How many hours per day do you spend looking at a screen? Averages show that we check our phones up to 150 times per day and have 10 hours of screen time per day across multiple devices. 73% of us suffer from headaches, tired eyes and other types of fatigue from digital strain.
So how can blue light lenses help? They help to block out the harmful, artificial blue light from our devices. High energy visible light (HEV) can be damaging to our eyes with prolonged and extreme exposure.
PLEASE NOTE, THESE ARE NOT SUNGLASSES – THEY ARE FOR BLOCKING OUT BLUE LIGHT FROM DIGITAL DEVICES
The symptoms of digital eye strain:
Headaches and sore or tired eyes are symptoms of digital eyestrain. Spending the majority of our waking hours in front of device screens put our eyes (and body) through a lot of wear and tear. At the same time, HEV light from our computers, phones, and tablets causes our eyes to not only work harder, but puts them at risk of aging faster.
What is blue light:
Blue light is a harmful portion of light emitted by digital screens. According to the Paris Vision Institute, younger people exposed to an excess amount of blue light can start to experience age-related macular degeneration at an earlier stage.
