Like most people her age, Stephanie Kennedy spent 8 hours of her day at work, staring at a computer screen. Then when she got home and during her commute, she spent a lot of time looking at another screen...her cell phone.
She never really thought much of all the time staring at a screen but then she started noticing some bad things happening.
"I would often find my eyes red and feeling dry...they would start to hurt…" Stephanie continued, "I'd also get headaches a lot towards the end of the day. And I just couldn't get a good night's sleep".
She thought these issues were just from the normal stress of being a working mom. So, she did her best to deal with them as best she could. After months of suffering, she started to think that it wasn't just stress causing her issues.
But one day she noticed her friend Beth, who also worked at the same company wearing glasses for the first time ever. When she went to talk to her about how good she looks in them, her friend said something interesting.
"She told me, these glasses didn't have a prescription, she got them to help her with her digital eye strain."
Then we got to talking more and she had been dealing with the same issues I had been for months. Her eyes would hurt her, she'd get headaches often, and she slept terribly at night.
Her first thoughts were this was all caused by stress but after nothing she tried worked, she went to her doctor. That's when she first heard about DES (digital eye strain). After googling more about it, she saw that up to 200 million people suffer from the same thing on a daily basis.
The culprit of the digital eye strain is from the blue light all devices give off. And if you use devices for a combined use of just 2 hours a day, you probably suffer from DES too.
It didn't take long into the conversation for the lightbulb to go off. Stephanie knew she was dealing with digital eyestrain too. Before, she could say anything Beth, reached into her pocketbook and pulled out a pair of glasses and handed them to her.
"Try these. If they help you as much as they did me, you'll know for sure DES is your issue too."
Stephanie thanked Beth and went back to her desk and put the glasses on immediately. What happened later that day, shocked her…
"I couldn't believe it. It was almost time to go home and I didn't feel any eye discomfort and I never got a headache. Normally, by 10 am I was rubbing my eyes and reaching for Advil to deal with the pain."
Stephanie packed up to go home for the first time in months with little to none of the symptoms she had been feeling every day. Beth let her take the glasses with her home and told her to use them at night when on her phone in bed.
As soon as she got into work the next day she anxiously waited for Beth to show up. Before Beth could even get to her desk, she ran up to her…
"Beth, these things are a miracle. I used them when I was on my phone before bed like you told me to. Once I put my phone down for bed, I fell asleep faster and stayed asleep all night. This hasn't happened for me in months. You are a LIFESAVER!"
I gave Beth back the pair she let me borrow and asked where she got hers, so I could get my own. A few minutes later she texted me the link to a website for Hypnos Sleeps Glasses and I ordered 2 pairs (one for the office and one for home).
