There is a misconception about blue light being totally harmful to the eyes. The truth of the matter is, blue light is everywhere and sunlight is the main source. In fact, some degree of blue light exposure is essential for our overall well being. Blue light regulates our sleep/wake cycle aka circadian rhythm, helps with memory & cognitive function, and improves alertness and mood. It is overexposure to harmful blue light, specifically from our smartphones and LED monitors which we use often and up-close, that increases some eye-related health issues. These include age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and eye cancer.
