BLUE LIGHT AND
YOUR VISION

Blue light is all around us. It is emitted
by the sun and artificial light sources. Be
aware of over-exposure to this type of light
as it can be harmful to the eyes.

BENEFITS OF
TURQUOISE BLUE LIGHT

Blue light is made up of two parts - the turquoise part has many health benefits.

Blue-Turquoise light can be beneficial to our health. It regulates the circadian rhythm (our internal ‘body clock’), which controls our sleep-wake cycle. So it is essential to a restful night’s sleep. It can also boost brain activity, improving memory, mood, alertness and mental performance.


HARMFUL
VIOLET LIGHT

As with UV rays, overexposure to blue-violet light can be harmful to the eyes. 

It can damage the retina, and potentially increase the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts and photokeratitis (sunburned cornea) – which can lead to temporary blindness.
