    Wave trying to help patients

    So after a year of working on my personal project, I feel comfortable sharing here.

    I was getting frustrated with friends making poor choices on their eyewear selections (both frames and lenses) without consulting me...in particular those who did not live close and assumed I couldn't help because of the distance.

    So, this led me to create a patient education blog. I know it's not perfect from an industry perspective, my primary goal with the project is to try and explain some basics of our industry (products, optics, &c.) in a language that the average layperson can understand.

    and just last week I started building a version of it for us professional folks to talk over some of the stuff we talk about here...things we don't always want the patients to see.

    A lot of good work. I looked at the Blue Light section. Be ready for some grief. A lot has changed from what you have posted. A lot has been debunked. I’m with you on several points, however, you may want to update that section.
    Keep up the good work!

    So in almost all of my research on that particular article, I'm not finding the debunks. Do you have any sources I can read? I want to make sure I'm doing both my digital and IRL patients the best thing possible.

    Yes we absolutely do. But I also know I have many readers who aren't members here. And I'm using a very different format than a message board.
