In the previous article, we discussed “Do sunglasses block blue light?”. In this article, let’s talk about “Are blue light blocking glasses worth it?”.
Do I need to buy anti-blue light glasses?
Nowadays, mobile phones and computers are used more and more frequently. Whether at work or in life, it is hard to imagine what life would be like without these electronic products. It is impossible to protect the eyes without using these products. Especially on mobile phones, the current LED screen technology has gradually replaced LCD screens, and the self-luminous characteristics have also caused serious fatigue to the eyes, and there is no need to say that blue light is harmful to the eyes. At present, the truly harmful blue light is the wavelength. In the blue light of 400 to 440 nanometers, this blue light easily causes eyesight fatigue. In the case of heavy use, try to reduce the damage to the eyes and protect the eyes, which is also the main reason for motivating consumers to buy anti-blue glasses.
How do anti-blue light glasses protect the eyes?
The anti-blue light glasses available on the market, no matter what type, etc., are mainly the difference in anti-blue light effect, light transmittance, and frame, which will affect the cost of glasses. Obviously, the lens is the most important of these. I think that it is basically enough to choose 30% to 40% anti-blue light glasses. It is good to cut off the harmful blue light. It is not necessary to completely eliminate the blue light so that the chromatic aberration will not be too large, the light transmittance is better, and it also has a certain anti-blue light effect.(https://www.koalaeye.com/collections/blue-light-blocking-glasses)
Of course, to protect the eyes, it is not enough to rely on anti-blue glasses alone. The effect of anti-blue glasses is mainly to reduce the probability of eye diseases, and can not effectively relieve eye fatigue. Normal people between the ages of 20 and 40 blink about 20 times per minute. When you open your eyes and stare at a computer screen that changes rapidly, the number of blinks will be reduced to 4 or 5 times per minute, resulting in serious insufficient secretion of scum and dry eyes. Therefore, no matter how urgent the work is, you must pay attention to the rest of your eyes, close your eyes regularly, use eye drops when needed, and reduce the brightness of the screen as much as possible when looking at the screen. When the brightness of the screen is significantly higher than the ambient light It is easy to cause eye fatigue. Try to use it as little as possible in the dark. To be honest, it is more important to develop a good eye-using habit.
What are the functions of anti-blue glasses?
The myopia of young people is getting worse every year, and the main factor that causes myopia in young people is the high-energy blue light of mobile phones and computers. Children’s lenses are clearer and more transparent than adults and have a weaker effect of blocking and filtering the blue light of electronic products. The blue light transmittance of their lenses is several times higher than that of adults so there is more blue light penetrates the lens to reach the retina. Therefore, the damage caused by blue light to children's eyes is much more serious than that of adults. Naturally, be careful with blue light. When the child is facing the screen of the mobile phone and computer, wearing anti-blue glasses can more or less reduce the blue light and reduce the blue light energy. The blue light energy that enters the retina is not so much so strong, and naturally, it will not damage the pigment epithelial cells and photoreceptor cells on the retina, thus protecting the child's eyes.
The main function of anti-blue glasses is to relieve eye fatigue, reduce retinal damage, prevent myopia from deepening, and reduce the incidence of special eye diseases such as macular degeneration and cataracts. According to your own situation, if you are really looking at the phone and computer screen for a long time, wearing anti-blue glasses is better. Usually, pay more attention to the habit of using your eyes, rest your eyes appropriately, and play less with mobile phones and computers.
