Our day-to-day lives are intertwined with digital devices. Whether you’re checking social media on your phone or working on the computer, reading on your Kindle, or spending extended time under fluorescent and LED lighting, our exposure to blue light is increasing exponentially.

Experiencing eye strain, dry eyes, and even blurriness can be signs of digital fatigue. Lenses that filter blue light can help to relieve these symptoms. Learn more about blue light protection and how to relieve digital fatigue symptoms over on the blog.
