Blue Light Blocking Glasses
At Advanced Eye Care, serving Amarillo, Canyon, Dumas, and Hereford, TX, we're here for your eye care needs. We provide annual eye exams to help you see more clearly and manage any conditions. If you're having trouble sleeping at night or are experiencing headaches from staring at a screen during a long day at work, blue light blocking lenses may be a good fit for you. Below, we'll take a look at why blue light blocking lenses are beneficial and help you ultimately decide these should be part of your eye care plan.
What Are Blue Light Blocking Lenses?
Since computers and cell phones emit blue light, these devices can make it hard to fall asleep at night and cause eye strain and migraines. If you struggle falling asleep after looking at a screen or you notice that you experience eye strain after working for a prolonged period of time, blue light blocking lenses can be helpful. Blue light blocking lenses work by allowing certain types of light through the lens, while filtering blue light. This means that you're still able to clearly see your device, but the type of light that affects your eyes is blocked.
Are Blue Light Blocking Lenses Necessary as Part of Your Eye Care Plan?
If you experience fatigue or your eyes are dry from digital screens, we recommend speaking with our optometrists about blue light blocking lenses. Since these are available with a prescription, they can be added to your existing treatment. However, depending on your preference, the glasses are available without a prescription as well. Our eye doctor will work closely with you to ensure that there aren't preexisting conditions causing your eye strain and will recommend the option that will help you enjoy a more comfortable day at work. These can also allow you to enjoy a good night of sleep and let you utilize your devices longer.
