Are blue light glasses worth it and if so, which ones should I buy?

I spend a lot of time in front of the screen and I hear mixed reviews if these glasses are worth investing in. Assuming most of you fall in a similar boat, I want to hear opinions on if they are worth buying as well as recommendations if they are!

So, I'll admit I got mine because I succumb to an Instagram ad. But I swear by my WearMePro blue light glasses. They have unisex options and options for men, as well.

Liz Moorehead  are those perscription for WearMePro?
Liz Moorehead
Nope, I only need prescription lenses for distance and driving. Standard clear lenses for WearMePro blue light glasses.

When I finally update my 4 year-old glasses this year, my optometrist recommended that I get lenses with a blue filter coating.

Looks like it's a pretty affordable option through the likes of Zenni (starts as a $17 add on) and you can get non-prescription lenses with the coating if you don't typically need glasses.

Thanks  Adam Stahl I don't normally wear glasses but given the amount of time I spend in front of the screen, I felt it may be worthwhile to look into them. Researching Zenni later today!

Connor DeLaney have you tried adjusting your computer's display settings? If you have a Windows 10 PC search "Night Light". From there you can adjust the red and blue tones and schedule night mode. Personally, I am often adjusting the screen brightness depending on the surrounding light.

Rachael McNerney  I haven't looked into that! I'm on a MacBook Pro so I'm sure they have something more than the "Dark Mode" for apps. Great idea!

I LOVE my blue light glasses. I mostly wear in the office as the lighting in front of my monitor makes the screen harder on my eyes, but I wouldn't work without them now!

What brand do you have  Kaitlyn Pintarich ? They're still on my maybe list but I'm trying to stock up on options!

I'll double check next week when I'm back in the office. I did try one brand (Felix Gray) and hated them, and switched to this one. I'll get the name and let you know!
