With all of us spending a considerable amount of time in front of screens whether it be the computer, smartphones or TV, it is undeniable that are our eyes are practically glued to screens on a daily basis . With that comes our exposure to Blue light that emanates from these screens and can have some negative effects on our retinas, cause migraines, eyestrain or insomnia. Being a light sleeper myself and spending most of my time on my laptop or tablet before going to bed is not recommended. Aware of the negative effect, purchasing a pair blue light filter glasses was inevitable but not at all costly. When you type blue light filter glasses your options are quite horrendous, and I didn’t want to end up looking like a weirdo either. Thankfully when in Paris and walking in the Colette store, I discovered the Edie & Watson glasses collection which protect your eyes from blue light. Not only do they protect your eyes but their collection is very cool. There are different style frames and colours to choose from that all come in a nicely packaged cardboard box and a grey fabric pouch to put your glasses away. But frankly you will want to wear them on a more permanent basis as they just look good. Don’t be fooled by the name the company is French. Price: 45 euros
TRD: I have so many glasses but just 1 set of eyes!
Did you know: There is a concern from eye carers that the added blue light from screens such as the computer, smartphones and tv might increase a person’s risk of macular degeneration later in life.
