Why Blue Light lenses?
Blue Light lenses are a special type of lens that blocks harmful light (similar to UV) from entering our eyes. In large doses, like from the sun, this light can damage the nerves of the eye and cause cataracts. Exposure to this light from digital devices can cause eye irritation and vision fatigue, a condition called Digital Eye Strain.
Even with 20/20 vision, you or your children may be suffering from Digital Eye Strain caused by hours of staring at computer screens, smart phones or tablets. With the increase in Telecommuting and "tele-schooling" we are all increased risk. These are common symptoms of Digital Eye Strain:
- Reduced attention span
- Blurred vision
- Trouble focusing
- Eye strain
- Dry or irritated eyes
- Neck/shoulder pain
- Trouble falling asleep at night
- Poor behavior in kids
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it's always a good idea to get a comprehensive eye exam to check for other potential issues such as the need for prescription vision correction or eye alignment issues. But in the meantime, simply wearing Blue Light lenses when using digital devices can improve visual comfort and reduce symptoms of Digital Eye Strain.
Taking frequent breaks and reorganizing your work space can also make an impact. Read more at ThinkAboutYourEyes.com
