We spend so much time using technological devices, even more than sleeping. When they become addictive, electronic devices can have an almost drug like effect on your brain. Although we can’t stop using technology, we can find a healthy solution.
In this article you will find out about:
- Harmful effects of technological devices
- Features that quality eyewear should have
- Benefits that quality eyewear should offers
- Who needs the most protection?
What are the harmful effects of technological devices?
Social media, emailing, texting and blogging occupy a large part of our day. But screens and smartphones, tablets and computers emit high-energy blue light, which can cause eyestrain, headaches, fatigue, blurred vision and dry eyes. It can also damage the retina and even lead to vision loss. Too much screen time can reduce brain function and, surprisingly, may alter your brain performance.
Blue light from electronic devices suppresses melatonin, a hormone that influences Circadian Rhythm- your natural biological clock. This blue light exposure signals our body to wake up, but when it comes at the wrong time at night, it throws up your sleep and stops your melatonin production. Studies show that lover level of melatonin could cause health problems, including diabetes and cancer.
When it comes to children, too much screen time affects their learning abilities. The problem is in oversaturation with high energy blue and UV light.
Features that quality eyewear should have.
1. UV and blue light -blocking treatment
By optimizing the quantity and quality of light transmitted through the lenses the eyewear should have the ability to reduce the excessive power density of the UV-blue part of sunlight or LED blue light, thereby protecting the structures of the eye.
In addition, some glasses, like for example, Hyprlight eyewear, ensures the spectral shift and increases the energy of favorable (green-red) wavelengths of the light by converting harmful wavelengths into optimal ones
2. Anti-scratch coating
Hydro and oleophobic coating: provides resistance to scratches and prolongs the lifespan of the lens. It has an easy to clean effect and an antistatic component that repels dust particles.
The Hard Coat (HC) layer provides additional protection against scratches and prolongs the life span of other layers.
3. Anti-reflective coating
Today's modern anti-reflective coatings can virtually eliminate the reflection of light from eyeglass lenses, allowing 99.5 percent of available light to pass through the lenses and enter the eye for good vision.
Hyprlight Eyewear has patented 8 ioncoat layers: In accordance with the Ioncoat K+ procedure, eight layers of material with different index levels are applied to the lenses in a vacuum. Ioncoat K+ reduces light reflex to less than 1%, resulting in better vision.
4. Fullerene C60 lens
For the first few minutes, a person wearing such glasses is surprised at the increase in image clarity and the emergence of an anti-stress (pacified) state.
The study of hormonal balance found that application of the fullerene light optimizes the content of serotonin (“happiness hormone”), dopamine (“pleasure hormone”), melatonin (a hormone responsible for the regulation of sleep) and cortisol (stress hormone), bringing them to the natural balance needed for optimal mental and physical functioning of the body.
Hyperlight Eyewear with revolutionary nanophotonic lenses transforms light so that it becomes ideally structured, hyper harmonized and perfectly compatible with our body’s biostructure. They are a high-tech nanophotonic generator of hyper harmonized light (hyperlight) with quantum properties.
Benefits that quality eyewear should offers
Although we can’t stop using technology, we can find a healthy solution. In order to be called a smart glasses, the quality eyewear should offers following:
- Protect eyes from UV rays
- Create a favourable light and colour range
- Reduce eye hypersensitivity to light
- Slow down the development of cataracts
- Prevent age-related degradation of retinal receptors
- Improve visual acuity
- Reduce the dispersion of light inside the eye
- Eliminate eye fatigue
- Increase concentration and operational memory
- Increase productivity and efficiency
- Help to make decisions faster and more efficiently
- Have a rejuvenating effect on the skin around the eyes
- Restore hormonal and psychological balance
- Improve mood and reduces stress
- Weaken anxiety, depression or aggression
- Weaken sleep disorders and reduce the effects of jet lag
- Regulate circadian rhythm
- Provide efficient working hours in front of electronic devices
Who needs the most protection?
The quality eyewear should be designed with everybody in mind. Weather at work, school, university or when relaxing in your spare time, eyewear should block and convert harmful UV and high-intensity blue light into the most comfortable wavelengths, so our eyes can function optimally.
Today children are glued to their electronic devices more than ever before, and constant excessive exposure to harmful artificial light emitted by the screens of these products can have a number of negative side effects. Parents should invest in their kids’ future by giving them the right protection now.
Finally, it is important to highlight the fact that we are biological beings, grew up under sunlight, which we are adjusted to. But, the spectrum of light that we are regularly exposed today has drastically changed. LED, neon and halogen lights are now everywhere, and therefore, protective glasses –especially indoors, are going to be increasingly more important to use in our work and daily lives.
