A new study confirms, once again, the risks of light from device screens, especially for children.

A recent research by the University of London has shown that the use of tablets by children between the ages of six months and three years reduce their sleep hours disturbingly.  The result of the study specifically states for each hour children spent on the screen, their night-time sleep was reduced by 26 minutes and they took longer to fall asleep.

The problem, according to the team of researchers, is in the blue light emitted from the screens of smartphones, tablets and computers. This type of radiation confuses the brain's natural rhythm of sleep, contributes to eye strain and, most importantly, creates a risk factor for macular degeneration.

Scientists warn that altering sleep hours in the early stages of childhood “can have an impact on the brain" during this essential period for its development. That is why at Reticare we don’t recommend the use of these technologies for children younger than three years old.

While kids are especially vulnerable, light emitted by device screens can negatively affect every users’ health. Experts recommend using blue light filters and limiting the use of electronic devices in order to reduce the impact of harmful light.

Reticare eye protectors are the only scientifically proven solution that reduces the effects of digital device screens. Do not wait any longer and protect your and your family’s health with Reticare.
