How to Choose Good Blue Light Glasses?

The best or good blue light computer glasses are those, of course, that can block blue light effectively while allowing the good blue light to pass through. Blue light generally is defined as visible light ranging from 380 to 500 nm in the light spectrum. Blue light sometimes is further broken down into blue-violet light (roughly 380 to 450 nm) and blue-turquoise light (roughly 450 to 500 nm). The blue-violet light is the one you need to avoid.

American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and numerous researchers have found the wavelengths of blue light hazard and also identified the peak Hazard Factor (Blue Light Hazard Factor B(λ), which defines the sensitivity of the human eye to low wavelength spectrum emissions) at 425 to 450 nm. That is where your eyes get “fried” by the blue light.

Beware of Blue Light Glasses Scams

When buying blue light computer glasses, always ask how many % of blue light do they block at 425 to 450 nm. Do not even consider blue light glasses that block less than 50% of overall blue light. Many will tell you that their glasses may only block 50% of blue light overall, but they will block 95% of the “most harmful” blue light at 410 nm and below. Do not fall for the scam. These are the deceiving marketing tactics from many sellers of “blue light glasses” today to sell glasses essentially useless against blue light.

Unfortunately, most of the current near-clear blue light glasses will protect you at less than 35% where the blue light will fry your eyes! The extra blue light coating that the opticians try to sell you when you buy your glasses will block even less. The worst offenders that we have seen are “blue light glasses” with nothing more than just a yellow tint that does absolutely nothing to protect your eyes! Do not be a victim. Be an informed consumer.
