Are Blue Light Protection Glasses Worth It?

Whether you are indoors working on your computer or outside enjoying the sunshine, you are being exposed to blue light. This type of light is a high-energy light wave close to UV light based on the visible light spectrum.

Some exposure to this blue light is okay, but since blue light can go right through the cornea to your retina, it can have a significant impact on your vision. If you work on the computer frequently or use other devices, you may be wondering if blue light protection glasses would be a good investment.

Should I Get Blue Light Protection Glasses?

  • Dry eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Strained eyes
  • Headaches

Blue light glasses are worth the investment, especially if you are working in front of a screen for an extended period. With blue light protection glasses, you can alleviate the symptoms of digital eye strain and take the pressure off your eyes while working on the computer or other device for a long period.

Students and office workers who spend most of their time in front of a computer and other digital devices can benefit greatly from blue light protection glasses.

Even with blue light protection glasses, you should make it a point to take a break away from your device at least every 20 minutes to give your eyes a break.

Are Blue Light Glasses Safe to Wear All Day?

You can wear blue light glasses as often as you would like or as often as your optometrist has instructed. If you wear prescription lenses, you can purchase lenses with a blue-light protective coating, which protects you throughout the day while using your digital devices. You may also consider purchasing blue-light protection glasses to use when working on the computer or other digital device and wearing your regular glasses when away from the computer.

At Dittman Eyecare, our experienced team can help you navigate your various options for glasses, including blue-light protection eyewear and designer frames.

Is Blue Light Protection Eyewear Recommended?

Since blue light can put a strain on your eyes while using digital devices or a computer for an extended period, blue-light glasses are recommended to help reduce the strain on your eyes. We also recommend frequent breaks from electronic devices, especially before bedtime.

Blue light protection eyewear is the best option for alleviating digital eye strain symptoms, making them a great investment in your everyday comfort and eye health. Contact Dittman Eyecare today to learn more about your blue light eyewear options.
