Q&A with Our Optometric Team
Our Optometrists Answer Your Eyecare Questions
1. Are electronic devices really unhealthy for my eyes or is it all hype?
Dr. Christine Bartoletti Responds:
Electronic devices such as computer screens, laptops, tablets, smart phones and televisions are strong emitters of blue light (400-500 nm) which recent studies have shown can be harmful to the eye when over exposed. Cumulative lifetime exposure to blue light causes photo-oxidative stress in retinal cells that is a contributing factor to the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Blue light does have some beneficial properties in that it coordinates our circadian rhythm and helps with mood, however even that can be thrown off by over use of these types of electronics. For patients that use a lot of electronics through the majority of their day and children who use a lot of electronics we, at Vista Eye Care, recommend a non-glare coating on glasses that can also block blue light coming from the devises. There is still a lot of research to be done on this topic and we have yet to see the long term effects of the increased exposure to blue light but we feel that with these types of coatings available to block blue light, it is important to make our patients aware of the potential risks and of the protection we can provide.
Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses is an important part of good eye care services. However, even if your vision is sharp, it is important to have regular eye exams with an optometrist. Whether you need a eye exam, an eyeglasses fitting, treatment for an eye disease (such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, or diabetic retinopathy) or even eye surgery such as LASIK or cataract surgery, our eye doctors will provide you with expert care, advice, options and follow up.
