Whether you’re in front of a computer screen all day at work or relax in your downtime by surfing the web and playing games online, there’s a good chance your eyes spend a lot of time staring at a screen. Blue light, which is emitted from computer screens and tablets, promotes wakefulness, causing red, dry, itchy and fatigued eyes. This can lead to migraines and negatively affect the health of your eyes over time. Blue light glasses reduce the amount of blue light your eyes are exposed to when looking at a computer screen, which is especially important when using a computer within four hours of going to bed. Unfortunately, they’ve typically been unattractive. Until now.

More fashionable blue light glasses have been popping up on the market as word spreads about the importance of reducing blue light. Here are four great options for anyone looking (pun!) to protect their eyes, get better sleep, and show off their sense of style.

  

1. UMIZATO Blue Light Blocking Computer Gaming Glasses

Boasting a fashion forward gender neutral design, UMIZATO’s Blue Light Blocking Computer Gaming Glasses are light, durable and ergonomic, making them comfortable enough to wear all day. The FDA-approved scratch resistant anti-reflective lenses are strong enough to filter out 30% of artificial blue light, as well as 100% of harmful UV wavelengths. The glasses come with a case and cleaning cloth, which will make you forget they’re blue light glasses and not a regular pair of stylish specs.

2. CGID Computer Glasses

CGID Computer Glasses have a classic Wayfarer look and are comfortable enough to be worn all day. The FDA-approved lenses block 90 per cent of high energy blue light from a computer screen, while still allowing 70 per cent of low energy light to pass through, which keeps colors from looking distorted on screen. One user found that after wearing the glasses for a week, their eye stamina improved and they no longer suffered from ‘eye’ headaches commonly found with excessive screen time.

4. Fitover Anti-Blue Blocking Computer Glasses

How can you wear blue light glasses if you already wear prescription glasses? There’s the Fitover Anti-Blue Blocking Computer Glasses, which like the name says, fit over your regular glasses, with a rubber nose piece that enables the glasses to also be worn on their own. The orange amber lenses block out blue light, helping to reduce headaches and encourage better sleep.
