What Are Blue Light Glasses? 

Let’s talk about how blue light glasses work. Every time you use your computer or smartphone, your devices emit artificial blue light. The light illuminates the screen to help you view content. As you read or watch, the blue light penetrates the eye. 

Over time, exposure to blue light could lead to symptoms of digital eye strain. Eye strain can impact your work or leisure time, so it’s good to have a helpful solution for symptoms. Blue light glasses filter out some of the blue light wavelengths, so not as much of it reaches your eyes. Special lens coatings can help to lessen contrast and glare, which may help relieve eye strain symptoms. For best results with your blue light specs, it helps to know when to wear them. 

When Should I Put Them on?

So, when is the ideal time to wear your blue light glasses? Put on your blue light lenses whenever you’re exposed to artificial blue light. It’s a good idea to put on your glasses if you spend much of your day on a computer. A stylish set of lightweight blue light glasses are perfect for wearing to work or the home office. 

Put on a pair of blue light glasses while you watch videos on your smartphone. They can also help prevent eye strain while playing games or reading. Blue light glasses are an excellent companion for research or studying, but they’ll also ease your eyes if you’re scouring online recipes or video chatting. Now you know just how many activities are suited to blue light glasses. They’re especially helpful for those experiencing digital eye strain because wearing your blue light lenses can help to prevent symptoms of eye strain in the future.
