About blue light

High energy blue light is more prevalent in LED (light emitting diode) light sources. LED lights are found in computer/ laptop screens, TVs, smart phones, tablet computers and increasingly in light bulbs. Increased use of these LED devices is increasing our exposure to high energy blue light. This has prompted the new research into the potential harmful effects of blue light.
