For last week’s poll, we asked you whether or not you use a blue light filter on your smartphone or PC. It’s time to discover your answers.
Every day, we are led to look, more or less long, screens. Smartphone, desktop PC, smartwatch or TV screen. Therefore, eye fatigue takes an important place in the sector of new technologies. Some say to themselves that solutions must be found to preserve their retinas. Be careful though, a study in the Cochrane review calls into question the effectiveness and relevance of glasses with a blue light filter.
On the one hand, these glasses would generate a predominance of other colors such as yellow. On the other hand, the demonstrations of the effectiveness of the anti-blue light filter integrated into the glasses would have been carried out by means of methods that were not sufficiently reliable. Finally, glasses with a blue light filter would have no impact on eye fatigue.
At this point, it is worth remembering that the blue light filter of the glasses should not be confused with the filter applied to the screens themselves. On the other hand, the theme remains the same and this news therefore inspired us to ask the question of last week’s survey.
Do you have a blue light filter on your screen?
You were a few hundred people to answer this survey. The question was very simple: do you use a blue light filter on your smartphone or PC. The option is now democratized on all devices with a screen, but we are entitled to wonder if this really protects our eyes.
A large majority of you (66%) use a software filter on their device. A good third (31%) of respondents do not use any filter or feature to reduce this type of program, while only 2% prevent it by turning off the screens in the evening. We therefore note that the option is massively used by users of computers or smartphones.
