Ocushield for Kids

Our kids spend an amazing amount of time on digital devices.

Whether they’re playing games, browsing the internet, studying or watching their favourite movies, children and teenagers today are spending more time in front of screens than any generation before them.

It’s an unavoidable fact of modern life – kids rely on technology to live, work and play.

And while we’re big advocates for technology, we also understand that this comes with some less-than-desirable side effects. In particular, the exposure of kids to unhealthy levels of blue light which is emitted from digital devices, affecting sleep patterns, eye health and general mood.

Simple measures like restricting screen times are a good first step towards reducing these effects but, given the increasingly important role of technology in our lives, this can only take us so far.

What’s blue light?

Blue light is a range on the visible light spectrum which is known for its short wavelength and strength. It’s naturally present in sunlight, sending signals to our brain that we should be awake and enjoying the day.

However, it’s also prevalent in the digital devices we spend so much time looking at and can send our brain a whole lot of mixed messages. This overstimulates our eyes and inhibits our brain’s production of melatonin, the chemical which helps us sleep soundly.

The result is a wonky body clock, tired eyes, and a lot more trouble getting to sleep!

Protection for developing eyes

While blue light can have a significant impact on adult eyes, children are even more susceptible to effects of blue light from digital devices.

This is because maturing eyes haven’t yet developed the pigments which protect them from blue light, which penetrates straight to the retina.

As a parent, you’ll already be familiar with the impact of a sleepless night on your child’s mood and ability to focus – vital contributors to their daily development whether socialising in the playground or learning in the classroom.

That’s why we’ve developed a range of MHRA medically-rated products which effectively block the most dangerous spectrums of blue light from digital devices, without discolouring or dulling the screens.

With all of that blue light being absorbed before it can reach your child’s eyes, they’ll experience less discomfort while using digital devices, and have a more restful night’s sleep at the end of each action-packed day.
