OPTOMETRIST AND FOUNDER OF OCUSHIELD
Dhruvin studied extensively the role blue light has in the eyes physiology and circadian rhythms whilst studying to become an optometrist. This allowed him to build the research backed Ocushield products we have today. Alongside this he spent many years working in clinical practice, from hospital practice to community settings where he further developed his clinical skills.
Comment on blue light:
Having learned about the dangers of blue light very early on in 2013 meant, I have been following blue light research closely over the years. The research/knowledge base has increased dramatically compared to what was available in previous years. Now we have epidemiological studies, clinical trials and peer reviewed papers all on how blue light affects our health.
It is now conclusive that blue light emitted from sources such as screens and ambient lighting, can affect three main aspects of our health. Firstly our eyes, by causing eye strain and headaches in the short term but also contributing towards Macular Degeneration in the long-term. Secondly, our sleep by suppressing the hormone melatonin which makes it possible for our bodies to fall asleep. Without the secretion of this hormone, we stay awake essentially. Finally, skin which has come from newer findings. We now know 30 hours of exposure to blue light from smartphone or laptop screens can increase the inflammation level in skin cells by 40%. This means more fine lines and early ageing.
In a digital age, we can’t get away from technology. But, we can be mindful of how we and our families use technology and adjust our environments so our bodies are being protected from overexposure to harmful blue light.

Comment on blue light:
Blue light is a type of visible light with a shorter wavelength, making it emit higher energy. Blue light is not only given off by the sun but also by computer screens, smartphones, flat-screen televisions, and anything that has fluorescent and/or LED backlighting (which includes regular light bulbs btw!).
It is important to understand the effects of blue light because it is not only damaging to the eyes short term, but also long term. Short term blue light effects can make the eyes fatigued and dry. This can contribute to the symptoms of throbbing pain around the eyes - some even suffer from itchy/”burning” eyes. The long term blue light effects can decrease the pigment in the centre part of the vision known as the macula. This can increase the risk of development of macular degeneration - and even blindness.
The sun can actually radiate more blue light than screens. However, with the increasing amount of time in front of/staring directly at screens, we’re starting to see it affect a lot more eyes than the sun. Using blue light filter glasses or screen protectors can help to decrease the amount of blue light that enters the cornea, lens or retina.
Ocushield has a lot to offer for their customers from screen protectors - from electronic devices to blue light blocking glasses. The variety of their products has allowed me to protect many of my own devices to help protect my eyes. This is why I feel so comfortable suggesting these products to my patients. Plus, with their beautiful range - I know they won’t have a hard time finding a product they like, to help protect their eyes!

Comment on blue light:
Sleep has an impact on every single area of our lives, and is the most important behaviour we engage in on a daily basis. Technology usage is another behaviour we take part in on a daily basis, yet it can have deleterious effects upon our sleep. The blue light emitted from electronics tricks our brains into thinking it's daytime. This causes our bodies to decrease the production of melatonin, the sleep hormone, which is the hormone we need to feel sleepy. Ideally, you should turn off all electronics at least one hour before bed, and you should also charge your electronics outside of your bedroom. If you must use electronics before bed for work or school, I always recommend using blue lock blocking products such as those created by Dhruvin Patel of Ocushield. Once you have powered down your electronics, engage in a relaxing bedtime routine in a cool, dark, and quiet bedroom. Having a sleep promoting bedroom environment, a consistent and relaxing sleep routine, and an appropriate and consistent sleep schedule, will keep your circadian rhythm (your sleep/wake cycle) steady, which leads to better sleep. The benefits of healthy sleep are truly endless.

Comment on blue light:
I believe one of the “must have” products of the digital age is a blue light screen protector. Blue light is causing havoc to our sleep cycles, as it suppresses the release of an essential hormone called melatonin. The disturbance of sleep and the lack of quality sleep are not only linked to a host of mental health problems such as heightened anxiety and lower mood - but also decreased levels of motivation, productivity and concentration. As well as poor judgement and problem-solving. To me, it’s a no-brainer. You should add this screen protector to every device in your household, especially as technology becomes more and more interwoven in our lives and the lives of our children. What I really appreciate about the Ocushield blue light screen protector is that it does not change the appearance of my screen at all (unlike my phone’s “Night Mode” or other protectors). I have more energy/focus in my day and my eyes are noticeably less fatigued after hours of sitting in front of my laptop/mobile phone. I highly, highly recommend this product for professionals, parents, and their children.

Comment on blue light:
We have seen a shift over the past year to working from home and increasing popularity of Zoom meetings/teleconference solutions. The need for protection and alleviation of digital eye related illnesses is becoming a must for a lot of patients.
Ocushield offers a way to increase comfort in a stylish and effective way. By offering blue light blocking technology - the user can work on their computer, tablet, and smartphone with less vision or ocular fatigue. For the Zoomer generation, this is a must. I recommend Ocushield’s products to all of my patients who work in front of screens regularly.
The best way to prevent eye strain from digital devices is through preventing their negative effects. Ocushield delivers on this, by helping their clients stay healthy and avoid digital eye strain before it begins.

Comment on blue light:
Sleep is a crucial aspect of our physical and mental wellbeing. Not getting enough rest has been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, infection, inflammatory conditions, mood and mental health risks, car accidents, and issues with memory and cognition. Many people have trouble sleeping at night, often thought to be due to insomnia, when in actuality they have a circadian rhythm disorder known as delayed sleep-wake phase disorder, which can be due in large part to the negative impact of blue light.
Blue light, as emitted from our many devices and artificial lights, can be detrimental to our sleep through disruption of our circadian rhythm, or internal clock. Our internal sleep-wake schedule is in large part dictated by the naturally produced hormone melatonin. Our bodies are built so that in the evening when the sun goes down and it gets dark, melatonin is released from our pineal gland, keeping our circadian rhythm in sync and helping us to sleep at night and be awake and alert during the day. Studies have shown that blue light actually suppresses this naturally occurring melatonin release, diminishing one of the major driving forces propelling us to sleep. While in modern society it is hard to completely escape evening blue light, utilisation of blue light filters and low blue light products such as those offered by Ocushield can go a long way to reducing blue light’s deleterious effect on sleep.
