Humanity has entered into a new digital age. The time spent watching movies and playing video games on TV is nothing compared to the time spent on smartphones, tablets and computers. In combination with more people using the computer to work from home, the amount of digital screen time on our eyes has reached a new level. There are several negative consequences associated with excess digital screen time.
Negative Consequences of Digital Screen Time
Some adverse effects of increased digital screen exposure are eye strain, blurred vision, headaches and possibly trouble sleeping. If you have any of these symptoms, you may want to contact us at VS Eyewear to discuss the options available for computer glasses.
Computer glasses help block the blue light emitted from digital screens. Blue light is known to penetrate deep into the center of the retina. Not only does this blue light penetration explain the symptoms of eye strain, but it could also cause macular degeneration (destruction of the cells in the retina).
Macular degeneration slowly deteriorates the central portion of the retina (macula). As this deterioration continues, so does the loss of vision. At some point, macular degeneration can lead to blindness. Once thought of as an age-related condition, macular degeneration is increasingly showing up in younger individuals. This condition doesn’t, at present, have a cure. However, one of the preventive measures is to reduce the amount of blue light entering the eyes. One option is to wear computer glasses.
