Staring at a screen all day harms your eyes. So, naturally, you put on your blue light blocking glasses. But, then squinting at a blurry screen all day only makes matters worse. So, of course, you wear reading glasses to help. But what about the blue light? Well, it turns out that there are reading glasses with blue light filter technology built-in. No need to choose between squinting and pummeling your eyes with blue light. The question, of course, is which blue light reading glasses to choose.

GUNNAR Vs. The Competition

Most people intuitively understand that reading glasses, if they’re comfortable and the right level of magnification, all work pretty much the same. The key question for those stuck reading from digital devices is blue light blocking. Several companies out there make blue light blocking reading glasses. Felix Gray produces blue light blocking reading glasses, as do Pixel and Gamma Ray. Their products, by most accounts, work well enough. The question comes down to the level of protection.

Sunscreen’s job is to protect your skin from the sun, its ability to do so is measured in sun protection factor (SPF). Blue light glasses are meant to protect your eyes from blue light. At GUNNAR we break protection down to Blue Light Protection Factor (BLPF). BLPF measures on a scale from 1-100. The number represents the percentage of blue light blocked by the lenses in question. In a comparison done between the various companies mentioned in the previous paragraph, only Gamma Ray came anywhere close to the level of protection GUNNAR offers. And they only measured close to our lowest level of protection. While Felix Gray blue light glasses may be popular, they don’t offer the level of protection you need. GUNNAR’s patented lens technology offers protection from 35 BLPF, all the way to 95 BLPF (for those using their screens at night).
