Blue Light Glasses in Chicago, IL

Block Blue Light with Big City Optical

Screens are everywhere — in fact, the average American spends seven hours a day looking at a device of some kind. For many, these screens are necessary for daily activities at work and school, but overexposure to them and the harmful blue light they produce can lead to vision problems and uncomfortable symptoms. At Big City Optical, we have what you need to filter blue light and avoid its resulting symptoms.

What is Blue Light?

Blue light is a high energy, short wavelength light emitted from most light sources. Our widespread daily use of mobile phones, televisions, computer monitors, and tablets has resulted in our eyes being bombarded by blue light on a regular basis. This has led to a rise in computer vision syndrome, a condition that is characterized by excessive screen use.

Symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome

Symptoms of computer vision syndrome include persistent eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, and neck and shoulder pain, all of which are exacerbated by prolonged digital screen use. These problems interfere with essential daily tasks at work or school, and can negatively impact leisurely activities like reading, sports, and video games. It is essential to seek help from an eye care professional if you’re experiencing these symptoms, as they can lead to more serious conditions if left unmanaged.
