Other studies have found a weak correlation between macular

Yet a third group of studies has found no correlation at all between
macular degeneration and sunlight.

It hypothesized that
people who have plenty of melanin and don't tend to
burn easily are at less risk for macular degeneration than
people who burn easily or are bothered by sun glare.
This study also concluded that people with blue irises are
at increased risk for ARMD [age-related macular degeneration].
These results, which have not been replicated or
confirmed, do not allow me to state absolutely that blue light contributes
to the development of macular degeneration, but it is certainly plausible.
Based on the possible benefit, I recommend wearing blue blockers,
especially if you have fair skin [some connection between macular
degeneration and hypovolemia?] and blue or light-colored eyes, if
you have any other risk factors, or if you spend lots of time in bright
sunlight, or on water, sand, or snow, which reflects sunlight.
Alternatively, wear a sun visor when you are outside.”
Light and Detoxification:
“In many primate studies, blue light has been
shown to cause a photochemical reaction that produces free radicals in the
RPE and the rods and cones. Researchers believe that these free
radicals [theoretical] interact with the high oxygen and lipid content
in human rod and cone tips to produce abnormal chunks of metabolized
waste that cannot be properly processed by the RPE, clogging up the
macula's maintenance system and producing dry macular degeneration.”
glasses vs. Black Sunglasses
*“Blue blockers [glasses that
reflect blue light] do not act like regular sunglasses. They appear tinted,
but they do not reduce overall light or make the world look darker.”
*“The warmth of the
sun and the therapeutic properties of its rays also have a
profound and beneficial effect on the health of the eyes and on the ability
to relax them (Page 49)."

“Fear and avoidance of light is a
general cause/aggravator of vision problems.
Natural sunlight is of benefit to the eyes. Excessive indoor work,
particularly under fluorescent lights deprives the eye of a full
range of frequencies [too much blue light?] and we find in people with
sight problems an unnatural sensitivity to light.
Bates claimed that adverse lighting
conditions are of benefit to the eyes. The trouble comes not from the
adverse conditions themselves, but the strain that such conditions
induce in a person who does not possess central
fixation [people with accommodative insufficiency].
Exposing the eyes to a variety of
conditions is a necessity for optimal function. Even occasionally reading
in dim light can be of benefit, training and extending the mental act of
borderline perception. Keep in mind that you need to strike a balance
between exercise and rest.”
