If your work requires constant screen time, we suggest purchasing a pair of specially designed eyeglasses referred to as “computer glasses,” which is a new lens technology that is custom-engineered to protect your eyes from blue light, glare and other environmental stressors. They are available with or without a prescription.

Other methods you can use include the 20-20-20 rule; for every 20 minutes that you’re working up close, take a 20 second break to look at something 20 feet further away. This will break the movement path of your eyes on screen and allow them to refresh.

Eye protection from digital eye strain isn’t just necessary for long term computer users, but for casual users as well. Blue light emitted from our phones and televisions can be harsh for eyes even for short periods of time. That’s why we recommend adding the Blue-Violet Light Protection coating to any prescription eyewear to ensure comfortability at all times.
