You already know how important it is to protect your skin and your eyes from the sun’s damaging (and wrinkle-accelerating) rays. But aside from possibly contributing to premature fine lines and damaged retinas courtesy of the sun, there’s a lesser-known enemy to take into account: High Energy Visible Light (HEV light). Nowadays, many of us spend multiple hours a day in front of our screen, whether you’re browsing social media on your phone or typing away for work on your laptop. If you wear prescription eyeglasses, you probably are already familiar with the eye strain and headaches that can arise from staring at screens for prolonged periods, but the blue light emitted from our devices and electronics can make matters much, much worse.

Recent research suggests that the blue light emitted from our cell phones, computer screens, and certain light bulbs is also damaging to our health in a multitude of ways, from interrupting our circadian rhythms to triggering headaches.

Now, we’re clearly not suggesting that you quit your phone and computer cold-turkey or put in your two weeks notice in the name of avoiding this inevitable side effects, but making sure to keep your eyes protected when you’re indoors and online is evidently, equally as paramount of a consideration as protecting your skin from the sun’s UV rays. Fortunately, it’s never been easier to find blue light shielding glasses to ease the strain—without looking like a total nerd.
