Have you tried out blue light glasses yet?
I hopped on the Blue Light bandwagon last year after asking my eye doctor about potential benefits. He told me that since I’m staring at screens all day for my job (and recreationally for my social life and blog), wearing blue light tinted glasses could reduce eye strain and be beneficial for my overall eye health in the long run.
I already wear glasses for distance (driving, movies, etc.) so I didn’t need to get a prescription pair when working from my laptop – just a simple pair of frames with the glass tinted. After one day of wearing them, I noticed an immediate difference! My eyes were less fatigued and dry throughout the day – you know, when you have to take a break and stare off at a wall so your eyes can reset after getting blurred vision? I didn’t have to do that at all! Degenerative eye diseases also run in my family, so decreased eye strain could delay any medical issues for me in the future. They can also prevent or lessen screen-induced headaches and help you reduce yellow light exposure before going to sleep!
Now I can tell the difference when I forget to wear my glasses by how strained my eyes are after a day at work. I’m also less prone to headaches now – so much life improvement with just a simple change!
My glasses are from Warby Parker (The Daisy, $95, in Tea Rose Fade), but there are tons of affordable, stylish options available for everyone! I’m sharing a few of my faves below. Regardless of your face shape and personal style, there’s a perfect pair for you!
Anthropologie Jade ($75), Cyxus Semi-Rimless ($20), Warby Parker Nelle ($95), TIJN Maaike Opal ($75), Prive Revaux Prodigy ($30), Felix Gray Roebling ($145), PROSPEK Pro ($40), Warby Parker Amelia ($95)
I hope I’ve convinced you to invest in a pair of blue light glasses, whether you normally wear a pair or not. Please let me know if you have any questions – I’ve been loving my pair so much that I’m happy to tell you more about my experience!
