What Are Blue Light Blocking Glasses?

Blue light glasses or computer screen glasses are a type of glasses equipped with a blue light filter that blocks or absorbs blue light emitted from digital screens.  Unlike traditional computer glasses used by those with poor eyesight, blue light blocking computer glasses are utilized by those who seek to reduce eye strain caused by continuous exposure to digital screens regardless of vision.
