You should also wear a screen protector when you’re working with lenses and you’re doing anything that requires you to look down.
If you’re a professional, you can wear a screen protector that’s approved for use by your employer, which helps protect your eyes from damage.
You can also get a screen protector for your phone or computer that’s not approved by your employer, and you should only wear that if you can’t wear glasses.
If you wear contacts, you can get a screen protector that has the same color as your contacts so you can easily match them.
