Blue Light Filtering Lenses

When you spend a lot of time looking at a computer screen or other screens, it can affect your eyes in a number of ways. So many of today's jobs require almost constant screen time that it's common to have side effects from it. Many people in this position suffer from symptoms like watery eyes, dry eyes, eye strain, eye irritation, eye fatigue, and more. When you have these symptoms, you likely have a condition called computer vision syndrome.

It's best to prevent this syndrome before it starts by wearing blue light filtering lenses. These lenses work to keep your eyes protected from the blue light that comes from screens. If you are in the Mesa or Scottsdale areas, contact Riviera Opticare to schedule an eye exam and get blue light filtering lenses.

Sleep and Wake Rhythms

There are natural rhythms that the body maintains to make it stay awake and fall asleep at different times. This natural rhythm can be changed by several things that can mess up the cycle. These rhythms are affected by your lifestyle, especially your diet, and it's affected by the blue light that comes from digital screens.

Blue light changes your rhythm and can make sleep more difficult. When you don't sleep well, it can affect every aspect of your life. It's especially bad for your overall health. When you use blue light filtering lenses, it screens out the blue light so that your natural cycles of being asleep and awake can return to normal.

Blue Light Filtering Lenses

Lenses that block blue light take in the full spectrum and light and filter out the blue light waves. Many of the glasses that block this light have orange lenses, but you can also get other types to filter out this light. It's important to use this type of eye protection if you spend a lot of time looking at screens. Wear these specialty glasses whenever you are viewing desktop, laptop, and handheld electronic devices and especially at the end of the day to protect your body's natural rhythms and prevent damage to your eyes.
