Even the kids can get eyestrain, eye fatigue, migraines, and dry eyes from computer, gaming and phone screens. The blue light emitted by screens reaches deeper into the eye and its cumulative effect can cause damage to the retina and we forget our kids are just as frequent with the screen time. Even if they don’t get much in your home, they are at friends or classrooms where laptops and computers are a learning source. Protecting their eyes from the blue light is just as important as wearing sunglasses to protect from UV rays.
But, the blue light protection glasses are ‘ugly’ and have a tint so your kid would never wear them! That is not the case with Pixel eyewear. Whether for you or your child, these glasses are clear and effective. Pixel Eyewear lenses filter 50% of blue light and up to 95% at the strongest wavelengths without the yellow tint.
According to the CDC, screen times have risen to six hours per day for kids ages 8 to 10 and nine hours per day for kids 11 to 14 years old. The kids glasses come in colors Sky Blue Crystal, Cotton Candy Pink, Indigo Blue Crystal, and neutral colors such as Chestnut Tortoise, Black, and Champagne Crystal. They are stylish enough for them to want to wear as they understand the importance of protecting their eyesight.
There comes a responsibility with having devices and not only should they be spending approved time, going only to approved sights, they should also protect their eyesight. My son understands this as part of his responsibility while at the computer or device screen.
