I've tried out using just polarized dark sunglasses reading things online as well as the television and I think it is better with my sunglasses on as opposed to just regular glasses.

I've been wearing reading glasses for about 25 years or so, had lasik to correct long distance issues about 10 years ago but recently got polarized prescription sunglasses and I'm thinking this is less stressful than regular prescription glasses.

So, my question is this... do any of you wear sunglasses (not the blue light stuff as I've tried that and it is weak at best) when hanging out on your computer?

My wife wears these blue filter glasses, but I don't know how effective they can be, but she claims it works. I use flux; try not to look at the screen for long periods. I have been wearing glasses since I was seven, and I am nearside. You could try some of these monitors that have the anti-glare you can put on top of it. I also use eyedrops every day to ensure my eyes are ok, but again there is no perfect answer.

P.S I never tried Gunnars glasses but I heard they are just basically sunglasses.

Just turn on eye comfort on your smartphone or use flux on PC. Problem solved. With flux activated, I use my PC for hours with no issues.

Well, I don't know why it didn't work out for you, but perhaps you should give it a try again but this time use a lighter color setting.

I am using the app only during the night, as in the day we need the bright light, so I switch it off ...

Have been using glasses since I was 7 for my poor long vision, but still haven't given myself the chance to get polarized lenses.
Will have to give that a good thought now :)

I'm not a medical expert by any means, but I do like to read, a lot. Take my words with a big grain of salt.

Not only do sunglasses make you look cool whilst working, but they do have a bunch of health effects.

As you mentioned, you're using polarized sunglasses, which greatly reduce bright lights and reflections/glare.
Bright lights affect humans in a bunch of ways, but one of them is controlling the release of cortison, a type of steroid hormone that acts as a messenger for your organs to act in given ways.
Cortisol affects your whole body in way too many ways to list here, but to shortly mention what's important in this case.
Increased cortisol levels affect cognitive brain functions and overall 'mood' negatively.

On top of reducing bright lights, polarized glasses do block some levels of blue light to my knowledge, which then impacts your melatonin levels. That in turn might be resposible for better night's sleep.

Wearing regular sunglasses inside for long periods of time can, and most likely will give you headaches, but I'm not too sure if that's the case with dark polarized lenses.

I'm thinking this is less stressful than regular prescription glasses.

I can totally see (*pun intended) why wearing such glasses can improve the overall quality of life/working.
I might get polarized lenses for myself too now!

I have no idea if you're interested in any of the above, but it's late here and I got bored :p
