Most of us Americans do not realize what it means to spend 11 hours, on the average, in front of screens…it means, we are being victims of a toxic element. It is necessary first to check their effects on lab animals, and to date, there are already dozens of studies confirming high intensity toxic light emitted from screens cause damage to the eyes.
How do device screens produce toxicity?
In this instance, the screens produce phototoxic effects, which means that light by its intensity, exposure time, composition and distance to the source, impacts the retina and, as a result of this interaction, cell death occurs.
Why is it so important to protect the retina?
The retina is composed almost entirely of neurons that belong to the central nervous system similar to a human spinal cord. The same principle applies: when a spinal cord is broken, we cannot replace or recover these cells. When the damage occurs in the retina, vision is lost which is irrecoverable and blindness will occur in time.
Is that toxicity cumulative?
The damage is cumulative and implies that if no action is taken, sooner or later serious eye damage will occur.
How much screen time does it take for damages to occur?
The lab experiments prove in animals, with only one hour per day, within a period of 28-day exposure, damages to the retina can be detected.
What is the best method to protect yourself?
Protecting the source with a physical barrier such as scientifically backed Reticare has proven to be the most efficient and safe way to protect yourself. In 2017 it was demonstrated that lab animals did not lose cells when they were in front of tablet screens that were protected, while they lost 23% of cells without protection:
Being well informed makes the difference.
