Ever experience that eye fatigue, redness and headaches at the end of a long day at work staring at screens? Blue light, of HEV rays, may be the cause and there are ways you can protect your eyes, starting with your prescription glasses lenses.
HEV or blue light is a short wavelength, high every ray, that is actually responsible for making the sky look blue. While the sun emit far more blue light than our screens, doctors are concerned with the long term health effects of having the light enter our retinas for such long period and so close to our eyes.
This is because the eye is not very good at blocking blue light, so it passes right through our cornea and lenses and enters the retina, which causes damage to our light sensitive cells in the retina itself. This can lead to worse health issues such as macular degeneration.
Because blue light scatters more than other types of light, it isn’t as easily focused. When you're looking at computer screens and other digital devices that emit significant amounts of blue light, this unfocused visual "noise" reduces contrast and can contribute to digital eye strain.
So what can you to do prevent digital eye strain and all the other bad side effects fo blue light?
One way is the have blue blocking lenses in your prescription glasses. These lenses reflect blue light and prevent it from entering your retinas, therefore reducing the risk of long term effects drastically.
Since purchasing blue block lenses, I have personally seen a significant reduction in eye strain, dryness and headaches. This means that my long days in front of screens are more efficient, and more importantly, much more comfortable. With them I can ease my worries of my job affecting my health long term.
