t want to spend money on that at the moment. So I looked at programs that would actually greatly reduce blue light on computers & mobile devices. It does make a difference. Prior to using these programs, my eyes would be bloodshot at the end of the work day. Since I started using the programs, no bloodshot eyes at all. Sometimes my eyes feel a little tired, depending on the day. But a huge improvement! I can’t go back.
Dr. Celia Sanchez-Ramos of Complutense University in Madrid has reported that prolonged, continuous exposure to LED screens could irreversibly damage the retina of your eye, which might lead to macular degeneration and blindness over time. The culprit is intense levels of “blue light.”
According to Dr Sanchez-Ramos, LED screens produced from 2007 onwards emit up to five times more blue light than older versions did.
