Screen Time and Eyeglasses: The Ultimate GuideScreen Time and Eyeglasses: The Ultimate Guide

As lockdowns and COVID-19 restrictions become the new normal, people around the world are increasingly spending more and more hours glued to their digital screens. And this isn't exactly healthy for our eyes. Too much screen time results in dry eyes, eye fatigue, blurred vision, and anything from minor migraines to severe headaches.

One effective way to protect your vision when using your computer, phone, or any other digital screen is to invest in a pair of digital protection eyeglasses. These eyeglasses come with specialized lenses that help reduce reflection from the fluorescent light, filter blue light, and improve contrast.

But there are thousands of digital protection glasses available in the market, so how do you choose the right one? Here's what you should consider when buying digital protection glasses.

  1. The Color the Lens Reflect

Your computer, phone, and TV emit blue light — a major cause of myopia and macular degeneration. However, it's worth noting that not all digital protection glasses out there offer protection against blue light. So before you invest in a pair of digital protection glasses, make sure they have blue-light-blocking abilities.

  1. The Percentage of Blue Light the Lens Can Filter

Just because the lens can filter blue light doesn't mean the eyeglasses are perfect for you. You need to find out the exact percentage of blue light that the eyeglasses can filter. Any blue-light-blocking glasses that can filter at least 20% of the blue light spectrum can be a perfect choice for you. However, if your eyes are sensitive to light, be sure to go for glasses that block up 50% or more of blue light.

  1. The Brand

Another factor to consider is the manufacturer of the eyeglasses. If you want digital-friendly glasses that will offer the best protection for many years to come, buy eyeglasses from a renowned, reputable manufacturer or designer. Do not be lured by cheap glasses. Cheap is expensive!

  1.  The Frequency of Blue Light Being Targeted

Electronic devices, including phones, tablets, LCD TVs, and computers, emit a spectrum of blue light ranging from 400 to 500 nanometers. Therefore, we recommend choosing digital protection glasses that can handle this amount of spectrum.

There you have it; a guide on how to pick the right digital glasses. Be sure to keep it in mind the next time you're shopping for eyeglasses.
