Defending My Lasik'd Eyes From BLUE LIGHT: BLUE LENS EYEGLASSES FROM JAPAN , ORCHARD OPTICS



SO HERE WE ARE BLINDED BY TECHNOLOGY. LIKE HOW AN APP COMPLETELY CHANGED THE WA
Y WE ORDERED OUR FOOD IN A RESTAURANT, THE WAY WE APPLY MAKEUP, THE WAY WE ARRANGE OUR MEALS, EVEN THE WAYS WE FEED OUR DOGS.


TECHNOLOGY IS AN OVERWHELMING DEGREE OF SCIENCE, IT STEERS UP THE WHEEL OF OUR EVERYDAY LIVES. SAY, DO YOU CHECK YOUR EMAIL IN THE MORNING BEFORE UTTERING A QUICK PRAYER OF THANKS TO GOD THAT WE ACTUALLY WOKE UP AND HE HAS GIVEN US ANOTHER DAY TO LIVE? I SEE YOU NODDING THERE. CAUSE THE ONE WRITING THIS IS ONE GUILTY BITCH TOO. 


So while we embrace technology and enjoy being on our gadgets 99% of our everyday lives, do we really made an effort to think if this is actually harmful not just to our eyes but to our overall health as well?

A huge amount of debate is still ongoing if blue light protective eyeglasses is a must get to be able to protect our eyes from  gadgets i.e. smartphone, computers, tablets, etc. 


Many are aware that yes, blue light is harmful and it can damage our eyes but no one seems to really take it seriously. Unless you're like me who did LASIK SURGERY. TWICE. No, wait - technically, THRICE.


staring at screens is something i can't avoid, like how work depends on it, so IS THERE REALLY A THING THAT CAN IMPEDE BLUE LIGHT FROM DAMAGING OUR EYES? WHILE I'M STILL WAITING FOR AN ANSWER TO THAT, I DIDN'T BAT AN EYELASH GETTING AN EYEWEAR THAT CAN DEFEND MY EYES FROM IT.
As mentioned, for someone who had LASIK (pay no heed to how many times!) I wanted to of course get all the protection I need for my eyes! I came across this advert along EDSA about anti-radiation, anti-blue light lenses thingamajig and from then on i started my research and decided to get one for myself. as they say, prevention is better than cure, right?



Guys, first off I am not here to convince you to get one. Second, I am not here to convince you how bad blue light is; fact is not all blue light is dangerous. See, sounded more complicated right? Just thinking about it gives me crippling headache. 





I'm here to share about this eyeglasses that I've purchased from 
Orchard Opticswhich is made of BLUE LENS that is made in Japan. 




I was personally assisted by the Founder/Owner of Orchard Optics, Andrew Chang. 



He didn't have to convince me to get the Blue Lens, when I saw a sample I already knew I had to get my hands on one. I initially wanted to get the Crizal Prevencia by Essilor, which I did canvassed around Orchard area optical shops and it's about $180 (minimum). You have the option to upgrade it in which of course you have to top up. I even almost got one for $280, oh my lawrd.  But come to think of it, I told myself - I can spend moolah on makeup and this one I am being so blardy hell stingy?! Getting a pair of specs in Singapore is incredibly expensive so I'm such a happy gal to have met Andrew and got this awesome deal.






So this is the spectacles or eyeglasses I got from Orchard Optics. 









The frame is called 72Degrees, an in-house brand of Andrew Chang and I was told that you can only find it here. I had fun trying on frames, they're super lightweight and comfy to wear! Bonus part? They have magnetic sunglasses that you can just clip on to protect your eyes from the sun.  I recall spending 2 hours just to decide on which style and I ended up with this semi-cat eye, semi-glossy one. It's so pretty and everyone else in the shop voted for this too haha! This was personally handpicked by Andrew, thanks man! I'm glad I listened to his advice and you can't doubt a man's taste in fashion eh








The lens is extremely thin as well, non-reflective and you might think I only have the frame on when I wear it as the lens is really that unnoticeable when worn. The sides are even bendable I can adjust it myself without taking a trip down to the shop. Do note that mine has no power or degree. So if your eyes have power, please ask & verify with Andrew about its thickness. He can assist you find the right lenses for your eyes. 

Can you see the mix of matte & glossy parts of the specs here? (pic below) That matte part (the one which hugs your ears when worn) is soft and gentle. I hated specs which are painful not only to the nose part but also the ears/temple part of the face, if you know what I mean. This matte section is also the part wherein you can bend and adjust the eyeglasses to your liking. 




I mentioned this pair goes with clip-on/magnetic shades for sun protection.






Orchard Optics may look like a small shop from the outside but they have a lot of styles to choose from, as well as luxury brands (Hugo Boss, Givenchy, Furla, Ted Baker, Giorgio Armani, RayBan, etc). You're sure to find a pair with the right fit. 








You can watch the video here (demonstrated and done on my actual specs itself) by Andrew so you can see the amount of filtering it does. It doesn't totally block it, (i wish it does!) but hey this is better than nothing at all.

This pair is now my potential solution or shall I say, defender to eye fatigue and the dreaded blue light. It's a no frill way of addressing my problem or issues dealing with this harmful light emitted by the gadgets I use everyday.

Now I'm more at peace to stare on screens, although of course I instil self-discipline above all.


Again, let me reiterate that tho I've paid for this pair of Blue Lens Glasses, Andrew Chang gave me a very good deal, irresistible at that, I had to swipe my card in a jiffy. 

If you are interested to grab a pair for yourself, for protection, for your regular replacement of specs, or even for aesthetic purposes, don't hesitate to give Andrew a call or an SMS. Quote my name and he'll give 20% off on your purchase. Information such as address and contact details are stated below guys! I'm not getting anything from this guys just for your info again - no commission whatsoever. I'm just here to share with you all that I've gotten a good pair of protective lenses with a reasonable price and which I believe works better than any other types of anti-blue light lenses currently out in the market. Anyway, you can see for your eyes on how it works, Andrew will always be ready to do a personal demonstration for you, just do set an appointment as his shop gets flocked by a lot of customers. 

This pair of glasses is just an additional protection, I also must take care of my eyes in every aspect I can - healthy diet, getting enough sleep to avoid dry eyes, nutritional supplements as well. I will be talking more about it on my LASIK Surgery Experience series guys, so stay tuned.
