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. Hi John!

    This was a very interesting article. I’ve heard of these kind of glasses before. This is also actually very relevant to me because I spend most of my time on the computer. I have a question though, is it still important to wear these glasses even if you have a yellow light program installed on your computer like Flux? Thanks!


    1. Actually, it depends on your own personal choice. If ever you already have the flux, try it for some time and determine if it works. If not, then you can try having a pair of computer glasses.

  2. I remember my student years very well and my eyes were getting TOO FRUSTRATED because of looking to computer screens long hours and lack of sleep during finals wasn’t also helping.

    Now I’m using a blue light filtered glass and it’ s AWESOME!!! I can sit in front of the coputer screen and won’t even feel any fatigue!! I advise something like J+S Vision which would really help out all the students!!!

  3. Hi John,

    I didn’t need any convincing that CVS is no joke. My wife struggles with it every day (her work is all on the computer). She has an old pair of computer glasses, but I’d like to get her some new ones as a gift. I’m curious though. Why do some of the glasses have darker tint than others? Is there a direct 1:1 correlation of tint level to CVS relief?

    1. Actually the darkness of tint doesn’t necessarily correspond to the effectiveness of the glasses. It just depends on your personal preference.

  4. Hi John.

    Okay! You convinced me that I need a pair, and most of them really aren’t that expensive. I am bookmarking your site, so after checking into which ones to buy; maybe I can purchase through the links on your site.

    I didn’t even know such a thing existed; but I have dry eye and my eyes are red and sore and have pressure much of the time. These glasses certainly seem worth trying. Do you think they would help someone with dry eye? I spend a lot of time in front of the computer and on my cell phone.

    Thanks for this post.


    1. Basically, computer glasses have special tinting on its lenses that prevents the harmful blue light from reaching your eyes. So it can definitely help minimize or even get rid of your dry eyes.

  5. Hi John,
    Ever since I signed up with the Wealthy Affiliate in September 2017, I am always hooked up with the computer and my eyes are getting strained. It is my good time that I came across your post. You have given an unbiased review of computer glasses. Already I am using a reading glass. But I prefer buying a computer glass. My question is can I customize the lens with my prescribed power?

    1. Yes, there are some computer glasses that are prescription ready so you can change the lenses based on what you need.
