Light from digital device screens and your child’s sight

Sunlight is made up of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet light. When combined, it becomes the white light we see. Each of these has a different energy and wavelength.

Disturbing a child’s circadian rhythm can lead to more than just bad sleep
