What Do Blue Light Glasses Do?

Blue light glasses use a yellow tint filter built into the lens to filter out the blue light waves and stop them from reaching your eyes. If worn daily when you are in front of a computer screen, they have been shown to reduce headaches and eye fatigue in just a few days. Not only that, if you are on your devices at night, wearing blue light glasses can help regulate your melatonin levels, which are disrupted when we expose ourselves to blue light at night. Wearing blue light blocking glasses is becoming very commonplace in offices and with creative types who need to use a screen, and the effects are being felt by a huge range of people.
