And if your day ends with a few hours of computer games before a final catch-up on the latest social media news, digital eye strain is guaranteed.
Blue light glasses are not prescription glasses and must not be confused with prescribed computer-distance glasses. Blue light lenses fit into any frame, and you can wear them over your contact lenses.
What is Blue Light and How Does it Affect Your Eyes
Blue light is a natural part of sunlight, so you are exposed to it every day. But this exposure is balanced and natural.
Unfortunately, the liquid crystal display (LCD) screens of smartphones, television screens and computers emit a significant amount of light in the form of artificial blue high-energy (HEV) light. It affects your eyes by causing eye strain, dry and irritated eyes, blurry vision, and eye fatigue.
Blue Light from Screens Increases Risk of Other Diseases
Blue light from screens negatively impacts sleep cycles and sleep quality. Sleep is vital to good health and protects your mental and physical health. It also promotes safety and quality of life. A lack of quality sleep could make one prone to obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Blue Light Protection Glasses Prevents Eye Strain
People using digital devices such as tablets and laptops might not even know they are experiencing eye strain. Blue light glasses limit blue light exposure and lessen eye strain. Symptoms of digital eye strain include:
- Blurry or double vision
- Difficulty refocusing between near and far distances
- Dry eyes
- Light sensitivity.
