With the rise of technology we are truly in a computer age.
More and more people own cell phones that are pretty much no different than computers at this point – accomplishing many tasks and a valuable element to many business professionals’ lives!
With so many more people on computers, tablets, and smartphones; it is important to note potential health factors and concerns that can arise from prolonged use of these devices.
Blue Light Spectrum
Computer screens and monitors give off “blue light” ends of the light spectrum which happen to be particularly hard on the human eyes.
This is because the human eye has a hard time focusing this end of the light spectrum as opposed to the warmer colors like red, orange, and yellow.
What does that mean for my eyes?
Prolonged eye exposure, aka looking at your monitor screens too long, often give you a headache, right?
That’s because your eyes are working very hard to focus the blue light spectrum images being broadcast to your brain. If you look at a blue LED you’ll notice a small ring around the bulb. That is because our eyes are not calibrated fully to render the light from the blue side of the spectrum as well.
So what happens is our eyes are working harder and harder trying to focus and from staring at monitors all day.
Luckily there is a solution to the headaches and stress on the eyes…
Gunnar Computer Eye Glasses
These guys help solve your eye strain problems by using a clever filter.
What they did is design a glass to specifically filter and adjust the blue light spectrum of color coming out of your monitor, into a warmer color light which then enters your eyes.
These help to ease the work and strain that is put on your eyes by dodging the blue light with an amber colored lens.
Not only that, they also reduce glare which means they are helping your eyes out double time!
Gunnar Glasses have taken the gamer industry by storm as they are really sleek looking designs and really cater to a professional gamer – who tends to spend over 40 hours per week staring at a computer monitor.
Not only gamers can benefit either, any business professional who spends a decent amount of time looking at a computer monitor could really use these and be impressed with the difference in eye fatigue they assist with.
A friend of mine, who owns his own carpet cleaning company (expertcarpetcleanalbany.com) bought a pair of these for his son who spends a lot of time on his computer… He tried them out one night and gave me an honest recommendation himself too!
Well game on gamers – these Gunnar Optics are here to stay and can help you pull out the late nights with no worries!
