Kids and screen time has always been a sensitive topic for parents. And now with e-learning and everything digital, kids on an average are spending 4 hours in front of the gadgets and susceptible to get a digital eye strain.
But before going further we need to understand - What is blue light?
A high energy light wave, blue light is usually emitted by sun and digital screens, LED and Fluorescent lights.
While a small amount is actually good for our eyes and slows down myopia, it is the long term exposure that causes eye strain and can even lead to a damaged retina.
How to know if my child has digital eye strain?
Common symptoms of strained eyes -
- Blurry vision
- Dry eyes

But you don’t need to go all crazy on them and put away their gadgets. All you need is to manage their screen time and blue light glasses.
But do these glasses even work?
Anti-blue glasses reduce exposure to blue light ultraviolet rays by almost 80-percent and are available with/without prescription.
Along with blue light glasses, blinking often, following the 20-20-20 rule (every twenty minutes, look twenty feet away for twenty seconds), setting the computer monitor such that it is right below the eyes, yet at an angle that doesn't strain the eye, can also help children avoid digital eye strain.
