Why use Gaming Glasses. What are they and how do they work?
Video game consumption continues to grow, and we can now play from any device and anywhere. Surveys have revealed that players or “gamers” spend at least 3 hours a day playing and up to 4 hours a week watching broadcasts from other players. So much time in front of the brightness of a screen makes “gaming glasses” or “gamer glasses” more and more required. If you still do not know this type of glasses, continue reading the article and find out.
Gaming glasses, screen protection
When we speak of “gamer glasses” we refer to glasses with lenses that have a specific treatment so that they act as a blue light filter, that is, they allow them to block part of it. The percentage of blue light blocking can be variable, the higher it is, the more yellow the lenses will be. However, not necessarily a high block percentage is more beneficial. As an example we can say that, if gaming glasses blocked 100% of the blue light, we would not be able to see the blue color at all, producing an image distortion.
Knowing now this property of gaming glasses, perhaps you recognize them now by other ways of calling them: computer glasses, anti blue light glasses or glasses for screens.
Why use gaming glasses
The computer monitor, as well as any LED screen (television, smartphone), emits a large amount of blue light. The particularity of this type of light is that its wave is short and high-energy, being close to the ultraviolet, so it is more dazzling and it is more difficult to focus it. In addition, blue light acts as an inhibitor of the production of melatonin, which is the hormone responsible for regulating sleep.
This results in… If we spend many hours in front of screens, we can be overexposed to amounts of blue light that can lead to insomnia and visual fatigue. Other common symptoms are headaches, dry eyes or red eyes, a product of the effort made by our eyes.
