Could I wear these glasses to prevent eye fatigue?
An_258055 posted:
A few weeks ago, I had eye fatigue from being on the computer for too long (at least that's what my ophthalmologist said) and I came across these glasses a few months ago and I though that they could prevent future eye fatigue. The website says that they do prevent eye fatigue along with some other things that are brought on by long term computer usage. I read some reviews, and all the people said that the glasses helped them, but could they cause any harm to my eyes. I never had any serious eye problems in the past. Even my ophthalmologist said that my eyes are completely fine.
Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
As long as you have had a complete ophthalmologist exam to make sure you don't have a need for prescription glasses, dry eye or any other specifically treatable cause of excessive computer viewing fatigue, its OK to try optical aids such as computer glasses or tinted computer screen covers. No a lot of science or evidence behind these glasses or covers but they may be subjectively helpful. These devices will not harm your eyes.
