In our technological age, it’s a fact of life that many of us will spend long chunks of time staring at computers, phones, or tablets. One study found that Americans spend around 7.4 hours a day staring at screens! Because of this, our exposure to blue light is higher than ever, and it is very important to protect ourselves from some of its harmful side effects. Our company, VS Eyewear, has just the right Blue Light protective eyewear to protect you.
What is blue light?
Blue light occurs in small amounts naturally in food and in our environment. It is also generated through LED screens. Blue light is known to increase alertness and overall mood; therefore in small doses, it is beneficial. However, blue light also has a shorter wavelength and emits more energy, which is harder on our eyes.
Overexposure to blue light is linked to numerous side effects, such as eye strain (which can lead to headaches), dry eyes, and macular degeneration, with the most common being sleep cycle disruption. This is due to blue light suppressing melatonin, a hormone our bodies create that helps control our natural sleep cycles. Our Blue-Bans reduce the harmful light, protecting your eyes from the higher energy wavelengths. This lessens the strain on your eyes, helping alleviate all known negative side effects to blue light.
Here at VS Eyewear, we have glasses for both men and women seeking to protect themselves from the harmful side effects of blue light. With us, you get to choose your frame color as well as the strength of the lenses. Contact us today to get more information on our Blue-Ban eyewear.
