NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's workplace, it's nearly impossible to avoid spending time looking at a computer screen. Even outside of the office, we've become glued to our devices and spend countless hours exposing ourselves to the damaging effects of excessive screen time, including eye strain, blurred vision, migraines, and even sleep disruption. In response, GlassesUSA.com, the leading online retailer for prescription eyewear, has launched new specialized Computer Glasses with digital block lenses, specifically designed to protect users' eyes from all digital devices.
Last year, The Vision Council found that 65 percent of U.S. adults reported having some kind of digital eye strain as a result of using devices for hours at a time. Adverse health effects include muscle straining, dry or red eyes, blurred vision, headaches, back pain, neck pain and general fatigue. If you're a smartphone slave, notorious for sorting through your social channels at bedtime without protective eyewear, you may be doing more damage than you think. For 9-to-5'ers, the next e-mail you write could be the one to send you straight to the doctor.
"We are committed to helping our customers take care of their eyes while informing them on how to make smarter decisions about their eye health in an easy, affordable way," said Daniel Rothman, CEO of GlassesUSA.com. "Choosing a pair is a quick four-step process that includes choosing your frame with the help of a virtual mirror, entering a prescription – if you have one – choosing your lenses, and adding the Digital Block."
The Computer Glasses with digital block lenses reflect and filter the blue light emitted in artificial light from electronic devices. When light hits the lenses it displays a blue sheen on the exterior and a yellow one on the interior. The glasses can be worn throughout the day, both indoors and outdoors and do not require a prescription.
