Red-Light Therapy for Myopia Control?

How does light affect not just our eyes but also the natural rhythms of our bodies? It’s a subject which seems to come up for discussion more and more, particularly as the effect of blue light on sleep patterns becomes better known.

Let’s face it, from TV and computer screens to mobile phones, it can be hard to avoid exposure to blue light.

So much so that a 2011 study found that 90% of Americans were exposed to blue light in the hour before bed. [1]

And the problem with that is that blue light disrupts our natural circadian rhythms, being more conducive to waking us up than helping us to settle down for the night.
