About The Use Of Anti-radiation Glasses?
Hello, nice to meet you. R nI didn’t take long to get your anti-radiation glasses. But my brother forgot to ask what are these glasses used for. I want to ask, are there two kinds of anti-radiation glasses (anti-solar UV radiation or computer / cellphone anti-radiation blue light)? Or the anti-radiation glasses definitely have 2 functions above? R nThank you for your attention r nI am waiting for the answer, thank you. R nGreetings

Radiation, especially from the sun's ultraviolet rays, is known to have various adverse effects on eye health. Excessive exposure to radiation to your eyes can make your eyes red, more sensitive to light, watery, and feel uncomfortable (lumpy, itchy, sore). Furthermore, the eye that is exposed to excessive radiation is also more at risk of developing cataracts (clouding of the eye lens) and also macular degeneration (damage to a small part of the retina of the eye that is important for capturing visual stimuli). Not only that, your risk of developing pterygium (the lining of the eye) and melanoma (a malignant tumor originating from melanocytes) will also increase if you are frequently exposed to UV radiation from the sun.
There are various ways that can be done to prevent the bad effects of radiation exposure on the eyes, one of which is by using anti-radiation glasses. These glasses are specially made, especially to ward off the bad effects of UV radiation that comes from sunlight. For this reason, the use of these glasses is more recommended when you have a lot of outdoor activities, where your risk of exposure to sun radiation is greater.
The use of anti-radiation glasses to ward off blue light radiation from gadgets can also be done. However, many studies show that this is less effective to do, considering that the light emitted from the gadget is mainly an electromagnetic wave. Today, most gadgets are also equipped with a separate anti-glare coating which is sufficient to ward off radiation. In addition, various studies also show that the risk of eye irritation due to blue light radiation from gadgets is actually much smaller than the radiation effects caused by the sun's UV rays. More often, eye disorders that occur as a result of prolonged exposure to gadgets are dry eyes (xerophthalmia), eye fatigue (asthenopia), and eye refractive errors (myopia, hermetropia, and cylindrical). Therefore, excessive use of gadgets must be avoided.
That's all for our explanation. For more complete information, please consult directly with an ophthalmologist.
I hope this helps.
