The 10 best computer reading glasses to help reduce eye strain

Whether we like it or not, we’re living in a digital world. Not literally, of course, but we all probably spend more time reading from a computer screen than we’d like to admit — or is good for our eyes. With smartphone use, computer use, and tablets becoming commonplace at home and at work, you may have started to notice some of the negative side effects of technology.

Eye strain, headaches, and dry eyes are all symptoms of too much exposure to blue light. Though the obvious solution to this problem is to limit screen time, that just isn’t a viable option for those of us who put in computer work day in and day out. If you’re looking for a way to protect yourself from screen glare and blue light without having to compromise your digital lifestyle, what you need is a pair of non-prescription computer reading glasses. Lucky for you, we found some of the best available for June 2019.

If you’re looking for a little extra style, however, we have this awesome list of the most stylish blue light blocking glasses around.

Truvision Anti-reflective Computer Reading Glasses (2 Pack) — $30

Truvision computer reading glasses

If you’re looking to grab a pair of reading glasses for your computer, why not get a second set as a spare? These Truvision Readers may not be prescription, but their anti-reflective coating and blue-tinted lenses will help you filter out blue light and avoid computer vision syndrome without having to go to an eye doctor. If you are already suffering from Presbyopia, these computer reading glasses can also assist with blurred vision caused by too much screen time. However, if you aren’t sure whether you’re actually experiencing computer eye strain or not, you should get yourself an eye exam to see what’s up — you may very well need a prescription.

You can pick up two pairs of this computer eyewear for just $30 on Amazon and pick up a cleaning cloth or two while you’re at it.

With multiple levels of magnification, these glasses are great for reading on the computer, reading on our phone, and for just about every other type of reader out there.

You can pick up these computer eyeglasses for just $13 on Amazon.

Cyxus Anti Blue computer glasses — $20

While these Cyxus computer glasses may seem just like any of the others on this list, there is one fundamental difference — a lifetime warranty.
