How to Avoid Straining Your Eyes if You Stare at a Computer All Day

How To Avoid Eye Strain At Work

Think about your day for a second – especially if you’re behind a computer screen. Now ask yourself if your day typically includes any of the following:

  • Headaches
  • Tired, sore, or dry eyes
  • Blurry vision that gradually gets worse
  • Shoulder, back, and neck pain

If your answer was ‘yes’ for any of these symptoms, you could be suffering from eyestrain. This condition is becoming more prevalent with each passing day. In fact, screen-stimulated eyestrains are so common these days that it now has its own name – digital eyestrain (or computer vision syndrome). 

Causes Of Eye Strain

 Our eye's natural lens is not designed for exposure to artificial blue light emitted from digital devices. Since short wavelength, high energy blue light penetrates all the way into the retina and scatters more easily than other visible light, this will induces unfocused visual and reduces contrast.  

When you're looking at computer screens and other digital devices that emit significant amounts of
blue light, this unfocused visual puts strain on the muscle that helps the eye to focus. Unnecessary exposure to blue light can have adverse effects on eye health.

Preventing Eye Strain

EXYRA has developed an affordable solution – glasses that filter the artificial blue light from our computer screens, smartphones, tablets and other devices. EXYRA glasses will only allow the healthier blue-turquoise wavelengths to enter our eye so we still maintain full colour perception while protecting us from eye muscle strain.

The EXYRA eyewear are available in prescription and non-prescription options and come in variety of frame choices that ideal for working on your tablet or computer, and trendy enough to keep on all day.

How do EXYRA Glasses Work?

Most lenses that block blue light are made with a special coating on the lens surface that reflects the light. With EXYRA lenses, the photochromic dye dispersed in the lens material itself. This "in-mass" technology blocks light by absorbing it. Watch Video here:


“We tried out two pairs of review EXYRA glasses supplied by the manufacturer. For image editing, copy writing and reading, our experience over two months, was that we could work at a screen longer during the day without eye fatigue” Greg Roger –

"I’ve been testing the non-prescription lenses for the last couple of weeks and I must admit that some of the issues I have by using computers and smartphones all day have been greatly reduced. More importantly, those itchy and dry eyes are slowly becoming a thing of the past and given that my office is filled with florescent lights, the EXYRA Eyewear help in blocking this unnatural light. Another benefit I’ve found is that the glasses help in reduce glare and when looking at a monitor, the colours seem more natural with almost a ‘warmth’ to them. – Tony Smith, Impulse Gamer

I was really struggling with poor focus and headaches while working at my computer for hours at a time. These glasses have made a huge difference. From the first day I used them my problems completely disappeared. I wish I'd bought them sooner! - Tijana S, Verified Purchase
