Summer’s coming to a close and it’s almost time to hit the books once again. Right now, most parents are probably having to navigate through a sea of emotions as students prepare to return to school. Consequently, this also means that most who are on their way back to hallowed halls of education will be spending a lot of time on a digital device later in the day to do their homework. That is, of course, if they’re able to break away from Pokémon GO (which Consumer Reports says is already dangerous enough) long enough to concentrate. Either way, they are going to be bathed in retina-damaging blue light throughout the coming school year.
Baylor College of Medicine has now joined the fight in helping combat computer vision syndrome. In a recent article on their site, Dr. Zaina Al-Mohtaseb warns that increased use of electronic devices can lead to several problems for students trying to get their homework completed. While all the typical medical approaches were presented, you know full well it won’t be enough. That’s why GUNNAR recommends going the extra mile and getting your offspring a pair to better protect them during those days when you know they won’t follow doctor recommendations . . . which is pretty much every day.
