The 11 best computer reading glasses for 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 September 2018.

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