This sponsored post is a part of the campaign “Protecting America’s Eyes” by Reticare in order to inform U.S. citizens about the importance of eye protection from device screens. The opinions expressed in this post are entirely my own. I think it is safe to say we all know how harmful the effects of Ultraviolet, or UV light is for our eyes. This is the light that comes from the sun. I remember my mom was always reminding me to wear my sunglasses when I was outside. Now it seems we have another worrisome form of light which is also harmful for our eyes.
Is It Eye Strain Or Something More Serious?
This high energy light comes from our smartphones, laptops and other electronic devices. 60% of us are using an electronic device for an average of 5 hours per day. Of that percentage, children are the largest users of these devices. And of that group, 70% are using two or more devices at a time. This light can cause digital eye strain, which symptoms include neck/shoulder/back pain, eye strain, headache, blurred vision, and dry eyes. This high energy light exposure can also lead to sleep disorders as well as computer vision syndrome. Even more serious, it can lead to a decrease in macular thickness, which can regress to macular degeneration, which can lead to blindness.
A Solution For High Energy Light Exposure
When my daughter began to have headaches, blurred vision and shoulder pain, we made an appointment with her eye doctor. After meeting with our ophthalmologist, we learned children’s protective lens are not fully developed until the age of 25. With my daughter barely 18, she has several years to go before hers develop. Our eye doctor suggested we limit Caitlin’s screen time. Because Caitlin uses her laptop for school, that is not always an option. A better solution for our daughter is the Reticare for laptop protector. With Reticare, we can stop damaging our eyes and start protecting them!
Products To Protect Your Eyes
The products from Reticare were created in response to the harmful high energy light from our electronic device screens. The products absorb and reduce high energy light, decreasing eye strain symptoms. In addition, the risk for irreversible retina damage is greatly reduced. The 3 risks the products from Reticare protect our eyes from are sleep disorders, Computer Vision Syndrome and retina damage. In addition to macular thickness and macular degeneration, retina damage can lead to Glaucoma, which my mom suffered from, and Cataracts. Sadly, once the retina cells die, they don’t recover.
