Being a writer can mean a lot of sitting down staring at a computer screen (ok, we are actually writing some of the time, but we also do a lot of aimless staring, right?)
Recently, I’ve found myself getting a lot of headaches from the screen, sometimes leaving me unable to use the laptop for even an hour. For a writer who likes to write for large chunks of time, this was getting problematic.
But I’ve found a great solution to those headaches (that I stole from my husband), and it comes in the form of NoScope gaming glasses. They work by filtering out the harsh blue light emitted by electronic devices, which, not only help with headaches and eye strain, but can apparently help with insomnia too. I’ve honestly found them to be fantastic, and I’ve been able to increase my screen time threefold.
The only problem I have found is that they sit very snug to the face, so they do mist up quite easily, especially with the copious amounts of coffee I drink! But, they do have a range of styles, so some of the others might not suffer from coffee steam quite so badly.
They’re priced very reasonably and, while based in the US, they do ship internationally. Honestly, I’ve found these glasses a godsend, both with my laptop and my tablet.
Now, full disclosure, this link is my husband’s affiliate link, but if you want to cut down on screen-induced headaches, I whole-heartedly recommend NoScope. Check them out Here.
