Blue filtering glasses are the ultimate weapon you can use to protect your eyes in this digital era. Nothing can better guard your eyes than them if you find yourself glued to screens all day. The addiction, be it necessary or not, can result in dry eyes and strains by the end of the day. Along with a pair of blue filtering glasses, there are other methods as well to keep your eyes healthy. Doing them all together can promise your eyes an awesome future with ultimate health.
- The 20-20-20 rule
The rule is every eye doctor’s instant remedy for strains. It says for every 20 minutes of looking at a screen, you need to look at something at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds. What does this do? The human eye needs to blink often to stay away from dry eyes, but that doesn’t happen while being glued to the screens. Every 20 minutes, a break of 20 seconds will allow your eyes to blink while also helping them rest. That’s because when you look at something that’s far like the sky or a tree, the eye muscles don’t have to focus much and they get the time to relax.
- Eye drops
Dry eyes are caused after prolonged usage of digital devices. They can be a cause of irritation. Eye drops help relieve this irritation. If used regularly, they keep your eyes moisturised. Whether or not you use blue protection glasses, eye drops are still recommended. People who wear contact lenses use it quite often. Eye drops are also used in cataract surgery, for conjunctivitis, corneal transplant surgery and many other cases to heal your eyes.
- Regular eye tests
This one is a no brainer. You need to go for regular and comprehensive eye tests. This way you’ll be able to diagnose eye diseases much earlier which makes them easy to treat. Specscart offers free comprehensive eye tests if you visit their stores in Bury or Walkden. They also provide eye test services at home or workplace at a nominal rate so that you never have the excuse of not having the time or money for an eye check-up.
- Blue filtering glasses
Nothing is better than blue light coating or X-blue lenses that make the blue filtering glasses. They block all harmful blue light that causes eye strains, headaches, dry eyes, and blurred vision. Blue light also hampers your sleep cycle by blocking the production of the sleep hormone, melatonin. The lack of sleep thus caused, can lead to neurotoxin build-up, oxidative stress in the brain and eventually depression. Also, prolonged exposure to blue light increases the chances of having cataracts and macular degeneration that can lead to blindness. Thus, blue filtering glasses save you from herculean amounts of health issues.
- UV coating
The sun also brings with it a big chunk of harmful rays which we call the ultraviolet light. You know what we mean if you have experienced eye strains under the sun when not wearing sunglasses. The UVA rays and UVB rays of ultraviolet light can be pretty damaging. They can result in eye diseases like macular degeneration, cataracts, photokeratitis, pterygium and even skin cancer. Eventually, the harms may lead to complete vision loss as well.
Specscart brings to you blue light glasses with X-blue lenses that keep you protected against blue light. All glasses at Specscart also come with a layer of anti-UV coating free of charge to shield you against the sun. So, buckle up now, and choose your favourite frame. If you have an old frame already, opt for the reglaze service i.e., glasses lens replacement and we’ll put new X-blue lenses in your favourite old frames for you.
