Our eyes, minds and bodies are sensitive to light. Different wavelengths have different effects, just like the times of day they correspond to. So for all the hours we spend staring at our phones, it’s no surprise that it can make a real impact on our health.
Blue light in particular is a potent wavelength, present in sunlight, so that it triggers our brains to face the day. At night, that’s a problem, and our iPhones, laptops, tablets and other devices project plenty of blue light, associated with headaches, eye irritation and fatigue. Ocushield is the work of optometrists who designed a phone screen protector that effectively blocks up to 90% of potentially harmful blue light. Using super-strong tempered medical grade glass and a scratch-resistant oleophobic coating, it’s also a screen protector, better than ‘night mode’ settings because it doesn’t discolor your screen a weird shade of orange.
