If you’re like most of us who spend long hours in front of a computer, you’ve probably heard about blue light-blocking glasses being the ultimate solution to dry eyes, eye strain, headaches and more.
But let’s be honest, with all the hype surrounding these glasses, it’s easy to wonder if they’re worth investing in or just another gimmick.
As a self-proclaimed blue blocker enthusiast, I have to admit that even I was surprised by what I discovered in my research about blue light and eye strain.
Is it the blue light specifically that’s causing the issue or simply staring at screens in general?
