Too many screens, blue light... clarifications.

We definitely spend a lot of time in front of our screens, whether they are computers, TVs, smartphones or other tablets.

The blue light that everyone is talking about and which is said to be the source of many problems, is a real eye-opener!

Let's try to get a clearer picture.

All these screens make your eyes tired. Eye strain can reduce your energy. Many people who work on computers for long periods of time complain of dryness, burning and stinging eyes. Working on screens can also cause headaches and neck and back pain.

What about blue light?

Blue light is an integral part of the sun's light spectrum. It ranges from turquoise blue (good for our mood) to dark violet (potentially dangerous for our eyes) and has a wavelength of 380 to 500 nanometres, long enough to reach some of our cells, including those in the retina. To give you an order of magnitude, UVB rays, the ones that cause sunburn, have a wavelength of 275 to 325 nanometres... Except that we don't feel those of the light, so there is no alarm signal!

This blue light is also emitted in an artificial way by the light sources of which are the screens. We are thus more and more exposed, and this, since childhood for the new generations.

How can you preserve your health by limiting fatigue and that of your eyes that are too exposed?

Some basic gestures

  • Look away from your screen for fifteen seconds every quarter of an hour.
  • Humidify the air in the room.
  • As far as possible, respect a maximum of 6 hours of screen time per day and give yourself breaks.
