Blue Light Glasses in Washington, D.C., and Chevy Chase, MD
With our increased use of digital screens, our eyes are exposed to more irritating blue light than ever — which is why we offer solutions to keep your vision comfortable.
What is Blue Light?
Digital screens are a major source of blue-spectrum light, which has higher energy levels than other visible light. Similar to how ultraviolet (UV) rays are harmful in large doses, excessive blue light can overload your eyes, causing discomfort and eye strain. Your body is also used to only seeing blue light during the day, so overexposure to blue light, particularly at night, can negatively impact your sleep cycle and cause ongoing fatigue.
How Do Blue Light Glasses Work?
As a locally owned eye care practice, we’re dedicated to providing curated, customized eyewear to help you love what you see — including making sure your screen time doesn’t hurt your eyes. To prevent symptoms such as eye strain, blurry vision, difficulty focusing, night-time glare while driving, headaches, difficulty sleeping, and dry and irritated eyes, we offer a variety of eyewear options. All of our screen protection lenses are designed to block over 90% of blue light waves for maximum comfort, without impacting your vision.
Our High-Quality Blue Light Eyewear
Whether you wear prescription glasses, prefer contact lenses, or have 20/20 vision and only need blue light protection, we have you covered. Read more about our eyewear options below, and please let us know your preferences when you come in!
Our top-of-the-line blue light blocking lenses are available both with and without a prescription. We’re proud to use Lutina lenses, which build the blue light protection into the lens itself and blocks over 90% of blue light, rather than relying on a coating that may not last as long and only blocks 40% of blue light waves.
You can still protect your eyes from blue light even if you prefer contact lenses! In addition to non-prescription blue light blocking eyeglasses that you can wear with your regular contacts, we carry blue light blocking contact lenses that don’t sacrifice clarity from manufacturers you know and trust.
