Computer Glasses For Kids, Are They Necessary?

In this digital age, our children have unprecedented access to digital devices, for educational, entertainment, and social purposes. 

It is considered that American 8 to 12 year-olds tend to spend, on average, 4 hours and 44 minutes each day in front of digital screens, and that’s not including the time at school or doing homework. [1] 

Overexposure to blue light can carry some side effects that we can easily prevent with Ozray's computer glasses for kids. Here’s how they work!

 

Kids’ blue light glasses

Our kids love technology (who doesn’t!), and sometimes it can be an impossible mission to limit their screen time. Blue light glasses for kids are a great way to ensure that our children’s eyes are protected at all times.

At Ozray, we have carefully designed stylish computer glasses for kids with organic CR-39 high-quality lenses that block 100% of the blue light under 410nm and 45% of the blue light on the 410nm-450nm spectrum.

The frames are super-light to ensure comfort, with flexible temples that can adapt to any type of face shape and a rubberized texture that allows for a better grip on the nose and ears. 

 

Does my kid need blue light glasses?

The risk of suffering from side effects known as Computer Vision Syndrome or Digital Eye Strain can be higher in kids because their eyes have not yet developed the protective pigments that are necessary to filter out the damaging blue light that comes from excessive digital screen exposure. 

As useful as digital devices can be (for both kids and parents alike), the blue light that is emitted from the screens can have a range of potentially detrimental effects on our kid’s vision, particularly if they are exposed to the blue light for extended periods. That’s why your kid can benefit from blue light glasses. 

Blue light glasses are an easy and stylish way to protect our children while they have fun. 

 

What are the effects of blue light on our kids?

Too much screen time can put a strain on our kids’ eyes, which can potentially lead to them experiencing blurred vision, dry eyes, headaches, or even migraines. 

On top of that, as parents, we know how important a restful night’s sleep is for our children’s development (and for our sanity as well). However, artificial blue light can also alter our children’s circadian rhythms (their internal body clock), by increasing their alertness level at bedtime. 

Some of the common signs of poor quality sleep, due to overexposure to artificial blue light at night, are fatigue and back and shoulder aches.  

If your kid is experiencing any or all of the above symptoms, they would likely benefit from a reduction of digital device exposure. Easier said than done! It is becoming more and more common for schools to require that kids have their own digital devices for use both in the classroom and at home for completing homework, so blue light glasses are the perfect solution! 

Purposely built for kids’ eyes, our computer glasses filter out a percentage of the blue light that is emitted from digital screens, protecting their eyes and allowing them to continue using their digital devices without experiencing the potential side effects.

We believe in the benefits of more conscious consumption of technology!
