Blue light blocking glasses have been part of the way I use my computer for more than 2 years now. I am honestly surprised it has taken me this long to add it to my list of things I love for the blog! I first bought my blue light blocking glasses at the suggestion of a friend, and have never looked back.
hindsight is 20/20 after all. 😉
Blue light blocking glasses have grown in popularity because they help block the amount of blue light your eyes are exposed to in a day from all of our digital devices. Blocking or reducing the amount of blue light you are exposed to is said to have benefits, like reducing migraine symptoms, helping you fall asleep faster, and more. I am not a scientist but Harvard University published more information on the dark side to blue light here.
I originally tried the glasses to see if they would help reduce my migraine symptoms. I wear the glasses when I am in front of my computer for long periods of time and use them at night when I am trying to wind down and fall asleep.
I have noticed the benefits from wearing my glasses. Since I have been wearing them they have really helped reduce the number migraines I get in the week, which is 100% a big deal for me! I also find that I have an easier time falling asleep at night if I am wearing them while I am on my phone before bed (yes, I know you are not supposed to do that).
If wearing glasses isn’t for you, there are definitely different alternatives to blocking blue light and exposing yourself to less in a day. I like my glasses and find they’re easy to grab and go when I need them. I bought mine from Eye Buy Direct but a number of different online retailers sell them now!
