Best Blue Light Glasses Found on Amazon – Blue Light Glasses Review

So are you looking for the best blue
light glasses found on Amazon? well I order the top 3 rated Amazon blue
light glasses and we’re gonna review them so that you know which ones are
good and which ones are bad let’s take a look. hey there everyone
this is dr. Joe Allen here from doctor eye health the channel that helps you
learn about the eyes, vision and finding the best vision products, so if you’re
new to the channel consider subscribing also feel free at any time check out the
youtube description below for additional links and information all about the
products that we’re reviewing as well as blue light in general so starting off at
number three the bottom of the barrel our glasses from TIJN or Tijn eyewear
and honestly when I first got these, this is how they came in this weird kind of
plastic case it’s not even like a regular glasses case I’m not even sure
what I’d be using this for but you know it’s it’s kind of funny they all kind of
have the same little advertisement about hey take pictures of our glasses and
post them on Instagram you know thank you or a hundred percent satisfaction
guaranteed all these sort of things well these ones come in you know they’re on
15 maybe up to 20 dollars depending on which frame style you get they
definitely seem like they’re marketed more for women now in terms when I first
got them I was not impressed honestly if you look at these you can actually still
see kind of the defects in the glasses in the non glare or anti reflective
coating on the lenses right away out of the package they looked damaged I was
really just not impressed with it but what can you expect right it’s only a
few bucks now the actual frame itself is kind of large and there’s kind of cool
that way now with the kind of the frame the plastic it’s made out of it’s kind
of a weird matte rubbery feeling which is pretty comfortable it’s lightweight
they kind of have this weird little design on the front it kind of looks
like wings but honestly for you know 15 bucks for this type of frame it seems
like about a $15 pair of glasses these far as the lenses themselves and
honestly as a doctor that makes the real big difference for me you know the frame
has got style and it’s got comfort but the real quality of the lenses that’s
where the money should be going and honestly yeah these have much more left
to be desired at least they have some type of a non glare coating on the
lenses themselves however it does seem like they’re just very poor quality the
plastic is very cheap it looks like it’s gonna
pop out of the frame in any moment and the real non-glare anti-reflective
coating again came out of the package looking like it’s damaged as far as it’s
blue light protecting quality it does have just a slight yellow tint to it as
most blue light blocking glasses do and honestly wearing them I don’t find them
that comfortable and if anything the lenses just they have so much kind of
debris or glare coming off of them it’s almost more distracting than actually
just looking at the screen without the glasses so yeah these are kind of junk
so on to number two these are glasses from Anrri or Anrri, I’m not sure how to
say it at least the packaging starting off looks way much better than the
previous one you know opening it up it actually has a case it actually actually
you know these aren’t too bad but I’ve seen I’ve seen other companies online
retailers have a very similar case I think it all comes from kind of the same
manufacturer they just print put their own name on it you know you open this
one at least this one comes with things like a lens cloth it actually comes with
this cool like blue light protecting card I’m not sure how real how accurate
these things are or exactly how they’re made but I know that it’s not just
really blue light because you can shine a little blue light on here and you can
see how it gets darker they actually you can the whole idea is so that they
include this so that you can compare it yourself with the lenses and then you
can post it on your social media and then that brand can then sell more of
their glasses as far as this card if it’s actually kind of funny because if
you take it outside and you leave it in the sunlight it’ll actually activate
because of the natural blue light coming with the Sun however these little lights
that I’ve actually tested it myself they actually activate UV lenses like
Transition brand lenses so that means this a little blue light be careful
because it actually has type of UV light coming from it and if you put something
on your skin or directly into your eyes that could actually hurt you but at
least for the frame here from honoré which is what I’m gonna call it here
these frames by far in terms of just the frame quality and design and feel best
frame design that I’ve seen of all of these online kind of Amazon glasses now
it actually is comfortable they have kind of this nice little extra rubbery
feel for grip on the actual on the sides it’s got a wider set lens which is good
again because you have extras all that blue light come from different or
directions in terms of the lens quality though the lens quality looks just like
the previous TIJN lenses you know again the plastic is very very just low
quality and the anti-reflective really is much left to be desired again as far
as the lens coming out of the package they’re certainly not damaged like the
previous ones but they actually look you know you know they look fairly clear
again wearing them at least they are very comfortable in light weight but
yeah they just the quality the lens lets me down I can already tell that the
anti-reflective on here is not that good at quality it doesn’t have any sort of a
