The 101 on Screen Glasses

We spend almost half of our day using our devices, our computers, our TV’s, our tablets and smart phones. We are living in the age of constant connectivity, and it is not going away anytime soon.

Each of these devices emit a significant amount of blue light which is artificial UV back lighting that helps to see the images on the screen better. But, the exposure to this blue light is very worrisome considering the amount of time people spend using their devices and the proximity their screens are to our faces


All visible blue light passes through the cornea and the lenses of the eye and reaches the retina. Anything that passes directly to the retina can cause problems over time. Because of this, according to the Vision Council, 70% of adults experience some kind of digital eye strain be it dry, red eyes, blurring vision, headaches, neck strain and overall fatigue.

At ds we carry screen glasses that help to deflect this UV light. Using an anti-reflective coating on the lenses, these glasses have made a difference in so many people’s lives. And now they come in reader strengths.

Come to ds to check them out for yourself!
