Non-prescription Blue Light Glasses
The best way to avoid eye fatigue.
Blue light blocking glasses are specifically-purposed eyeglasses developed to be used when looking at digital screens. They help reduce eye strain, improve sleep cycles and prevent headaches and migraines, but can we wear blue light glasses without prescription?
The answer is yes! And we’ll tell you everything you need to know in this article.
Blue Light Glasses without Prescription: why they should become part of your everyday life
We spend most of our days exposed to the artificial light of screens: when we watch TV, when we write emails at work, when we scroll through news updates and so on.
We’re definitely more connected to our digital devices than we‘ve ever been before!
Technology has become a huge part of our daily lives. For the vast majority, an essential part of our routines: how difficult is it to spend 24 hours without looking at a digital screen?
We all know it! We don’t give ourselves a break from our digital screens, which means that our eyes are constantly working overtime. We overexpose them to the artificial blue light emitted by all of our technological devices.
The problem comes when we absorb too much blue light, which can lead to serious and potentially long-term negative effects on our health and well-being.
That’s exactly when non-prescription blue light glasses come in handy!
What are non-prescription blue light Glasses?
Non-prescription blue light glasses are computer glasses specifically designed for everyone: even if you’ve never used glasses in your life.
Their aim is to shield our eyes from overexposure to HEV light (High-Energy Visible light) which can lead to the increasingly common Computer Vision Syndrome, or the aptly named Digital Eye Strain.
If we don’t protect our eyes when using digital devices, we might start to experience a wide variety of unpleasant symptoms: such as headaches, red eyes, dry eyes, neck and shoulder pain, and even difficulties falling asleep. Does this sound familiar?
Blue light glasses are extremely efficient at reducing our eyes’ exposure to light that is emitted from our digital screens, thereby enhancing our ability to use digital devices for extended periods of time without experiencing such negative side-effects.
Anyone can benefit from them: regardless of age, the daily hours spent in front of technology, or even the requirements of each individuals’ profession.
Barner’s blue light glasses are available without prescription (although you can also add your own prescription, if necessary), which means that the only thing you’d need to decide on is which frame looks perfect on you!
Our high-quality organic CR-39 lenses efficiently shield and take care of our eyes: they block 100% of the blue light under 410nm and 45% of the blue light on the 410nm – 450nm spectrum.
How do non-prescription blue light glasses protect?
Barner’s lenses use two technologies: the first reflects the blue light and the second absorbs it. The benefits are quickly felt: our eyes are noticeably more rested, relaxed and comfortable even when using digital devices for extended periods of time.

Is it good to wear non-prescription blue light glasses all day?
As we’ve mentioned before, blue light blocking glasses prevent the negative side effects of excessive blue light that our eyes would ordinarily be exposed to through digital screen usage and in our everyday lives.
We recommend wearing them whenever you’re using digital devices!
Because the natural filters in our eyes aren’t strong enough to protect from over-exposure to blue light, everyone is susceptible to excessive blue light exposure, whether you ordinarily wear eyeglasses, or not.
Did you know, for example, that too much blue light, especially late at night, can negatively affect your sleep patterns and there are probably far more sources of artificial blue light in our houses than we might think!
Even if your eyesight is 20/20, blue light blocking glasses can be worn as “screen glasses” when using our digital devices to enjoy the long-term benefits of improved eye health and general wellbeing.
For those who do usually wear prescription glasses, Barner’s range can be customized to your usual prescription. Although your ordinary prescription glasses may have the ability to prevent some of the negative side effects of excess screen usage such as eye strain, ordinary prescription glasses don’t have the technology that is specifically designed to prevent excessive blue light exposure.
Through wearing your ordinary prescription glasses when using your digital devices, you are potentially placing yourself at risk of further eye damage and the other health implications associated with excessive blue light exposure.
