    Computer eyewear is specially designed for optimizing vision when viewing content on screens and can be provided with or without a prescription. This eyewear can utilize different filters, lenses and materials tailored to lifestyle needs. Users experience more relaxation, sharper focus and reduced blurriness and pixilation, which can cause discomfort unless corrected. The lens designs allow adults and children's eyes to relax, adjusting to intermediate-distance objects and reducing glare during prolonged use of digital devices. One of the most popular lens options is the anti-reflective, or AR, lens, which decreases reflection from overhead lighting to improve acuity and contrast. These specialized lenses can be combined with blue light-blocking capabilities. Blue light-blocking lenses selectively absorb harmful blue light, keeping it from entering through the cornea and reaching the back of the eye. These lenses are either infused with melanin or made to filter a specific range of blue light.

    Headaches, eye pain, redness, watering, double vision and loss of focus are all associated with digital eyestrain. There are numerous things you can do to help avoid the condition, including take a break,take frequent 15 minute breaks and focus your eyes on a distant object across the room. This will give the focusing muscle a chance to relax.Try palming. This is essentially meditation for the eyes. To do this, you will close your eyes and place the centers of your palms over your eyes. Take deep slow breaths and relax your eye muscles.Blink frequently. When doing demanding digital work, your blink rate decreases. A conscious effort should be made to blink lightly every 10 to 15 seconds.


    Most of us can not go for more than an hour without looking at our smart phones or tablets and we spend much of the day working at a computer. All of these devices emit blue light, linked to everything from eye strain and retina damage to sleeping problems. So as an adult, when we look at our phones at 12 inches and now a child looks at their phone at six inches, it's not twice as much emitted, it's 4 times.there is a solution that doesn't involve giving up your electronic devices, BluTech lenses. They contain pigments that filter high-energy blue and ultra-violet light.The headaches ceased immediately which was wonderful,and eyes don't tear anymore, and you will not feel as tired as before and will sleep better. it actually relaxes your eyes, it eliminates that eye strain and more importantly, it doesn't let that wavelength of light enter into your eye.The BluTech lenses come with almost any prescription and are also available in non-prescription form.

    Just like the muscles in your body, your eyes can get tired. For the job they do, your eyes contain the strongest muscles in your body. But as strong as they are, they can become strained and fatigued by sitting in front of a computer, under fluorescent lights or in front of a TV for a couple of hours. This is called digital eye strain. Digital eye strain can be diagnosed by an eye doctor through an eye exam and a discussion on your lifestyle and work habits. If you have digital eye strain, your eye doctor has new technology designed to help you combat it.

    There are a number of ways to protect your peepers from the damage caused by excessive screen time.It is recommended building a work space that is conducive for keeping good posture and minimizing eye strain. This includes centering your computer monitor directly in front of you, sitting arms-length away from the screen, positioning the monitor so the top of the screen is level with the eyes and making adjustments to the work area to avoid computer glare. Some eye doctors recommend investing in computer eyewear with an anti-reflective lens that can also be combined with a specially formulated coating that blocks and selectively absorbs blue light. While it would be ideal to cut down the amount of time you spend in front of a screen each day, it's not always realistic. One way to alleviate eye discomfort is to follow the 20/20/20 rule, which is to take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and look at something at least 20 feet away.
