The Effects of Blue Light on Ocular Health.
Kitchel, Elaine
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v94 n6 p399-403 Jun 2000
This review of the literature examines the effects of blue light (or near UV - ultraviolet), especially that given off by black-light tubes, often used with children with visual impairments. It finds a long-term danger of retinal and lens damage and offers six practical suggestions which emphasize using proper filters and limiting exposure to black light. (Contains references.) (DB)
