If you're like us, it's likely that you spend over 6 hours a day looking at a screen. By staring at screens for this amount of time, we're making ourselves vulnerable to the uncomfortable symptoms of digital eye strain and 'blue light'.
Blue light is the nasty stuff emitted from your everyday digital devices. It has a high frequency and short wavelengths, similar to UV light. Studies have shown that, in the short term, increased exposure can lead to headaches, itchy or dry eyes, general discomfort and difficulty falling asleep.
Blue light impedes production of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin, confusing the brain and disrupting our circadian rhythm. This is why we can sometimes find ourselves restless after bedtime screen use.

The long term affects of prolonged blue light exposure may be even more serious, with some researchers suggesting its contribution to cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). There's increasing amounts of evidence supporting the possibility that excessive screen use can lead to the onset of permanent vision problems.
With most computer glasses, the lenses have deep orange tints that alter our colour perception and, to be frank, look a little ugly!
Our glasses filter blue light, but look just like regular glasses. Not only does that make them look great, but those who work with colour will find their work unaltered.
It's the perfect blend of fashion and function.MORE INFO

I absolutely love my glasses! I ordered two pairs because I couldn't decide which frames I would like better, and ended up keeping both. Sitting and staring at a computer all day long, these glasses have already reduced headaches. Plus they're very stylish :)
The glasses look great, and fit really comfortably.They work really well too. I used to get terrible headaches throughout the day and I have only got one or two in the entire time I've had the glasses.

After recently starting a new job which has me sitting in front of a computer for 8+ hours a day my eyes were red and itchy by lunch time every day. After one day with the glasses the difference was amazing. I am a week in and they are one of my best purchases ever!
