Shield your eyes from harmful blue light

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 may cause eye damage and discomfort, but don’t worry! With our blue light blocking glasses, you can enjoy your screen time and preserve your eyesight. Learn how to choose the best lenses.

How Does Blue Light Affect Us?

How Does Blue Light Affect Us?

Our constant connection to our smartphones, tablets, and laptops may contribute to headaches, sore eyes, and stiff necks — all symptoms of digital eyestrain. With the majority of our waking hours spent in front of a screen, paired with harmful blue-violet light* from digital devices, it’s no surprise that our eyes are working harder than ever.

*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, men's blue light glasses and women's blue light glasses have never been more important.

FAQ

Do Blue Light Glasses Have To Be Yellow?

In the early days of blue light glasses, the lenses were a distinct yellow, and the frames were notoriously uncool. However, these days, blue light glasses are super-stylish and designed to only filter out blue light at the higher end of the spectrum. The lenses are not noticeably yellow at all. So, while they 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 Blocking Glasses?

Generally speaking, you should look for the same things you look for in any pair of glasses. Start by choosing frames that are the right size for your face shape. Then, find a pair of blue light blocking glasses that match your personal style. If you need reading glasses, consider a pair of glasses with SightRelax lenses. If you wear prescription glasses, you can just add a blue light blocking feature to your prescription at checkout.

Do you need a prescription for blue light glasses?

Only if you need a prescription normally. If you don’t need prescription glasses to begin with, you don’t need a prescription for computer glasses. Blue light blocking glasses, also known as computer glasses, can be bought with both prescription and non-prescription glasses. Our SightRelax glasses offer a section of the lens designed for reading – giving you the best of both worlds.
