Media Consumption and Your Eyes
Our media consumption has increased drastically in the last five years. We read our textbooks on tablets and laptops while grandma posts her vacation photos on Snapchat. When looking at patient intake forms it’s common to see 8-12 hours of near continuous screen usage, making our Blue Light protective lenses a great option for your glasses. The Blue Light safeguard options are either BlueTech lens material or Hoya’s Recharge which also incorporates anti-glare properties with a 2-year unlimited replacement warranty.
The main sources of blue light in our lives are the sun and the screens most people work at each day. With blue light being the hardest on our eyes it’s more important than ever to protect our eyes from the constant strain. With that constant strain comes the increased risk of macular degeneration, a condition that is usually age-related. However, with the constant exposure of our eyes to the blue light from the sun and then our screens scientists have seen an increase in the non-age-related macular degeneration.
If you’re unsure if you should incorporate Hoya’s blue light protection lenses in your primary pair of glasses, take a look at the symptoms below see if you match the description.
