Reduce Neck Pain with Better EyewearMay 07, 2021
We love to blame sore body parts on aging (it's the easiest way to get out of doing something you don't want to do!), but there are actually a number of ways in which some pains, neck pain specifically, can be related to eye health.
When was the last time you had an eye exam? Uncorrected vision, like wearing an out-of-date prescription, or even poorly adjusted glasses, can be a source of neck pain. Considering up to 41% of people who should wear corrective lenses don't wear them as regularly as they should, that's a lot of necks doing extra straining and pulling. Visiting your optometrist to make sure you're wearing the right prescription and that your glasses fit the way they should could help decrease unwanted soreness in your neck!

Increased use of digital screens that cause your eyes to work in overdrive can also attribute to these types of aches and pains. In the case where blue lights from digital devices cause neck pain, it is called computer vision syndrome, and almost 60 million people suffer from CVS across the world.
Blue Light protection can help! The lenses in blue light-blocking frames keep the harmful high-energy visible light that brings on neck pain and other not-so-fun symptoms at bay. The good news? We offer hundreds of options for Blue Light frames.
Your eye health is important. Getting an eye exam to make sure you're wearing the right prescription or regular adjustments can help you reduce such ailments, and if you are dealing with increased screen time, blue light blocking lenses can take your neck pain down a notch!SHOP ALL FRAMES
