Disclaimer: I received these glasses from Phonetic Eyewear in exchange for an honest review.
I can deal with the countless hours spent in front of a computer screen. the multiple hours a day on my phone or tablet, even the cracks about being ‘a typical millennial’, but not with digital eye strain.
‘Is that a real thing?’ – my mom when I told her about it. Digital eye strain is a real thing and it’s probably more serious than you think. In short, digital eyes train can cause headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, neck and shoulder pain. Read more about it here.
Phonetic Eyewear specializes in computer eyewear. Their glasses filter out the blue light emitted by computer screens and are über stylish.
The Shannon frames in tortoise shell are the ones that caught my eye (tortoise shell is so classic to me) and I LOVE them! They come in a soft neoprene case, a cleansing cloth and a write up of how to care for them and some useful facts.
The first time I wore them, I did get a tiny headache, but the next day (and the second time I used them) I was totally fine.
After about a week of use I noticed that pretty much all the symptoms associated with computer vision syndrome were gone.
I will say that even though we spend the whole time on the computer in my media design class, I don’t wear them. We spend the majority of the time on Photoshop/Illustrator working with colors and photos and these glasses give off the slightest yellow tinge so the colors don’t look right.
But in my other class, I take notes upon notes on my ipad so I wear them there. These are great for writing!
As for the aesthetic qualities (come on that’s what you really want to know) I think they make me look chic and professional. Someone in my class said that I looked like a sexy librarian… umm…thanks I guess?
