With the rise of technology and digital screens, the average American spends almost 11 hours a day looking at a screen (Nielson). Just think of how many people have desk jobs. They are typically looking at a computer screen for 6-8 hours a day, and that doesn’t even include when they are on their phones or watching TV in their free time.

This trend has risen exponentially over the past year and finally broke into the promo world. It’s time you learn exactly why they are so popular, so you can gift your employees the trendiest health & wellness gift that’s out there.

So what exactly is blue light?

Blue light is a color in the visible light spectrum that can be seen by the human eye. It is one of the shortest and highest-energy wavelengths.

Blue light can be found all around us. It’s in the sun, digital screens, electronic devices, fluorescent/LED lighting, and more.

How does it affect us?

Blue light actually isn’t always bad for us. It boosts alertness, helps memory and cognitive function and elevates your mood. However, too much exposure to blue light, especially artificial blue light, can have harmful affects on your body.

Digital eyestrain is the most common effect of blue light.  The symptoms include sore, tired, or itchy eyes; watery or dry eyes; blurred or double vision; headaches; increased sensitivity to light; and difficulty concentrating.

Gift your employees these wellness glasses and watch their productivity rise. They make an exceptionally good desk item, since that’s where they’re needed the most!

How do blue light glasses work?

The blue light glasses filter, absorb, or block blue light, and in some cases, UV light, from getting through and harming your eyes.
