Can you see the sky above in blue colour? This is because the Blue light is what makes it appear blue in colour. We know that there are seven colours that form part of the light. You might have seen them through prism during your childhood in science experiments. Blue light is one of the parts of the light itself.
Blue light has a shorter wavelength in the visible spectrum and therefore, it is visible to the eyes. This incredible quality of blue light makes it unique because of its visibility to the naked eyes. One of the natural sources of blue light is the sun. When sunlight is scattered to the earth, it also brings blue light on the surface of the earth.
The amount of blue light present in the sunlight is suitable for the human body and is not harmful. This is because the presence of blue light helps in the secretion and regulating the Melatonin hormone of the body. This hormone is responsible to maintain the sleeping cycle in humans. When it is day-time, the presence of blue light keeps us awake. Similarly, after sun-set and in the dark, when there is an absence of blue light, the Melatonin hormone helps to induce us to sleep. This way the blue light is helpful for maintaining the circadian rhythm i.e. the sleeping and awake cycle of the human body.
However, when the sun goes down, we still get to access the blue light in our surroundings through LED lights, fluorescent lights, digital devices etc. Therefore, it has become impossible for us to escape the blue light. Even at our homes, the presence of LED bulbs reflects blue light. Hence, our body assumes that it is day time and the reaction of Melatonin hormone keeps us awake. This is the reason why many of us complain of sleeplessness, insomnia, difficulty to sleep sound, etc.
How blue light is harmful?
The excessive and extended use of blue light is harmful, that is to say, there are many ill effects of blue light on the human body. Of course, apart from the sleeping disorder, there are other side-effects too due to the exposure of blue light.
We all are equipped with digital devices like computer, laptop, tablets, smartphones, iPad, etc. throughout the day and night for work, entertainment and other daily tasks. These are one of the culprits who reflects blue light to an extent that it is harmful. These screen devices when used for extended hours such as at work where we get to expose ourselves to these blue light reflecting devices for 8 to 10 hours on an average, we are bound to be affected by them.
Blue light from digital screen devices is extremely harmful to our eyes. The sensitive natural lens of the eye is unable to filter or block the blue light rays from entering the eyes. Once blue light enters the eyes, it reaches the retina and causes severe eye health issues which include digital eye-stress, pain, weakness, redness, retinal damage. Sometimes, the muscles of the eyes are strained enough to cause headache or what is known as digital migraine. These issues are faced by computer and mobile users world-wide.
