Recent research reveals the dangers of light-emitting diode (LED) can permanently damage the eye. The study, conducted by researchers from the Complutense University in Madrid, Spain, explains that exposure to LED light can damage the retina of the eye.
Reported Thehindu, Friday (05/17/2013), the report of ThinkSpain.com unravel, when retinal cells have been damaged by continuous exposure to LED light, the retina can not grow back. Study reported high levels of radiation in the 'blue ribbon' and LEDs are used globally in a variety of devices, including computers, mobile phones and TV screens.
Not only on the gadget, even LED light is also used for traffic lights. The experts called for technology these lights have a built-in filter system to cut the blue beam (blue glare) on the LED.
Celia Sanchez Ramoz, researchers at Complutense University said, retinas will never regenerate after damage. He added that the LED light is made of 'rainbow longitude waves' or rainbow wave, where the blue portion can be harmful to the retina of the eye.
"LED is a tremendous technology if there is adequate protection," said Ramos. Based on research, the average human eye open (not blinking) approximately 6 thousand hours per year.
Most of the 6 thousand hours per year are exposed to artificial light. Ramos said the best way to prevent damage is to turn a blind eye to reduce damage.
He also suggested, one must use the glasses to filter ultraviolet rays (UV) and a healthy diet. In addition, the consumption of foods with vitamin A should be maintained as spinach and peppers to protect the eyes you to stay healthy.
