Can I Wear My Blue Light Blocking Glasses Instead of Sunglasses Outdoors?

Posted by benjamin koren on

Blue light blocking glasses by Twelve are designed to protect your eyes from the harmful blue light emitted by electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, and computers. While these glasses are not designed to be worn as sunglasses and do not have tinted lenses, they do offer 100% UV protection, which means they can still be beneficial to wear outside.

Exposure to UV light is known to cause damage to the eyes over time, such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Wearing glasses with 100% UV protection, like those from Twelve, can help protect your eyes from these harmful effects of UV light.

In addition, the blue light blocking feature of the glasses can help reduce the strain on your eyes caused by the bright sunlight. Many people find that bright light, including sunlight, can cause headaches, eye strain, and other symptoms of digital eye strain. Blue light blocking glasses can help reduce these symptoms and make it more comfortable to be outside for long periods of time.

It's important to note that these glasses should not be worn as replacement of sunglasses, they may not provide the same level of sun glare protection. But they can be beneficial in a way that they are offering protection against both UV and blue light, making your outdoor experience comfortable.
