Pointing out that many people spend most of their waking hours staring at screens is like pointing out that water is wet. Unfortunately, gazing at multiple backlit screens for an extended period can adversely affect your eyes.
According to Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends 2014 report, the average American (aged 16-44) spends 7.4 hours gawking at screens every day. That’s 147 minutes of watching television, 103 minutes working on a computer, 151 minutes tinkering with smartphones, and 43 minutes using tablets.
Protect your eyes from computer vision syndrome
The American Optometric Association suggests that anyone who spends more than five hours a day staring at a digital device and exposing themselves to blue light is likely to contract computer vision syndrome, or CVS. The condition produces symptoms that include eye strain, blurred vision, red eyes and migraines.
Good thing companies like GlassesUSA make protective lenses to shield against the harsh light emitted by computers and smartphones. Founded in 2008, GlassesUSA is run by optical experts committed to making sure that you and your eyes are well taken care of.
Digital Block Lenses keep blue light at bay
Blue light, also known as high-energy visible light, exists at the high end of the visible light spectrum. Its high frequency and short wavelengths make it similar to ultraviolet light. All that blue light emanating from our screens can strain our eyes. It also can cause sleep problems. And it might contribute to long-term vision problems such as cataracts and macular degeneration.
Since our peepers don’t block blue light, the next best thing is to wear glasses to protect them. To help combat computer vision syndrome, GlassesUSA developed Digital Block Lenses, which are precisely designed to reflect and filter the blue light emitted by artificial light sources.
When light hits these lenses, it expels a bluish glow on the exterior and a yellow one on the interior. Whether you’re a certified couch potato, a 9-to-5er, a hardcore gamer or a smartphone addict, these Digital Block Lenses can provide the utmost protection and comfort for your eyes.
Protect your eyes in style
Protecting your eyes from computer vision syndrome doesn’t mean hiding them behind thick, dorky glasses. GlassesUSA’s dedicated style council works hard at selecting the best frames and the most popular brands. The company takes pains to follow fashion trends and keep the latest styles in stock.
To order your chic, protective eyewear from GlassesUSA, just pick a frame from thousands of stylish options. Then enter your prescription, choose a lens package, and add Digital Block Lenses.
