Blue Light Glasses Canada – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

As you’ve likely read, studies have shown that blue light from computer, tablet and smartphone screens may cause eye strain, sleep disruptions and other health issues. Blue light glasses filter out some of these harmful rays and reduce the impact on your eyes. The result is more comfortable vision, reduced headaches and fewer sleep disturbances.

Originally, blue light glasses in Canada were tinted yellow and unfashionable, but the latest styles are imperceptibly tinted so you can wear them at work or for long hours at home without anyone knowing. They’re also designed to let most of the good light through so your eyes can still see well, even in dim conditions.

In addition to blue light, these lenses filter out a good amount of the high-energy visible (HEV) rays that can damage your eyes and disrupt your circadian rhythm. They also filter out UV rays to help protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful effects.

Blue Light Glasses Canada: Protect Your Eyes in Style

Our Good Housekeeping editors put several pairs of blue light glasses through the paces by wearing them throughout work days spent in front of laptops and monitors, as well as after-hours TV watching and video game playing. They evaluated each pair for comfort, fit and performance as they performed during these activities over the course of two months.

We’re thrilled to report that all the blue light glasses we tested passed with flying colors! They’re all super stylish, easy to adjust and come in a variety of frame shapes to suit every style.
