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!

You can get something called Blue Tech lenses from your eye care professional that can be put in any frame of your choice and even in prescription if needed. This is a more expensive option but the quality is far superior and the tint is more cosmetically appealing. I considered the glasses available on Amazon before I went with the Blue Tech. I am an optician currently working in the eye care field.

Or Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg would have sucked too. Don't think I can fit that many characters into my gps. I feel like I should delete this comment chain though. @Desmond, sorry for hijacking your question.

I do think radiation blocking glasses for using computers is a good idea though. I read a separate study where cataracts were induced in mice by exposing them to light similar too typical prolonged smart phone/tablet usage.

@cdone, Whaaaaat? That doesn't sound like him at all.. He once specifically told me that I would need to drive to lake lanier and swim in the lake there for at least 4 hours a day (srs). It was in the context of him saying I would need to be grounded and have cold therapy/be away from EMFs.

Kruse would write a paragraph of 90% off-topic or eccentric metaphors that don't help and 10% answer.

Lol, too bad Kruse isn't on these boards anymore, he'd write you a paragraph about why those will or won't work, lol. Have you checked out his forums? I'm sure he has some brands he recommends. Can't promise they won't look dorky though, lol.

None of the reviews really talk about blue light blocking for sleep, etc

Those look reasonable and have good reviews.

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:

http://www.amazon.com/Peppers-Eyeware-FS7342-3-Pol...

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.

While this is not for a glasses recommendation, it is specifically for what you want to achieve.

Try these two applications. One neat feature is you can set it to automatically dim the blue and brightness as the sun sets.
