Anti-glare glasses are special glasses designed to help reduce and relieve eye strain caused by looking at a computer for a period of time. When you stare at a computer screen, it forces your eye muscles to remain in one position. Generally, this position is also at a strenuous level. Anti-glare glasses help to reduce this strain.
Eye strain is characterized by blurred vision, burning eyes, headache, and tired eyes. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms while using the computer, anti-glare glasses may be a wise buy for you. Even if you are not a regular computer user, your eyes may benefit from these glasses. In addition to being affected by the glare from your computer screen, your eyes can be come strained from being in a room with poor lighting. These glasses can also be beneficial for this type of situation, as they help reduce the strain on your eyes.
Anti-glare glasses help reduce the amount of strain your eyes feel by reducing the convergence of your eyes and by helping to reposition your eyes to a more comfortable position. This reduces the strain placed on the muscles in your eyes, as well as the tension your eyes experience. In addition, these glasses help reduce the amount of ultraviolet radiation that reaches your eyes, and they do not magnify the light like traditional eyeglasses do.
Anti-glare glasses can also be glasses with a special anti-reflective coating. As with the other type of non-prescription anti-glare glasses, the coating on these glasses is beneficial for reducing eyestrain when using a computer. In addition, it eliminates the appearance of “halos” around the headlights of cars at night. If this distracts you while you are driving, anti-glare glasses may be right for you.
On the down side, glasses with this special coating are more prone to becoming scratched and to holding oily fingerprints. In order to prevent scratching, it is necessary to use a special cloth to wipe the glasses clean.
