Blue Light and Aging
Not only are eyestrain and vision problems common side effects of over-exposure to blue light, but studies now suggest that an accumulation over time can cause the skin around the eyes to age prematurely.
This is due to the anatomy of the skin around the eye. It is much thinner and less protected than the skin on the rest of the face, making it very fragile and more vulnerable thus aging the skin at a faster pace. As the collagen and elastin fibers start to deteriorate from the constant movements and stress, they start to slacken and the skin begins to sag. The first signs of stress and lack of sleep around the eyes are dark circles and wrinkles. Both these conditions are related to over exposure to blue light as they are caused by over-stimulation by staring at a screen especially late at night
