What are the various types of Computer glasses?

The world is slowly metamorphosing into a digital world. As the digital age is catching up on us, it is no surprise that we spend prolonged durations of time on digital devices. From waking up notifications to catching up on the happenings of the day by night, our lives are characterized by digital devices and staring at monitors. Spending long durations of time on digital devices might lead to computer vision syndrome. The symptoms of these include eye strain, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, and others. The problems commonly associated with this computer vision syndrome are:


1. Optical noise – Glare creates optical noise, which might blur the vision. A problem predominantly found with people who work on primary light sources, such as computers

2. Eye strain – High-energy wavelengths emitted by artificial light sources like fluorescent bulbs, LED screens, computers and other digital devices might result in eye strain and fatigue.

3. Dry eyes – Prolonged, concentrated viewing of computer screens typically results in less blinking. This might lead to eyes losing the moisture and you ending up with dry, irritated eyes.

4. Troubled sleep- Do you face issues when it comes to having sound sleep? Continuous exposure to blue light affects your biological clock thus affecting your sleep pattern.

5. Headaches – Frequent incidents of recurring headaches might be due to sensitivity to light and eye discomfort, that might be due to continuous exposure to blue light.

This is where computer glasses come into play. Computer glasses are eyewear with blue filters that safeguard your eyes by keeping these ill effects at bay. Computer glasses are so designed to provide the most optimal vision and comfort while using computer.
