The idea of how much computer usage that is considered to be "too much," has been researched for over 20 years. According to the Vision Council, over 80% of American adults spend more than two hours a day on their digital devices. It's safe to say that our TVs, computers and smart phones aren't going anywhere anytime soon, so we thought of a way to help prevent the symptoms of digital eye strain - the feelings of fatigue, dry eyes, headaches, and more - all caused by too much exposure to blue light.
The lenses we use at Phonetic Eyewear are designed to combat the effects of Digital Eye Strain and alleviate the symptoms associated with Computer Vision Syndrome. By using a proprietary lens coating, we are able to reflect a portion of the potentially harmful blue light emitted from computers and other back-lit devices.
