Being a person that wears glasses and contact lenses, protecting?my eyes is extremely important to me. This sponsored post is a part of the campaign ?Protecting America's Eyes? by Reticare in order to inform U.S. citizens about the importance of eye protection from device screens. The opinions expressed in this post are entirely my own. Device screens?can be hard on your eyes so today, I'm going to share how you can protect your eyes during screen time.
My whole family spends a lot of time staring at screens. Between smartphones, tabletsandcomputers, we've got an awful lot of devices in our house and they're being used pretty often. In my line of work, I'm almost always looking at either my smartphone, tablet or computer screen and?it's definitely affected me. In fact, my eyes started to get so dry that I had to stop wearing my contact lenses and switch to my glasses during my working hours! But luckily for all of us, Reticare can help.
How can Reticare protect your eyes?
- High energy light from device screens is naturally absorbed through Reticare's eye protector screens.
- Different levels of protection are provided based on the amount of time spent in front of the screen, and also based on the users age.
- Reticare's screens protect your eyes from 3 risks such as sleep disorders, Computer Vision Syndrome and Retina Damage.
Did you know that the percentage of Americans that use digital devices for five hours or more each day is 60% and that 70% of us use two or more devices at a time? Shocking, I know! Then it really shouldn't be a shocker that 65% of us suffer from eye strains like neck/shoulder/back pain, eye strain, headache, blurred vision, and dry eyes; all related to glaring at digital devices all day!
Natural eye lens protection doesn't fully develop until we reach 25 years of age, so children are more susceptible to eye damage from overexposure to high-energy light. The most important risk of high-energy light is retina damage which can onset Glaucoma, Cataracts and Macular Degeneration. The retina cells can't recover once they die so it's important to protect our eyes, and Reticare can help keep our eyes healthy.
Applying Reticare eye and screen protectors is super easy and the package includes everything that you will need, along with complete application instructions.
Now that back to school season is upon us, there's no better time than the present to start protecting our families' eyes from high-energy light.
How many hours do you spend starting at a screen each day?
