While computers, phones, and other screen devices provide tremendous benefits, high usage can have negative consequences, including the blue light emitted by these screens. Eyeglasses with blue light lenses might be a good way to combat this issue and they are available from an optician with us at World of Vision in Vero Beach, FL.
What Is Blue Light?
Blue light is among the wavelengths in the visible spectrum, so we are exposed to it daily through sunlight. Blue light might also come from electronic devices and long exposure to them might cause a number of vision problems.
Evidence shows that use of electronic devices might disrupt sleep patterns since your body and mind interpret light from electronic devices as daylight. We would eliminate our exposure to screens for several hours before going to bed if we could but doing so does not fit the lifestyle many lead.
Using Blue Light Lens Eyeglasses and Contacts
Rather than eliminating screen time, blue light lenses can be a method for addressing the issue. Blue light lenses have filters to block that portion of the spectrum, so if you cannot eliminate evening screen time, blue light lenses may help reduce some sleep problems. Available on a prescription and non-prescription basis, blue light lenses can be combined with almost every brand of eyeglasses. Their broad availability means blue light lenses are easy to obtain while allowing you to continue your lifestyle and, perhaps, sleep a little better at night,
