If you have one monitor and nothing else then I guess purchasing a screen protector could be a reasonable purchase (but only if you use the screen protector until your death at a really old age, at which time the screen protector is then passed onto another really young person who is going to live a really long life).
Who only has one device with a screen in today’s insane techy world? I am betting your life’s techy screen inventory looks something like this between your work and play existence:
- 4 gargantuan monitors
- 1 Microsoft Surface
- 1 Apple iPad
- 1 Kindle
- 1 iPhone
- 1 Android
- 1 laptop
- 3 digital frames
- 5 TVs (even one in the bathroom – someone please explain this to me)
- 3 gps units installed in all of your cars and electric scooters
When someone has this many device screens, it is a tad obnoxious to expect screen protectors be physically installed on top of each device screen. Why? Because blue light blocking solutions can be worn on the user as opposed to the device (in the form of glasses or hanging a huge screen on one’s face) or actually installing software on the device (some newer devices offer this option) instead of purchasing a bunch of screen protectors that physically reside on top of all of the devices.
If you have only one user and 21 devices (this seems like way too much stuff by the way), why would you subject the environment to 20 pieces of unnecessary waste (a physical screen protector for each device screen) when that waste can be cut down to just 1 piece (a wearable solution for the 1 user or, better yet: researching the screen settings of each device for possible software or settings solutions)?
A wearable or software solution for dealing with blue light not only creates less waste for the world but it may also save you or your company time and money.
