People wear blue light glasses to “block or filter the high-energy blue light coming from digital screens,” according to WebMD. The thought here is that looking at screens and getting too much blue light could cause headaches, eye strain or other issues.
Throughout history, we had a natural light source from the sun. Now, as technology continues to develop we look at computer screens more often. That’s led to concerns about getting unnatural levels of light, especially at night, which can impact sleep.
But do they work?
While the American Academy of Ophthalmology said it does not recommend any special eyewear for computer use, others have reported benefits from the glasses. It’s important you do your own research before purchasing. But if you are interested in blue light blocking glasses and are looking for a pair here are some types you can check out.
