Feeling like you spend a lot of time on digital devices?


Now that many of us are working from home, we tend to spend prolonged time indoors exposed to blue light¹ from the sun through windows, artificial lighting and screens which may be uncomfortable.

The intense changing light sources combined with air-conditioned room or uncorrected vision, may generate visual discomfort.

Why should I make no compromise on blue light¹ filtering?

Blue light¹ is emitted mainly by the sun, but also by a large number of LED (cold white LED lamps in particular) artificial light sources and digital tools. Nowadays, we spend more time using digital devices to work, learn and be entertained than we ever did before – something to bear in mind to select the right glasses and blue light¹ filtering solution.

Best practices when using digital devices

Take frequent breaks

Try to take 10-minute break every 2 hours, to give your eyes some rest.

Keep on blinking

Did you know your blink rate reduces significantly when you’re facing digital screens? Remind yourself to blink more by sticking a post-it note on your screen to help prevent dry eyes.

Position your screen right

Your eyes get tired quicker when you’re looking near than far. So before you start working, adjust your screen to be about an arm’s length away from you and tilt it slightly higher for more comfortable reading.

Get smart about your lenses

Relieve your eye strain coming from prolonged time on near vision activities, by switching to comfort-optimised Nikon ophthalmic lenses like Relaxsee NEO combined with blue light¹ filter technology. This way, you can relax your eyes while maintaining focus for both near and far.

Filter blue light¹

Use lenses equipped with Pure Blue UVTM light management solution to filter both UV and blue light¹ without compromising your aesthetics.

1. Blue light between 380nm to 500nm (with blue-violet light between 400 and 455nm as stated by ISO TR 20772:2018).
