Your Eyes Deserve a Break: The Power of Blue Light Blocking Glasses

Your Eyes Deserve a Break: The Power of Blue Light Blocking Glasses



In today's digital age, our lives are more intertwined with screens than you think. Whether working on a computer, scrolling through social media, or binge-watching your favorite show, you're likely exposing your eyes to a significant amount of blue light.


But have you ever stopped considering the impact of all that screen time on your eye health?

It's crucial to adopt healthy screen habits. Take regular breaks to rest your eyes, practice the 20-20-20 rule (looking at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes), and adjust screen brightness and contrast. 

Using blue light filters or glasses can also help alleviate the strain on our eyes. This is especially helpful for an office worker who stares at the screen for longer hours.

Blue light glasses, alternatively referred to as blue light blocking glasses or computer glasses, have gained popularity as a solution to mitigate the adverse effects of blue light emitted by digital screens. 


Understanding Blue Light

Blue lights are emitted by digital screens and artificial lighting. Excessive exposure to blue light, especially from screens, can lead to eye discomfort and disrupted sleep patterns. This is where blue light-blocking glasses come to the rescue.

These glasses can:

Reduce eye strain By filtering out a significant portion of blue light.

Improve sleep: By minimizing the disruption of your circadian rhythm.

Enhance visual comfort: Providing relief from glare and reducing the risk of digital eye strain.

Despite its usefulness, some people still avoid wearing glasses because some may have tried blue light glasses but have yet to experience the expected benefits. This could be due to various factors, such as low-quality glasses that need to effectively filter blue light or incorrect expectations about the level of protection the glasses provide. 

Style preferences can also play a role in someone's decision not to wear blue light glasses or any type of eyewear. While the primary function of blue light glasses is to provide blue light protection and reduce eye strain, the aesthetics and design of the glasses can influence one's choice.
