How to Protect Your Eyes from Blue Light and Digital Screens

Updated: Aug 10, 2020

In a digital world where our eyes are constantly straining from one screen to another, people find relief by adding a special defense to their prescription glasses.

A coating to your glasses protects the eyes from the dangers of blue light. Blue light is all around us, but it is more prominent in digital screens. For example, your computer screen, smartphone and tablet are all great sources of blue light. Eyestrains and heavy exposure to blue light have harmful consequences. Besides resting the eyes with regular breaks from your screen, blue light defense AR eyewear is the solution to this new phenomenon.

What is Blue Light?

Blue light is harmful to the eyes since it carries so much energy. The colors we see as violet and blue have the shortest wavelengths and most energy. Our eyes can only temporarily handle these wavelengths. As technology evolves every day, our eyes must adapt or suffer. So, optometrists have introduced methods that help our eyes view blue light and digital screens.

Better Eye Health with Blue Light Defense

One of the most successful methods is wearing glasses with blue light defense AR on the lenses. A blue light defense truly saves your vision. The lenses allow you to see your screen without the harsh side effects. Overexposure to blue light leads to eyestrains, headaches, fatigue and other symptoms. Your vision will rapidly decline in addition to these health disorders.

Since blue light is unavoidable, optometrists recommend adding blue light defense to your everyday glasses. Routine breaks are always helpful, but there is a dramatic improvement to your eye health with blue light defense.
