FAQ Blue Light & Glare
Why is staring at screens bad for us?
Humans are not meant to stare at digital screens like laptops, monitors, phones, and tv, all day long. In front of our computer, though, we’re staring 18-24 inches away for long periods of time. This could overwork the ciliary muscle in the back of our eye, constantly spasming back and forth to adjust to the close viewing.
As a result, many ophthalmologists, optometrists, and researchers point to the potential negative effects that computer screens could have on our vision and health. This includes Digital Eye Strain (also known as Computer Vision Syndrome) – which may encompass various symptoms like dry eyes, headaches, blurred vision, eye fatigue, and neck and back pain. muunel lenses are specially designed to filter 50% of all and almost 100% of the most impactful ranges of Blue Light while eliminating 99% of glare to help combat these negative and uncomfortable effects.
Do Muunel blue light lenses reduce glare?
Our blue light lenses have a premium anti-glare coating to eliminate 99% of glare, optimizing our visual acuity.
Glare can be a particularly distracting and straining problem at night. It’s one of the reasons looking at screens in dark settings is even harder on the eye. Because our lenses eliminate 99% of glare and blue light, our glasses may also assist with driving at night when the glare from other cars and surrounding lights are intensified.
Ultimately, muunel anti-glare coating aims to provide sharper optics and relaxed eyes. We are dedicated to making people’s lives happier in front of the screen!
What is the problem with being exposed to blue light?
Blue Light has the highest energy wavelengths on the visible light spectrum. Similar to how UV-light overexposure harms our skin, Blue-Light overexposure may lead to eye discomfort and irritation (eye strain, dry eyes, eye fatigue, blurred vision, and headaches).
Blue Light may also suppress melatonin secretion – the neurotransmitter that tells our minds and bodies to power off at night – which is why it could be harder to fall asleep after spending hours in front of our screens every day.
Muunel blue light lenses are designed to filter Blue Light – specifically, the highest energy wavelengths in the 380-440 nm range. Still interested in learning more? Head here
