Mitigating retinal damage and circadian rhythm modification by blue-blocking spectacles lenses: evaluation parameters


Abstract

Summary:

This paper proposes two numerical indexes, the Non-Linear Circadian Index and the Retinal Index, to quantify the effects of exposure to short-wavelength visible radiation on human health, and uses these indexes to perform a comparative analysis between commercially available lenses with blue-blocking treatment and non-treated lenses.
