Benefits of Blue Light Lenses

Blue light lenses, also known as blue light-blocking or computer glasses, have gained popularity due to the increasing use of digital devices and screens in our daily lives. While these devices have undoubtedly enhanced our productivity and connectivity, they also increased expose us to blue light. These lenses filter or block some of that high-energy visible blue light, which is emitted not only by our screens, but also contemporary artificial lighting and the sun.
This high-energy light has been linked to various eye-related issues, such as digital eye strain, dryness, and potential long-term damage. Recognizing the need for protection in our modern world, Arena Eye Care Optometry in Sacramento, CA, offers blue light lenses that shield our eyes from harmful rays.

Minimize Eye Strain

By reducing exposure to blue light, these lenses help alleviate eye strain by reducing glare and minimizing the risk of developing conditions, like computer vision syndrome. Symptoms of blue light exposure include dry eyes, eye fatigue, headaches, and blurred vision. Blue light lenses can help alleviate these symptoms thus making it easier to work or read on screens for longer periods.

Better Sleep Quality

Blue light suppresses the production of melatonin, a hormone responsible for regulating sleep cycles. Historically we were exposed to blue light almost exclusively by the sun, which is why we get sleepy after sunset.  Looking at our digital devices at night extends that blue light exposure making it more difficult to fall asleep. By wearing blue light lenses in the evening or before bed, you can minimize this disruption and improve the quality of your sleep. These lenses act as a shield against artificial sources of blue light, allowing your body to produce melatonin at normal times which promote better restful night.

Reduced Risk of Macular Degeneration

Research suggests the potential link between prolonged blue light exposure and age-related macular degeneration. Blue light lenses may help reduce this risk, especially in higher-risk individuals.
