You may have heard that what you don’t know cannot hurt you, but that is most certainly not always the case. In fact, not only can what you don’t know hurt you, but what you can’t see can hurt you as  well. That is the case when it comes to UV exposure and blue light. Our Las Vegas eye doctors, Shannon Chandler, O.D., Lesa Davis, O.D., and Dorothea Muniz, O.D., make protecting you from the effects of both UV exposure and blue light exposure their priority.
We are pleased to offer eyeglasses and sunglasses that will filter out or block the harmful light that we’re referring to. UV or ultraviolet light comes in two types, UVA and UVB. As you might imagine, there is no benefit to anything that does not address both. Our Las Vegas eye doctors can assure you that when you purchase glasses that are designed for that purpose, you are protected 100% from UVA and UVB rays. Prolonged exposure to these rays can cause an effect that is similar to a severe sunburn on the cornea of the eye, which is know as snow blindness. 

Blue light is another part of the sunlight spectrum that is not good for your eyes. Even though it occurs naturally, there are now forms of blue light that you will find in LED and fluorescent lights, as well as in televisions, computers and cell phones. We live in an increasingly technological world, so even when you are inside your home, at night, your eyes may still be under threat of injury from blue light. The good news is that you can always count on our Las Vegas eye doctors for expert guidance and eye care products that you may need to maintain an optimal state of ocular wellness and to protect your eyes.

Don’t let unseen light create a hazard for your eyes. All you need to do is reach out to our office and we will set up a convenient appointment for you to see our Las Vegas eye doctors.
