New Blue Light Glasses from Eyeconic

Posted Apr 8, 2021 | Tips, Tricks & Tech

As we continue to work and learn from home, the amount of time we spend in front of a screen is probably more time than we spend doing anything else—especially if you enjoy binge-watching your favorite shows or playing video games for longer than you might like to admit.

More screen time means more exposure to the blue light emitted from digital devices. As many Eyeconic employees have been working from home, we have recognized the importance of caring for our eyes now more than ever. We wanted to add another product to our site that would help us do just that, for those of us who don’t wear prescription glasses!

INTRODUCING: Non-prescription blue light glasses for men, women, and kids brought to you by Eyeconic. But first, a brief blue light FAQ.

What is blue light?

Our friends at VSP® explain it well:
“If you’re unfamiliar with blue light, it’s the range of light with the highest amount of energy in the visible light spectrum (the light we can see). Modern devices like smartphones, tablets, and computer monitors all emit blue light. While historically we’ve gotten our daily dose of blue light from the sun, our increased exposure to blue light from these modern devices has been linked to the onset of digital eye strain.1
 

Why does blue light exposure matter?

Your eyes weren’t built to process blue light well. So they work extra hard trying to bring this light into focus, which can cause eye strain. Think of it like running a marathon where someone keeps moving the finish line back.

Screen time is estimated to have increased from 8.4 hours a day in 2018 to 13.28 hours in 2020.2 Scientific research has linked blue light to the onset of digital eye strain in as little as two hours of exposure. Your eyes are putting in overtime daily which can contribute to digital eye strain and symptoms like tired eyes, blurred vision, headaches, and dry eyes.
 

How do blue light glasses help?

Blue light glasses on Eyeconic.com® come with a premium anti-reflective coating, TechShield® Blue, which helps reduce blue light exposure by absorbing and reflecting specific wavelengths of blue light associated with digital eye strain. Even without a prescription, all glasses from Eyeconic include the same high-quality lens material with 100% UV protection, scratch resistance, and anti-reflective coating.
