I used to play a LOT of video games and it was a lifesaver. Now at work I only use them when I get some eye-strain, usually an hour in the latter half of the day. There's no point wearing them 8-10 hours a day. Highly recommend, even if it's a cheap $10 pair online!

I'm still using a pair I picked up as SWAG from a conference (back when they used to be in-person)

I'm with you. I thought they were all hype too until I got a pair as a gift. I absolutely see the difference

Old tech, but if your phone/computer doesn't allow you to remove blue light then they work really well. There is a lot of blue light emitted even from ceiling lights so to lighten the load of blue light your eyes take in, it isn't an expensive experiment to test on yourself.

Yup. I used to get chronic headaches, especially in the office with all the artificial lighting. The glasses were a life saver, and I have found I fall asleep faster too. Had to google it, apparently blue light tricks your brain to wake up? Didn't know that was a benefit but that was cool haha.Β

Yes to the chronic headaches - mine are also much improved wearing blue light glasses.

Absolutely legit. 100%. Used to get headaches and eye strain by end of week, no more since blue lights. Definitely get some quality ones, but no need to overspend on the fancy name brand. Mine are Pixel, got em on amazon.

I use at certain times I know I'll be staring at the screen longer without a break. Entering data in spreadsheets, training seminars I can't walk away from, etc.Β

It’s legit, I believe. I could notice the difference in stress levels on my eyes while I stared at my screen all day long.Β

I notice a big difference. I used to get eye strain, headaches, and excess screen time seemed to be affecting my sleep. Ever since I got them, those have gone away. So in my experience they work, and all I spent was $15 on amazon

I'm realizing they aren't as expensive as I thought they would be.

I literally use blue light glasses as my everyday glasses. I used to get migraines from all the screen time, the change has been night and day.Β

I tried them but the ones I got had some type of magnification that didn't work for me....but I have friends that use them and really like them.

Definitely legit! Amazon has some decent one for cheap.

Not only do they help eye strain, but they make you look smart, as well as cover those bags under your eyes from the lack of sleep the night prior, lol.

You'd be surprised at how big a difference a good pair of blue lights make, especially when you have multiple screens and mix in some video games off the clock

I actually love my blue light glasses. After looking at computer screens all day long and with cells phones now a day wearing them has helped reduce my headaches and have improved my mood. They have a bunch of cheap pairs on Amazon that are super effective that I would suggest.Β
