As a blogger, student, social media/ marketing intern, and copy editor, I spend a ridiculous amount of time in front of the computer… often times more than healthy and always more than wanted. But to get by day to day and do what I love, it’s necessary.
So here’s the honest truth:
“Our eyes and bodies were not designed to sit in front of a computer all day long.”
Fortunately or unfortunately (however you look at it), this is a problem that is becoming increasingly hard to fight for a large majority of the population. Little did you know, there is something you can do to make it more comfortable and healthy. Invest in computer glasses. Computer glasses are no longer unsightly or unfashionable, and they won’t break the budget. Phonetic Eyewear is the perfect and only brand I’ve found that sells these new, fashionable alternatives. They have modern, trendy glasses for both men and women… and a large number of them. Without a doubt, you can find a style that works for you – from bright and sassy to traditional and preppy. My favorite is the Allison in tortoise, which is pictured above and below.
So how do these glasses make sitting on your phone or in front of your computer healthier and more comfortable? You can read all about it here, but essentially, these lenses have a special coating that reflects and absorbs the blue light that comes from your electronics and is harmful to your eyes. Blocking these harsh lights can relieve eye strain, itchiness, irritation, and headaches caused by looking at your electronic screens for long periods of time.
To make them even more convenient, Phonetic Eyewear frames are available as reading glasses, prescription glasses, or just plain computer glasses. I opted for regular computer glasses, because I’m an avid contact wearer, and since I’m near-sighted, I don’t need glasses to look at my computer screen late at night even after I’ve taken out my contacts.
As a person who has suffered from headaches due to digital eyestrain, I can thoroughly appreciate these glasses and all that they do. I’m happy to announce that with these glasses, I no longer have to get up and take blogging/homework/work breaks, which can be frustrating when fighting a quickly approaching deadline. And I look cute while doing it!