static free or smudge free sort of coatings built into the non glare
actually again when wearing them I feel like I’m getting more glare off of a
computer screen or lights than I do just without looking through it new glasses
should almost augment or make your vision feel easier better looking
through them rather than making it feel like you’re looking through a snowstorm
but at least in terms of the package quality the frame design and kind of the
extra little insert that’s kind of cool especially for just being in all 15 to
20 bucks number one and probably the best Amazon
blue light glasses are from Cyxus or Cyxus – I’m not sure how to say these
names who’s making these up but again it comes in a good packaging again these
are the ones I found on Amazon they do have their own website and actually it’s
kind of funny they say not just eyewear for their brand actually if you go to
their website they are just eyewear so I don’t know what’s up with that but again
you open up the packaging and again it comes little lens case it’s got their
branding on it it actually comes again with a little tiny lens cloth it’s got
kind of a this is actually pretty cool they have kind of this neat little kind
of business card thing it’s kind of kind of cute it’s got little eyeglasses a
little mustache on it why they include Sudoku I am not really sure what they’re
doing the fat but yeah you open up the packaging you look at the frame and wait
hold on a minute do you see this little branded little
winged thing again this is the same type of frame design that tij n had I bet I
don’t I don’t think they’re the same exact brand but I bet they’re using this
same manufacturer for their frames this Isis brand as well as the tij n if you
don’t know a lot of the different brands of kind of the cheaper more affordable
frames and things like that they’re all made from the same
somewhere in Asia that you know these these manufacturers to say oh I can make
of brand I’ll just buy the cheapest type of frames I can find it’s all made from
the same manufacturer and then they just put their own lenses into it at least
for the frame design it’s kind of the same it’s not really the best build at
least they are kind of a nice matte black they’re actually somewhat light to
where they actually fit fairly decent but why these glasses rank is number one
here for me for Amazon blue light glasses is because of the lens again the
lens matters most to me this lens actually is very clear it’s actually
made of a decent type of plastic and the non glare coating is way superior again
it’s around 20 bucks or so but you know what’s kind of cool is this glare free
protection it’s really tough to see but if you look really close and inspect it
they actually have their name their brand name ingrained in the non glare
coating I’ve never seen that before not just with like glasses on Amazon but
even regular glasses some type of lenses will have a little laser at markings
telling us optically what kind of power or something like that is in the glasses
but this actually has it somehow embedded in the glare free coating how
did they do that I have never seen that before
that actually kind of surprised me but in terms again the lens quality again
there’s a little yellow hue to it just like every blue light glasses but these
ones actually look fairly good I bet you can even see it in the reflection of the
glasses lenses here it’s not as harsh of a reflection of the light that I’m using
to take this video so even though the frame design is very similar to the
lower quality tij and glasses at least the lenses in this Isis brand are far
superior so as far as the Amazon blue light glasses if you’re gonna go with
them the lenses at least in this brand are probably the best next I have a
bonus frame I was gonna review here these are actually you’ve ex lenses made
by Honeywell these somebody else was commenting I sent another youtuber
review kind of these blue light glasses and I thought it was kind of funny no
this is our giant orange glasses right you put these on you look kind of
ridiculous but it’s hilariously enough they are marketed as basically a type of
what sky / blue light blocking computer glasses
however the funny thing is if you actually look inside the box and read
the directions it says do not use for any active
other than shooting or for archery these are not meant for blue light glasses on
the computer even the manufacturer states that’s not what they’re for
they’re meant for sharp shooting for people who are in like trap shooting and
other kind of precision archery sports however of course they are a very dark
orange color and so yeah they’re gonna block out all the wavelengths of blue
light however they make your vision super orange it does kind of help when
like looking outside and especially if it’s kind of dark or overcast out it
actually does make things pop out but it’s if honestly I would never use these
while on the computer but I honestly don’t doubt that there’s somebody out
there maybe even wanting your co-workers who are using these type of things while
on the computer in fact if you know somebody who’s using kind of these
yellow orange bright orange some classes or lenses go ahead and let me know I’d
love to hear that people are actually trying to use these things so if you’re
in that market looking on Amazon to buy blue light glasses then now at least you
know which ones are really good which ones are bad but I always keep in mind
that some of the best products you’re gonna find for blue light glasses are
usually worth spending the extra money go to your optical talk to your doctor
see what they can do for you for prescription ones otherwise again
there’s other kind of brands online that you can find as well so why health

