What Is Dark Mode — & Do You Need To Use It On Your Devices?
“With people spending
most of their waking hours on screens, constant exposure to blue light is taking a toll on eyes and health,” says Justin Barrett, CEO
Healthe, a company that creates eye safe technology. “The high-energy blue light emitted by our screens has been linked to several visual symptoms categorized by the eye care community as digital eye strain or computer vision syndrome, as well as disruption of circadian rhythm (our body clock). Sleep disruption is also a serious concern, especially among children and adolescents, who are more likely to be sensitive to its consequences like persistent fatigue, poor appetite, and sleep disorders. We should be cautious about the potential long-term effects and accumulated exposure to LED-lit displays.”
