As I get older, my eyesight is slowly kicking the can! Never in my life have I needed glasses, but the time has finally come. Having worked online for the past four years, plus all of the recreational electronic use that we all do, I’ve developed a strong sensitivity to blue light! At the beginning of the year, I picked up some blue light blocking glasses, and I’m ready to let you know why these are the best things ever!
I’ve had WAY less headaches
For years I dealt with headaches all the time. I thought it was not drinking enough water, or my sinuses were just having a good time. It never occurred to me that the screens on my tv, phone, and laptop could be what was causing the issue! Someone mentioned something about how blue light could be causing us to have horrible sleeping patterns, as well as intense headaches.
So, naturally, I hopped over to Amazon and picked up these blue light blocking glasses. It has made a huge difference. I almost never have headaches anymore, and I’m able to work longer as well, it’s a win-win!
Blue light blocking glasses are actually saving my eyes!
When I was younger, I had great vision. I could see clear as day, and I was convinced that the bad eyesight gene had skipped me. Since I work online all the time, these glasses have seriously given my eyes a break! While my eyesight definitely isn’t what it used to be, my eyesight hasn’t been getting worse, and I’ll take that!
It actually is helping me limit my time online!
This is the best thing that has come from blue light blocking glasses is that it in a weird way brings me back into the real world. While the glasses are totally comfortable, I get annoyed wearing them for too long since it is not something I normally wear. It’s actually a benefit because it acts as a reminder to put the phone or laptop away and spend more time IRL. I’ve caught myself a few times this year spending too much time online. Right now, I think we can all relate to that, right? So, not only is it helping my eyes, but it is really helping my mental health as well.
