As remote workers, we benefit from a whole lot of perks - location independence, choosing our own work hours, working from the beach with a margarita in hand, the list goes on!
To maintain our lifestyle, a good chunk of our days are spent in front of the screen. These magical screens allow us to bring in $$$ (margarita money), but they also bring in something called blue light. When our eyes aren’t protected against this overexposure, the light can have short-term, and longer-term negative effects.
WHAT’S BLUE LIGHTS DEAL?
Blue light is a high-energy visible light, which can be produced from natural and artificial sources alike. *Hint: the natural ones, like the sun, have positive effects, like mood-boosting and circadian rhythm regulating. The artificial ones like our digital devices? Not so much.
Studies have shown us that long exposure to blue light can hold a number of not-so-wonderful effects on our eyeballs, and our bodies.
Short-term, this means:
Long-term, exposure could lead to cell damage in the retina and increase macular degeneration - which in turn can lead to loss of your central vision.
Blue light is what tells us to get alert, wake up and be up & at ‘em! So if you’re staring into your screen all day and night - that’s going to deplete your production of melatonin, tricking your body into thinking you should still be alert when you’re ready to snooze. A tragic case of Netflix and no-chill.
ARE BLUE LIGHT GLASSES WORTH IT?
In our opinion and our family of remote workers, YES 100%. Enjoy maximising your productivity with tired and blurry eyes no more!
With Franc & Iris specs, our remote worker family have told us they are able to focus on getting more stuff done, and look cute whilst doing it.
You can also say good riddance to the headaches and interrupted sleep! Well, that is depending on your average margarita intake ;)
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
Our suggestion - be kind to your eyes with some Franc & Iris specs.
Our stylish frames are so lightweight you’ll rock them for a whole 10-hour work sesh and forget you’ve even got them on!
SAVE YOUR EYES.
