Blue light glasses are essential for both adults and children who are avid screen users and spend hours upon hours a day looking at their monitors or smartphones. The glasses have gained in popularity over the years due to increasing usage of digital devices which can lead to digital eye strain.
Blue light blocking glasses have been designed to filter out high-energy visible (HEV) blue light given off from digital screens. Blue light has the shortest wavelengths and that coupled with them being high energy means that light gets scattered into other directions, causing haze and blur on screens, and making it difficult to focus. This can result in digital eye strain and fatigue if we spend too much time in front of digital screens without taking precautions.
Blue light blocking glasses can help reduce the effects of exposure to blue light. Not only does this prevent digital eye strain but it can also improve sleeping cycles. This is because blue light reduces our melanin production (the hormone which helps us sleep at night), therefore disrupting sleep. Wearing blue light glasses can reduce the effects of dry eyes, headaches, eye fatigue and glare. It’s recommended that you wear blue light glasses if you spend lots of time in front of digital devices and experience headaches, eye strain, eye-fatigue or if you have trouble falling asleep at night.
Blue light glasses are considered a must for all the above and the Vision Council, a body representing the optical industry, even recommends these to prevent digital eye strain. Feel Good Contacts also suggest taking extra precautions to further prevent eye strain. This includes practicing the 20-20-20 rule which states that you should look away from your screens at something 20 feet into the distance for 20 seconds every 20 minutes. In addition to this, they also suggest keeping your eyes lubricated throughout the day with eye drops, sitting at arm’s length from the screen, blinking regularly, adjusting the settings on your monitor, lowering the screen so that your eyes are not so widely open and adjusting the room lighting.
Qualified opticians at this reputable eye wear brand suggest that contact lens wearers take a break from contact lenses from time to time and wear glasses; especially if they experience worsened symptoms of irritation and dryness. Another alternative to consider is silicone hydrogel contact lenses as they allow more oxygen to reach the eye compared to standard hydrogel lenses. You can buy these contact lenses for up to 50% cheaper than the high street at Feel Good Contacts.

This can help to reduce unwanted reflections, improving both visual comfort and contrast.
There are some other things to be aware of before purchasing blue light glasses. One being that they come with a slight yellow tint to them, and you may even notice a blue reflection on the lenses.
