Screen time has increased dramatically in recent years with the widespread use of smartphones, laptops, and other digital devices. This increase in screen time has resulted in changes in the eyewear and optical industry.

With the demand for eye protection from blue light emitted from digital screens skyrocketing, we at Hannam Optical Inc. want to introduce you to some of the developments in the optical space. In this blog, we will discuss the impact of increased screen time on the eyewear and optical industry, including eye protection from blue light and the latest technologies available.

Eye protection from blue light

Blue light emitted from digital screens can cause eye strain, headaches, and disrupted sleep patterns. As a result, many consumers are looking for eyewear that provides protection from blue light. The eyewear and optical industries have responded by offering lenses that block or filter out blue light. This has led to a surge in demand for blue light-blocking glasses, particularly among those who spend a lot of time looking at digital screens, either for work or simply to pass the time.

Technologies available

The industry has responded to increased screen time by introducing new technologies. For example, many eyewear companies now offer lenses with an anti-reflective coating that reduces glare from digital screens. Additionally, some companies offer adjustable focus lenses that can be adjusted to the individual's specific needs, allowing for comfortable viewing of digital screens at a distance.

At Hannam Optical Inc., we understand the importance of protecting your eyes from blue light and are proud to offer a range of products to help you do just that. Whether you're looking for blue light-blocking glasses or lenses with an anti-reflective coating, we have a solution for you.
