Lately, there has been a lot of talk about how blue light from electronic devices can have negative effects on your eyes. Some people are even going as far as to wear blue light glasses with their contacts to avoid the problem altogether.
There is some debate regarding whether or not it’s possible to wear these two things together though, so we’re here to help you figure out what you should do.
Can you wear blue light glasses with contacts?
The answer is yes, and there are a few reasons why.
First of all, while your eyes may be exposed to more harmful wavelengths when wearing these two things together, it’s worth noting that this exposure is nowhere near as high as what you would experience if the device or TV was right in front of your face.
The potential for damage from regular use should also be considered. Since most people need their vision corrected (either naturally or through contact lenses), they’ll already have a set schedule of wearing their corrective eyewear at certain times throughout the day anyway.
In other words, by not only taking off those glasses but putting on something else too.
