“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment.
As technology continues to fill the world around us, we find ourselves staring at screens for hours each day. If that sentence describes you, then you need to ask yourself what you’re doing to protect your vision and the quality of your life from the blue light you’re continually exposed to. That’s the question that Barner Eyewear has answered for you.
At first glance they’re just a pair of stylish glasses, but Barner Eyewear is about much more than just good looks. The optic technology that has gone into producing this eyewear aims to combat the negative effects of blue light emitted from electronic devices—the culprit behind Computer Vision Sickness (CVD). Symptoms of CVD range from headaches and dry eyes, to trouble sleeping and macular degeneration. This condition has been characterized by the American Optometrist Association and has been studied by researchers at Harvard Medical School. Fortunately, the solution is a simple one.
Glasses by Barner Eyewear are very comfortable to wear, and have made a noticeable impact in the amount of eyestrain I feel after a long day of working on my laptop. As if that’s not enough, I also love that everything about the available frames from the shapes to the finishes are completely on trend. With nine different models to choose from, there is definitely a style for everyone. They will even customize the frames with prescription lenses!
