If you work an office job, chances are you’re probably spending a majority of your eight-hour workday in front of computer. Even on your lunch break I’ll bet you take at least a glance at your phone. Point is, we spend a lot of time staring at blue screens whether large or small. I’m completely guilty of it.
Even though I’ve only been working a full-time office job for a little less than two years, I can already feel the negative impact it has been having on my health. I’m a graphic designer for a marketing agency, and that means my eyes are glued to the screen (and my butt glued to the computer chair) for 8+ hours a day. Luckily, doing a little bit of yoga every morning and walking my dog helps the body aches, but it wasn’t helping the massive headaches and eye fatigue I was feeling at the end of each and every day.
I was scrolling through Pinterest one night and saw an ad for digital screen protection glasses. Normally I have a strong distrust of advertising, but I was feeling desperate. Maybe I could finally put an end to those after-work headaches. I decided to click on it and it took me to a site called EyeBuyDirect.
I was a little overwhelmed because they had so many different styles, many of which were surprisingly affordable. I picked up this non-prescription pair in size XS for about $38. (I think they were having a sale. Plus I used a coupon. Always ALWAYS check for coupons!)
The shipping process was a little slow, but they mentioned it could take up to 14 days to ship. It took almost two and a half weeks from the date I ordered to the day they arrived. This was a bummer, but mostly because I couldn’t wait to try them out!
They came beautifully packaged in a brown box and inside a light blue cloth bag. The bag is perfect for storing them on your desk when you’re not using them. At first glance I thought they looked a bit small, almost like kids’ glasses, but they actually fit perfectly! They are a great size for my small and narrow face.
Aside from them looking great, I’m sure you’re wondering if they actually work. The short answer is yes.
If you don’t normally wear glasses (like me), it will be a bit of an adjustment to wear them. The lenses do have a slight magnification to make text easier to read, so I don’t recommend wearing them for any reason other than to look at your screen. It might be slight, but you’ll definitely the notice magnification once you start walking around.
When looking through the lenses, I noticed that everything seemed to have a yellow-ish tint. The yellow helps counter the blue light, but it will make colors look a bit off. Since I’m a designer and color is a very important part of my job, I just take them off whenever I need to fix anything color-related. You will also notice that when light hits the lenses, it gives a purple reflection. Pretty cool!
I’ve been wearing these every day since I got them (10 full days to be exact!), and I’ve really noticed a difference! My eyes don’t feel as tired at the end of my workday, and I haven’t gotten a single headache! I am over the moon about these glasses and what they have done for me. I guess I’ve also discovered that Pinterest advertising works!
I should note that even though I got non-prescription glasses, they do make prescription Eyezen lenses. Regardless of what you’re in the market for, I hope you found this review helpful!
Have you tried Eyezen lenses? What do you think of them? Have they helped you at all? Let me know in the comments!
