Computer Glasses, also known as Blue-light Blocking or Anti-Blue Light lenses are a scientific solution to a modern problem. They block out the HEV-light, reducing the strain on the eyes and brain. Scientific studies indicate a strong link between exposure to blue-light, with melatonin production and circadian rhythms. If you spend a large part of your day staring at a screen, and experience eye strain, headaches and trouble sleeping at night, then we recommend trying our Computer Glasses to see if they can help you!
Let’s face it, many of us often at use our mobiles, TV screens or laptops for hours before switching off the light and then trying to go to sleep. Whilst there are the lucky ones who can sleep anywhere and at any time, many of us struggle with insomnia, which has many other knock-on negative health effects.
Computer Glasses solve this problem by blocking the HEV light, and wearing them for 2-3 hours before switching off at night can really help those who suffer from insomnia.
When using our digital devices, their screens emit a whole spectrum of visible light, including High Energy Visible (HEV) light, which we see as the colour blue. This is the same highly energetic light emitted by the sun. Before digital screens, our eyes would only ever usually have to cope with this highly energetic light for during the day. However today, we are exposing our eyes & brains to HEV more and more, which can lead to migraines, double vision, blurry & dry eyes and insomnia.
The impact on our eyes, which only used to have to deal with this light for just a few hours each day previously, is that it they become strained, over-worked and exert physical symptoms, known as Digital Eye Strain.
With our Dawn-to-Dusk bundle package, you will receive a pair of our Everyday-lens glasses, with a triple-pack of clip-ons, designed for every stage of the day.
Starting with our Everyday lenses (available in a range of styles), you can wear these throughout the day, offering you an ample 30% day-time protection from HEV blue-light when going about your daily routine, without any colour distortion. This is perfect to block unwanted glare from screens, TVs and strong lighting.
As the evening comes, snap on our Heavy Duty Clip-ons, which add a further 70% HEV blue-light protection, taking your total protection up to 100%. This is essential for calming down your brain as you move from day-time to evening.
Up to 1 hour before bedtime, switch to our Bed-time Red Clip-ons, which filter red-light, thereby creating a soothing and warm dusk-like light, which calms your brain as it transitions into a natural sleep-cycle by mimicking the colours of the sunset.
Lastly, you can also turn your glasses into UV400 sunglasses when the sun comes out, by adding our Solar Clip-ons.
There are numerous ways you can reduce the strain on your eyes caused by HEV.
The best way to take care of your eyes is to get an optician to take a look at your eyes, explain your symptoms and see what they prescribe. It might be that you need to start wearing prescription lenses, or if you are already, maybe your prescription has changed.
You can often reduce the effect of screens on your eyes by simply adjusting the settings on your devices. Turn down the brightness, increase the font size & contrast or reduce the 'color temperature' settings. Check with your product manual or their customer services if you are unsure how to do this. Computer Glasses offer a slight amber hue which can improve the contrast from the text on your screens making it easier to read.
Blinking is one of those reflexes that we often do subconsciously. However if you are able to be more mindful of it, and force yourself to blink more often when using your laptop or mobile, you will coat your eyes with more tears and keep them lubricated. You could also use lubricating eye drops from your local pharmacy.
When you stare at screens for too long, you can get 'focusing fatigue'. This simply means that you are exhausting your eyes by staring at one thing for too long. Imagine staring at your feet for hours on end, you would soon get a headache from focussing on one thing for so long! This is the same with our screens except, we often stare for hours on one single object without realising.
Every 20 minutes or so, take a break, stare off into the horizon, or something far away and give your eyes a break. During your breaks, make sure to stand up and move about whilst stretching your arms, legs, back, neck and shoulders. This will also reduce muscle tension and fatigue.
Anti-blue blocking lenses cancel out the HEV blue-light spectrum which causes digital eye strain. Wearing computer glasses whilst using digital devices cancels out the effect of the light shielding your eyes and brain. Whilst anti-blue lenses are not the only solution to digital eye strain, they are an important component to maintaining healthy eyes and brain in this modern age. They are a modern solution to a modern problem.
