Between computers, tablets and smartphones, we’re looking at screens more than ever before. This exposes us to a lot of blue light that can cause digital eye strain, resulting in reduced vision/blurriness, eye fatigue, drowsiness and headaches.
None of us are likely to give up our screens any time soon, but there is hope. While most Americans (73.5%) don’t know that eyewear can be used to reduce blue light exposure and combat digital eye strain, it’s true. Similar to how sunglasses filter out UV rays, digital lenses can shut out a portion of blue light. And they aren’t just for those with prescription glasses—anyone looking for an extra layer of protection can purchase frames with these lenses (with an added fashion accessory to boot).
EyeBuyDirect, one of the nation’s leading online eyewear retailers, offers EBD Blue and Eyezen™ lenses that are the perfect fit for people who view digital screens for lengthy amounts of time for work or play. EBD Blue glasses include thin and light 1.57 index lenses that shield your eyes against harmful blue-violet light and help protect eyes from premature aging. Eyezen™ lenses are enhanced single vision lenses that provide sharper vision than ordinary single vision lenses and are available to everyone—whether you have a prescription or not.
