Vizioeye has announced the launch of a mass-market eyewear collection designed specifically to combat digital device-related eye fatigue.
Vizioeye Anti blue light glasses created to help thwart dry and irritated eyes, blurred vision, eye strain and other symptoms associated with technology use.
According to The Vision Council’s 2016 report Eyes Overexposed: The Digital Device Dilemma, one in 10 people spend at least three-quarters of their waking hours on a digital device. Sixty-five percent of Americans experience digital eye strain.
Additionally, studies show humans blink half to one-third as often as usual while using computers and other digital devices for work or play, reports the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
The first generation to be referred to as digital natives, millennials prefer getting their news from smartphones, computers and tablets.
Researchers at The Vision Council discovered that nearly 90 percent of people in their 20s use two or more devices simultaneously, as well as check their devices in the hour before falling asleep; 73 percent of them report symptoms of digital eye strain.
Yet one-third of Americans who are aware of the dangers of that stress still don’t take precautions to protect their eyes, or even bring up the subject with their eye-care provider, according to The Vision Council.
