Dark green vegetables can protect your baby’s vision
Many people know that UV rays can damage the eyes.
In fact, because ultraviolet and infrared rays are usually absorbed by the cornea and the lens, they generally do not touch the retina, so they are not the number one killer of the baby’s eyes.
In visible light, there is a high-energy visible light-blue light, which penetrates the angle film and lens and contacts the retina, causing inestimable damage to the baby’s eyes.
Among them, the camera’s flash, the light emitted by Yuba and the sun will have blue light.
Experts point out that blue light can accelerate cell oxidation in the macular region of the retina, and excessive irradiation can even damage visual cells.
If the macular area is exposed to blue light for a long time, it will increase the risk of macular deformation in the eyes when old, and may even cause permanent damage to vision.
As a parent, it is especially important to note that the lens of the human eye will turn yellow as it ages, and the yellowing process helps to filter blue light.
However, because the lens of infants is very clear, blue light cannot be effectively filtered like an adult.
In addition, the amount of blue light entering the eyeballs varies in different age groups.
Time, 0 to 2 years old, about 70% to 80%; 2 to 10 years old, about 60% to 70%; 60 to 90 years old, about 20%.
It can be seen that the biggest harm of blue light often occurs in the early stages of human life. Therefore, parents of infants and young children need to beware of the damage that blue light may cause to infants’ eye health.
