And now, with more people than ever working from home, blue light glasses are a must for reducing glare and alleviating eye discomfort when looking at your digital screen for long periods of time.
The longtime fashion blogger behind WeWoreWhat has rarely been spotted without her favorite accessory since she launched her tech company Moe Assist late last year.
Between the glasses' many appearances on both her day-to-day Instagram Stories and as part of outfit shots on her feed, interest in her eyewear has gone through the roof.
Her inexpensive Sojos Cat Eye Blue Light Blocking Glasses Metal Frame Eyeglasses are now a #1 best seller on Amazon, thanks to Bernstein providing swipe up links to purchase.
But, why the need for glasses that specifically block out this type of light?
According to the American Academy of Opthalmology, there is some evidence that light exposure can cause eye damage under certain conditions — particularly as we look at our screens more than ever before — and long hours staring at computers can cause eye strain and decrease blinking resulting in dry, irritated eyes.
One happy reviewer was confident that the glasses have majorly helped her at her 9-5.
"I work in an office and am constantly on the computer. I love the way these look," she said. "I noticed after a few days after wearing them I wasn’t getting the “tension headache” that would normally accumulate behind my left eye EVERY. DAY. I use to think it was due to allergies that I suffer quite a bit from but after forgetting to put them on one day the “tension headache” reappeared. Needless to say, I truly believe these work extremely well at helping your eyes not strain as much with the computer light."
The glasses are available via Amazon Prime in gold, silver, black and rose gold frames. Shop your favorite style above!
