Hello everyone, now let’s talk about something very important: Glasses, especially blue light glasses. I’m wearing glasses about 3-4 years now. My eyes are not that bad, thank god, but I have definitely had some issues with headache and tiredness throughout the past years. I work with a laptop and my phone every day, which is really bad for my eyes. This summer I experienced my headache getting worse, like having a really bad headache after working for 4-6 hours. After some research, I decided to invest in some new glasses containing blue light technology.
Blue light technology
Even if it has not yet been proven that the screens of modern computers, tablets and smartphones emit enough blue light to harm our eyes. It is certain that blue-violet radiation affects our eyes, depending on the duration or intensity with which we look at it.
Glasses with blue light filter technology let you relax your eyes. A coating ensures that short-wave blue light is filtered. And this also reduces the so-called stray light, which worsens our focus and makes our eyes tired.
You can use blue light glasses with or without prescription.
After browsing different opticians to find the perfect frame for me, I decided to have a look at the Mister Spex Store in Bochum. They have a big variety of different frames from different designers and a very competent team. My personal fave was a frame from their house brand Ultralight Classics by Mister Spex in a transparent colour. Then I had a quick eyesight test and specified some other extras I wanted. The glasses were then sent to my home a few days later and I could have them adjusted at any time in the store or a partner optician.
All in all, I am very happy with the way the glasses look and the blue light filter. Because of the lightweight frame, I can wear them all day without noticing and the blue light filter definitely helps with my headaches. I really recommend Mister Spex if you are looking for a new pair of glasses!
