The need for online school and online socializing in order to keep safe during the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a steep increase in screen time for most children and teens. This information from a recent New York Times article confirms this fact: "When the coronavirus lockdowns started in March, the kids' tech firm SuperAwesome found that screen time was up 50%. Nearly a year later, that percentage hasn't budged, according to new figures from the firm." With all of this additional screen time, children's eye health is at risk. The good news is blue light-cut screen protectors can help prevent macular degeneration, reduce eyestrain and headaches, and may even keep sleep patterns stable. But what is blue light and why can it have these negative effects on human health?Continue reading
We’ve all watched the Christmas Story movie, right? Remember when Ralphie was asked, “What do you want for Christmas, Ralphie?”? Instead of answering, “I want a Red Rider Carbon Action 200 shot range model air rifle,” what he REALLY meant to say was “I want a Photodon blue light–cutting, scratch–resistant screen protector for my Samsung 49-inch Curved Gaming Monitor !!!” HAD he said that he wouldn’t have been tormented with the “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid” saying from all of the responsible adults in his world.
Andy was on a mission to find a screen protector that would keep his new 55-inch television protected from scratches AND his eyes protected from eye strain. After researching the Photodon website, he enthusiastically placed his order with an MXB blue light cut screen protector, but it wasn’t just for his large gaming television monitor. He also bought MXB blue light cut screen protectors for a 2nd TV and for his iPhone!
Reason (and we install – fairly local)
Why? Andy’s biggest concern, even ahead of keeping his devices in pristine condition, was conserving his eye health. He was trying to diminish his chances of developing macular degeneration like his grandma had and like his mom has now. Photodon’s blue light cut screen protectors can help to reduce the threat of this potentially life-altering condition.
Andy chose Photodon for its MXB screen protectors because his research led him to us. Our informational site, accompanied by blogs, research, and videos, helped convince him and his parents to use our MXB screen protectors to protect their devices and their eye health.
And because Andy lives relatively close to the Photodon shop, he was able to have us install his new MXB screen protector onto his 55-inch television for him in our cleanroom.
How is it working for Andy now? “The protectors are amazing! My eyes do not get tired as quickly as they did, and I am sleeping better than I was before them.”

Because June is Computer Vision Syndrome Awareness Month, we thought we'd showcase how Photodon's MXB blue light-cut film can help not only eye-health but overall health.
The American Opthomalic Association warns against the dangers of long periods of exposure from computers and other digital screens on the health of our eyes. Computer Vision Syndrome is basically eye strain and blurred vision due to staring at digital screens for long periods of time.
