Blue light is a type of visible light. Sunlight is a natural blue light source as well as electronic devices like our smartphones, tablets, computers, and laptops. Your television screen also is a source of blue light. Blue light lenses can help block these wavelengths' negative effects on you and your eyes, such as eye strain and difficulty sleeping. Our eye doctor team at EyeWest Vision Clinic in Rogers, MN, and St Michael, MN, encourages you to take a look at the benefits of wearing blue light blocking lenses and schedule an appointment to learn more.
Reduced Digital Eye Strain
We all know that extended screen time can lead to eye strain, headaches, and blurry vision. Blue blocking lenses may help reduce these issues by limiting the amount of blue light that reaches your eyes.
Improved Sleep Patterns
Sleep is one of the most important components of a balanced and heathy lifestyle and blue light may interfere with a hormone that regulates sleep. Wearing blue blocking in the evening can help promote an easier transition to falling and staying asleep.
Enhanced Comfort during Extended Screen Time
Many folks might find that wearing blue blocking lenses feels more comfortable for their eyes, especially for those with extended screen time. Whether you use a device a few hours or for an entire day, these special lenses may help provide protection and comfort.
Blue-blocking lenses are designed with a glare-reducing technology that can help provide a clearer experience. This may reduce squinting and continual strain on the eyes.
