Do you often get headaches from looking at the computer or your phone for long periods of time? Most of us spend at least 2 hours a day looking at screens, whether it’s for work, scrolling through Facebook, or staying in touch with friends. Many of us even use our phones in bed! Looking at this light for too long can cause headaches, blurry vision, and permanent damage to your eyes. Sadly, digital strain is likely to stay around as we become more and more dependent on our devices.
It’s not just engineers and gamers we were worried about either. As a mother of three with ages ranging from teen to a young adult who is an aspiring game designer, and having lived in the Silicon Valley area for over two decades, the designer of TC Charton, Alexandra Peng, feels very strongly about having proper protection to combat this increasing concern that resonates deeply with her engineer friends and fellow parents. Unfortunately, technology like iPads and E-Readers haven’t been around that long so we don’t know exactly how harmful this could be to eye health. After combing through lens companies across the country, we partnered with a renowned lab located in California that offers lenses that can prevent damage to developing eyes!
Although there are other brands out there that offer computer glasses, we discovered there were none that were made specifically to fit non-Caucasian facial features, and none that were fit for children. What good is protective eyewear that doesn’t fit and keeps sliding down your nose?! This is where we step in. All of our frames are designed with Asian-Americans in mind, so not only was it our duty to provide safe and protective lenses, but also fit into a frame and style that would fit our customers properly and, in turn, help you take on your day in the best way possible.
