Even if you’ve got 20/20 vision, these specs are a smart move.
We’re currently in a situation where, unfortunately, avoiding screen time is proving to be quite tricky. Social isolation is forcing us to become more tech-dependent and not just to keep us entertained, but more importantly, to keep us connected and make us feel less alone.
However, too much time online, especially after dark, can make you feel a little unwell. Straining your eyes, interrupting the flow of melatonin and disrupting circadian rhythm, too many late-night scroll sessions can leave you bleary-eyed and severely sleep deprived, as noted by sleep psychologist Doctor Michael J. Breus.
That’s where blue light blocking technology comes in. Emitted by digital screens, like that on your phone, tablet and laptop, blue light exposure may cause dry, blurry eyes, eye strain, headaches and fatigue. Glasses, like those created by Quay Australia and other brands, appear clear but feature blue light treatment which may help block that harmful light and ease those tired eye symptoms.
Ideally, scheduling some much needed time away from screens is the best solution, but when you can’t put down your phone, at least consider putting on these glasses.
