Vision Eye Institute’s Dr Lei Liu recently appeared in the latest edition of Medibank’s be. magazine.
The magazine features a number of expert articles, personal stories, interviews, lifestyle pieces, workouts and recipes. This particular issue focused on the rhythms that fill our lives, with Dr Liu discussing the effect that blue light has on our vision and internal body rhythms.
Below is an excerpt from the article:
“Most of your exposure to visible light, including blue light, comes from the sun. However, blue light is also emitted from a number of man-made sources including fluorescent and LED lights and electronic screens (e.g. computers, tablets, smartphones and televisions).
Your exposure to blue light from these devices is relatively minimal compared to being outside in the sun. But the growing concern among healthcare professionals is that these devices increase your total exposure – at all hours and while you’re indoors.”
Dr Lei Liu is a highly skilled surgeon with special interests in glaucoma, cataracts and general ophthalmology. She has over a decade of local and international experience and also speaks fluent Mandarin. Dr Liu practises at Vision Eye Institute Boronia.
