Blue Light Center of Excellence

hoya 300×160The average American now spends 37 hours a week staring at electronic devices like smartphones, tablets, computers, and digital TVs. These devices emit high energy blue light (HEV) which has been shown to cause a number of health risks including disruption of the sleep cycle and early onset of macular degeneration (AMD). Additionally, most of these devices emit blue light rays that can cause eyestrain, headaches, and fatigue. Shirley Eye Care now offers blue blocking lenses that reduce the amount of harmful light that reaches the back of the eye. These lenses help to alleviate eyestrain, headaches, fatigue, and can even improve sleeping patterns. Ask Dr. Shirley how blue light may be affecting you, and how these lenses can help.