eye on it we’ll talk to you soon


Question of the Day! Which was your favorite part of the video? Are there any other vision products you would like to see reviewed?

Uvex is what I get from my employer not a blue light blocker though, just regular safety glasses. They're some of the only non prescription safety glasses that dont have a wavy-ness to the lenses that distort my vision.

So tempted to get laser eye surgery. Here in the UK IV been for a consultation and they said I'm suitable for it. Have you ever heard of LASIK iDesign? It's more expensive than standard LASIK.

I also want to know why Doctors and opticians have not done laser surgery themselves? Is there a hidden negative behind it?

UVEX for the win lol…it's midnight and I'm wearing them now…Uvex actually blocks peripheral blue light also

I have a question which is the following:

How do the glasses manage to still show blue light but also protect your eyes from it?

I have a question.

I’m struggling to sleep and get headaches when out in the sun. I don’t need glasses, but the amount of time I spend on my phone iPad etc could be the reason. do you think it would be worth me investing in a pair of these due to the amount of time I spend on my phone?
Thank you x

I get all of my glasses from eyebuydirect with a blue-light filter. Do you think you'll do any comparison videos on those vs glassesusa and other cheaper off-brand prescription and nonprescription glasses websites

I have a pair of glasses similar to the ones reviewed here, but they became foggy after a while. Would you happen to know a proper way to clean this sort of fog from them? Also great video by the way 🙂

the HEALTH LISTS Blue Light Blocking Reading Glasses for Better Sleep – Amber Orange Computer Filter Anti Eye Strain Lenses by THL Sleep (Black)

So if the UVEX as you stated at 9:13, that they will be blocking all the blue lights, why NOT use them on computers? I mean if the orange color don't bother the person but the glasses blocks the blue lights, what's wrong with that? Or is there a bigger problem using the UVEX glasses that you did not mentioned on the video?

You bagged the Honeywell glasses, {UVEX Skyper] but are you right? This is from Honeywell's own website on those glsses. Available in wide range of lens tints, including SCT (Spectrum Control Technology), including SCT-Orange which filters wavelenghts including blue, protecting against light emitted by UV lamps. See Lens Tint Technology brochure. The reference to archery I feel may be for eye protection against splinters and the like. I would certainly trust Honeywell over the brands you promote.

Can you wear it all the time because I had my exam today and they added it on my prescription I’m nearsighted

I’m glad I found this video…I ordered cyxus and was messing around with the laser a bit and it occurred to me that I might have hurt my eye…how freaked out should I be? 😅Or just let it go? It was a few seconds and nothing is wrong with my vision 🙏🏻

Hey for the Cyxus do they sell same glasses but slightly bigger??.. I have A somewhat big head so I would need glasses that are like 10mm longer

I actually use the Uvex, lol Reason being is that if you look in Uvex's website you can find a spectral analysis chart for all their tints, that show you what wavelengths are blocked/passed.

