Abstract

Harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) and blue-violet light manifest differently in the human eye. Cumulative exposure to blue-violet light has been linked with the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). This article highlights the potential hazards of exposure to UV and blue-violet light, and summarizes some of the commonly prescribed protective/preventative measures.
