Blue Light Lenses and Computer Vision

There is no getting around the fact that we use our screens a lot. Screens are involved in work, school, socializing, shopping, planning, and many other things. Even though kicking screens out of our lives for good is unlikely, there are steps we can take to ensure that screens do not have a negative impact on our eye health and vision. We are here to help provide eye health education and eye care services at Saline Optometry/Chelsea Eyeglass Co. serving Saline, Chelsea, and the surrounding areas. Let’s take a closer look at blue light lenses and computer vision.

What Is Computer Vision?

Computer vision is a term used to describe the stress that prolonged screen exposure can have on your eyes. The screens of computers, tablets, and smartphones emit a special type of light known as blue light. This type of light is hard on the eyes. Your eyes are not designed to easily process this type of light especially not in the prolonged way people are exposed to it. Prolonged exposure to this light will cause computer vision. Computer vision is characterized by blurry vision, eye strain, headaches, and other symptoms.

Optometrists Can Help

If you suspect you are experiencing computer vision, visit an optometrist for help. An eye doctor will examine your eyes to determine if there are any existing vision problems or if there is any damage to your eyes. Blue light lenses might be suggested.

Blue light lenses are specially designed to filter out the blue light from screens. These lenses act as a barrier between your eyes and the screen. Blue light filters can be added to your lens prescription. If you do not currently have a lens prescription, you can purchase blue light glasses to wear while you are looking at the screen.
