    Default Do Blue Light Blocking Glasses Really Work?

    There is a new trend taking social media by storm—computer glasses. As our lifestyles begin to rely more and more on screens, the effects of these screens on our eyes is becoming very apparent. You might suffer chronic headaches, blurred vision or experience general eye fatigue if you stare at a screen for too long.
    That’s where computer glasses come in. These fancy tech glasses are designed to block the blue light waves your screens emit to reduce that eye strain and improve sleep quality. But do they actually work?
    Yes and no.

    I've been using f.lux for years. If this is new to you, please check it out. It correlates the light on your screen with the time of day in your time zone, avoiding that harsh blue light. Here's a link, but because I'm on a Mac, it's the Mac link. Just google f.lux.

    Really, it will protect my eyes????

    Yes, because it overcomes that blue light that puts so much strain on your eyes, and helps prepare you for sleep.

    I purchased 2 pair of blue blocking clip-ons for my reading glasses that I sometimes have to use when experiencing eye fatigue at my computer or TV flats screens. These clip-ons provide average shading no matter what the light source, however when watching a LED flat screen (only), one can tilt their head ever-so-slightly, about say 5 degrees (*) or less, to the left for increased shading, and 5* or less to the right for reduced shading. The slight tilting feature does not work from any other light sources, only providing the average shade from the center no-tilt position. They work well for me, and I recall paying about $10.00/clip-on at a discount store.