Thank you for all the information. I'm surprised not a lot of eye doctors agree to this blue light filter information or even bother to learn about it. This year I got myself a Samsung Galaxy note 9 and notice I had severe head aches and even burning sensation in my eyes. It got to the point that I went one whole week not opening the window shades and no screen completely and my eyes got better. I did notice that if I use my computer, my eyes are fine and even watch TV is fine but the moment I look at my phone no more than 5 seconds, I can really feel the burning and the back of my eyes hurting. That's when I knew it's only my phone causing me so much pain. So I went to Stanton to get glasses and they said blue light filter glasses are just a marketing thing. I got a uv coat on my glasses but did not work so Stanton lied to me that it blocks all rays.

I also mentioned to pediatric eye doctor about blue light since my son was there for his eye exam and he said the same thing that it's not a big deal. Yes it is a big deal and I'm glad you're bringing up this information. I bought myself blue light filter glasses (cyxus brand) from Amazon and they worked! But over time, this phone of mine still kills my eyes, and turned out that I'm not the only one with pain in my eyes. I'd say buy a different brand or use the down grade models such as Samsung J7. Again, thank you so much for your information!

If I am able to save enough cash this Xmas, I would buy myself an efficient pair of eyeglass with all the combined layers approved by you, Doc! Thank you vewi much.

UV light is not blue light. Any glasses clainming to protect your eye from UV light are useless since LCD screens do not emit UV light, also UV light does not reach the retina. On the other hand, if you find any glasses capable to protect your eye from high-energy visible (HEV) light, that's a totally different story.

Hi, I am using computer from 8 to 9 hours a day, which is best for me Blue cut lens or Photochromic lens.
Which provides greater protection?

Funny thing that I bought those glasses to use it for blue light protection, but due to very orange color and super strong blue light filter (you cannot see blue color) I stopped using them, however I found that they are very cool for shooting games like pubg. In pubg you don't care much about color but glasses makes game more contrast and easier to spot target. Well technically I use them during my shooting sessions guess I'm fine.

Ha-ha! I'm literally wearing the UVEX orange safety glasses while watching your video and I'm too old to care what I look like. 🙂 They were recommended by consumer reports. The article said they were the only one of 3 that actually blocked the blue light in their tests. I will say that after 2 days of wearing them, I noticed some improvement in my eyes – less blurry vision when reading. Now I'm out looking for blue blocking readers for my 87 year old father. Any suggestions?

True Dark and Blu Blox are the only two I would ever recommend. The owners of the companies did a lot of research.

I bought Ocushield Anti-Blue light clip on glasses : They give a lot of weight to you glasses, but they definitely help with eye strain and stinging. They are from Europe, but it's not so bad. They are designed by an optometrist and so far are pretty good. I may buy their glasses and use them for the computer as my regular glasses are progressives with three distances and it can be annoying. I work in a place that has many LED lights, as many places do, but I also use computers a lot at home. I do wish they helped with visual snow, but I don't see a difference. I think I need to find the fountain of youth because getting old is not helping

I use the Uvex glasses especially watching tv at night or in a rather bright florescent environment
I like them and so does my wife and the blue light doesn't keep us up at night they are very effective

the brand name in the lenses we call it laser mark, actually fog mark is better and more popular. both marks will not hurt the coating of lenses. it is easy to make it. in my youtube channel, you can find it how we make fog mark lens.

Hey Doc! Can these help with night glare, too? I need glasses that go over regular eye glasses that help with glare from on-coming cars. Thank you!

Felix Grey are a wee bit more expensive then these cheapo Amazon brands but I think they are well worth the money. BIG thumbs up for FELIX GREY BLUE LIGHT GLASSES

They just gave me eye strain when I used them & made it worse. Better just filtering the blue light on your PC monitor or smart TV.

