These days, many of us have jobs that require us to stare at computer screens for hours at a time. That can put a real strain on your eyes.
Eye problems caused by computer use fall under the heading computer vision syndrome (CVS). It isn’t one specific problem. Instead, it includes a whole range of eye strain and pain. Research shows that between 50% and 90% of people who work at a computer screen have at least some symptoms.
Working adults aren't the only ones affected. Kids who stare at tablets or use computers during the day at school can have issues, too, especially if the lighting and their posture are less than ideal.
The most common symptoms associated with Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) or Digital Eye Strain are
- blurred vision
- dry eyes
- neck and shoulder pain
WHY COMPUTER EYEWEAR?
1.REDUCES DIGITAL EYE STRAIN.
Eye fatigue, dry eyes and headaches are symptoms of spending too much time in front of a digital screen. Gxglasses lens design has extra focusing power providing you sharper, clearer vision. This patented technology helps you focus more naturally creating less eye strain.
2.IMPROVES COMFORT AND FOCUS.
The overabundance of bright artificial light can create a strain on your eyes. But
Gxglasses custom lens tints and filters block harsh blue light and glare so your eyes can finally relax. Focus longer. Work more efficiently. Be comfortable doing it.
3.PROTECTS YOUR EYES.
Look around you. You probably work in an environment filled with fluorescent light, glare, and uncomfortable air currents.
Gxglasses patented lens technology reduces glare and prevents dry eyes.
How do anti blue light glasses work?
Blocking out blue light with blue light glasses
We are in the era of electronics. During the evening you are probably watching something on Netflix, YouTube, TV, catching up on work on a computer or a tablet or just surfing the web. It’s okay, so is every one else. These artificial lights from gadgets emit a blue glow, a light wavelength similar to the day time sky. This blue light enters your eyes and signals your brain to think it is still day time. Taking this signal, your brain then restricts the flow of melatonin through your body.
While many are aware of how blue light from electronics disrupts sleep, many do not know that about 25% of the blue light from fluorescent lighting and 35% from LED lights is also damaging to eye health, over time raising the risk of vision problems including macular degeneration. The degeneration is pretty subtle and minimum but why take any risks? Due to this fact eye strain is also eliminated.
Melatonin (also known as the sleep hormone) is naturally produced in your body, when your eyes sense darkness at night. In addition to helping you sleep better, it sets your sleep-wake cycle. Imagine just waking up naturally without having to use an annoying alarm clock and actually feeling fresh in the morning. These glasses are also known as Nighttime glasses and that’s the reason.
The same technology that blocks the blue light filters also some green and yellow light that create the annoying glares. Especially the glares from reflected surfaces (snow, water, sidewalks, windshields and store windows) and make for more comfortable experiences for both recreational activities, such as boating, fishing, golfing, and daily activities, including shopping, driving and working in the yard.
How Computer Glasses Work:
Computer glasses are special-purpose eyeglasses meant to optimize your eyesight when you're looking at digital screens. They're designed to: reduce glare (a major cause of eyestrain), increase contrast, and maximize what you see through the lenses—making it easier to look at a screen for longer periods of time. Here are the two main features you'll see in glasses like these:
Anti-reflective (AR) coating:
Anti-reflective coatings reduce glare bouncing off screens and from light sources. Specially-designed computer and gaming glasses from Dy Vision Eyewear offer these coatings and prescription glasses can get anti-reflective coatings as well.
Some computer glasses also have an unmistakable (usually yellow) tint designed to increase the contrast on the screen and filter out the uncomfortable/harsh light spectrums so your eye muscles relax. The tinted glasses are signatures of Dy Vision Eyewear glasses, but tints can be applied to other glasses as well.
If You Experience Eyestrain, They Are Probably Worth It:
That said, many people experience digital eye strain and simply ignore it. Dr. Bazan owner of Park Slope Eye in Brooklyn and a member of The Better Vision Institute on the Vision Council, says:
People are so accustomed to their eyes feeling tired at the end of the day, they just accept it. Just because it is normal, does not mean that it's ok. Your eye doctor will work with you and help to get those eyes feeling better!
