What is Blue Light?

Contrary to UV light, blue light is emitted all around us, every day — both indoors and outdoors, from the screens on our digital device to the sun as the biggest source. Extended exposure to certain wavelengths may cause eye fatigue and discomfort, but don’t worry! Our blue light filtering glasses and computer screen glasses can reduce your exposure to potentially harmful blue light. Learn how to choose the best lenses for blue light prescription glasses.

What Are Blue Light Glasses Good For?

Ever have a stiff neck and sore eyes after a long day of staring at your laptop, tablet, or phone screen? You’re not alone. Those are common symptoms of digital eye strain, a condition caused by exposure to potentially harmful blue-violet light.* So, what are blue light glasses good for? Our blue light filtering glasses are designed to protect your eyes and alleviate digital eye strain, making those unavoidable hours of screen time more comfortable.

*Disclaimer: Harmful blue-violet light is between 415-455nm.

HEV Light
So, what are we looking at? To start, the wavelength of visible light is between 380 - 780nm. High energy visible light, HEV, is between 425-455nm and may cause damage to our eyes. This portion of light includes harmful blue-violet light emitted by our digital devices. And with the average person consuming around 10 hours of screen time a day, blue light filtering glasses, blue light computer glasses, and computer reading glasses have never been more important.

Both our non-prescription and prescription blue light glasses men and blue light glasses women are designed to protect your eyes from extended exposure to harmful blue-violet light.

Whether you’re working into the wee hours of the night or binge-watching your favorite show, glasses for computer use, like women’s and men’s blue light glasses, are the way to go.

Many of my patients are spending more time on screens. I've recommended they try blue light filtering glasses, and most agree they can tell an improvement in their eye strain and fatigue levels.

Do Blue Light Glasses Have To Be Yellow?

In the early days, the lenses of blue light glasses were yellow, and the frames were notoriously uncool. But these days, they are super stylish and designed with seemingly clear lenses that filter out blue light at the higher end of the spectrum. So, while the lenses are imperceptibly yellow (and have to be in order to work), no one will ever know unless you tell them.

What Should I Look for in Blue Light Filtering Glasses?

Generally speaking, you should look for the same things you look for in any pair of glasses. Start by choosing frames that are right for your face shape. Then add blue light filtering lenses to your frame of choice.

If you need blue light readers or prescription glasses, consider a pair of SightRelax glasses.

Do You Need a Prescription for Computer Glasses?

If you don’t need prescription glasses to begin with, you don’t need a prescription for non-corrective computer glasses. Blue light filtering lenses can be applied to prescription and non-prescription glasses.

Our SightRelax glasses include a magnified section in each lens that makes it easier to read up close — giving you the best of both worlds.

Can I Use Computer Glasses for Reading?

Computer glasses are most helpful when reading from a digital screen. However, wearing them all day won’t harm your vision. Computer glasses may help reduce digital eye strain, which can be caused by long hours spent in front of screens that emit potentially harmful blue light.

While non-prescription computer glasses do have some similar features to reading glasses, it’s better to opt for readers when you need extra magnification to read books and other physical materials clearly.

Where Can I Get Cute Blue Light Glasses?

The best thing about blue light filtering lenses, other than the fact that they may reduce digital eye strain, is that they can be added to any of our frames! So, if you’re on the hunt for your next pair of trendy blue light glasses, your first step should be looking for your favorite frame on our eyeglasses pages. Then, apply a blue light filter at the lens selection step of the checkout process. It’s as easy as that!

Are Blue Light Glasses Effective?

Our blue light filtering glasses are effective at reducing your blue light exposure between 415 nm and 455 nm. This exposure comes from long hours spent in front of electronic devices like laptops, smart phones, and televisions.
