Blue light, yay or nay?
As you know I use glasses, and so does most of my family. I’ve used glasses since I started 8th grade. Buying new pairs is an effort and something I wait as long as I can before I do. Glasses are an expensive necessity, well until now.
For a long time now I’ve been looking for a new pair of glasses. Not any glasses, computer glasses, the ones with the special glass that filters the blue light from LCD monitors.
I’ve been looking around and specially on the ones from Gunnar’s. But they are expensive. Not only so, but also yellow. Every time I’ve consider it, and showed it to my friends/ colleagues they’ve laughed and pointed out that I would look even more like a nerd with those kind of glasses. I normally don’t care what people think when it comes to stuff like that, but even I see that it would look ridiculous.
A while ago I found the Holy Grail, PC glasses that aren’t yellow, and even better, they half the price of those I’ve been looking at before. They look like normal glasses. They use something called Blue Block glass; it filters out some of the blue light you get from the pc monitor. It’s supposed to protect your eyes. And for me, sitting all day at work with computers (2-5 monitors around me) and at home (2-3 monitors at the same time) I suspect this will help me out a lot.
