Best Computer Glasses for Drafters 2018

Are you always working in front of the computer and keep on experiencing dry and red eyes? Do you suffer from computer eye strain and wants to lessen or get rid of it? Well, I suggest that you read this article about the best computer glasses that drafters can use for this year 2018.

Drafters typically use computer software to transform the designs of engineers and architects into technical drawings. Usually they spend 8-10 hours in front of the computer just to complete their projects.

In return, health concerns rise up like dry eyes, red eyes, eye strain, fatigue and even mild headaches. 

Actually, I myself is a drafter. I have been working in a stone company in Los Angeles for almost 2 years. When I just started as a drafter, I don’t wear any eyewear when working. I noticed that my eyes become fatigued and I see red veins after a long day of work.

That is when I discovered about computer glasses. It helped me work for long hours in front of the computer and not feel any eye strain. But then, I still take frequent short breaks in order to maximize the results.

So right now, I decided to make a list of the best computer glasses that you can take advantage. This list is based on the effectiveness, quality, durability and affordability of the eyewear. I suggest that you give some time and look at your options.

Personally, I prefer the Spektrum and J+S vision glasses. They are just simple in design and not that expensive.

If you need something with magnification then you can look into the Eyekepper glasses since they offer wide range of magnification on the lenses.

On the other hand, if you already have your own prescription glasses then you can also look into the clip on computer glasses.

Nevertheless, all of this eyewear has the same purpose which is to protect our eyes from the harmful effects of blue light. So I suggest that you take your time and look at your options so you can get the best possible eyewear that you can use.

Hi Everyone! I created this website to share my thoughts about the solutions to various eye problems that are caused by too much staring at digital screens. I also tackle about preventive measures to minimize the harmful effects of UV rays.


  1. It is great to hear about the computer glasses that helped to relieve your eye problems due to your work as a drafter. I think this kind of glass can be used for people in lots of occupations where there is long periods of time in front of the computer.

    1. You are right. This computer glasses does not only benefit drafters. They also can be taken advantaged by those people who are always in front of the computer.

  2. Hi John Rico,

    I’ve enjoyed your reviews for different types of glasses for computers. As a Civil Engineer, I can confirm what you are saying. We do spend countless hours on our computers at work and at home.

    I’ve been considering buying the J+S vision glasses for some time now—because of their low price and stylish frame.

    Would you recommend those over the Spektrum?

    Thank you for another great Computer Glasses Review

    1. As of now, I am using the J+S vision glasses. What I like about it is the bendable temples. Basically, it helps in giving a good grip to your head. But if we base it in the protection that it gives, it is just the same with the Spektrum glasses.

  3. I like the clip on version! That seems like it would be really handy to be able to move up and down instead of taking them off and putting the back on.

    Good website! Cheers

    1. So basically, the clip on glasses is offered for those people who already have their own prescription eyewear. But if you don’t want to add more weight in to your eyewear, You can also look into computer glasses that has a built in magnification power on its lenses.

  4. I also use glasses when dealing with the computer and you can’t even imagine the comfort it provides to my eyes. A glass shouldn’t be specified as a computer glass unless it has an anti blue light protection. I can spend hours against my computer with it and it won’t even make a single disturbance.

    That’s why I liked the J+S Blue glasses, has everything a drafter or gamer needs. Also CGIT CT 84 Looks awesome and great variant for people who spend a long time looking to their computer screen.

    1. I agree with you. People should start caring for their eyes and don’t let computer eye strain for granted.
