The sun is not the only thing to emit blue light. Our digital best friends: phones, laptops, televisions etc. all produce it too. Unfortunately, the blue light radiated from our screens is certainly NOT our best friend. Contact with too much blue light can be seriously damaging to our eye health, causing the eye to age prematurely. We must therefore be increasingly careful.
After learning about the dangers posed by blue light, we are inevitably faced with two options. The first is to reduce the time spent looking at digital screens. However, in the modern world, we are increasingly dependent on technology, so this is a less appealing option. The best solution is therefore blue light glasses.
SmartBuyGlasses offers zFORT™ technology. This is a lens coating that can be applied to any glasses you choose, and it will solidly protect your eyes from blue light wavelengths. Another alternative is to purchase a pair of blue light filtering glasses to block out the threatening blue rays. Such products are greatly recommended for those that spend considerable amounts of time on the phone or on a laptop.
What is Blue Light?
The rays emitted by the sun come in all sorts of colours, from red to orange, yellow to green, and of course, blue. Each ray is different, and exhibits a varying level of energy and each has a different wavelength. The blue light rays have a shorter wavelength than the rest, but their energy levels are higher, and therefore much more intense. The human eye is consequently at risk, as blue rays can very easily penetrate the eye’s retina.
Are there any advantages to blue light?
As a matter of fact, there are. Despite it being common knowledge that blue light rays can damage the human eye, the waves aren’t all bad. Some blue light exposure is good for improving our mood and memory. Blue light also helps the body to regulate our sleeping patterns, and contributes to the development of children’s eye health.
On the other hand, too much exposure to blue light can severely harm your eyes and potentially threaten your general health. Sufferers of digital eye strain often report trouble sleeping, frequent headaches and dry or tired eyes. Such symptoms can grow to affect your day-to-day life, and in the worst cases, have a negative effect on mental health. We therefore need to be aware of blue light, the harm it can cause, and how to protect ourselves from it.
What is zFORT™ ?
zFORT™ blue light block technology has been introduced by SmartBuyGlasses. It is a smart feature that is remarkably effective at shielding the eye from blue light wavelengths that range between 380 and 500 nm. This protects both your eyes and your overall health.
If you enjoy spending time on your phone, scrolling through social media, playing candy crush or texting. If you love to catch up on your favourite TV shows and watch the latest blockbusters. If you are reliant on a laptop for work. All these things will become so much more enjoyable once you are seen sporting blue light filter glasses. Your eyes will be less strained and suffer less discomfort.
Benefits of zFORT™
In all honesty, zFORT™ is full of benefits. We believe them to be essential to preserving your eye health and continuing to enjoy your screen time in the digital era we know today. The best benefit of zFORT™ is that you can turn any pair of glasses into blue light blockers, and look effortlessly stylish while protecting your eyes. In addition, it is offered at an excellent price point, so computer glasses are now accessible to all, just as they should be. But if that isn’t enough to convince you, here are some more perks:
- zFORT™ shields you from blue light, which is essential when working on a computer, gaming or watching TV for extended time periods.
- Continuous exposure to blue light rays can increase the risk of eye strain. zFORT™ will put a stop to this.
- The technology will therefore facilitate a good night’s sleep and reduce the risk of premature eye ageing.
