The Science Behind Gaming Glasses
How Does Blue Light Affect Your Eyes?
Generally, intense gameplay in front of a bright screen constantly blasts blue wavelengths, which be dangerous to your eyes. Especially since gamers are so focused that their blinks per minute goes down and number of saccades (rapid eye movements) goes up. This can cause a lot of strain on the eyes and create eye fatigue.
UV400 glasses block out harmful blue wavelengths that causes eye fatigue and eye strain from monitors and screens.
These blue wavelengths are useful during daylight hours since they boost attention and mood. However, these blue wavelengths blasting your eyeballs all day can be a problem, especially at night.
Why is this blue light from screens such a problem?
Typically, focused and intense gameplay in front of a bright screen that constantly blasts blue wavelengths can be problematic. Especially since gamers are so focused that their blinks per minute goes down and number of saccades (rapid eye movements) goes up. This can cause a lot of strain on the eyes and create eye fatigue.
According to Harvard Medical School, there are several health issues that these blue lights can create:
- Interferes with circadian rhythm which affects sleep
- Long-term, nighttime disruption from blue light may contribute to the causation of cancer, diabetes, heat disease and obesity.
- Suppresses nightly secretion of melatonin (sleep hormone), which might explain association with cancer
These glasses help reduce the amount of blue light that enters the iris with a UV400 lens that helps filter these wavelengths.
A study done at John Carroll University found that participants that wore blue light blocking glasses at night, saw an improvement in their sleep and had their symptoms of ADHD reduced.
According to Science Daily, the benefits of blue light blocking glasses are:
- Better sleep
- Avoids postpartum depression
- Prevents Seasonal Affective Disorder
The copper color of the lenses also helps create contrast and make environments in games appear brighter. Blue light has shorter wavelengths, thus making it scatter easier than most other colors. This makes focusing a lot more difficult. This is why removing blue light can help improve your vision's sharpness and depth perception.
These also don't create any color distortion, which is important when using these glasses for gaming.

DO GAMING GLASSES WORK - AND IF SO, HOW DO THEY HELP GAMERS?
You might have seen companies online selling gaming glasses; as a gamer, one question you have before purchasing them however is: "do gaming glasses work?"
And if they do work, what do gaming glasses do? For starters, the right pair of gaming glasses do work. And, they can help you improve your level of play, improve vision and clarity, and help reduce stress and strain on your eyes, especially when you are playing your favorite games for hours on end, or engaged in an online competition and simply can't put down your controller.
WHAT ARE GAMING GLASSES?
As the name implies, gaming glasses are glasses which are intended for those who play games online and offline. Gaming glasses are used for various reasons; among these are:
- - To help reduce blue light glare and strain. When you are staring at a TV, computer, tablet, or other device for too long, this emits blue light. This causes strain and can impair vision. Gaming glasses help reduce this.
- - They help improve clarity, reduce glare, and provide a lighter hue (yellow tint) which will help you see colors vividly and clearly.
- - Gaming glasses will help you keep up with fast paced games, help reduce blur or glare, and help provide enhanced definition for all games you love playing.
Just as sunglasses are intended to help reduce harmful UV rays and reduce the damage rays do to your eyes, gaming glasses are intended to help reduce the blue light, and vision impairment you would suffer from, if you would stare at a computer or TV screen for several hours a day, without having such protections.
DO THEY WORK?
With so many products out there, you are of course asking do gaming glasses work? Again, the answer is yes, but only if they are properly designed. For those who are looking for a high quality pair of gaming glasses, which are going to work the way in which they are intended to work, we have several pairs from which you can choose at Gamer Series. So, why are our glasses different from others?
For starters, they are specifically designed to reduce the blue light which is emitted off screen. This is in turn going to result in less strain, vision impairment, and is going to help you see the images on screen clearly. In addition to blue light reduction, the clarity and glare which comes along with fast paced gaming is also reduced with our gaming glasses. So players who like role playing games, enjoy fast paced games, and those which move from screen to screen quickly, your vision won't suffer as much when wearing our gaming glasses.
SHOULD YOU INVEST IN GAMING GLASSES?
Gaming glasses provide players with vision improvement during game play. They will help reduce the amount of strain which your eyes suffer from during game play. And, the glasses are going to help reduce issues with impaired vision as you get older. Especially for those who are intense gamers, who play for many hours a day, or play in many competitions, the strain your eyes are suffering from, can affect you in the future as well.
