What is Blue Light?

Blue light is a type of short wavelength and a colour in the evident light range that human eyes can see. As a short wavelength, blue light produces a high volume of energy which can be discharged from different varieties of light sources, including the sun. Even though the eyes are equipped with different structures to protect themselves from numerous types of lights, your retina is light-sensitive and can be damaged, for example by UV rays.

While your cornea and lens protects the retina, it isn't equipped with structures that protect your retina from artificial blue light. When facing high amounts of artificial blue light, your retina can be damaged. Even when we consciously prevent an excessive amount of blue light, unfortunately, it’s everywhere. Digital screens particularly contain a significant amount of artificial blue light.

Blue light glasses are also known as blue light blocking or filter glasses. These are a type of glasses with a lens coating designed to lower the quantity of blue light that reaches your eyes.

The lenses are specifically designed to reduce excessive amounts of blue light and prevent potential damage. Dresden Vision has both prescription and non-prescription blue light glasses in a range of frame colours and sizes. Customise your frame and arm colours, and mix and match your mood with our blue light glasses.

The Advantages of Blue Light Glasses

Just like all glasses types, blue light glasses also have unique advantages to take into consideration. Nowadays, most people think about the effects of the blue light and are looking for solutions to prevent unnecessary eye conditions. While the topic of blue light is on trend right now, its been in our lives for many years in an increasingly digital world.

Most people face increased blue light while socialising or at work, and while using digital screens for multiple hours every day. Spending significant amounts of time on screens, being outside and in other places with LED lights may damage your eyes in the future. Healthcare specialists frequently recommend wearing blue light glasses to protect our eyes from blue light’s potential effects.

5 Simple Reasons to Wear Blue Light Glasses

We’ve listed five reasons to wear blue light glasses during your everyday life:

1- Better Sleep

Spending hours on screens will make your eyes feel ‘tired’, just like spending long hours in the sunlight. The reason for this induced fatigue is the short wavelengths. Did you know that short wavelengths delay release of melatonin, also known as the sleep-inducing hormone?

Normally, the release of the melatonin starts a couple of hours before your bedtime. Looking at digital screens may delay melatonin release and this makes it more difficult to fall asleep immediately.

If you are used to checking screens before going to sleep, wearing blue light glasses may help you to sleep better.

2- Reduced eye strain

While constantly looking at screens, your eye muscles may become strained causing sore eyes. Blue light glasses help reduce eye strain by adjusting your eye muscles ergonomically.

Blue light may be the reason for focusing problems as it makes your eyes uncomfortable by producing extra strain. Blue light glasses can ****help increase the contrast on your screen to make your focusing process easier, subsequently reducing eye strain.

3- Fewer headaches

As with some other light types, blue light may also trigger migraines and other kinds of headaches. While wearing prescription glasses might decrease the instance of headache, special types of glasses like blue light glasses may also reduce migraines and other headaches more than just your usual glasses.

4- Reduced risk of eye diseases

While your cornea and eye lenses are great at blocking harmful UV light to reach your retina, they are not sufficiently equipped to block all harmful lights, including blue light. In some cases, retina damages may increase the risk of developing several eye diseases such as macular degeneration. If blue light penetrates your retina, you may feel symptoms similar to macular degeneration and you may also develop cataracts. To prevent such consequences, wearing blue light glasses is recommended by optometrists.

5- Frequent use of digital devices

Stepping away from your screens is the easiest solution to prevent blue light. But in this day and age it’s not easy to avoid digital devices, especially if we need to work on computers. Being conscious of your screen time, as well as wearing blue light glasses will help you to minimise blue light exposure.
