Blue Light & Kids
Our kids spend an amazing amount of time on digital devices.
Whether they’re playing games, browsing the internet, studying or watching their favourite movies, children and teenagers today are spending more time in front of screens than any generation before them.
It’s an unavoidable fact of modern life – kids rely on technology to live, work and play.
Protection for developing eyes
While blue light can have a significant impact on adult eyes, children are even more susceptible to the effects of blue light from digital devices.
When we are born, the crystalline lens in our eyes which is used to focus on objects is clear. As the years go by, the lens gradually yellows with age due to UV and blue light exposure.
Children also possess a low amount of macular pigment which acts as the natural blue light filter in our eyes. This macular pigment only becomes sufficient after the child grows to about 9 years old. In addition to this, a child’s eyes have larger pupils than an adult, hence more light enters the eye and reaches the retina.
As a parent, you’ll already be familiar with the impact of a sleepless night on your child’s mood and ability to focus – vital contributors to their daily development whether socialising in the playground or learning in the classroom.
Developed by qualified optometrists, our screen protectors for smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops effectively block harmful blue light emissions. And unlike apps and ‘night mode’ settings, PERFECTSIGHT does this without discolouring your screen.
With all of that blue light being absorbed before it can reach your child’s eyes, they’ll experience less discomfort while using digital devices and have a more restful night’s sleep at the end of each action-packed day.
