In my opinion, they are.
I’ve always had several eye problems – high diopters, dry and strained eyes, headaches, etc.
So I can say that I was desperate to find a way to work longer on my computer without getting so tired.
First I tried the blue light blocking glasses – they increased my headaches. I also didn’t like that I can’t customize anything.
Then I was about to try a monitor protector, but I decided not to, because once I put it on, I can’t just take it off when I need to see the real colors on the screen and again I can’t customize it.
Which is why I switched to a blue light filter – Iris.
For me, this is the best option for blocking the blue light.
