Spending a lot of time in front of your computer or smartphone, on a daily basis? Do you sometimes feel like your eyes are getting tired, your vision blurred or feel pain in your neck and shoulders? You might suffer from eye strain, and you’re not the only one.
Indeed, we nowadays spend so much time on screens, whether it’s for work or entertainment. And these screens, which include smartphones, televisions, tablets, screen monitors or laptops, all emit a blue light which has an energy level below 430nm. This may cause digitally-induced eye strain with symptoms including:
Dry, red and irritated eyes
Neck and shoulder pain
On top of these symptoms, blue light helps regulate circadian rhythms, which are responsible for the body’s waking and sleeping cycles. So, being exposed to blue light late at night might disrupt the sleep cycle and lead to insomnia or fatigue.
Being too exposed to blue light can result in adverse and sometimes serious vision issues so it is better to be safe than sorry!
Which is why, in order to help alleviate these symptoms, Carolina Lemke Berlin, an international eyewear brand which recently opened a flagship store in World Square, is offering Blue Guardian lenses. These lenses help block the high-energy blue light from entering the eye and aid in the prevention of all harmful UVA and UVB energies.
And guess what? Carolina Lemke is offering a free upgrade to these blue light lenses for every pair of prescription glasses purchased if you show their helpful staff this article. Their range of prescription glasses includes so many different designs and colours that you inevitably will find the ones for you.
The Blue Guardian lenses upgrade offer is only available in Carolina Lemke Berlin’s flagship World Square store and – only redeemable upon presentation of this article. All major health funds accepted. This offer is valid until 30 April, 2020, so be quick!
