At Springfield Opticians, we offer comprehensive eye care at all three of our locations. Blue light lenses are a common option for our patients looking to improve their vision. One of our optometrists at our offices in Holmes, Springfield, and Chadds Ford can fit you with a pair of blue light glasses today.
What is Blue Light?
Blue light is a type of electromagnetic radiation that is emitted from digital screens, such as computer monitors, laptops, and smartphones. This type of light has a shorter wavelength than other colors in the visible light spectrum. Because of this, blue light can penetrate the eye more deeply than other colors. Now more than ever, people rely on electronic devices to complete work and blue light lenses can make using them more comfortable.
The Benefits of Blue Light Lenses
Many benefits come with wearing blue light lenses. For one, they can help reduce eye fatigue and strain. If you find yourself getting headaches or your eyes feel tired after looking at a screen for too long, blue light lenses may be able to help. In addition, blue light lenses can help your eyes stay hydrated and you won't suffer from dry eyes as much.
How to Get Blue Light Lenses
If you're interested in getting blue light lenses, the first step is to schedule an appointment with an eye doctor from our team. During your visit, we will ask about your symptoms and concerns. We will also conduct a comprehensive eye exam to ensure that blue light lenses are the proper option based on your symptoms. Sometimes, there can be various causes of certain eye health issues, so we can rule out any serious complications.
Are Blue Light Lenses Prescribed?
You do not need a prescription from an optometrist to get blue light lenses. However, If you already have glasses and would like to purchase a new pair, we can add a blue light filter to the corrective lenses. We are happy to discuss the various options that are available when you are choosing corrective lenses.
