I tried blue light glasses to see if they helped with my computer-induced...

As an editor, I spend pretty much my entire day staring at a computer screen. And no, I'm not just "being dramatic."

Every day for roughly nine hours straight, I gaze deeply into a monitor while either writing, editing, or scanning articles carefully for tiny errors in punctuation. It can be exhausting on the eyes to have a job that is entirely dependent on screens. At one point, I was getting migraines nearly every day — an issue a Google search told me was probably due to the blue light emanating from my computer.

Shortly after figuring this out, I decided to take advantage of a pitch I had received from EyeBuyDirect (one of my favorite eyewear startups) about a new lens coating they offered that featured "digital screen protection." It promised to deflect blue light away from the eyes in order to prevent computer headaches, which seemed too good to be true for someone who had been suffering from them for so long.
