Maximizing Your Blue Light Protection: When Should You Wear Zenni’s Blokz?

Protecting your eyes from potentially harmful blue light has never been more critical. In the age of digital devices, we are constantly exposed to blue light from various sources, including our smartphones, laptops, and even LED lighting. Zenni offers a suite of Blokz lenses designed to shield your eyes from potentially harmful blue light for different scenarios. So, when should you wear Blokz? Let’s explore.

Scenario 1: While Using Digital Devices

Most of us spend a considerable amount of time staring at screens, whether for work or leisure. These digital screens emit a high amount of HEV blue light that may cause eyestrain, fatigue, and even disrupt your sleep cycle. Regardless of whether you wear prescription eyewear or non-prescription, Zenni Blokz can help protect your eyes during prolonged digital use.

At Work During Daytime: Especially for those who have desk jobs, it’s essential to protect your eyes. Swap your regular glasses with clear Blokz lenses.

During Leisure at Nighttime: Whether you’re gaming, watching TV, or scrolling through your phone, Zenni’s yellow Blokz Plus lenses can be added to activate night mode on your glasses.

Scenario 2: In Indoor Lighting

It’s not just digital devices; even LED and fluorescent lights emit blue light. If you spend a considerable amount of time indoors under artificial lighting, clear Blokz lenses can be beneficial.

Scenario 3: For Children

Children today are exposed to digital screens from a very young age. Blokz Trivex lenses are both impact resistant and have blue light protection. Blokz Trivex lenses can be added to a wide variety of children’s glasses, ensuring their eyes stay protected.

Pro Tip: Regular Eye Exams

While Blokz provides excellent protection against blue light, it is crucial not to forego regular eye exams. These exams allow early detection of any vision problems, ensuring you can continue enjoying clear vision. Overall, while the digital age brings countless conveniences, it also comes with its own set of challenges – one of which is increased exposure to potentially harmful blue light. Understanding the importance of eye protection in the digital age, Zenni offers a variety of blue light lens options, including clear Blokz, Blokz Plus, and Blokz Trivex for kids to ensure everyone has access to quality, affordable eyewear that protects their eyes.
