Blue light blocking lenses can make a huge difference in your comfort levels if you spend many hours every day in front of a computer screen or on your phone. Blue light lenses can prevent eye strain, dry eyes, blurry vision, dry eyes, and that general feeling of fatigue you can get when you spend too much time in front of a digital screen. At Incredible Eye Care, we have years of experience helping Torrance residents avoid the detrimental effects of computer vision.
Blue Light and Digital Eye Strain
The blue light from digital screens is a major factor in eye strain and fatigue. Our brains are hard-wired to go on alert when our eyes detect the first blue rays of the morning sun. Unfortunately, this response is also triggered by the small amount of blue light emitted from digital screens. When you sit in front of a computer all day, your brain is receiving a constant “get up” message. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent digital eye strain from occurring.
Blue Light Lenses
Your brain doesn't care how you block blue light. You can get effective relief from computer-related eye problems by putting a blue light filter over your computer display. However, the problem with this approach is that you will need blue light blocking screens on every device you use. It is a lot easier to wear your blue light protection than to put screens on every device you own.
The latest blue light lenses block about 30% of the blue light emitted by your computer screen. That's enough to stop eye strain, dry eyes, headaches, and other problems related to blue light, but not so much that you miss out on the full range of your screen's color palette. Dr. Ng at Incredible Eye Care can prescribe these new blue light lenses, and our staff can help you select frames that suit your style preferences.
