Most of us use computers, tablets, and phones every day. Using monitors puts an increased strain on the eyes. As a result, the clarity of vision decreases, and discomfort appears. Ophthalmologists recommend the use of special glasses to protect the eyes when working on a PC. Let’s see how effective they are.
It is difficult for a person to imagine a life without a computer. Communication, work, and even leisure are directly related to this miracle of technology. At the same time, many of us do not think about the amount of pressure our eyes every day using a computer for more than 4 hours. For the first time a disease called “computer vision syndrome” was discussed at the beginning of the 21st century. The main signs of this disease include redness, fatigue, dryness, and pain in the eyes, as well as reduced vision, headache, and weakness at the end of the day. Currently, nearly every office employee experiences these symptoms.
The main errors when using a computer:
- The distance between the person and the monitor is less than 50-60 cm;
- Continuous work without breaks and gymnastics for the eyes for more than 45 minutes;
- Incorrect settings of brightness and contrast;
- Staying in one position for a long time;
- When the monitor position is above or below the eye level;
- Rare blinking;
- Working in dark places.
Are blue light-blocking computer glasses useful?
Why does working on the computer harm our eyes? Firstly, while working on a PC or laptop, we rarely change the focal length and blink. Because of this, the eyes muscles are overexerted, and the cornea dries out, which leads to the eyes’ fatigue and dryness. In addition, electromagnetic waves emanated by the computer, as well as from any other electrical device, have a negative impact on our eyes. Despite the technological effectiveness of modern monitors, they create a huge strain on our vision due to the excessive number of rays of the blue and violet spectrum.
People are being encouraged to buy blue light-blocking computer glasses, which have several advantages. According to manufacturers, such glasses neutralize electromagnetic radiation, eliminate glare from the surface of the display, and also cut off the rays of the excess violet and blue spectrum that put an additional strain on the human visual system. The “secret” lies in the presence of a special protective coating on the surface of the lenses.
Why do I need blue light blocking computer glasses:
1. They cut off the rays of the excess violet and blue spectrum;
2. They neutralize electromagnetic radiation;
3. They eliminate glare from the surface of the screen.
If possible, take a break and practice eyes gymnastics every 45 minutes;
Set comfortable brightness and contrast parameters of the screen;
Make sure that the display is clearly aligned with the eye level;
Make sure that the workplace is comfortable (a sufficient level of natural light, comfortable furniture, etc.);
Position the monitor at a distance of at least 50-60 cm from the eyes.
Use blue light blocking computer glasses.
We live surrounded by screens, spending almost nine hours a day, on average, in front of digital devices. All these devices emit blue light, and since our eyes aren’t protected against this overexposure, the light can seriously affect our eyes.
From improving your sleep to maximizing your focus, the benefits of blue light-blocking computer glasses will drastically improve your quality of life.
