Does Blue Light Glasses Work?

That's one question we have been getting quite often the past year. Does blue light glasses work? The short answer is YES they absolutely work.

 

Why do we need to filter blue light?

We're constantly exposing ourselves to harmful unnatural blue light emitted by the digital screens that we use every day.  If you sit in front of a computer at work, watch TV, spend time on your smartphones, tablets and/or play video games, you're, being exposed to blue light rays constantly. Too much exposure to blue light from our devices causes digital eye strain.

The symptoms of digital eyestrain

Tired eyes, Headaches, stiff neck and sleepless nights are all symptoms of digital eyestrain.

 Spending countless hours in front of device screens, tablets video games, TVs and computers put our eyes through a lot of wear and tear. At the same time, Blue light from these devices causes our eyes to not only work harder but puts them at risk of aging faster.

Blue light from LED devices like your TV, smartphone or laptop holds back the body’s production of sleep-inducing melatonin which will make it difficult to get adequate sleep.

We experience blue light everywhere

In a 2018 survey by contact lens maker Acuvue, they found out that office workers spend about 6.5 hours a day sitting in from of a computer.

Another survey by a Pew Research Center found that 28% of American adults admit they go online constantly, up from 21% in 2015. Young adults are online the most. Their survey results found that around half of the respondents 18-29 years old reported that they are online constantly.

Susan Primo, OD, a professor of ophthalmology at Emory University and an optometrist says digital overuse causes eye problems and some patients who wear blue light glasses do report less eye strain.
