Best Blue Light Glasses to Protect Your Eyes
Blue light & Digital Screens
Whether you spend a lot of time using your phone or computer for work or free time, we all spend more and more time looking at a screen. All this time spent in front of the screens makes our eyes strained and tired.
The cause might be either the UV rays which can be produced by some of the older screen technology or simple blue light rays, which are part of most screens.
Many computers/phones nowadays come blue light blockers included as part of the software or a sort of anti reflective ar coating on the screen.
Symptoms of digital eye stress are commonly known as vision blur, eye strain, or feeling of dryness, slight eye pain.
Such effects caused by the prolonged use of digital screens can be reduced or avoided by the use of blue light blocking glasses, also known as computer glasses or blue blockers, anti blue light lenses.
Although many can say that there is no scientific proof of their effectiveness, eye doctors, ophthalmologists and users at a global level can confirm the effectiveness of blue light filters used on a daily basis.
In case you are wondering what the blue light is, allow me to explain it a little.
You see, the light that our eyes perceive, is formed of different type of light beams/radiation (some harmful some less harmful). The blue light spectrum, can affect our eyes once exposed for a prolonged time. As we use more electronics which use 3 of the main light spectrums to create color, our exposure is more significant than decades ago.
All screens use the RGB spectrum (Red, Green,Blue) to create the plethora of lights we so love on our devices, which include computer screen, phone screen, smart watch screen etc. All this will create a form of a more severe or light digital eye strain.
Blue light is not a visible light, thus you are not really aware of it’s constant presence. Some cases of long time use of screens with no eye protection, have been determined to be the cause of temporary vision loss or permanent reduction in eyesight.
We are living in times where measures such as blue light filter options for phones and computers are available from the software. But not all devices have the function available and honestly, it changes the real life color of the image we are looking at.
How to Protect your Eyes from Blue Light?
So, what can one do to reduce all the eye damage caused/possible to be caused by the constant and more prolonged exposure to screens?
Some might say to reduce the time you use electronics, which would not be a bad idea. But not all of us have the opportunity to do so as our work involves more and more the use of computers/tablets and smartphones.
Block Blue Lights on Prescription Glasses
Prescription lenses with anti reflective coating are a simple solution that also does not change the image quality on your electronics and goes beyond protection from the blue light emitted by screens.
