Gaming glasses

Gaming glasses are glasses that are specifically designed to reduce eye strain, protecting the eyes of people who spend an extended amount of time playing video games. Gamers often spend long periods in front of blue light-emitting screens in dark rooms, squinting to focus on the screen and giving rise to eye strain. There are different types of gaming eyeglasses that you can wear to protect your eyes while gaming. Prescription gaming glasses can add a slight degree of magnification to prevent squinting and blue-light gaming glasses filter the amount of blue light that reaches your eyes, thereby protecting your eyes from strain. Yellow gaming glasses enhance contrast while reducing glare and strain from some areas of the color spectrum like blue light glasses.
