Do Blue Light Blocking Glasses REALLY Work? FELIX GRAY review



Blue light blocking? Magnification? If you’re considering a pair of computer glasses, this video will help you make the right decision.

We all look at screens everyday, but are we safe doing so? Recent studies suggest that blue light emitted from LEDs can be harmful to our eyes if exposed for long periods. I recently bought a pair of Felix Gray computer glasses on my journey to preserve my eyes and prevent macular degeneration. Along the way I also had a pair of computer glasses made by my optometrist to compare lens quality.

  1. I need glasses and I game a lot doc recommended blue light but they have a yellow tint , you mentioned that but is it really noticble ?

  2. Interesting, I think that the Felix Grays could work for me as I spend 50+ hours in front of a screen and I'm not a gamer. My boyfriend, however, plays Overwatch so your insight is super helpful.
    Do you need glasses normally? My insurance gives me a pair of glasses per year but I've never needed glasses, perhaps I can use that credit for computer glasses.
    Great review!

  3. Zenni optical people…. $200+ for glasses smh. My insurance covers eye exams but not lenses/frames. Zenni is extremely cheap and has great reviews.

  4. with insurance i got the uv lenses and frames for just $126 so it depends on whether you have insurance or not to compare with felix gray vs the onesyou get from the eye clinic.

  5. You should really only get a +0.25 magnification if your slightly farsighted (meaning far is clear, but near is challenging) or if your about 35+ years old and having trouble reading or seeing the computer. Not to mention the advise of an eye doctor. Also studies show that the crizal prevencia's blue blocking capabilities are a joke; 20% filtration at 420nm… almost useless. Yes the Felix Gray lenses have a non-glare coating as well and reflect a green color as opposed to prevencia's distracting purple color. If lenses do not have non glare then they reflect a white color. You should try the no magnification lenses and see how you like those, but really it depends on your rx.

  6. You are a more personable Patrick Bateman
    Very methodical in speech, although that's really where the similarities end.

  7. Here in Philippines if you buy blue light glasses it cost $10 it's cheap in here๐Ÿ˜‚ and that glasses is expensive ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  8. Hi Tony, I also bought a pair of glasses (Rods ++ Cones) and I was trying to make some tests. I can see a difference using them, my eyes are less tired than normally, but in theory, they should block the blue light, and if you notice the reflection on your video (looking your glasses), with the Felix glasses seems a green reflection, while the expensive one get you a more blue/uv reflection on your video.
    I think these cheep blue light protection glasses are not doing the job they claim to do.

    great video!

  9. Has anyone tried felix gray and pixel eyewear? I have heard that felix gray is higher quality but I have only tried pixel eyewear so far

  10. I had the same motion sickness at first, but it is just your eyes getting used to those glasses. AFTER 2 days I felt like my eyes weren't training over screen anymore, so I think you made a quick decision and didn't give a accurate review.

  11. Well, I don't play any video games so I won't have that problem.
    PC gaming is a huge waste of time. It's a bad habit.

  12. My Zennis are arriving in a couple of days. I entered the PD in the prescription (originally measured by optometrist for a previous store bought prescription). Did they not have you enter your PD when you ordered your Zennis or did they get it wrong regardless?

  13. when I wear my Felix gray glasses the screen looks the same. Shouldn't it be at least a little different? What am I missing?

  14. There many blue light options out there and they are not all created equal. Cheap solutions are just that. Complications from Blue light can discussed as both short and long term issues. One of the factors not discussed, the greatest source of blue light is the sun. The majority of sunglasses out there are not designed to block blue light. But most of us spend the majority of our time indoors, and this new High energy wavelengths of light are foreign to the eyes and our brain. Still much to learn about this topic. The sight you save is your own…

  15. Pupil distance should only matter if you are using a prescription for your glasses. Computer glasses are generally a fixed prescription and pupil distance is irrelevant. If that was the reason for returning the Felix Gray, then there must have been some other factor going on.
