Before the pandemic we have already been spending too much time in front of our screens whether it’s on a computer, smartphone, or a tablet. According to a 2018 report, adults spend about 11+ hours in front of a computer everyday. Now that we are in the middle of a pandemic, can you imagine the increase in our screen time? 

That we need our digital devices more now to keep us entertained and updated with things outside our homes means that we are more vulnerable to digital eye strain. We already know the effects of too much screen time can do to our eyes and our circadian rhythm. And so, it only makes sense to protect our eyes from getting digital eye strain by wearing blue light blockers.

If you haven’t got your computer glasses yet, you should get a pair or two already because you won’t probably be the only one at home spending time in front of the screen. If you’re not sure how to go about buying one online, here’s a quick guide to help you.

     1. Get your measurements - Before you start browsing our catalog for new frames, make sure you get your measurements first. It’s important to get the right measurements for a perfect fit. If you have your current glasses with you, you can get these info from the temple arm of the glasses and use it as reference when checking the product info of each of the Empire & Co. blue light blockers.

     2. Pick your style - Now on to the exciting part of the process of shopping for your first blue blockers. You get to pick the frame that suits your style and show your personal flair. 

                There are certain things you can consider when choosing your frame:

      • Select a frame based on your face shape - The key to choosing a frame that would fit you perfectly is recognizing the type of face shape you have — a diamond, oval, square, or heart shape. If you need help, here’s our Guide to Choosing Which Glasses Suit My Face
      • Show your individuality - Once you’ve identified your face shape, it’s time to select a frame that shows your personal style. Empire & Co. has a variety of lightweight blue light blockers for men, women, and kids that you can choose from. Whether you prefer a classic, vintage, or minimalist look. Check our catalog HERE.
           3. Place your order - Once you’ve taken your measurements, identified your face shape and selected your frame to show your personal style, you can now place your order and check out. 


      Congratulations! You’ve just bought your first computer glasses and you’ll be spending your time in front of the screen guilt-free.
