24 Jun What Are The Benefits Of Blue Filter Glasses For Your Eyes?
What Is Blue Light?
Blue light belongs to the category of lights with a greater energy wavelength. This form of light is not only produced by the sun but is also produced by digital displays like mobile phones, computers, and tablets. As a result, the majority of individuals use blue filter glasses to protect their eyes.
How Does It Work?
Blue filter glasses have specially designed lenses that are meant to prevent or filter out blue light that is generated by digital screens. The hazardous blue-violet light rays are reflected by these protection glasses, preventing them from reaching the eyes.
What Effect Does Blue Light Have on Us?
Blue light induces:
- Eye diseases such as macular degeneration
- Discomfort in the eyes
- Eyes dryness
- Disruption in sleep pattern
Benefits Of Blue Filter Glasses
Improve sleep quality
Blue light inhibits the release of melatonin, a hormone that aids sleep. That is why blue-light gadgets should be avoided from 1 to 2 hours before bedtime. Blue-light filtering glasses can lessen the negative effects of blue light, allowing you to use your gadgets before bedtime while still getting a decent night’s sleep.
Alleviate eye strain
Blue light can make it difficult to focus on a screen, creating strain on your eyes and muscular stress. Yet, blue filter glasses improve the visibility on your screen, making it easier for you to focus and minimize eye strain.
Blue filter glasses may aid in the reduction of migraine attacks and headaches.
Improve visual performance
Researchers discovered that wearing blue filter glasses allows you to spend more time in front of the screen without being distracted, and improves the quality of your visual performance.
Conserve macular health
UV rays are effectively blocked from reaching your retina by your cornea and lens. However, they are unable to block blue light. The latter can penetrate the retina and raise the risk of macular degeneration, a primary cause of blindness. Therefore, wearing blue filter glasses can help you avoid this.
By keeping in mind the impacts of blue light and its consequences on the eyes, PRIVO provides blue ray filter lenses with ARmor coating to improve your performance and protect your eyes.
