Do Blue Light Glasses Actually Work?


With many people having to transition to working from home in the past few months, it’s possible that you’ve considered blue light glasses to help with any computer-related headaches you’ve been experiencing. But do these glasses actually help?

Read on to learn more about how blue light glasses work and what they do.

What Is Blue Light?

Out of all the colors on the light spectrum, blue light has the shortest and highest-energy wavelengths. Because of this, it tends to flicker more and for longer lengths of time than other colors on the spectrum.

Blue light is also visible to the human eye and is found in both natural and artificial sources all around us. While the sky gives off the greatest amount of natural blue light, the electronic devices we use every day give off artificial blue light as well.

Because blue light is both visible and flickers, prolonged computer, laptop or smartphone usage often leads to symptoms such as eyestrain, sleeplessness, blurry vision and blue light headaches.

What Do Blue Light Glasses Do?

Blue light glasses are designed to prevent blue light rays from entering the retina. Unlike the regular lenses on a pair of glasses, blue light glasses will either absorb or block blue light.

These glasses, which are sometimes called computer reading glasses, are designed to be worn to prevent symptoms of eye strain, headaches and migraines.

How Do Blue Light Glasses Work?

Blue light glasses, which do not require a prescription to buy, can provide you with relief from eye fatigue and strain caused by using electronic devices for extended periods of time. Essentially, these glasses work by filtering out the blue light and lessening the contrast coming from the images on your screen.

Some glasses come in different tints, which allows you to customize your glasses based on your specific vision needs and screen settings. Regardless of which style or tint you choose, blue light glasses will cause the light rays to bounce off the lens and lessen the overall impact of using a bright screen.
