Anti Blue Light glasses are not what you might expect Snow Action’s original Action Man multi-sports gear tester Steve ‘Crazy’ Leeder to be writing up, but he also spends a lot of time on screens, like most of us.
As part of testing a bunch of Carve gear this winter – like the Reverb helmet (best under $100 – check it here) and Scope ski and MTB goggles – he also picked up a pair of their Anti Blue Light Glasses too and is an instant convert.
If I’m not riding bikes or sliding on skis or just doing some fun shit I’m in front of my computer and a phone trying to get all sorts of other jobs done so I can go and play heaps more.
A few weeks ago the rad peeps from @carve_adventure sent me these #bluelightglasess to see how they changed my life or at least my eyes and honestly things have been better since wearing them
My vision use to get pretty blurry after staring at my screens for a few hours and I would get headaches pretty hard core from trying to push past and focus on getting a bunch more work done. Since I’ve been wearing there blue light glasses I have definitely noticed less blurryness and I’m not getting just getting through my day but I think I’m still more focused on what’s going on and not as tired or strained.
My girlfriend asked me if I wear them ’cause they help my eyes or cause I think I look cool..
To be honest I do think that they do all the things I have just said, but I kinda think that I wear them more because they look cool. Sorry if this makes me sound like a slave to fashion, but if it takes some cool looking sunnies to make my eyes work better and my brain not hurt as much I’m all for it.
So if you don’t already wear normal glasses you should check out the many different styles of Blue Light Glasses that Carve offer. You will be more awesome for wearing them.
This is the lowdown on them from Carve:
ANTI BLUE LIGHT GLASSES
Blue light glasses are specifically made to protect your eyes from the effects of blue light that is emitted from commonly used electronic screens, such as your computer, phone, or tablet. The best way to combat the annoyances and potential harmful effects of blue light is by using the convenience of anti blue light glasses. Considering anti blue light glasses may be the answer to keeping your eyes fresh and healthy, encouraging a calmer demeanor, and improving sleep habits.
THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF BLUE LIGHT
When blue light is emitted from your electronic screens, it directly affects your eyes, and may result in headaches and irritability. You may not realize it, but shielding yourself from blue light can have a major positive impact on your health, especially over an extended period of time. Anti blue light glasses can help minimize the negative effects of blue light. Eye fatigue and migraine headaches are both common with increased exposure to blue light. Over time, your eyes will become tired, strained, and blurry. With the continued daily usage of screened devices, there is the potential for heightened physical discomfort or pain after or during your screen sessions. The blue light from your devices can trigger mood changes and an overall decrease in functionality due to blue light effects. Anti blue light glasses are an extremely safe and easy way to combat the blue light emitted from your devices.
PROTECTING YOUR EYES DURING SCREEN TIME
Electronic devices have become a part of our lives, whether it is for work or play, screen time is often an everyday occurrence. Anti blue light glasses allow your eyes to be protected from the blue light. It is as easy as simply putting the glasses on and taking them off, just like sunglasses. You owe it to your eyes to keep them protected while working, playing, or relaxing with a screen in front of you. Whether it is for work, school, down time, or all of the above, anti blue light glasses will help you stay healthy, both physically and mentally.
