Blue light tends to scatter throughout the vitreous humor when entering the eye, causing so-called “visual noise”.
This could be perceived as discomfort glare and reduction in contrast perception. Additionally, blue light causes longitudinal aberrations that may lead to blurred images. This unfocused “visual noise” can contribute to visual discomfort and symptoms associated with digital eye strain.
Headaches, blurred vision, dry or burning eyes are all common symptoms of digital eye strain (DES).
