I am trying to find some glasses to wear at night that will block the blue light from my phone, etc. The only problem is that I would like a pair that doesn't make me look like a total nerd. Does anyone know if these glasses would do the trick??
Also, does anyone own a pair they can swear by that don't look too rediculous? Thank you!

I got a pair of BluBlocker Eagle sunglasses on amazon and they're incredible. I put them on in my house to reduce the amount of blue light I am exposed to from lights, Mac, iPhone, TV, and even street and car lights when I go out at night. Wearing them at night makes everything look like an Amber version of Tron. I also use F.Lux on my computer, AND I cut pieces of Amber plastic to put over my iPhone and iPad screens (I got them as binder dividers at my local office supply store for under $6).

This research from The Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-michael-j-breus/blue-light-sleep_b_3900607.html) claims blocking blue light not only reduce eyestrain but also helps sleep. So I think the most important is that if it can block the blue-light effectively. The lenses I just bought from T'aime Opticks http://www.halovis.com can block 97% of blue light!!! Here is the video on YTB describes how it work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmUebEu3GzE
AFAIK the ridiculous looking safety glasses are the most effective. You might be able to find something that looks better but you'll probably pay an arm and a leg for something less effective but more fasionable.
see this thread as well:
Especially the question that shows a spectrum. Use that to see how effective the pair you've chosen is.
If you search around on amazon for orange sunglasses, a few hits will show up. I picked up mine from woot (amazon owned) a year back, the brand is Peppers. Not the same model, but similar:
But the ugly UVEX construction safety glasses is the most effective pair I've seen so far.
Or, you could, you know, not use the iphone, tablet, or TV a couple of hours before bedtime.
You don't want a light yellow lens, those won't do the trick.
