The Eye Care You Need Against Blue Light Exposure

All too often we take our good health for granted, especially when it comes to eye care. Our eye’s natural lens helps filter less abrasive light, but does not protect against blue light- a high-energy visible light that is similar to UV light.

Therefore, when working in front of a computer or scrolling on your phone for a long period of time, chances are you are experiencing a level of eye discomfort or a headache.

This is also known as Digital Eye Strain or Computer Vision Syndrome in which common symptoms include dry eyes, eye strain, headaches or migraines, blurry vision and inability to focus and sleep. Laptops and phone screens not only emit blue light, but also TV screens, tablets and LED lights. It is important to take care of our eyes from excessive blue light to prevent harmful damages in the retina.

As Grace Gavilanes, writer and editor for Vital Proteins, puts it, there are a few ways to protect your eyes against blue light such as changing the brightness on the screens or making the text size bigger. But she found that blue light protection glasses can help combat blue light on all devices without needing to make any changes. The advanced technology behind the lenses filters 50% of blue light and up to 95% at the strongest wavelengths without a yellow tint. The glasses give your eyes the protection and comfort you need and in a stylish way.
