When I say majority, I seriously mean it. At least 8 hours a day, but probably closer to 10. That’s a lot of screen time, and a lot of strain on my eyes. Even if you don’t spend the majority of your day looking at a screen eye strain is a real thing in our culture. We are glued to our phones, computers, or TV. There is blue light surrounding us.

My eyestrain story is a long one, and it affects me more than most people. I’ve suffered from headaches and migraines for a few years now, and they started when I entered the design program at my school. While some of my headaches are stress related, a lot of them come from staring at a screen for long periods of time. I usually end my day with a headache, and with my eyes feeing tired and strained.

Enter Phonetic Eyewear…a company that offers glasses with clear, prescription quality lenses that have a special coating to deflect a portion of unwanted blue light. Now, I don’t need prescription glasses. I have really great vision. Phonetic Eyewear is really great because they offer lenses that you can have fit to your prescription, reading glasses, and non prescription glasses. I chose to receive the non prescription glasses in the Robin frames and trust me when I say I had such a hard time picking what frames I wanted. They have soooo many cute pairs!

Now onto the part about how they work.

The glasses contain a special coating that deflects a portion of the blue light. You can visually see this happening in the photos above. The blue hue you see on the lenses in the pictures is actually the blue light that is being reflected off the glasses. This reflection only appears when the glasses are working and reflecting the blue light. So if there is no light needed to be filtered the glasses look like clear lenses.  No other colors are filtered thought the glass, just the blue light, so everything you see is still sharp and clear.

The best way I can think of to describe the glasses tone change is that it is similar to turning on the “night shift” mode on your iPhone. Go ahead and try that right now. Did ya try it? See how the colors on your screen go from blue to a more yellow or warmer tones? That’s very similar to what the glasses do to the world around you. Everything has a warmer tone to it. The first day wearing the glasses I had to get used to the change, but after the first day I don’t even notice it anymore.

For my own uses these glasses work really well. I wear them while at work at my day job, or working on blog content. I can usually wear them while working on any design work too. The only catch is that I can’t wear them while working with anything that involves the color mattering. So when I am working on editing photos, or editing a watercolor card I have to remove the glasses so that the colors aren’t affected and I can see them just as anyone else would. Being that this is such a small portion of my time in front of a computer it really isn’t a big deal to me.

Overall, I am totally in love with Phonetic Eyewear! So much so that in collaboration with their company we are giving away a pair of glasses! If you don’t want to wait a week to see if you’ve won you can use MOO10 for 10% off your order. Good luck!

    This sounds like something I could use! I work in an IT environment so I’m looking at screens all day (4 of them even) and I’m also a blogger and I love watching movies so I spent most of my time looking at screens.. I get really bad migraines too so hopefully this will help!

    Wow! I had no idea something like this existed! This is perfect. I work all day in front of a computer for a nonprofit, and I am a proofreader, so I definitely feel my eyes straining. I don’t want to ruin my vision. I’d get the Robin in tortoise! Thanks so much!
