Use Of Anti-Radiation Eye Glasses?
Hello, I am a worker who requires working in front of a computer for hours, I plan to buy anti-radiation glasses. whether anti-radiation glasses for me to wear while working. but are anti-radiation goggles enough recommended for daily use or for example when outdoors activities?
Hello Yusuf, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Computers or other gadgets do indeed produce a light which is called a light. However, this light produced, has been tested in many studies and stated that the fluorescent light produced by computer screens and other gadgets does not cause abnormalities in the eyes (eg cataracts, retinal damage, etc.). by sunlight, in the form of ultraviolet light.
The use of computers and other gadgets for a long time can indeed cause discomfort and tiredness in the eyes, and can cause dry eyes, but all this is not caused by exposure to the light produced by the monitor, but how long and how your habits in using your gadget .
Therefore, for and as a long-time computer user, there are a number of recommendations that are recommended such as:
Do not use any gadget for at least 3 hours before going to sleep because this light can disrupt the body's sleep cycle by stimulating the body to continue to wake up
Sitting 25 inches away from the computer screen
Place the computer screen slightly lower than your eyes
Take a break with 20-20-20 rule which is looking at an object that is located as far as 20 meters for 20 seconds every 20 minutes
Use artificial tear drops every time you feel your eyes dry
Adjust the brightness and contrast of your computer screen according to how the lighting in the room where you work
Regarding glasses, I ask whether it can really help reduce complaints or not in everyday computer use, based on research it does not provide significant results, especially if your ability to use a computer is still not good. So it is more advisable to improve the way of using a computer rather than using special glasses. For use outside activities, these glasses may indeed be able to help a little to reduce exposure to ultraviolet rays from direct sunlight.
However, to determine whether the current eye condition requires anti-radiation glasses or not, you should consult further with an ophthalmologist.
I hope this helps.
