Notebooks and iPads are small and light. They can contain thousands of books, and they make it easy to order and receive new books with just a few clicks. Their portability makes them the perfect option for book-lovers on vacation. Plus, one device, used many times, is more environmentally friendly than buying and recycling many magazines, or having several books shipped to you.
But for poolside reading on a sunny day, your device’s screen isn’t such a dream come true. Most device’s screens have a subtle glossy shine, which reflects light back into your eyes and creates glare.
Many device owners know that glare from their screens causes headaches and eyestrain over time. But there’s a more insidious threat than this: in addition to reflecting visible light back into your eyes, your device’s screen reflects back the sun’s invisible ultra violet light.
The Dangers of Ultra Violet Light
Although ultra violet light is dangerous to the whole body, the eyes are particularly sensitive. Just brief exposure to UV radiation can cause photokeratitis and photoconjunctivitis, two painful inflammatory conditions caused by UV rays. In more severe cases, this inflammation can actually kill off the outer layers of the eyeball’s cells, which slough off painfully over time.
And when the eyes are frequently exposed to ultra violet light over time, this can cause several chronic health conditions. UV radiation can cause cataracts, for instance, which can cloud vision and even cause blindness. And ultra violet light’s carcinogenic effects can even cause melanoma of the eye, which can be fatal.
UV radiation can penetrate cloud cover, so your eyes may be vulnerable even on an overcast day. And UVA rays, which cause premature aging and some forms of cancer, penetrate glass windows. Even if you’re indoors, your device’s screen may still be reflecting ultra violet light into your eyes.
Most people know to slather on sunscreen to protect skin from ultra violet light. But few people take the same sorts of measures to protect their eyes from invisible UV radiation, leaving their eyes vulnerable.
Cut Down on Glare
But there’s an easy and inexpensive solution. Anti-reflective screen protectors like the NuShield DayVue™ cut down on the screen’s glare from sunlight and other light sources. This greatly reduces the amount of UV radiation reflected, which keeps your eyes safe.
With the DayVue screen protector cutting back on glare, your screen will be easier to read in direct sun. You’ll be able to read a whole chapter without squinting, headaches or eyestrain. And the DayVue doesn’t change your display once it’s applied, meaning that your screen’s colors will be as bright as ever.
Plus, the adhesive DayVue film is easy to install, lasts for years and protects your device’s screen from scratches, scrapes and cracks. You’ll protect your device and your eyes at the same time.
So don’t endanger your eyes with ultra violet light this summer. Order now and protect your screen and your vision with a DayVue screen, and enjoy your poolside reading to its fullest.
