Protect Those Eyeballs With These Chic Blue Light Glasses on Amazon

Cosmopolitan Logo By Maggie Griswold of Cosmopolitan | Slide 1 of 16: Let's get real for a sec: Most of us spend a lot of time looking at screens. Between staring at spreadsheets on a computer all day, binge-watching "Squid Game" on our laptop, and scrolling through viral TikTok videos right before bed, our eyes could def use a break. That's where the magic (okay, the science) of blue-light-blocking glasses comes into play. Blue light—which is a color in the light spectrum you'll see when you look at your phone or computer screen—can actually cause eye strain and keep us from feeling sleepy late at night. Which is, of course, why blocking this particular color of light can be helpful.If you're a lil curious as to how, exactly, a pair of glasses can lessen said eye strain and even help our brains fall asleep more quickly, though, it's actually pretty simple. According to optometrist Barbara L. Horn, OD, American Optometric Association president, "These lenses reduce the amount of blue light entering the eye as well as reduce glare." That's it. That's the tweet.Okay, so there's a little more science behind it—but the moral of the story is that blue light glasses can help keep those peepers in check after a long day of staring at screens. So if you find yourself having trouble looking at your laptop at the end of the day or can't get sleepy after a bedtime Instagram sesh, you might want to invest in a pair. Thankfully, the best blue light glasses on Amazon (obviously) are just a click away. And yes, they're as cute as they are functional. (!) There's no need to sacrifice style just to protect your eyes—which is why you might as well stock up on a few pairs to go with all your outfits.
