Eliminating Computer Eye Strain And Preventing Computer Vision Problems
The term “computer eye strain” has been used for a while to refer to the discomfort that many computer workers have experienced due to staring at a computer screen all day. But the symptoms of computer eye strain are showing up in a wider range of people today, not just computer workers. In the modern world, everyone – from children to the elderly – are spending more and more time looking at screens. These screens, on laptops, tablets, phones and gaming devices, all tend to emit a spectrum of blue light that can cause strain and could have a negative effect on eyesight. Computer vision problems are not just an issue for office workers anymore.
Blue light blocking lenses from your eye doctor in Fairfax were created to address the growing problem of computer eye strain and to prevent the problems so common with computer vision. The coating on blue light blocking lenses prevents the potentially harmful spectrum of blue light from reaching your eyes. The blue blocking lens coating is designed to help minimize strain and avoid the possible damage that blue light may pose to the tissues of your eye.
