Computer Glasses vs. Reading Glasses

Do you need computer glasses or reading glasses? If you're someone who spends a lot of time in front of a computer working, playing online video games, reading books, or grading papers, you may have considered the benefits of wearing computer or reading glasses.

Continue on to learn the differences between computer glasses and reading glasses, plus how to choose the right frame, lens, and style for your needs.

Why buy computer glasses?

Computer glasses, also known as blue light blocking glasses, are designed to reduce eye strain and fatigue caused by prolonged exposure to digital screens.

These lenses are optimized to provide a comfortable viewing experience for computer use. They accomplish this by filtering out blue light, which has been linked to disrupted sleep patterns and other health issues.

Are computer glasses the same as reading glasses?

No, computer glasses are not the same as reading glasses.

While they look similar, computer glasses have lenses that are specifically designed for use with digital screens. These lenses have a blue light blocking lens coatings to filter the harmful blue light emitted by computer screens.

Should computer glasses be stronger than reading glasses?

In some cases, people who already wear corrective lenses for distance vision may need to use different magnifications for reading glasses and computer glasses.

For example, someone may need a higher magnification power for reading glasses to see up-close text. Meanwhile, that same person could need a lower magnification for computer glasses to reduce eye strain and improve their ability to see the computer screen at a comfortable distance.

Ultimately, it's best to consult an eye doctor or an optician who can recommend the appropriate prescription or magnification for your specific needs.

What are the best computer glasses?

The best computer glasses depend on your personal needs and preferences. However, there are a few key features to look for when choosing computer glasses.

  • Look for computer glasses with lenses specifically designed for digital screens. These lenses are optimized for filtering out the blue light emitted from your computer screen, helping reduce eye strain and fatigue.
  • Consider getting glasses with a blue light filtering lens coating. This filter can help protect your eyes from the harmful effects of blue light emitted by computer monitors and smartphone screens.
  • Choose a frame that fits comfortably and securely on your face. This can reduce the eye strain and prevent headaches and other discomfort.

Why buy reading glasses?

Different from computer glasses, reading glasses are typically prescribed to help people with presbyopia. Presbyopia is a condition where your eyes gradually lose their ability to focus on nearby objects as you age. Reading glasses have lenses that are designed to magnify text, making it easier to read.

Can I use reading glasses while on a computer?

While you can certainly use reading glasses while on a computer, they may not provide the best experience.

Reading glasses are designed for close-up reading, and unless they have a blue light filtering lens coating, they can cause eye strain and fatigue. This could be a big concern if you spend a lot of time working on a computer.

If you need to use reading glasses while on a computer and don’t have access to computer glasses or readers with a blue light blocking lens coating, consider using a pair with a lower magnification. The lower magnification can help reduce the strain on your eyes and make it easier to focus on your screen.

If you have children that wear reading glasses and frequently use digital devices for schoolwork or gaming, we highly recommend using reading glasses with our blue light blocking lens coating to avoid the potential negative effects blue light has on one's health.
