Why you should try blue light glasses? People spend more time than ever in front of a digital device, whether it is their smartphones, tablets, or a computer screen. Adults reportedly spend more than six hours a day and teenagers look at a screen for a minimum of seven hours a day. These are surprising statistics. In addition to musculoskeletal and physiological issues that can result from spending that much time scrolling through social media, reading news, or watching TV shows, screen time and blue light can impact your eye health. If you have a job that also entails close-up work or studying a screen all day then your eyes are certainly going to need some help. Visible light comes in a spectrum of wavelengths. Each wavelength comes with its own energy level, and blue light actually has the highest energy of any wavelength. Because of that, it has the potential to impact your eyes more than other types of visible light. All digital screens-computers, smartphones, televisions and tablets emit lots of blue light. Other common sources of blue light include the sun, fluorescent lighting and LED lighting. So, what damage are we doing to our vision? Some of the effects of this are: discomfort or strain in the eyes, headaches, blurry vision, double vision, dry eyes, eye fatigue and eye redness. Your cornea and eye lens are good at blocking out harmful UV light from reaching the retina. However, they can't block blue light. Damage to the retina can increase your risk of developing macular degeneration, which is a leading cause of blindness. So, it makes sense to use blue light blockers for reading. At Tiger Specs our blue light readers are constructed using special lenses designed to filter out blue light but let other types of light through. The idea is to protect your eyes from the high-energy blue wavelengths, reducing the potential for eye damage from prolonged exposure. These glasses are available in reading strengths from clear/no correction (+0.00) to +5.00. Each pair is guaranteed for six-months and is supplied with a matching case.
