6 Blue light glasses to save your eyes from strain

We’re on our devices a lot these days. From our smartphones when we wake up to our laptops at work to our smartphones on our commute home, screens are everywhere. With blue light leading to countless health issues, it’s time you were proactive.

6 Blue light glasses to save your eyes from strain
  • Does blue light actually cause problems? Yes. Prolonged exposure, especially at night, can lead to a disrupted circadian rhythm.
  • What types of devices emit blue light? Essentially, anything with a screen. Think smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop – all of these devices emit blue light.
  • Can blue light affect the quality of your life? It seems quite normal to stare at digital screens all day but, quite surprisingly, it is actually affecting our quality of life.

From your commute to work to simply passing the time, screens occupy the space in front of our faces more than we’d like to admit. In addition to the issues with posture (they do say sitting is the new smoking), there’s a whole other area where we may be doing ourselves a disservice.

With a functioning aperture range of f2.1 to f/8.3, our eyes are pretty incredible. They’re also fragile and very much a window to our soul. They take in blue light from the sun and our bodies naturally respond to know when to wake. This is your circadian rhythm. However, nowadays, we get exposure to blue light every time we use our smartphones, tablets, laptops, or even our smart refrigerators.

Unfortunately, blue light can mess with your body.

With exposure, our bodies respond to this additional blue light, leading to a pretty messed up circadian rhythm. Late nights in bed browsing your news feed only delays the production of melatonin which prevents you from falling asleep. In addition to lack of sleep, blue light can also damage our eyes over periods of time. Don’t worry – these blue light glasses are here to shield your eyes and keep your body running in tip-top shape.
