With a majority of public schools closing for at least a month (with some for the remainder of the school year like ours here in Blackduck), students will be resorting to online courses during this time frame as well as playing on their digital devices even more so than usual to pass the time. As we spend hours looking at screens, the eye muscles that focus on near objects get tired. High-energy blue light also reduces contrast, therefore, causing our eyes to constantly adjust focus and the eye muscles to get more overworked. This can cause short-term effects of digital eye strain, including headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, eye strain, and eye fatigue, and long term effects on overall eye health. I have experienced all of these, and am nervous my son will begin to as well.
Many people are unaware of the solutions available to protect their eyes from blue light and digital eye strain. Introducing Viteyes Blue Light Defender: made specifically to protect the eyes against the overuse of digital screens as well as the sun. Viteyes Blue Light Defender is formulated with Lutein and Zeaxanthin, which are the only natural defenses our eyes have against the harmful effects of blue light. This premium formula also includes bilberry for added eye health benefits and Astaxanthin to help relieve tired and strained eyes. Viteyes Blue Light Defender is available as a gummy as well in capsule form and can be used by those 12+ to adults. A good daily vitamin to add to your and your children's routines.
