We all know that our eyes need protection from the outdoor sunshine. The same high energy light exposure that causes sunburns also causes damage to our eyes including cataracts and macular degeneration. Today, the damaging outdoor sunshine has been brought indoors. Daily, we are exposed to High Energy Visible Light (HEVL), commonly referred to “blue light” from our digital devices, computer and television monitors, and LED lights. This HEVL exposure leads to eye fatigue, dry eyes, light sensitivity, sleep disorders, computer vision syndrome, and macular degeneration. Tumwater Eye Center stays current with the best options to protect your eyes from damaging HEVL. This is one of our special interest in caring for your eyes.
