After months of staying home and practicing social distancing, it was only inevitable that my screen time was going to go up. I hate to admit it, but some days I merely rotate between looking at my laptop screen for work, looking at my phone screen as a diversion, and back at my laptop again as I drift off to sleep watching a TV show. No surprise, then, to discover that my screen time had jumped more than 30% (and climbing ever higher). Not great, I know, so I decided it’s finally time to do something about it and that something is to invest in a pair of anti-blue-light glasses.
You’ve probably heard your friends and co-workers talking about them or sporting a pair of blue-light glasses—it seems like they’re garnering a good bit of buzz lately and after learning that blue light can cause things like headache, dizziness, fatigue, and loss of focus I can understand why. According to one study, 6 in 10 adults said they felt digital eye strain after just two hours of looking at a screen, and with this new work from home lifestyle, that number is more like 10 for me. In other words, I need all the help I can get. So to get started, I searched the internet high and low and found the best blue-light glasses that are effective and stylish enough to wear all day, too.
