Schedule an appointment with Dr. Gottlieb Optometry over the phone or online to find out if you’re a good candidate for blue light glasses.
What are blue light glasses?
Blue light glasses protect your eyes from digital eye strain associated with extensive computer, phone, e-reader, or tablet use. Common symptoms of digital eye strain include:
- Dry eyes
- Sore, tired eyes
- Itching or burning eyes
- Double or blurred vision
- Light sensitivity
- Problems concentrating
- Sore shoulders, neck, or back
If you suffer from digital eye strain, your eyes might appear red or bloodshot. Blue light glasses available at Dr. Gottlieb Optometry have blue-blocking capabilities embedded into the lens, or premium coatings like Crizal® Prevencia and TechShield® Blue.
Am I a good candidate for blue light glasses?
To determine if you’re a good candidate for blue light glasses, your optometrist completes a comprehensive eye exam to evaluate eye health. They also perform vision tests to determine if you require glasses or contacts, or if your current vision prescription is effective. If you spend a lot of time at a computer screen, chances are you can benefit from wearing blue light glasses.
Which types of blue light glasses are best?
The optometrists at Dr. Gottlieb Optometry discuss blue light glasses options with you to determine which type best matches your needs. If you currently wear glasses, special lens coatings can block the harmful effects of blue light on your eyes. If you don’t require vision correction, blue light glasses are available with nonprescription, clear glass lenses.
If you’re ready for new frames, Dr. Gottlieb Optometry offers over 1,000 premium frames on display, including designer brands to meet any style preference. Examples include Ray-Ban, Oakley, Tiffany, Gucci, Versace, Calvin Klein, Prada, Tom Ford, Nike, and numerous others.
How often should I wear blue light glasses?
You can wear blue light glasses throughout the day or just while staring at a computer, tablet, iPad, or phone screen. Your optometrist lets you know when to wear glasses based on your vision prescription and the severity of your digital eye strain symptoms.
Don’t suffer from symptoms of digital eye strain, or computer vision syndrome, when you don’t have to. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Gottlieb Optometry over the phone or online to find out if blue light glasses are right for you.
