Can you remember the last time you spent a whole day with no phone, no TV or no computer? No, we can’t either. SCARY! Screen-time is very much a part of everyday life thanks to the ‘always-on’ mentality of today’s working and social world. This means that the average person can spend up to 65% of their waking day staring at their phone, computer or TV? EVEN SCARIER! And it will come as no surprise to learn that the Great Lockdown of 2020 will have only contributed even further to this culture.
But it’s not all doom and gloom, much entertainment comes from our devices. How would we have coped during quarantine without binging on boxsets, sharing silly memes with mates or staying connected with family…? And of course, many of us wouldn’t be able to do our jobs successfully without all this tech at our disposal. In one sense, we are very lucky. But as with everything, benefits come at a cost and the key is moderation.
Too much screen-time can negatively impact both physical and mental health. Every device radiates an unnatural blue light that is intense enough to wreak all kinds of havoc with our eyes, brain and sleep. Especially, if you’re exposed to it near bedtime. But fear not, Low Cost Glasses now have a solution. Introducing our Blue Light Defence Lenses, a specially designed lens that reduces this pesky blue light and helps protect your vision, eye health and sleeping pattern.
Here’s 5 reasons why you need our Blue Light Defence Lenses in your life immediately:
- Say ‘NO!’ to eye strain.
Headaches, sore eyes that are plagued with puffiness or redness and blurry vision. If this sounds all too familiar then you’re in the right place. Our Blue Light Defence Lenses will help reduce any blue light wavelengths reaching your peepers and make screen-time a soothing experience.
- Say ‘YES!’ to a great night’s sleep
We know we shouldn’t, but who isn’t guilty of a last check of Instagram before shuteye. Or even worse, a quick peek of work emails at 11pm! Whilst we don’t encourage either practise we understand that changing a habit is hard and not always possible. Our Blue Light Defence Lenses will help reduce the blue light energizing your brain which then prevents melatonin, the sleep hormone from being produced.
- Say ‘NO!’ to macular degeneration
It doesn’t sound like much fun does it? And that’s because it isn’t. This is what happens when blue light sneaks through the natural filters of your eyes and causes damage to the retina and permanent vision loss in older age. Our Blue Light Defence coating depletes the amount allowed through.
- Say ‘YES!’ to a style upgrade
Blue light lenses have a gorgeous shimmery reflection that is instantly recognisable and has become almost a fashion accessory to those in the know. Our Blue Light Defence Lenses can be added to any one of our 1,300 styles and will immediately add a little pizzazz to your new glasses. Super stylish and even more important, super safe.
- Say ‘NO!’ to migraines
If you suffer from migraines, you will do ANYTHING to avoid them. It occurs due to muscular contraction in blood vessel of eyes, triggered by excessive glare, eye strain and lack of sleep all of which are a result of… yes you’ve guessed it, BLUE LIGHT.
So there you have it. And to make your next specs work as hard as possible to look after your eyes, just select the Blue Light Defence option as you go through the checkout for only £30 and say ‘toodle-pip’ to tired eyes and ‘bonjour’ to safe screen-time.
