Now that many of us are working from home, we tend to spend prolonged time indoors exposed to blue light¹ from the sun, 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 a 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 fron you and tilt it slightly higher for more comfortable reading.
Get smart about your lenses
Relieve your eye strain by switching to protective and comfort-optimised Nikon lenses like Home&Office NEO combined with Nikon blue light filter technology. This way, you can relax your eyes while maintaining focus for both near and far.
Filter blue light¹
Protect your eyesight from harmful blue light using protective lenses equipped with Nikon SeeCoat™ Blue coating.
