Computers, smartphones, e-readers, tablets… all of these digital devices add convenience and ease to our daily lives. However, they also pose risks to your health – in particular, to your eye health. Blue light is emitted by almost all electronic LED devices, is a potential hazard to your vision. Overexposure to these artificial sources of blue light can lead to digital eyestrain and computer vision. And nowadays, it is estimated that most people spend about 12 hours per day in front of a screen, so overexposure to blue light s common!

How can blue light bother vision?

Blue light is a high energy light with a short wavelength. These type of rays scatter more easily, making it harder for your eyes to focus. When you gaze at a digital screen, blue light reduces the contrast and can flicker subtly, contributing to eye fatigue. After a few hours sitting in front of a computer at a mid-range distance, you may experience dry eyes, irritation, blurry vision, headaches, and eye fatigue. These are all symptoms of digital eyestrain.

Specialized lenses technologies, such as Crizal Prevencia blue blocker lenses, can relieve many of these uncomfortable symptoms caused by blue light. We are proud to offer Crizal lenses in our Copperas Cove optical store.
