Why Use Computer Glasses? What Do Computer Glasses Do?

Do you feel eyestrain while staying in front of your computer? It is probably the effect of the blue light radiation that your digital device emits. Wearing computer glasses that block blue light will ease your symptoms, so you can stay hours in front of your device without worrying. We are living in a digital world, where there is a computer, tablet, or mobile phone on the desk of almost every home and workplace. Nowadays, most people are working from home, and are becoming addicted to digital devices, especially now during the pandemic.

What are computer screen glasses?

Computer glasses are blue light blocking glasses that help to maintain good eye health. They also impact your overall health as well. Many of us have vision problems, which means we should take proper care of our eyesight. Blue light blocking glasses are the perfect solution for these kinds of situations. 

Blue light glasses differ from regular ones because they have a special coating that protects your eyes from the harmful blue light radiation, which in turn helps to reduce eyestrain, headaches, migraines, and other eye and health-related conditions. Wearing screen glasses will help you keep your eyes healthy while working in front of the screen without discomfort. 

Computer vision syndrome

Computer vision syndrome1 is a temporary condition of the eye caused by long, uninterrupted periods of looking at a computer screen. Some symptoms of computer vision syndrome include:

  • headache
  • blurred vision
  • neck pain
  • fatigue
  • eye fatigue
  • irritated and dry eyes
  • difficulty focusing


These symptoms may be worse with inadequate lighting, ie. a very bright screen, not enough light in the room, etc. Computer vision syndrome is caused by reduced frequency of blinking during prolonged work on a computer. The normal blink rate2 is 12 to 25 times per minute. Research3 has shown that the frequency of blinking is reduced by 66% for people who work at a computer. Also, the effort invested in focusing the gaze for several hours strains the eye muscles and causes headaches.

Benefits computer glasses offer

Blue light blocking glasses are for everyone who is exposed to at least 4 hours of blue light radiation. Staring for hours at your computer makes your eyes feel pain and to become irritated. This will cause you difficulties to stay focused and concentrated. All these things mentioned are happening due to chronic exposure to the harmful blue light. That’s why computer glasses can be an excellent choice. Because these glasses are ideally designed for people spending hours in front of the computer, phones, or tablets, you must know the benefits they offer. They include:

  • reduced eye strain and headaches
  • decreased dry eyes and eye irritation
  • improved sleep
  • regulated circadian rhythm
  • regulated secretion of the hormone melatonin


Think carefully and choose the best blue light blocking glasses for better eye health. As mentioned before, uncontrolled exposure to blue light radiation leads to many unwanted conditions and often causes sleep disorders because it affects the secretion of the hormone melatonin. This usually happens because we are exposed to artificial light just before bedtime.

How to prevent negative consequences?

If you are already wearing glasses, it is important to also have a protective layer that blocks harmful radiation from your computer, mobile phone, or tablet. This layer will protect your eyes, allow you to perform all tasks at your device, and will avoid frequent headaches and dry eyes. If you don't normally wear prescription glasses, "preventive” glasses are ideal for you, which will protect your eyes from having eye-related conditions in the future. However, with a little effort, you can make big changes. 

Prospek blue light blocking glasses

Prospek glasses offer high protection against harmful blue light. The optimal amount to protect your eyes is 50%. All blue light glasses for women and all blue light glasses for men are made of top-quality materials, thus they are extremely durable and comfortable. Many of the blue lens glasses offered on the market have dark orange/yellow tints, which some people don’t like. They are also poor quality, cheap, and don’t work well. In contrast, Prospek blue light glasses are made from premium materials and reduce orange/yellow tint as much as possible, while still preserving the optimum protection for your eyes.

Who are the glasses with blue light protection for?

These glasses are intended for all people who spend a lot of time in the office, work from home, or in rooms where there is LED lighting. Protection is necessary for all people whether you work or love to spend hours in front of mobile phones, computers, tablets, and TVs. Research4 shows that young people, especially children, need this kind of protection the most because their eyes are extremely sensitive to the harmful effects of blue light. It is important to mention that these glasses are also available to people who do not have diopters.

To sum up

Using computer glasses can help to prevent eye-related conditions. They can also ease the symptoms that blue light radiation can cause. Thus, they can improve your sleep quality and duration. See better and feel better with Prospek glasses!
