Fun fact: the biggest emitter of blue light is the sun. However, blue light is also produced by digital screens, overexposure to which can harm your eyes. This is because the blue light wavelengths can potentially age your eyes prematurely. This means that you are putting yourself at risk of digital eye strain any time you look at a phone, laptop or television.
But panic not, SmartBuyGlasses has a perfectly affordable solution. You can add the zFORT™ blue light filter to any pair of glasses. Or, purchase a pair of blue light blocking glasses to eliminate the threatening blue rays. These solutions are particularly effective for those that spend extended periods of time on the computer or using a mobile phone.
What is Blue Light?
The sun’s rays feature multiple colours, including red, orange, yellow, blue and green. Each ray is different, with varying levels of energy and unique wavelengths. The blue light rays have a much shorter wavelength than the rest, but their energy levels are much higher. This makes exposure to blue light very intense for the eye. As the blue light rays can easily penetrate the retina, the human eye is therefore at risk.
What are the Pros and Cons of Blue Light Rays?
Despite it being widely accepted that blue light is dangerous, there are actually some benefits. A little blue light exposure is necessary for improving our memory and mood. Blue light also helps the body regulate our sleeping patterns, and contributes to the development of children’s eye health.
On the other hand, too much exposure to harmful blue light can potentially damage your eyes and put your general health at risk. Victims of digital eye strain often report difficulty sleeping, frequent headaches and tired or dry eyes. In the worst case scenario, these symptoms can begin to impose on your daily life, and mental health can be affected as a consequence. It is therefore strongly advised to take good care around blue light sources.
What is zFORT™ ?
zFORT™ blue light block technology is a coating that can be added to any glasses lens. It works by filtering out any blue light wavelengths that range from 380 to 500nm. The technology has recently been introduced by SmartBuyGlasses, and has proven to be effective in protecting your eyes and general health.
Opting for blue light blocking glasses means that your enjoyment of screen time will do nothing but increase. The benefit of zFORT™ is that you can turn any pair of glasses into blue light blockers, and look effortlessly stylish while shielding your eyes. Plus, it is offered at an excellent price point, so computer glasses are now accessible to all, just as they should be.
