Millions Could Be at Risk of Eye Damage, According to Study

London, UK – Over 43% of 18-24 year olds in the UK could be at risk of eye damage through overexposure to their laptop, tablet, or smartphone screens. This is according to a survey by Ocushield which also revealed that only 35% of young Britons avoid screens in the 30 minutes before they go to sleep.

Optical experts have long warned that overexposure to screens emitting blue light could cause sleep problems and eye damage . They claim that the blue light which comes from smartphones, laptops and tablets is “toxic” to the back of the eyes and may lead to macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness, though further research is needed.
