Humans are not meant to stare at digital screens (whether laptops, monitors, phones, tablets, or TVs) all day long. Our eyes are at rest when we’re looking 20 feet away. In front of our computer, though, we're staring 18-24 inches away for long periods of time. This overworks the ciliary muscle in the back of our eye, which is constantly spasming back and forth to adjust to the close viewing.
As a result, many ophthalmologists, optometrists, and researchers point to the potential negative effects that computer screens have on our vision and health. This includes Digital Eye Strain (also known as Computer Vision Syndrome) - which encompasses a variety of symptoms like dry eyes, headaches, blurred vision, eye fatigue, and neck and back pain. Felix Gray lenses are specially designed to filter 50% of all and 90% of the most impactful ranges of Blue Light, while eliminating 99% of glare to combat these negative and uncomfortable effects.
