Phonetic Eyewear recently sent me a pair of computer glasses to try. I’m always working on the computer and quite often, my eyes become tired and sore. As a former tech person for the government and now a self employed SEO/webdesigner, I’m quite familiar with sitting in front of a computer screen (or two) for most of the day.
Sometimes at night when I finally get off of the computer, my eyes will feel like there are needles in them and I can’t wait to go to bed and get some rest for them! So I was anxious to try the Phonetic Eyewear to see how my eyes would feel after using them while working on the computer.
To my surprise, my eyes weren’t stressed and strained like they normally are. This made me curious so I read through their documentation to see what they did to help lessen the strain my eyes normally have while working on the PC. Here’s what I found:
- Phonetic uses innovative blue light filtering technology which reduces digital eyestrain.
- Computer screens, smartphones and tablets emit lots of violet blue spectrum light – called blue light or High Energy Visible (HEV) light.
- HEV light can cause eyestrain, headaches and fatigue.
- Phonetic Eyewear has specially coated lenses which filter out over 30% of the HEV light.
I kind of liken it to wearing sunglasses – which protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays – only these are for the computer! (And of course they aren’t dark like sunglasses.)
The process of getting the Eyewear was also very easy. I just measured how far away from the computer screen i normally sit and measured the distance between my eyes – you can use a mirror and a ruler! It’s all explained in simple instructions on their website. If you have a prescription for reading glasses, they’ll even include that in the Eyewear!

Nonetheless, the hardest thing about getting the Phonetic Eyewear was choosing which of the styles I liked. They have lots of nice modern and stylish frames from which you can choose! I chose the “Rodger” model as the color and size of the frames appealed to me the most.
They Eyewear comes with a soft neoprene case to store the Eyewear in and also has a large soft microfiber cloth for cleaning the lens. They recommend using water or a lens cleaning spray for cleaning and tell you to stay away from cleaners with harsh chemicals / solutions.
There is a 90 day warranty that comes with the Eyewear which covers defects in materials and workmanship. They will repair the product at no charge or provide a new or re-manufactured replacement product of equal or greater value! So no need to worry if there is something that you need to get fixed.
So if you’re ready to check out the Phonetic Eyewear, you can visit them at their website: http://PhoneticEyewear.com
As usual, give Claudia a Trendy Shout and let her know what you think!
This sounds like such an awesome brand of eyewear! I will definitely be checking this one out.
I have to check these out. I am diabetic and one of the complications to the disease is having poor eyesight. Plus of course, the eye strain of staring at the computer screen for hours on end does more harm. I need to get a pair!

The Phonetic Eyewear glasses can be used by anyone. You don’t have to “need” glasses to wear these to protect your eyes. They come in various vision options. You can purchase a plain pair, readers, or containing your prescription.
Phonetic Eyewear is something I am going to have to look into for sure. I am in front of the screen most of the day as well. My son actually told got a pair of computer glasses but I don’t know if they are this brand. Thanks for sharing your experience.
Do they also sell amber computer glasses?
I need to get myself one of these glasses. They look good too.
These sounds really neat! Especially the UV protection. I could have definitely used these when I worked in front of computers all day.
I will check phonetic out. I am in the market for a new pair of prescription sunglasses.
Sounds like an amazing product. Taking care of eyes is so important. My eyes get really tired being on the computer all day.

This sounds like a great pair of glasses! As a migraine sufferer I need to look into the HEV for headaches!
Loved reading your review (and 1st post). Great job! I think I need a pair of Phonetic Eyewear myself. I experience some of those same symptoms you described by the time I get off the computer. These would be so helpful. Must look into them! Thanks for sharing!
Wow, I didn’t know they make glasses for computers. I have to darken the screen on my laptop as it is too bright for my eyes.

I may have to look into these. I seem to have more and more screen time. Tech Writer by day, blogger and VA at night.
I feel like I’ve experienced those symptoms before. Maybe eyewear like this would be good choice for me too.
This sounds like a great brand of glasses! I usually just stick to my contacts but will switch to glasses at night.
Nice looking glasses. I wear mostly contacts these days, but once in a while it’s nice to give my eyes a break and wear my glasses.
This is so smart! I don’t wear glasses but filtering out the blue light would be a huge plus!
OH! I was literally just having a conversation with a friend about these last week! With the amount of time I am on my computer and phone for work, I need to look into them!
I get pretty bad eyestrain from working at the computer all day. I need to look into this eyewear.
I have not heard of these before, it sounds like a great idea, I work on my computer all day almost every day! Thanks for this info.
Great recommendation. I have caused my eyes to undergo degeneration due to long hours on the computer. I need to make a change immediately.
Great eyeglasses. My son and I both spend a lot of time online and both wear glasses. I would like to see more of these.
I’m lucky enough to not need glasses for the computer yet. I had lasik a few years ago and have perfect vision.
I could definitely use a blue light filter for my tired eyes! I spend a lot of time in front of a screen and frequently get headaches as a result.
Good to know! I actually need new glasses. Mine are like over a decade old!
After a long day in front of my computer my eyes feel tired. I’ll have to see about getting a pair.
I spend a lot of time on my laptop. Taking care of my eyes is really important to me. I will have to look into these.
I need these glasses because I’m on my computer all day long most days. This eyewear is just what I need to reduce eye strain.
I think anyone who works on computers and stares at a computer screen all day can relate to your eye problem. Nice to see a company who can take care of the problem and still have a stylish looking pair of glasses.
