Blue Light Blocking Lenses

We’re exposed to blue light every day – and most of it comes from digital screens. Unfortunately, this type of blue light can cause some very undesirable issues, including but not limited to trouble falling asleep, blurred vision, eye strain or computer vision syndrome, headaches, and more. Learn more about protection from blue light in this quick guide from the team at Eyes On Flagler.

Why You Need Protection and How to Get It

Most people spend hours every day looking at a device, so it’s not hard to understand how easy it can be to experience such side effects. Though taking breaks from your screens throughout the day is a really good idea, you can relax. We’re not going to tell you to throw your device out altogether.

In addition to regular breaks, there are some other things you can do to prevent issues associated with blue light exposure. Having glasses with blue light protection is one of them.

Glasses with blue light protection are those made with a special coating. That coating acts as a filter to prevent blue light from devices from entering your eyes. They are great for any time you are looking at your phone, TV, tablet, or laptop.

The great thing about blue light protection is that you can get it on both prescription and non-prescription glasses. If you already wear prescription glasses, you can ask your eye doctor to have the coating added. As it can be added to most lenses, it’s not typically an issue. In some cases, though, you might need to order a new pair for the coating.

If you don’t wear prescription glasses, there are plenty of options available online. You must check these out thoroughly before purchasing, though, as you don’t want to waste your money on ineffective glasses.

It’s typically wise to order a pair from an optometrist, instead. This can ensure that you get quality protection that will do your eyes some good.
