Computer Glasses: Yay or Nay? A Product Review

Those who spend hours on end on a computer commonly experience eye strain and dry eyes. The American Optometric Association even dubbed a group of eye and vision-related issues caused by electronics as the Computer Vision Syndrome. Most common symptoms are eyestrain, blurred vision, and headaches commonly caused by the artificial blue light emitted by electronics.

As a professional working woman confined in a cube, I am constantly exposed to my dual monitors emission of blue light approximately 8 hours a day. Though, let’s be honest, it never really dawned on me that this was a problem until I tried glasses specifically made for using computers. I already have carpal tunnel from furiously typing on my computer, I definitely do not need cataracts to add to the list, do I? Luckily, a really good friend of mine with an Engineering background, Jeff, decided to create computer glasses as a personal project and started selling on Amazon. To get this product started, he needed people to review products so he came to me since he knows I’m super judgmental and will give him an honest review =P 

Disclaimer: I received this product for free, and have used it for over a month (~5 weeks). No, I do not get paid if you ordered one. I HIGHLY recommend it!

FIRST IMPRESSION

These glasses arrived at a lightning speed since it’s available via Amazon Prime. It arrived in an envelope and came with a cleaning cloth and glasses case. Immediately, I thought this was a good deal. This product retails at $24.99 (you can get it here). It was worth a shot since it’s not too expensive to try even if I ended up not liking it. Anything to help right? To be honest, the first time I’ve tried these glasses I thought, “Holy shit, these glasses makes me look hideous.” Initially, I thought the frame was too big and it didn’t flatter my face at all. I confided to Jeff about how big the frame is but he did mention design vs. function (engineer’s thought process, am I right)? If the frame is a lot smaller, then it won’t function at its optimum level. Besides, this isn’t a prescription glass to warrant an extremely fancy design and you’re mainly going to use it in front of a computer.  Eventually though, I grew to love these glasses the more I wear it. 

FUNCTIONALITY 5/5

Not gonna lie, I was hesitant to try these glasses for functionality purposes. Will it actually make a difference or is it a scam to convince me to dump my $25? As soon as I’ve tried it though, I was immediately impressed. These glasses feels like you are looking everything through an Instagram filter (ok, trying to connect with Millennials here). Kidding aside, these glasses does block the blue light emitted by the computer. As you can see, the glasses have a faded yellow tint to it. I was VERY impressed with these glasses. I didn't expect for my experience to be exponentially better. I really liked the hue of these glasses. In person, the tint isn't too yellow but actually the perfect level of tint. I really enjoyed these glasses, so much so that I started wearing it when I'm not on a computer (mostly because I like what I see through the glasses).

QUALITY & DESIGN  3.5/5

Design

This kinda makes me look extra nerdy because of how thick the frame is. This was designed with quality and functionality in mind. I  like the product a lot but would rave even more if the wood is a little heavier (better quality) and the frame is a little thinner. Though, keep in mind that enhancing these glasses to satisfy my desired aesthetics will require a lot of manufacturer changes which in turn could increase the cost. Cost in mind, this design definitely rocks! 

Quality

I've had these for about 5 weeks now and they are still sturdy. Product itself feels a little lighter (the wood is lighter) but that can be a good thing for ease and comfort of the product's usability. Again, if we want to have that high quality feel for wood it will warrant a drastic price increase. Since I am not shopping for prescription eyeglasses but rather temporary glasses to ease my electronic usage, this does the job well.



VERDICT

YAY! I HIGHLY recommend this product. You can buy the product here for $24.99. If you've been searching for great computer glasses, I'd say give this one a shot! To those who aren't sure if computer glasses should be beneficial, try it too! I probably would never even try buying computer glasses if not for my friend. But, as soon as I wore these bad boys I cannot go back. It makes looking at numbers/graphs all day so much more bearable. I could not believe how much my eyes feel better. I can honestly that this is one of my must-have things in my handbags. Go order it on Amazon and support a local business. Shout-out to Jeff Buck for creating these amazing glasses! And ladies, he IS single! =P