What is your opinion of Cocoons Specialty Lenses for Night Driving / Computer use?

Hi Dr Allen, thanks for the review. I am a migraine sufferer and started using those orange-tinted glasses February this year, migraines did not stop coming but they not as severe and often I manage without taking medication. Also not as often as before. there are several major changes in how my body started operating since February. It is quite remarkable I could say. I wear them every night 6pm till 9pm , I love the dimmed atmosphere in the evening and especially watching films in "sepia colors" I could not do without them. I now consider trying migralenses that are dark green to see if they help with migraines any better.

Eyes strain is not being caused by blue light. It's being caused by extended screen time without taking breaks. Absolutely shameless to promote this bunk in any way. These expensive products are being marketed with wild claims that arent supported by a shred of evidence. The best way to prevent screen related strain is the 20/20/20 rule: every 20 minutes, look away from the screen for 20 seconds, focusing on something that's 20 feet away.

I'm using the UVEX right now, which is why this video caught my attention. I love them! They block out the glare and and brightness of my screen. Getting prescription blue blocker lenses in deep orange tint is goal that I am still working on, if you have a suggestion please let me know.

Save your money, especially an eye doctor
Why you don't need blue light lenses: Hidden camera investigation (Marketplace)

So, these glasses are suppose to protect me from the fluorescent light that comes from LCD screens that comes with computer and camera dslr screens???

You don't need any of these. Nowadays if you wear glasses you will simply have blue light protection built into the lenses. If you don't wear prescription glasses you can still get a clear lens without prescription with built in blue light protection.

@DoctorEyeHealth , I was wondering if maybe by chance there might be some ((clip on blue light blockers)) out there and if there is could you post a link / review on them – thank you !

Those orange Honeywell lenses are sometimes called "shooting glasses" because yes, yellow or orange is suppose to increase contrast for shooters. They were also popular in ski goggles for overcast days, same reasons.

it still catches me off guard when people dont realize china hasnt just made an art out of automation theyve created an entire new industry/product called cheap china plastic stuff. the 2 glasses with the wing symbols were probably made by the same machine not manufacturer/factory. 80's propaganda echos I guess. also guy in vid is way to close his eyes look like blue frog eyes.

I'm using the 1.25 diopter since I view my large screens from about 3 feet away. they are sold as two pair, and are a great buy.

I always went to the eye doctor saying I get dry eyes and sharp pain to bright light and they never once prescribed me blue light filter wow lol ok

I use the orange blue blockers from Northland. And they have saved me no more headaches eye strain and dry eyes. I love them the clear ones didn’t work for me.

On the CBC’s YouTube channel, there’s a piece about blue light coating on glasses, and how you don’t need them. All you need to do is rest your eyes from 20 seconds every 20 minutes.

Btw, you need to be more picky about who you buy from on Amazon these days. There are so many random Chinese merchants selling the same products, even using the same exact product images. I try to buy from anywhere but China, if I can.

You should take a look at Sightline Readers. They have a great pair of Multifocal reading glasses with AR coating lenses in an optical quality frame. FREE ! Don’t need to pay extra to anti blue light function when you buy prescription lenses ,buy prescription glasses with Free anti blue light glasse lenses

Do you have a video on he best sunglasses? My eyes are REALLY sensitive to light indoors or sunlight. I have used Ray Bans and Maui Jim's but find the sun almost blinding. Any suggestions?

What can you say about a documentation of CBC that blue light glasses are not beneficial and just used for marketing strategy.

The test card is clearly a SCAM! It gets discoloured by the UV of the light, not by blue light. The glasses clearly don't block blue light, only UV. The card is used to trick into thinking it block blue light, in reality it isn't or at best, very-very little of it.

Dr. Allen, how about this report on how much of a scam blue light glasses are? It seems that you swallowed to BLUE pill.

you should review these. Not as cheap as ones you reviewed but likely light years better
