Phonetic Eye Wear Twitter Party

Do your eyes feel tired after working at your computer all day? Do you ever feel your eyes twitching? That was happening to me from all of the computer and screen use I have on a daily basis, until I found Phonetic Eye Wear at the #BlogHer Conference!

What Is Blue Light?

Computer screens, backlit devices and phones emit blue light.  To give you the technical break down of what it is, it is the violet blue portion of the electromagnetic spectrum with wavelengths between 380 nanometers (nm) to 500 nm in a scientific sense.  It is also referred to as High Energy Visible light (HEV).  You can find HEV in flourescent lights, LED lights, TV screens, laptops/computers, smartphones, and tablets.

Why is Blue Light Bad?

Not all blue light is bad, but lately it is being proven that when people are exposed to too much blue light in the evening and before bed, it disrupts your sleep.  It can also cause damage to your eyes called macular degeneration.  Macular degeneration is typically an age related condition.  But since we are now exposed to so much blue light, it is speeding up the process of this deterioration.  It also throws off our sleep cycle.

How To Protect Yourself?

Phonetic can help!  They offer glasses with clear, prescription quality lenses that contain a special coating that deflects a portion of the blue light, which reduces eyestrain and improves focus.  Phonetic lenses block approximately 35% of the light in the violet/blue spectrum (380nm to 500nm) and more than 50% of the light from 380nm to 450nm, which is the portion of the violet/blue spectrum with the highest energy content.

Would you like a chance to win a pair of these glasses?  Join our Twitter party taking place Tuesday, November

I do not, but have noticed my eyes are strained after being in front of the computer all day. Would love to give these a shot as I am in front of a computer screen at least 12 hours a day.

I has LASIK two years ago, but in my current job, I am starting to log more and more hours staring at not one but dual screens at the same time. I want to protect my investment in my vision but also help alleviate the concern that I am ruining them for work.

I do not wear glasses while working on the computer, but I spend the majority of my day staring at screens. I’ve often wondered if this could be the cause of my frequent headaches. I’m looking forward to this chat to learn more!

I wear glasses all day everyday. Unfortunately I do not have ones that help protect my eyes from blue light. Rsvp @mummadear

I currently wear my contacts instead of my glasses. I’ve noticed a recent change in my sleep habits after utilizing my computer more for work. I’m executed to learn more about Phonetic Eyewear.

No but I sometimes will get a migraine after I’ve used a computer for too long and want to see if glasses like these could help with that. My hubby has a pair from another company that he uses for work since he’s an IT technician

I do not. I have heard about them and I am super happy to hear about them tonight at the party. My hubby works in front of a computer all day and then comes home and games. So I can’t wait!
