Blue light glasses, also known as computer glasses or screen glasses, are specifically designed to protect our eyes against overexposure to the artificial blue light that is emitted by our digital devices. Computer glasses help us to avoid the potential side effects of Computer Vision Syndrome and to ensure that our eyes feel rested after long hours in front of our screens. Actually, it seems that we might spend, on average, 9 hours every single day in front of smartphones, computers, tablets and so on! Undoubtedly an important part of our days in which our eyes are continuously working hard without any type of protection.
Computer glasses stylishly protect and minimize blue light exposure while offering you a better quality of life. If you’re looking to improve your overall wellbeing while reducing the effects of digital eye strain also known as computer vision syndrome, our screen glasses are your best companion! In addition to filtering out the blue light emitted from screens, blue light glasses can offer glare reduction, eye strain reduction, sleep improvement, and better focus.

Our high-quality organic CR-39 lenses block 100% of the Blue Light under 410nm and 45% of the Blue Light on the 410nm - 450nm spectrum.
Barner’s lenses use two technologies: the first one reflects the blue light and the second one absorbs it. The effects are quickly noticeable: the eyes are more rested, relaxed, and more comfortable when using digital devices.
With the digital generation in mind, we have designed the clearest lenses with optimum protection, ideal for people who do color-sensitive work (like graphic designers, video/photo editors or any other profession that needs to see true color).
Our protection against artificial blue light creates a perfect balance between color perception and blue light filtering.
Yes! (And please do 😉). Our lenses are made from high-quality CR39, and are totally safe to wear all day long. You can wear computer glasses all day long if you tend to use digital devices for hours. It is also recommended to wear them late in the evening if you’re watching TV or being exposed to blue light, in order to prevent any disruption to your sleep patterns. Is it recommended to wear blue light glasses when looking at the computer anytime? In order to enjoy the benefits of blue light glasses, it is recommended to wear them every time we are using any type of digital device.
Blue light refers to a portion of the light wavelength that can be seen by human eyes and that is considered to be potentially tiring at the retinal level when exposed to it on a regular basis.
This blue-violet light can be typically found within the 380-500 nm wavelength and is naturally emitted by the sun, and artificially emitted by digital screens. It is however, between the 415 nm to 455 nm where it is considered to be strongest.
Blue light surrounds us in our everyday life. Did you know that the reason we see the sky as being blue is actually because of this type of light? When these shortwaves from the sun strike against air molecules, it creates what our eyes interpret as an infinite blue sky.
Blue light is also responsible for regulating the circadian rhythms of our bodies: the sleep/wake cycles. That’s why, when overexposed to blue light, especially at night, sleep routines can be seriously affected, and computer vision syndrome symptoms might appear
HEV, another technical term for Blue Light, stands for High-Energy Visible Light, because it is a short wavelength which produces the highest amounts of energy. The HEV light can be found near the ultraviolet (UV) end of the spectrum.
One of the main effects of HEV light on people’s vision is that it can cause eye strain and dry eyes after prolonged periods of exposure. This is due to the shorter wavelengths and greater energy of HEV which can be a result of the flashing, rapidly changing glare that our digital devices emit, which forces the eyes to focus harder.
Yes, you can! You can add a single vision prescription (no ADD) to your cart while shopping for an additional 40€. Our lab will then prepare the corrective blue light-blocking lenses according to your unique prescription.
