As a Blogger I have been known to spend over 8 hours a day in front of either a computer screen, tablet or phone and that much screen time isn’t easy on my eyes. So when I attended BlogHer this summer and a friend pointed out a pair of amazing Snow Leopard Frames at the Phonetic Eyewear booth I was definitely intrigued. Phonetic Eyewear is definitely a fashion forward eyewear company but that isn’t all that’s awesome about these glasses…they not only look good they are good!
I asked a few questions and realized that not only were this cute glasses fashionable but they were Tech Savy! These glasses were developed to help reflect that blue light from the gadgets and devices we all love the most easing eyestrain and avoiding unnecessary damage.
OUR EYES AND BODIES WERE NOT DESIGNEDTO SIT IN FRONT OF A COMPUTER ALL DAY LONG.
That’s a fact that’s been written about for over 20 years now (by lots of incredibly smart men and women). Another fact? Computers, smart phones, and tablets are part of our everyday life. There’s no way around it, and we think it’s safe to say they’re not going anywhere. Combine these two facts and a problem emerges: Digital Eyestrain.
The lenses we use at Phonetic Eyewear were designed to combat the effects of Digital Eye Strain and alleviate the symptoms associated with Computer Vision Syndrome. Using a proprietary lens coating, we are able to reflect and absorb a portion of the potentially harmful blue light emitted from computers and other backlit devices.
Made of a high quality 1.56-index optical lens, all of our glasses come standard with the blue light reflecting coating and a hard coat to deter scratching and fingerprint smudges.
That was all I needed to hear. Well almost, as you guys know I wear glasses because I need to see not just because I love how fashionable they are. My next set of questions determined if Phonetic Eyewear could include my prescription on these amazing glasses. Luckily they have the option of having your prescription added to the lenses as well! Yay! So that was it… I was on my way to having a great pair of frames with the fashion forward style I love and lenses with the tech savy ability to take away the eye strain I hate.
Oh and don’t worry if you don’t need a prescription or even if you just want a light reading boost…Phonetic has you covered there too.
At Phonetic Eyewear, we offer glasses with clear, prescription quality lenses that have a special coating to deflect a portion of unwanted blue light. We put these lenses into our frames designed for you – someone who wants to protect their eyes and still look good. Available in plano and add powers for a little extra magnification, our frames are perfect for working at your computer or tablet, and stylish enough to wear all day long.
When my glasses arrived the first thing I did was check that I could actually see out of them – I could! Perfectly. Wearing my Phonetic Glasses is no different than wearing my everyday NerdGirl prescription glasses. Now guys I am so blind it isn’t even funny so I was worried that my lenses would be coke bottle thick and even have those dreaded bifocal lines. They Don’t! My Phonetic lenses are just as thin and have no indication of how bad I really need them…LOL Just like the lenses I paid so much for at my eyesore provider.
What was next? I slipped them on and went to work – I spent the entire day Blogging on my laptop and tablet and then half the evening on my phone keeping up with Social Media and by the end of the night that dull strain I normally felt wasn’t there. These glasses were doing just what they promised. I didn’t need to lower the brightness as much on my screens and my eyes felt great! Did I mention that these glasses Look Great!?!
I received numerous compliments on them from friends, family and even viewers who noticed them in my videos and Periscopes. It was unanimous – these frames were a hit!
I have been wearing my Phonetic Glasses for more than a month now using my laptop, tablet and smartphone and with each one the difference in the way my eyes feels has been amazing.
Whether you wear prescription glasses, pharmacy level glasses or no glasses at all Phonetic Eyewear is a pair you need.
Why? If you are like me and spend an extended amount of time in front of a screen whether for work, leisure or fun then your eyes need protection and these glasses offer that and look great too!
Before these glasses the only solution for tech screen eye strain was to wear yellow gaming glasses which don’t exactly scream fashionable or purchase special computer glasses through your doctor which face it can get a bit pricey. In short, Phonetic Eyewear is the perfect solution to an issue many of us face with our increasing use of technology plus they are come at the perfect style and price.
