Blue light (HEV) penetrates all the way to your retina and has been shown that too much exposure to blue light can damage light sensitive cells in the retina. This causes changes that are similar to those of macular degeneration, which can lead to permanent vision loss. Many eye care professionals have concerns that the blue light exposure from digital screens might increase a person's risk of macular degeneration later in life. Using Splendenti Blue Light and UV Protection Eyewear can help reduce your risk to macular degeneration.
Digital Eye Fatigue
Short wavelength, high energy blue light scatters more easily than other visible light and makes it not as easily focused. When you're looking at your digital screen that emit significant amounts of blue light, this unfocused visual light reduces contrast and can contribute to digital eye strain. Research has shown that lenses that block blue light with wavelengths less than 450 nm increase contrast significantly. Therefore, Splendenti Blue Light and UV Protection Eyewear with yellow-tinted lenses will increase comfort when you're viewing digital devices for extended periods of time.
Blue light is very important in regulating circadian rhythm - your body's natural wakefulness and sleep cycle. Exposure to blue light during daytime hours helps maintain a healthful circadian rhythm. But too much blue light late at night can disrupt this cycle, causing sleepless nights and daytime fatigue.
People who use their electronic devices before bed have a harder time falling and staying asleep. Splendenti Blue Light and UV Protection Eyewear reduces the most harmful types of blue light to help your body keep its natural sleep schedule. If you are using your digital device late at night and have trouble sleeping you should notice a difference immediately when you first use Splendenti Blue Light and UV Protection Eyewear.
Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)
Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) is a group of eye and vision problems such as eyestrain, loss of focus, blurred vision and dry or irritated eyes. You will experience eye discomfort and vision problems when viewing digital screens for extended periods because extended focus on a digital screens can cause insufficient tear flow to your eyes as well as increased strain on the ocular muscles. This strain is exacerbated as your eyes attempt to compensate for the decreased visual sharpness caused by glare and reflection from your digital screen. Your eyes work harder when viewing a digital screen and as a result make you susceptible to the development of CVS symptoms. The average North American worker spends 7 hours a day on the computer either in school, the office or working from home. CVS symptoms can occur with as little as 2 hours of continuous digital screen use every day. Splendenti Blue Light and UV Protection Eyewear is an effective solution to alleviate symptoms of CVS by significantly reducing glare and combined with an anti-reflective coating will also cut down reflection from your digital device.
