Between office work, scrolling through Insta, and binge-watching new releases on Netflix, we spend a lot of time in front of digital screens. One study showed that Americans clock over 10.5 hours of daily media consumption — that’s nearly half of the day!
However, too much screen time will harm your eyes. Blue light emitted from screens cause digital eye strain which is the physical discomfort felt after a few hours spent in front of a computer or smartphone. Symptoms include dry, irritated eyes, blurred vision, eye fatigue, and even headaches.
Luckily, an increasing number of protective and stylish frames have hit the market which formulate eyeglasses with anti-reflective coating and customized lenses to reduce screen glare and counter digital eye strain. Those with or without prescription can order glasses with blue light protection! Check out some of our fave picks below:
