Desk Light & Everyday Computer Use
I wear my sunglasses at night.
Not really, but almost. I’ve got pale blue eyes, which makes them highly susceptible to light. In the morning when I come into the office it takes a couple hours for my eyes to fully adjust, especially with the overhead lights and glare from the computer. If it was professionally acceptable, I’d absolutely wear my sunglasses indoors for a bit.
Regardless of your light threshold, the strain we put on our eyes during the average week is not to be trifled with. Staring at screens for eight hours a day is causing more and more office workers to develop symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome, which I’ll admit doesn’t sound like a real thing but actually is.
Having grown up with computers, my sensitive blue eyes are more than familiar with screen glare, but recently they’ve been getting painfully dry. I’ve gotten eye drops and all that, but if something isn’t done about the problem itself, I’ll just keep treating symptoms.
Natural OLED Desk Light by Workrite
That’s why I’m stoked about the Natural OLED Desk Light from Workrite. This task light emits a light so similar to natural sunlight, I might be able to get away with wearing my sunglasses inside. Okay, probably not, but it is designed to consistently project its light without producing any glare, UV, or blue light, making it the optimal task light for the office.
Even if your eyes aren’t as sensitive as mine, they still need to be protected from the strain you put on them just by doing your job. With the touch sensitive dimming switch on the Natural OLED Desk Light, you can change the brightness as your eyes change throughout the day so your desk is always properly illuminated. In the movement towards healthy offices and workers, let’s not turn a blind eye to...well, our eyes.
