New to Photodon: Grease-, water-, and dirt-resistant, these indoor-outdoor hoods are made specifically for your device.
Using a digital device of any size in a brightly–lit environment can be tricky because the glare makes it difficult to see the screen, right? Plus, bright light and reflections can make the eyes hurt and cause headaches – which is no bueno. Not only that, but greasy hands or dirty work gloves do not play well with fussy materials. Think waitress and waiter stations at an outdoor restaurant, or industrial monitors mounted on a shop wall.
Open office spaces, where employees all work in one open space with few to zero barriers in between them, can create problems. Productivity can slow because there are so many distractions. Or workers find they have no privacy. A Photodon monitor hood is an affordable solution to these problems.

Cut out the glare and reduce your eye strain!
“Eye strain does not have serious or long-term consequences, but it can be disruptive and unpleasant” says the Mayo Clinic. “It can make you tired and reduce your ability to concentrate.”
Eye strain (also known as asthenopia) is caused by overuse of the eyes. Activities such as reading for long periods of time, or focusing too long on a computer screen or on other tedious visual tasks are some of the common culprits contributing to wide-spread asthenopia. We hear from many people about the eye strain they experience caused by staring at the computer screen for too long, which leads to a condition known as Computer Vision Syndrome (or CVS).
Visual health can be negatively affected when eyes are exposed to long periods of glare from monitors or other electronic devices. Many people are not aware that their eyes are being hit with glare from their screen. The result can be unexplained headaches and eye fatigue. In fact, headaches are a chief complaint amongst some of our customers who are looking for anti-glare solutions. Long-term damage to the eye can also occur when it is constantly exposed to glare on a screen.
Here are ten ways to help reduce glare on your screen, which will, in turn, promote eye health.
Check for screen surface reflections by looking into your screen with the monitor off. When the monitor is on, the reflections may not be as apparent These reflections can obscure the screen image you want to see, causing unnecessary distractions and eye-strain.
