Glare is emitted from many sources of light, including computer screens (desktop monitors, laptop screens, phone screens, and tablets). It is a common and often overlooked culprit of Digital Eye Strain according to many. Symptoms of DES (also known as Computer Vision Syndrome), include eye strain, dry eyes, blurred vision, and headaches.
Luckily, there’s Felix Gray. Our lenses have a premium anti-glare coating (known as an AR or anti-reflective coating) to combat against glare. Anti-glare lenses virtually eliminate glare by allowing more light to pass directly into your eye from a single angle. This optimizes our visual acuity, which basically means we can see better.
Glare is particularly a problem at night. It’s one of the reasons looking at screens in dark settings is even harder on the eye. (Helpful tip: keep lights on when you’re doing work in front of your computer. By doing so, your environment is better lit and therefore the effects of glare are less.).
Ultimately, Felix Gray’s anti-glare coating aims to provide sharper vision and more relaxed eyes. We are dedicated to making people’s lives happier in front of the screen and so it’s critical that we use a premium AR coat to do exactly that.
