I spend a ridiculous amount of time working on my computer and phone. As a full time online student, social media marketer, and graphic designer— I live on screens. Recently, I really started to complain about my eyes hurting. At the end of the day they were red and I could barely look at the TV. I was also suffering from headaches and overall my head was feeling foggy and strained. Rasmus looked into getting me some gamer 🎮 glasses to protect my eyes (so sweet ☺️)! And he stumbled upon Spektrum.
“Most of us spend the majority of our waking hours staring at a digital screen. Studies suggest that 60% of people spend more than 6 hours a day in front of a digital device.” (Blue Light Exposed, 2019)
I have had a lot of brands reach out to me to partner, and this is the first company I truly believe in. I am only going to promote product on here that I've tested and trust. Which is why I am happy to announce that I am partnering with Spektrum Glasses. I've been using these glasses for some time now and here are the benefits I’ve found:
No red eyes 🚫
No headaches 🚫
My eyes don’t hurt 🚫
And I'm falling asleep much faster
“Most of us spend the majority of our waking hours staring at digital screen, whether it's the computer at work, our personal cell phone, playing a video game, or just relaxing and watching TV. Digital eyestrain is a new term used to describe the conditions resulting from the use of today's popular electronic gadgets.
Digital eyestrain is a medical issue with serious symptoms that can affect learning and work productivity. Symptoms of digital eyestrain, or computer vision syndrome, include blurry vision, difficulty focusing, dry and irritated eyes, headaches, neck and back pain. Digital eyestrain has overtaken carpal-tunnel syndrome as the number one computer-related complaint.” (Blue Light Exposed, 2019)
I am so impressed with these glasses! If you spend a lot of time on screens the blue light could be damaging your eyes or your sleep patterns. These glasses block the blue light 💡 and keep your eyes safe.

According to Blue Light Exposed,
“Blue light waves are the among the shortest, highest energy wavelengths in the visible light spectrum. Because they are shorter, these "Blue" or High Energy Visible (HEV) wavelengths flicker more easily than longer, weaker wavelengths. This kind of flickering creates a glare that can reduce visual contrast and affect sharpness and clarity.
This flickering and glaring may be one of the reasons for eyestrain, headaches, physical and mental fatigue caused by many hours sitting in front of a computer screen or other electronic device.
Our eyes' natural filters do not provide sufficient protection against blue light rays from the sun, let alone the blue light emanating from these devices or from blue light emitted from fluorescent-light tubes. Prolonged exposure to blue light may cause retinal damage and contribute to age-related macular degeneration, which can lead to loss of vision.” (Blue Light Exposed, 2019)
