Barner are in the process of creating glasses that could protect your eyes from the harmful blue light emitted from electronic device screens that we use on a daily basis. They’ve collaborated with one of the leading producers of lenses in the world, so the glass should be great quality and may reduce dry eye symptoms.
In our post, Devices and Dry Eyes we explain how damaging our constant daily use of screens are on our eyes and is a leading cause of Dry Eye Syndrome. There is even a new phenomenon, Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). This presents serious symptoms such as dry eyes, headaches, migraines, dizziness, blurred vision, retinal damage and even sleep disruption patterns.
So with all of this in mind, Barner are creating glasses to reduce the impact of blue light on our eyes. It should reduce eye strain and visual stress, as well as improving sleep by increasing melatonin production. Not only should they help your eyes, they look very stylish too!
It’s also worth noting that Barner are still in the initial stages of their design, and they haven’t released any research as to how their glasses protect eyes from blue light yet.
They do however have a kickstarter page where you can enter your details and find out more about their glasses.
