Benefits of Blue Light Readers

Adults and kids alike are spending more time on screens than ever before. And that time is beginning to take a toll on our eyes. The longer you spend staring at screens, the greater your risk of eye strain, or even long-term impairment.

So, how do you know if you’re experiencing eye strain from your digital device? You may experience blurry vision, dry eyes, or headaches.

Screens like computers, tablets, smartphones, or even flat-screen televisions emit blue light, one of several colors on the visible light spectrum. Using blue light readers can help block that light and reduce digital eye strain. Buying a pair is easy, doesn’t require a prescription, and can provide some amazing benefits.

Better Sleep

Many of us scroll through our phones or watch a show before bed. Blue light can actually interrupt your circadian rhythm, and delay your body’s natural release of melatonin. You can avoid this by simply turning off these devices one to two hours before bedtime. However, by using blue-light readers, you can still enjoy another YouTube video before bed without missing out on a good night’s sleep.

Avoid Discomfort

After spending time staring at a screen, you’re bound to notice the negative effects. Blue light creates a glare that can strain your eyes. That visual noise reduces contrast and makes it harder to focus. Blue-light readers can help eliminate contrast and discomfort by filtering out the wavelengths that can cause stress and strain.

Reduce Damage

Using blue-light devices regularly, without protecting your eyes, can cause long-term damage. One of the greatest effects is damage to your retinas. Blue light waves can even cause age-related macular degeneration, or AMD. Regular use of blue-light readers can reduce your risk and keep your eyes healthy for years to come.

Choosing to use blue-light readers can benefit both you and your family members. One simple step can improve your sleep and decrease your chances of short and long-term risks.  Check out all of our blue light reader options at Sport Eyes
