FAQs about Phototherapy Eye Mask


The phototherapy eye mask is the first care barrier for newborns. Why are the baby's eyes covered? In adults, prolonged exposure to blue light can cause retinal damage. Although retinal damage from phototherapy has not been reported, eye covers for newborns are standard prophylaxis.


Why the Baby Eye Mask for Phototherapy Is Used?

Harms of blue light to newborns:

Blue light does not mean that light is blue, instead, a high-energy visible light with a wavelength of 400-500nm. It can penetrate the lens to reach the retina, causing optical damage, and accelerate the oxidation of cells in the macular region. And it may have side effects on neonatal perineum and ovary, which may lead to further maldevelopment and infertility, etc. As a result, blue light has been proven to be the most harmful visible light.

Infants and young children are most likely to be hurt by blue light. Because babies' lens is relatively clear, difficult to filter the blue light. For ages 0-2, about 70-80% of the blue light can penetrate the lens to reach the retina, and for ages 2-10, around 60-70% of the blue light could irradiate the retina.

Therefore, when newborns with jaundice are treated with phototherapy, phototherapy eye protector products are indispensable, in order to avoid phototherapy eye damage.

Blue-ray illumination is an important measure to treat neonatal jaundice and prevent nuclear jaundice, but it will stimulate and hurt the baby’s eyes also, which leads to permanent insomnia. The phototherapy eye protector can effectively block blue-ray and various other strongly visible light when using it can avoid blue-ray or other kinds of strongly visible light of the stimulating and hurting baby’s eyes. The phototherapy eye mask is generally made of high quality elastic, spunlaced compound non-woven fabric, physical compound fabric, and other flexible materials. It is able to adapt to the baby’s changing head shape and significantly protect newborns' eyes.
