With tablets, smartphones, LED lighting indoors and the sun outdoors, we are surrounded on all sides by light, including damaging UV and blue light sources. PROBLEM: UV Light is not only a major risk factor for many skin diseases, but is also a risk factor for eye diseases, including cataracts. Blue-Violet Light is harmful to retinal cells and is one of the risk factors for the onset of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is the number one cause of severe vision loss and legal blindness in adults over 60. SOLUTION: Join our group and find out solutions that exist and bring your ideas to the table about how we create top of mind awareness of the importance of eye health in a technology-driven world.
