If you can, marry a man who’ll buy you a pair of glasses to reduce eye strain.
I’m so not kidding!
Without even asking him to, El Hub got me these Gamma Ray Glasses ($30) from amazon.com last week, and they have straight-up changed my life.
Thank you, El Hub.
They’re great if you stare at a computer screen all day long, like yours truly. Something about filtering out the blue light, which is tough on your eyes, or something like that…
I’m not exactly sure how they work, but they do! My eyes seriously feel better at the end of the day, and my head doesn’t hurt (I get these headaches behind my eyes after I’ve been staring at the screen for 12 hours).
Because of the whole tinted lenses thing, though, I don’t use them when I’m working on pics. Mostly just writing.
It’s weird… When I wear them, I can actually feel the muscles on my face and eyes relaxing, and I don’t squint as much. By late afternoon when the glare on the screen in my office is at its worst, these help a lot.
Maybe… I don’t know. I don’t think so. I think they really work.
I’ve got the ones with the tortoiseshell frames, but they also come in black.
