Do you find yourself rubbing at your eyes, squinting, and taking pain meds to stave off a seemingly never-ending headache at work? You may be suffering from the negative effects of blue light overexposure.

Blue light in and of itself is not a bad thing. Blue light is everywhere in our environment, like the sun; blue wavelengths are beneficial in the day as they help boost mood, attention, and reaction times. When it is concerning is when it negatively affects the health of your eyes, especially after sundown when we are still using our phones and other electronic devices.

Just like in manufacturing and other workplaces, workers in the office and people at home also need eye protection. Having the right blue light safety glasses will benefit you and your eyes by:

Helping Prevent Digital Eye Strain & Computer Vision Syndrome

One of the best things about blue light safety glasses is that they can help alleviate eye discomfort while on the computer. Digital eye strain and computer vision syndrome (CVS) can cause unpleasant symptoms like:

  • Blurred vision

  • Headaches

  • Neck and back pain

  • Dry eyes

  • Eye redness

  • Eye irritation

These symptoms make it harder for you to work and blue light safety glasses will take the strain off. 

Remember to take frequent breaks from the computer and mobile devices every 20 minutes to relieve and prevent eye strain and computer vision syndrome. Follow the 20-20-20 rule: for every 20 minutes looking at a screen, look at something in the distance 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Also practice good computer hygiene by reducing glare, sitting at your desk correctly, cleaning your screens, and having enough light in your workspace.

Improving Sleep By Reducing Overexposure To Blue Light

Harvard Medical School explains that exposure to blue light suppresses the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that influences our circadian rhythms, more colloquially known as our “internal clock”. As a result, overexposure to blue light negatively affects our much-needed sleep.

Using blue light glasses during the day may help improve your sleep by keeping your melatonin production regular. If you find yourself unable to sleep at night, wear blue light glasses during the day while at the computer and limit phone use at bedtime. If you continue to have problems sleeping, as well as blurry vision and headaches, please contact your doctor.
