Best Blue Light Reading Glasses

Blue light glasses were designed to block the blue light that emanates from our screens, including laptops and cellphones. However, blue light isn’t always a bad thing, as much of it comes naturally from the sun (although, that isn’t great to stare into either!) As of now, there isn’t much proof that blue light blocking glasses will alleviate the eye strain and dryness that comes from staring at your screens all day, as that is more due to the length at which you are staring at a screen without taking a break rather than the actual rays of blue light. However, one thing they have been proven to help is sleep, which is a contributing factor to overall health as well as eye twitching and discomfort.

Many people these days spend a considerable number of hours looking at screens. Phones, tablets, laptops, TVs — we are constantly staring at screens for work, information and entertainment. In order to avoid headaches and other damaging effects from screen time, you might consider blue light glasses, which are designed to filter out harmful blue-violet light rays that these types of screens emit.

Blue light is harmful because it hits eyes at a higher frequency than other types of light. It is at the edge of the light spectrum, next to UV light. It has a shorter wavelength, which is what makes it more damaging to our eyes than other types of light.

There are many benefits to wearing blue light glasses. If you have trouble sleeping at night after looking at screens all day, it could be as a result of the blue light, which interrupts your circadian rhythm. The blue light glasses actually facilitate melatonin production, which helps you fall into a deeper sleep faster. By looking at screens all day, you can also develop eye strain, headaches, blurred vision and dry eyes. Blue light glasses reduce these symptoms and make looking at screens more comfortable.

DWYM Fun Fact

Blue light reading glasses should be worn whenever you’re looking at a screen. Light-colored lenses, such as yellow ones, are best for daytime use, such as when you’re working on a computer. However, you should remove your blue light reading glasses when you go outside so that your eyes can take in natural sunlight.

If you’re looking at screens in the evening or night, then the best option is to go with dark-colored lenses. Keep in mind that you should not wear blue light reading glasses while you are driving because they can cause color distortion, which can be dangerous while on the road.

The Blue Light Reading Glasses Tips and Advice

  • There are some blue light reading glasses available that have magnification capabilities. While these are not the same as prescription glasses, they do the job well for those who do not have a particularly high prescription.
  • While they are a functional item, you can also express your sense of style with blue light reading glasses. Black frames offer a contemporary and modern look, while tortoiseshell frames have a classic appeal.
  • Not all blue light reading glasses have the same effects. Take a look at the efficacy metrics of the glasses you’re interested in. They should block at least 90% of blue light in order to provide you with the benefits you need. Otherwise, you may still be dealing with headaches and eye strain as not enough blue light is blocked out.
  • Blue light reading glasses can come with different colored lenses, such as yellow, orange and dark red. The darker the lens, the more blue light is blocked. Lighter lenses are best for daytime computer use, so this is the most common option.
