Two Weeks of Wearing Eyezen Blue Blocker Glasses – Eyezen Review

After two weeks of wearing the Eyezen Blue Block Glasses, this is how I feel and think about them – Eyezen Review

A few weeks ago I talked about the Eyezen Blue Blocker Glasses from EyeBuy Direct. The Eyezen glasses block blue light that is emitted from digital screen and boasts reducing eye fatigue. This is not an entirely new concept, but one that is recently blowing up in terms of research and data. I told my optometrist about it and he was ecstatic because he recently just received information on the subject and products to help out. In short, digital screens emit an unnatural light, while not directly harmful to human eyes, does require extra effort to process. The extra effort ages our eyes, and also cause other side effects like headaches, drowsiness, and some research even says chemical reactions to the body that affect our moods. Take into consideration the number of screens we interact with constantly: phone, computer screens, televisions, tablets, menus at fine dining establishments (okay fast food restaurants), billboards, and even the LCD screens in cars, digital screens that emit blue light are everywhere. People react differently to it, but the research does show that constant exposure to blue light does age our eyes.

-A quick side note before I go into my Eyezen review, I work a day job where I spend all day looking at computer screens or mobile devices for 8 hours a day and spend my 1-hour lunch break playing Overwatch on PC. Outside of my day job you have me here, which is about 2-3 hours a day, in front of a computer, or I’m working on side projects where I’m usually editing, again on a computer. I easily spend 12 hours a day behind a screen. The eyestrain and headaches are real. But back to my Eyezen review-

Two weeks ago I began wearing Eyezen Glasses. The Eyezen were not my first pair of blue blocker glasses, but they were immediately an improvement from my previous set. My previous set were basically yellow sunglasses that tinted everything yellow. It did seem to relax my eyes a bit, but they were essentially useless if I had to do anything dependent on noticing colors. That’s where the first major advantage of the Eyezen Glasses came in, they allow the wearer to see things in their normal color. This is especially important when dealing with colored cells in Excel or color correcting photos and video. Lastly, it helps when playing puzzle games on my mobile device that are pretty much dependent on matching colors. The Eyezen glasses can be used for anything and everything, which is perfect for anyone who looks at a screen multiple hours a day.

The first day wearing the Eyezen glasses was a bit of a struggle. However, I can probably chalk it up to the new prescription and the general adjustment period that comes along with that. My eyes were watering and felt a bit tender. I found myself closing my eyes hard to get a bit of a refresher. The second day wasn’t as bad, and the third day it was unnoticeable. So, it did take a little while to adjust, but that could have easily been the new prescription.

Another thing I noticed right away, I was able to fall asleep faster those nights. Blue light supposedly affects the circadian rhythm, and I believe that wearing the glasses for most of the day helped with that. I’ve been thrown off since daylight savings time, but it has gotten a lot better since the glasses, and I’m almost back to waking up at 4:30 am.

My mood has generally been improved as well. I am not as easily irritated while working, and I can usually keep the happiness I get from my morning coffee throughout the day now. It’s not a noticeable difference from the outside, but mentally I am much more at ease. Which I think is generally more important. I have less non-positive thoughts about my co-workers and it’s easier for me to grind things out at work.

The biggest difference I noticed, is the general lack of fatigue I feel after work. I used to be a carpet cleaner, which is physically draining work that often requires overtime. It was exhausting, but in general, I would still have mental clarity and the ability to do school work afterward. Before I started consistently wearing the Eyezen, my mind and body would just be checked out after work at my current day job. I couldn’t write an article if my life depended on it. My facilities were just spent. Now I usually have enough mental energy to maybe write out a few articles, coherently respond to emails, or plan out a lesson plan. It’s a small amount of energy, probably better used in the gym, but it’s more energy than what I would normally have after 9 hours behind a computer.

The only real downside to the Eyezen, and this probably only affects me or anyone else who wears larger than a size 8 hat, but the frames are a bit narrow. I got the biggest frames they have on the site and it still pinches my temples. I’ve curved the frame a bit to help, but it’s not enough. Granted this is a problem I have with most frames, but it’s something I have to bring up. They generally don’t make glasses for large headed people, or hats, or masks, or anything really. It’s the one flaw in an otherwise flawless product.

Aside from that, I’m pretty sure everyone else will experience only the positive effects of the Eyezen glasses. The Eyezen glasses reduce eye fatigue, which in turn reduces overall fatigue, and just makes life generally more pleasant. I did my best to describe the general betterment of my day to day life feels like with the Eyezen glasses, but I think it’s something you have to experience to fully understand. If you spend a good portion of your day behind a digital screen or looking at a digital screen, I can’t recommend the Eyezen glasses enough. It’s a slow change at first, but a change you come to truly appreciate when it fully kicks in. I give my Eyezen review gets a 5/5
