How to Relieve Digital Eye Strain with Blue Light-Blocking Glasses

In our modern digital world, eye strain from screens has become an increasing problem. Staring at computers, smartphones, and other devices for hours can lead to dry, irritated eyes, headaches, blurred vision, and neck/shoulder pain. The main culprit? Exposure to blue light emitted from these digital screens.

Symptoms of Digital Eye Strain

If you spend a lot of time in front of screens, you've likely experienced some of these unpleasant symptoms:

Causes of Digital Eye Strain

There are several key factors that contribute to digital eye strain:

Blue Light Exposure

Blue light rays have shorter wavelengths and more energy compared to other visible light. Prolonged exposure can lead to eye strain, disrupted sleep cycles, and potentially retinal damage over time.

Screen Glare

Glare and reflections on screens force your eyes to work harder to see content clearly.

Poor Lighting Conditions

Improper lighting around your screen can cause eye strain, as your eyes constantly adjust between the bright screen and ambient lighting.

Uncorrected Vision Issues

Existing vision problems, such as astigmatism, farsightedness, or aging eyes, put extra strain on your eyes when using digital devices.

How Blue-Light Blocking Glasses Work

One of the most effective solutions for relieving digital eye strain is wearing specialized blue-light-blocking glasses. The lenses have a filter that blocks or absorbs the harmful blue-violet wavelengths emitted by digital screens while letting other beneficial light through.

By reducing blue light exposure, these glasses can:

  • Decrease eye strain and discomfort
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Potentially protect long-term eye health

Other Tips to Reduce Digital Eye Strain

In addition to blue light-blocking glasses, you can further minimize digital eye strain with these tips:


20-20-20 Rule

Every 20 minutes, shift your eyes to look at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds.


Proper Screen Positioning

Ideally, position your screen 20-26 inches from your eyes with no glare.


Adjust Settings

Lower screen brightness, increase text size and try a warmer color temperature.


Take Breaks

Stand up and give your eyes a break from screens periodically.


Good Lighting

Ensure you have adequate lighting around your screen to reduce glare and harsh contrasts.


Stay Hydrated

Keep your eyes lubricated by drinking plenty of water.


Blink Often

Make an effort to blink regularly to rewet and refocus your eyes.

Don't Let Digital Eye Strain Go Untreated

Prolonged digital eye strain can impact your productivity, health, and overall quality of life. Make the smart choice and invest in a quality pair of blue light-blocking glasses, especially if you spend hours each day in front of screens. Vicci Eyewear offers stylish options with advanced lenses specifically designed to filter blue light and reduce digital eye strain. Give your hardworking eyes the relief they deserve!

A Mama's Boy's Love for His Mother

Vicci™ Eyewear was inspired by a son’s love for his mother and his passion for fashion.

David Abramovici, the Founder of Vicci™ Eyewear, came from a family of artisans dedicated to craftsmanship since the 1920s.

David recalls that when his mother was around 65 years old, she would always ask him to stop by the local pharmacy to pick up some generic readers.

He would spend at least 20 minutes every time he went there, just standing in front of a rack full of tacky, ugly readers. It was difficult for him to choose a "nice" design that he thought would look good on his mother.

His mother enjoyed attending events and spending money on her dresses and accessories. Unfortunately, the readers are often underwhelming, and she was embarrassed to ever be seen wearing them. Like most women, she'd usually hide it in her lovely purse and would always look around before using them to read the menu or bill.

David wondered why there weren’t more choices for high-quality and fashionable custom readers for older women like his mother. Something she’d actually love to wear and be proud to be seen wearing.

And that’s when it hit him!
