We’re All Worried About Blue Light

Eyesafe and UnitedHealthcare Vision’s Screen Time 2020 Report revealed that 94 percent of ECPs are “very” to “somewhat concerned” about the impact of screen time on patients’ eyes; and over 77 percent of employers are “somewhat” to “very concerned” about the impact on employees’ eyes and health. Additionally, the average time people use digital devices has grown as more employees work remotely and distance learning becomes more common. eyesafe.com
