All You Need To Know About BlueBuster & Blue Light Filter Reading Glasses
Ease Digital Eye Strain
BlueBuster lenses reduce digital eyestrain for more comfort when viewing computers or tablet screens. Eye Doctors recommend it for everyone who spends time in front of a screen as well as for over contact lens wear and for students. (with or without reading correction) Available in all eyeOs styles in Plano (no power) and magnification power that ranges from +0.50 to +4.00 in 0.25 increments. They include all the features of our Hex-O-Tech lens technology. And a great price of $125.
Screen Time Tips
If you've experienced the symptoms of digital eyestrain from long hours in front of your computer or tablet screen, then you will be glad to learn how to make screen time more comfortable on your eyes. You can learn more about the symptoms and impact of digital eye strain by visiting The Vision Council website. The Vision Council recommends "lenses featuring magnification, plus anti-reflective and blue light-filtering capabilities". And that is exactly what our BlueBuster lenses do. In addition, our Blue Filtering technology is built in the monomer of the lens and not a coating. Blue Filters that are produced by coating lenses are not as effective.
Wear BlueBuster Lenses
Wear BlueBuster lenses to reduce the scattered and defocused blue light emitting from your screen.
BlueBuster lenses block the shortest blue light wavelengths that focus the furthest from the retina to substantially reduce the scattered and defocused blue light. BlueBuster lenses block 100% up to 410nm, 84% at 420nm and 40% at 430nm.
Blue light contributes to eyestrain because it is a color that the eye is unable to bring into sharp focus and because it easily scatters and contributes to hazy vision. Eye Doctors recommend BlueBuster lenses for wearing over contacts to view the screen or read and for students whether they wear glasses or not to help relieve blue light linked eyestrain and accommodative stress from long hours of focusing up close.
Ease The Strain Of Reading
Our eye muscles have to hold our eyes in the correct position to bring close objects into focus, like the letters and images viewed on a screen. Having a small boost of magnification with eyeOs readers, even if you don't wear glasses or need reading correction, will ease accommodative stress and eye fatigue.
Take A Break
Every 20 minutes look 20 feet away for 20 seconds. When we stare at a screen, we tend not to blink, and so our eye's become tired and dry.
Blue Light is one of several factors that can contribute to digital eyestrain, with prolonged screen use. Digital eyestrain is a byproduct of the digital age in which we live.
In a 2017 survey by Nielsen, Americans spend in excess of 10 hours per day staring at blue light rich computer screens and other handheld device screens; 5 of those hours is spent looking at a smartphone.
The visual effects of digital eyestrain result from our eyes straining to focus on the images emitting from computer screens and hand-held devices.
The eyes have to work hard to focus on the tiny dots called pixels that make up the image on the screen. Another contributor to digital eyestrain is the blue light from screens. It is out of focus by its nature because it doesn't reach the retina, the light-sensing layer at the back of the eye that turns the light into signals for the brain to interpret for sight. Light that comes to a focal point too soon inside the eye such as blue light is out of focus and blurred.
Another factor affecting the quality of vision in the presence of blue light is scatter. Light scatter or straylight inside the eye is the most intense for blue light. This straylight can reduce visual acuity and contrast sensitivity (the ability to see objects against a background) and is sometimes referred to as visual noise. This visual noise produces blur and poor visual contrast. So; you can see how our eyes become tired with long hours at the computer.
