The Best Blue Light Glasses for Kids
Kids Blue Light Glasses
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, an American nonprofit focused on major healthcare issues, the average screen time for kids ages 8-18 is about 7.5 hours a day. Exposure to blue light emitted by these screens could potentially cause or worsen symptoms of insomnia, migraine headaches, eye strain, and other health issues. As technology becomes more ingrained in our society, there are tools that can help minimize or eliminate eye health risks, such as kids' blue light glasses.
Kids Computer Glasses
Kids spend time in front of computer screens for a number of reasons including entertainment, reading, and online learning. When your child is using a screen without the proper protection, their eye health could be at risk. That’s where kids' blue light glasses come in. Blue light blocking glasses for kids can block out harmful blue light rays emitted by LED screens so you won’t have to worry about blue light affecting your kid’s sleep schedule or overall health.
zFORT® blue blocking technology blocks blue light waves between 380nm and 500 nm. When you choose kids blue light glasses with zFORT® lenses, you could help eliminate glare, improve sleep, and reduce eye strain and headaches for your child. What’s great about zFORT® is that it can be added onto any kids frames when you order with Vision Direct! So, whether your child has prescription glasses or you are going with plano lenses, you can add zFORT® blue light blockers at checkout to turn any glasses into kids blue light glasses.
Choosing the Best Kids Computer Glasses
Sometimes when the options are endless, it can be hard to choose what frames to get for your little one. When purchasing a new pair of frames that they will use as kids computer glasses, the most important thing to consider is what your child will be using their glasses for. Here is a general guide below to help you get started to find your perfect pair of kids blue light glasses.
1.) Entertainment: If your child spends most of their time in front of the screen for entertainment, then don’t be afraid to make protecting their eye health part of the fun!
