Light Therapy

What is Blue Light?

Technology has exposed us to more blue light due to smart phones, tablets, and LED lights. This exposes us to higher wavelength light. Our eyes use three types of cone receptors in our retinas. Some are sensitive to red, some sensitive to green, and others sensitive to blue. Since blue light has a shorter wavelength, intense amounts of this light may be harmful to our eyes.

The Concepts of Light Therapy

Light therapy is also known as phototherapy or heliotherapy. In this therapy, one is exposed to daylight or to specific wavelengths of light using polychromatic polarized light, lasers, light-emitting diodes, fluorescent lamps, dichroic lamps or very bright, full-spectrum light. The light is given for a decided amount of time and, in some cases, during a specific time of day.
