What is Blue Light Coating?

Is this the first time you hear of blue light coating? Let's dive deep into the meaning. Although some blue light blocking glasses do not require special coating, there are blue light filter glasses with a unique lens called blue light coating. Their primary role is to deviate blue light coming from digital screens from entering your eyes.

You might ask yourself: Is blue light coating worth it? The lens coating on the blue light filter glasses is barely noticeable. But, it does have a powerful effect. Besides the digital protection, the blue light coating glasses can shield your eyes from the blue light from the sun and artificial lights. For more information, you can check out our prescription lens guide.

Why is it Important to Have Blue Light Coating?

If you work remotely or spend long hours scrolling through social media without blue light filter glasses, you probably have experienced headaches, migraines, eye fatigue and even insomnia. In addition, constant and prolonged exposure to blue light will make it hard for you to see other types of light. As a result, your vision will be ruined in the short and long term.
According to various studies, subjects with symptoms of eyestrain have noticed a significant improvement after adding a blue light coating to their glasses. So, now that you know what blue light coating is, we're here to answer your second question: Does blue light coating on glasses work? Again, the answer is simple: YES.

Here are five reasons why blue light coating on your blue light filter glasses is essential:

  1. Reduce side effects of long-term digital screen use.
  2. Keep your eyes energized during work.
  3. Being anti-reflective.
  4. Reduce the intensity of random glares and bright reflections.
  5. Slow the age-related vision deterioration.

How to Tell if Glasses Have Blue Light Coating?

Do you think you already own a pair of blue light coating glasses but want to double-check? We know there's a lot of hype around blue light coating since most of the hours spent are in front of digital screens. But, the good news is you can be your own judge and check if you have a blue light coating on prescription glasses. So, there are two simple tests you can do from the comfort of your home.

1. Check The Light Reflecting Off your Clear Lenses

You might think you need to get many things to do your home test. But to find out if there is the blue light coating on your blue light glasses, hold your lenses up to a light source and check the colours reflecting off of the glasses frames. If you see the colour blue, you got yourself a pair of blue light filter glasses. However, this simple test does not indicate how much blue light is being blocked. On average, your blue light glasses should emit about 30%.

2. Hold up Your Clear Lenses to The Sky

Take advantage of the sunny day and go outside to test your prescription eyeglasses or computer glasses. If your lenses have a blue light coating, the sky's blue should look yellowish through your clear lenses. It's not noticeable, but your clear lenses have a slight yellow tint when exposed on a bright day with a blue background. If that's the case, then you got yourself a pair of blue light lens coating glasses.
