Benefits of Blue Light Glasses
Have you found yourself working from home on a daily basis due to the COVID-19 pandemic? Are you staring into a computer screen for hours on end? Blue light glasses have the capability of blocking harmful blue light that comes from our computer screens. Too much exposure to blue light can actually cause damage to our eyes and cause other issues like headaches and blurred vision. At Mountain Eye Care, we are not just in the business of providing our valued customers with high-end vision services and products, but we are also in the business of informing the public about proper vision health. That is why we have compiled some information about some of the benefits of blue light glasses. Continue reading to learn more!
Blue light glasses relieve eye discomfort
Excess device usage can lead to computer vision syndrome or digital eye strain. Glasses with blue light filtering technology can enhance your focus and reduce eye strain, resulting in making your eyes feel less tired and improving productivity. Another way to reduce eye strain is to make sure you take regular breaks from the screen.
Wearing blue light glasses can allow you to get better sleep
One of the more surprising impacts of exposure to screens is the potential to negatively affect sleep patterns. Blue light has a high energy frequency that can increase alertness and delay the body’s release of melatonin, which helps induce sleep. In general, we should all avoid using blue-light devices one to two hours before sleep. Blue-light blocking glasses can reduce the impact of blue light, enabling you to use your devices before bed and still get a good night’s sleep. However, the best option is to put the screen down before it’s time for bed.
Wearing blue light glasses can reduce the risk of Age-Related Macular Degeneration
AMD is a leading cause of blindness. Blue-light blocking lenses can help avoid or delay this condition by preventing blue light from impacting your eyes.
If you have found yourself working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and you are worried about protecting your eyes from your computer screen, then blue light glasses can surely help.
