Missouri Eye Consultants: A new name for the eye doctors you already trust. Learn more here

We use digital screens in our daily lives now more than ever before, which means we’re more exposed to increased levels of blue light. Our team at Missouri Eye Consultants can help protect your eyes from digital eye strain with blue light-blocking solutions to prevent uncomfortable over-exposure.

What is Blue Light?

Much like how the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays are harmful to our eyes, extended exposure to blue light can cause eye strain because it has higher energy levels than other visible light. Digital screens are a large source of this blue spectrum light, and while it isn’t harmful in moderation, excessive blue light can negatively impact your sleep cycle, leading to difficulty sleeping and restlessness.

Why Blue Light Protection Is Important?

While digital screens are an unavoidable part of everyday life in this day and age, blue light overexposure doesn’t have to be! Over time, excessive exposure to blue light from screen time can damage your retina. Too much blue light, especially at the end of the day, can also disrupt normal sleep patterns. Blue light blocking technology is embedded into the lens of your prescription glasses. Some patients prefer to have a separate pair of dedicated glasses for computer use. This type of computer prescription will have blue light filtering, anti-reflective treatment, prism to aid in convergence demand, and a computer working distance focal length.

“Moberly Eye Center has great customer service. All the staff was patient with my son. He is very shy and struggles with anxiety. They were able to make him comfortable for the eye exam.”

“The thoroughness of the exam, the friendly but professional demeanor of the Doctor and staff, and the quality of the eyeglasses I received, give a top notch rating to the Moberly Eye Center in my opinion and experience.

“Dr. Liepins is beyond AMAZING! It’s evident that she’s very passionate about not only her job/work but her patients in general. Both my kiddos (ages 7 & 3) are at ease with her which speaks volumes for how well she does her job. Dr. Liepins is fabulous and everyone we’ve encountered in the office has been great. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Columbia Eye Consultants!”
