How does Screen damage our eyes?

These blue light rays are in proximity to our eyes and hence its effects create a severe impact on our eyes. These detrimental rays result in penetrating the retina and creating serious eye problems. You’ll experience eyestrain, headache, burning sensation, blurry vision, red eyes, eye twitching, watery eyes and many other complexities.

It also leads to the cause of serious eye diseases like age-related macular degeneration and cataract if not treated timely.
