Have you ever considered how much time you spend in front of a screen? If you add up the time you spend on a computer for work or study, looking at your mobile phone or just watching TV it can add up to a significant part of your day. Studies have shown the average time we spend in front of screens is a massive 9 hours per day. But all that screen time can have a negative impact on your eyes and your eyesight.
The blue-violet and LED light emitted can be damaging to our eyesight in the long term. Over time we are seeing people needing glasses at a younger and younger age. There are also short term effects caused by the overexposure such as eye strain, dry eyes, disruption of sleep, headaches or migraines, mental and physical fatigue and watering eyes. But there is a way to help protect your eyes – blue light glasses can help prevent all these side effects of long hours in front of screens.
Blue light, computer, screen and blue control are the descriptions used for a pair of lenses or a coating which reflect the glare from digital screens. You don’t need a pair of prescription glasses to buy a pair of blue light glasses, you can just order a simple pair
Modern-day life goes hand in hand with digitalisation and being dependent on technology. However, the blue-violet and LED light emitted can be damaging to our eyesight in the long term. In fact, the average age for people needing glasses is reducing dramatically and the average time we spend in front of these LED lights is 9 hours per day. There are also short term effects caused by the overexposure such as eye strain, dry eyes, disruption of sleep, headaches or migraines, mental and physical fatigue and watering eyes. All these factors can be a nuisance in the office, but blue light glasses can reduce all these side effects.
Prescription or no prescription, you can add a blue light coating.
If you are ordering your prescription lenses you can add a blue light coating to any of your designer glasses. Whether you buy varifocal, single-vision in Nikon, Essilor or our own Fashion Eyewear packages blue light coatings are available. All our coatings block up to 40% of blue-violet LED light so you can feel a dramatic change while you are at work. The only lens which blue light is not available is our transitions colours. Adding coatings to your glasses are very important. As well as being essential to help improve your eye health they can also protect your lenses, we have anti-scratch, anti-static, hydrophobic and easy to clean. Remember you don’t need to have a prescription to wear blue light glasses, they are just as beneficial without prescription lenses.
