Blue light is a high-energy light commonly emitted by cellphones, computers, and televisions.
If you’re staring at these digital screens a lot, you’re being overexposed to harmful blue light, which can disrupt your body clock and cause digital eye strain (sore or irritated eyes, headaches, and squinting).
Additionally, the sun also exposes us to this type of light, allowing you to see blue skies and stay awake.
If your day-to-day comes with long hours of screen time and if you’re finding it hard to sleep at night, you may want to consider getting a pair of blue light glasses to help de-stress your eyes. We’re here to help you find the best pair.

What are blue light glasses?
Blue light glasses (sometimes called blue light filtering glasses) have a special coating on lenses that filter out up to 99.5% of harmful blue light before it reaches your retina.
They’re also known as glasses that you wear for screen time use and are often available without an eye prescription, or with a prescription if you have one.
Blue light glasses styles and lens colour
Since the best time to wear blue light glasses is pretty much all the time (which means you can wear them as your regular glasses), you can wear them indoors and outdoors. They’re ideal for:
- Screen time
- Reading outdoors
Clearly’s BlueReflect™ and BlueReflect™ Plus lenses have a slight yellow tint and blue reflection on the surface of the lens, which works to protect your eyes from UV and harmful blue light. These factors are not very noticeable, and so they won’t affect your regular vision or appearance.
You can find tons of blue light glasses at Clearly that offer great light-filtering capabilities. If you want to protect your eyes and look good while doing it, there are many different frame materials to choose from, including:
If you don’t wear prescription glasses, you can choose a pair of blue light glasses without a prescription to wear during long hours of computer use.
If you do need lenses with a prescription, it’s easy to upgrade your lenses to include blue light filtering capabilities.
