Can You Wear Blue Light Glasses With Contacts?

Can You Wear Blue Light Glasses With Co

In the digital age we live in, it isn’t uncommon for us to have several devices within easy reach. Phones, tablets, laptop screens, computer monitors, TVs, smartwatches, even some refrigerators use digital screens these days.

We love our screens (maybe a bit too much) but do they love us?

What is Blue Light?

Digital screens emit blue light, a dangerous light frequency that can damage the retina. Sometimes referred to as high-energy visible (HEV) light, excessive blue light exposure has been shown to be harmful to our eyes.

According to an article published by UW Medicine (University of Washington), you may notice some or all of the following issues if you spend a lot of time in front of digital screens:

  • Eyestrain
  • Headaches
  • Dry eyes
  • Sleep loss
  • Macular degeneration

The more time we spend looking at our screens the more likely we are to notice short term and even more worrisome, long term effects.

Fortunately for our eyes, technological advancements in protective eyewear have led to a helpful solution.

Blue light glasses, sometimes called computer glasses, are designed to filter out the harmful blue light that does so much damage.

We at VS Eyewear have your eyes covered.

With over 1000 frame styles to choose from, including many from high-end brands you know and love, our computer glasses will protect your eyes.

“But what if I prefer to wear contacts”?

If you enjoy the freedom of wearing contact lenses instead of prescription glasses it would be quite ridiculous to take them out every time you spend time looking at a digital screen, wouldn’t it?

That’s where “Plano” blue light glasses come in handy. 

With these non-prescription lenses, you get the eye saving benefit of blue light blocking technology without having to take out your contacts.

The best of both worlds, right?

So yes, to answer your question, it is perfectly fine to wear blue light glasses with contacts.
