In this lecture, Professor Hammond addresses the debate on whether blue light is harmful, looking at the characteristics of blue-turqoise and blue-ultraviolet light and their effects on the eye and overall physical wellbeing. Hammond also discusses the potential harm of LED lights and whether increased screen time can cause myopia.

This lecture was filmed at the RSM in London for the event 'colour and light: an exploration of the benefits and risks of colour and light in ophthalmology' on the 12th October 2017.
