Aging Eyes Accelerated

Posted by
It is well known that skin ages with the UV rays from the Sun however, our skin has the ability to regenerate over time. What most of us are unaware is that the retina cells do not have the ability to regenerate therefore, maintenance of our eyes is a priority to be able to keep them healthy as long as we can in our lifetime.
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.
If you have kids, they probably spend more than an hour a day exposed to the harmful light emitted by electronic device screens. Have you noticed them with discomfort in their eyes? Beyond the visible symptoms, the increasing use of digital screens in schools poses great risks to the students’ eye health.
We all know the importance of prevention from the risks of harmful light emitted from device screens, but only a handful of people have taken action. The problem is not to understand the situation, it’s what you do about it.
