What Are Blue Light Lenses and Why Should I Invest In Them?

Blue light lenses are tinted lenses with anti-glare protection. Optometrists often recommend them to limit your exposure to blue light, which can be emitted from sunshine, certain light bulbs, and your digital devices, including your computer, laptop, and smartphone.

Blue light lenses work to reduce the potential eye damage caused by blue light and improve symptoms of computer vision syndrome. If you do spend many hours in front of the screen, whether for work or school, then investing in blue light lenses may be a good option.


3 Benefits of Opting For Blue Light Lenses

Working on a computer or using your cellphone all day can cause many health problems, such as neck issues and carpal tunnel syndrome, to blurry vision and dry eyes.

That’s why so many optometrists recommend blue light lenses to help you block out the majority of harmful blue light that is emitted from such screens, as they will help reduce eye fatigue, unclear vision, dry eyes, and headaches.

Here are 3 great benefits of investing in blue light lenses:

1. They’ll Alleviate Any Eye Discomfort

Excess computer usage can lead to computer vision syndrome, digital eye strain, and dry eyes. Blue light lenses work to enhance your focus and reduce eye strain, making your eyes feel healthier and more alert. This can also help boost your productivity, since your eyes won’t be impacted as much by higher-than-average computer use.

Bonus Tip From Our Calgary Optometrist: In addition to wearing blue light lenses, make sure to blink frequently and take regular breaks away from your computer to alleviate any eye discomfort.

2. You’ll Enjoy Better Sleep Habits

It is recommended that you avoid using blue light devices before bedtime because the high energy frequency can lead to poor quality sleep. However, blue light lenses will protect you against this high energy, allowing you to use your digital devices before bed, while still enjoying a restful night’s sleep.

Bonus Tip From Our Calgary Optometrist: Besides wearing your blue light lenses when on your computer at night, try to dim the lights in your room to reduce glare. This will improve your quality of sleep.

3. They’ll Lower Your Risk of Developing Age Related Macular Degeneration

AMD is one of the leading causes of blindness in Canada and blue light glasses can help combat this condition by preventing blue light from wearing down your eyes and from damaging your retina. Blue light lenses also help improve early AMD symptoms, such as blurry vision.

Bonus Tip From Our Calgary Optometrist: In addition to wearing your blue light lenses, make sure to stay at least 1.5 feet away from your screen at all times to reduce the impact of blue light on your retina.
