Into The Deep Blue Hazard

A modern coffee shop without two or more people staring and scrolling at a screen (whether it’s a smartphone or a laptop) can be hard to find these days. It’s true that these devices have made lives easier and more entertaining, but too much, even of a good thing, can be dangerous in the long run especially when these devices emit high-energy visible light or blue light. Gunnar optiks have the perfect solution for this problem.

Good news. this can be prevented by wearing protective prescription eyeglasses from a trusted brand such as Gunnar Optiks.
