I need magnified reading glasses, but why do I need computer glasses?
Do your eyes feel tired at the end of a long day at work? The artificial light from computer screens can have several negative effects on your health, including:
- Dry eyes
- Eye strain
- Blurred vision
Digital eye strain is an increasingly common problem as we are all spending more and more time in front of screens. The blue light given off by digital devices doesn’t just cause temporary discomfort, it can aggravate problems like cataracts and macular degeneration. It’s also been shown to stop you from sleeping properly as it lowers your body’s production of the sleep hormone melatonin.
Smartphones, tablets and other devices that emit light have a peak wavelength in the blue range of the spectrum. This blue light supresses melatonin production, which helps to control your sleep. It also is known to increase alertness. Both increase the likelihood of insomnia and make it harder to sleep, especially when these devices are used right before bed. Research in the Journal of Psychiatric Research (Shechter, A, et al. 2018) discovered that using amber tinted lenses when using these devices can block the blue light and negate the problems caused by the light. The amber tinted glasses in this set will allow you to watch your favourite TV series in bed and still get a good night’s sleep. This unique set contains one pair of normal reading glasses and one pair of tinted reading glasses. The computer glasses in this set are ½ power weaker in magnification, as recommended by eye doctors. This is because the distance you read a screen from tends to be different to normal reading distance, so by using a lower strength you can avoid eye strain.
Created in a stylish and timeless unisex design, these black and brown plastic frames will suit all faces. We stock a wide range of magnification strengths, from the common +2.0 to hard to find strengths from +2.5 to +4.5. These glasses are perfect for home or office use and will help your eyes to stay comfortable and healthy even after long reading sessions. They’re the perfect fit for modern lifestyles, allowing you to read comfortably whether it’s a printed book or an eBook, a newspaper or a website. Look after your eyes with this great value reading glasses combo pack!
