What are blue light glasses?
Blue light glasses are equipped with a special filter that prevents blue light from reaching the inside of your eye.
In recent years, computers, smartphones, and various electronic devices with bright screens have been used more and more frequently. This is why these modern glasses are suitable and recommended also to those who don't suffer from any visual impairment. The non-dioptric glasses are made specifically to shield your eyes from blue light, which is why they're often called „computer glasses“ or „anti-fatigue glasses“.

What are the benefits of blue light glasses?
Working with the laptop, watching TV, playing games for hours on end or scrolling endlessly through social media… you name it! Whether out of necessity or pleasure, smart devices are now our life companions.
The intake of blue light emitted by all of these devices – especially at nighttime – can however confuse our body and make it believe that it's still daytime and not yet time to sleep. Plus, a constant focus on the same spot can tire the eyes. Also, did you know that when we are using a device we tend to blink less? All of these actions can cause headaches, eye fatigue, or poorly restful sleep.
But there are simple solutions that you can easily adopt, one being anti blue light glasses. The others? Find out the experts' tips and tricks in our article on Digital eyestrain and Computer vision syndrome.
In summary, the most important advantages of blue light glasses are:
- Protection against blue light, preventing the waves of light from entering the eye
- Protection against UV rays
- Combat digital eyestrain, fatigue, headache and dry eyes.
- Improve contrast and image clarity on digital screens.
- Improve sleep quality and focus by filtering short wavelenghts that delay melatonin release.
