5 Key Factors to Prevent Damages from Screen Lights

5 Key Factors to Prevent Damages from Screen Lights

Light from device screens is a toxic element that affects your life, in almost every way.

Although there are many people who already use Reticare to protect themselves, you should be aware of additional recommendations 
in order to prevent damages to your eyes from the use of intensive technology and screens.

These are the 5 most important ones:

1.- The BEST method for protection is to use scientifically proven Reticare in order to adequately and scientifically reduce the high energy light emitted by your screens. Keep in mind that the most dangerous factor is this type of light that can cause the death of retinal cells.


2.-Distance to the light source: The closer to the screen, the worse. This is based on a physical formula that says: "The intensity of light is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the light source and the illuminated object." Just think about one thing: When you move closer to a music speaker, the sound is much louder than when you move farther away. Light works in a similar way, even if you don't notice it. That's why children, having shorter arms, receive 3 times more blue light than adults because their arms are less than half the length of an adult's arms. Get as far away from your screen as possible.


3.- Intensity is also very important: Reducing brightness to a comfortable and effective threshold is essential. Lowering the brightness is convenient but by no means sufficient.  For example, if we do not use Reticare, it’s like we are reducing the size of a knife, but not its harmful effect. By using Reticare and by managing the brightness, we reduce the intensity of the light as well as its toxicity.


4.-Screen time: Reducing or adjusting screen time is crucial, especially in long sessions, since the eyes must get some rest. It is common that we lose track of time when we are in front of screens, perhaps analyzing an important document, reading an online novel or studying.  It is necessary that we should take a short break in between, at least every 20 or 30 minutes.  These breaks should not be confused or change with what screen we are using. For example, whether it’s a laptop, tablet, monitor or a smartphone, we should do the same when using all devices.

5.- Screen size: Generally we think the bigger the screen, the better it is. However, this thought has changed quite a bit as the power of new bigger monitors and television screens produce much more intense light that reach our eyes, which could be disproportionately excessive. The old proverb from our elders: “Don't get close to the screen or you'll go blind,” has somewhat changed. Now, it is the screen that gets relatively close to us. The size of the screen is an equation that is related with the distance to the source, i.e. it is not advisable to use very large screen sizes in small rooms. In a small room, the amount of energy that will reach our eyes from a big screen will be much greater since the proximity of light will be much closer than if we are at an adequate distance.
