Large Metal-Frame Glasses
This pair of thin, lightweight metal framed computer glasses have a large lens making them easier to wear over your prescription glasses. They also:
- Have a lightweight thin metal frame which can be purchased in two different colour options: Silver and Metallic Grey.
- Have clear lenses which measure approximately 5.5cm wide by 5cm high.
Computer glasses should be labeled UV400. According to one manufacturer, this is what distinguishes more expensive computer glasses from "cheap" ones. As a result, all of our computer glasses are UV400.
All of our computer glasses can be worn over another pair of glasses. Alternatively, you can get an 'Essilor' coating on prescription lenses. Or non-prescription or prescription lenses under the Crizal® Prevencia™ label. But these options are much more expensive.
One of the benefits of having a separate pair of computer glasses is that they are best worn only while you are at your computer or tablet – we need some natural blue light getting to our eyes. People who wear blue-blocking glasses all the time start exhibiting new problems in their energy. This can result in less energy, lower mood, reduced creativity and/or weaker immunity.
However, wearing blue light-blocking glasses for 2 to 3 hours before bed improves quality of sleep.
- Why We Need Computer Glasses
Our eyesight is one of our most precious assets. But it's easy to take it for granted ... until it starts to go wrong. And unfortunately, our eyes are now being stressed at an earlier age than ever before.
For thousands of years, human eyesight has been perfectly adapted to see in sunlight, moonlight, starlight and firelight. But now we are in the age of LED lights, halogen lights, fluorescent lights and screens - computer screens, tablet screens, television screens, mobile phone screens, e-reader screens and much more besides.
The problem is that we haven't had time to adapt to these new forms of light. Consequently, we now suffer from artificial light-induced ...
- Eye strain
- Dry eyes
- Loss of visual focus
- Brain fog
- Early-onset retinal damage
This is what scientists are saying about the effects of blue light, mostly from electronic devices, on our eyes ...
“It’s no secret that blue light harms our vision by damaging the eye’s retina." Dr. Ajith Karunarathne
"If you shine blue light on retinal, the retinal kills photoreceptor cells ... Photoreceptor cells do not regenerate in the eye. When they're dead, they're dead for good." Kasun Ratnayake, 'UT chemists discover how blue light speeds blindness'
Safeguarding your vision should be a primary concern for any health-conscious person. In short, it's never too soon to start protecting your eyes - or your chidren's eyes - from the harmful effects of electronic screens.
