What is Blue Light?
A blue light hazard can come from a range of objects used daily, such as phones, tablets and computers. If you’re concerned about the damaging effects of blue light to your eyes and quality of life, Microprism prescription blue light cancelling glasses are custom designed to suit your eyes.
In today’s technological era, it has become common for people to stare at computer screens for extended periods of time and then use portable devices late into the night. Users then wonder why they feel like they haven’t slept a wink the next day.
What’s more concerning is that these same people could be experiencing blue light macular degeneration without even realising it. Prolonged exposure can even lead to blue light cataracts in time. Fortunately, eye damage may be stopped in its tracks with blue light protection glasses. These offer a blocking shield so that any LED lights or blue light emitting devices won’t damage your eyes.
Our Blue Light Blocking Prescription Glasses Are Different
There are a lot of different kinds of protective glasses for blocking blue light available on the market –especially online. They are marketed as the ideal solution for those seeking blue light protection glasses designed at combating eye fatigue. Most of these are made for a generalist population.
These cheap blue light glasses will not offer the customisation for blocking blue light like the custom prescription glasses that we offer at Microprism Vision. Our behavioural optometrist conducts a full eye examination to ascertain the correct level of filtration required for your blue light prescription glasses so that you can experience greater levels of eye comfort.
Experience Better Protection
Blue light cancelling glasses are a great invention, but they’re only as good as their quality. As always, wearing glasses that are not custom-made for your eyes can pose problems. Especially if you have particular eye conditions that need attention.
If you’re concerned about the damaging effects of blue light to your eyes, book an appointment with Microprism Vision for prescription blue light cancelling glasses that are custom designed to suit your eyes. And if you’re not a fan of glasses, we can also offer contact lenses too.
We can provide customized prescription glasses or contact lenses that protect your eyes from fatigue and the damaging effects of blue light.
Are blue light glasses only worthwhile for people who work on computers or use digital devices (such as smartphones) extensively?
The short answer: NO.
While prolonged exposure to digital screens is the most common and widely known source of blue light, there are other sources of blue light in our daily lives. Sunlight is also a strong source, as are LED and fluorescent lighting. Consequently, blue light glasses can benefit anyone who wants to reduce their exposure to blue light and minimise its associated symptoms. Read More
Custom bluelight glasses with Microprism can still offer benefits even if your lifestyle means you don’t spend significant time in front of screens. Blue light exposure, particularly in the evening, can interfere with your sleep-wake cycle, disrupting your ability to fall asleep. Wearing blue light glasses in the evening can help filter out blue light, supporting superior sleep quality.
Additionally, blue light glasses can be helpful if you experience vision-related symptoms like eye strain, dryness, fatigue, or headaches, regardless of the source of blue light.
If you’re looking to buy blue light glasses in Melbourne, it’s important to think about the bigger picture and how they can support your overall well being.
How long should I wear blue light glasses daily to experience their full benefits?
Ideally, around the amount of time you spend in front of digital screens or under artificial lighting that emits blue light. For example, if you mainly use devices during the day, wearing blue light glasses during those periods may be sufficient.
Another way to think about it is to be reactive: if you experience eye strain, dryness, headaches, tiredness etc., after prolonged screen use, wearing blue light glasses consistently during those activities will alleviate these symptoms. If in doubt, please talk to one of our members of staff, who would be happy to help.

Can Blue Light Prescription Glasses help with Migraines or Headaches?
While the effectiveness of blue light glasses for migraines or headaches can vary, blue light glasses from Microprism Vision can assist with two common causes of migraines: light sensitivity and eye strain.
Many individuals who suffer from migraines or headaches will be sensitive to bright lights, including blue light. However, blue light glasses will reduce the intensity of light that reaches the eyes, attenuating its ability to trigger migraines or headaches.
Alternatively, prolonged screen use can cause eye strain, sometimes contributing to headaches. By reducing the amount of blue light reaching the eyes and straining the muscles, blue light prescription glasses may help reduce eye strain, potentially alleviating headaches. Read Less
We’ve all heard about blue light glasses by now, but before you buy blue light glasses in Melbourne you probably want to know how exactly they work. Simply put, blue light glasses work to reduce the amount of blue light reaching your eyes. They contain lenses specifically developed for this purpose, which means they usually have a yellow tint that counteracts the blue light. But you won’t be seeing everything in yellow, the tint is usually so vague you won’t notice it.
Sunlight contains light of different wavelengths and energy levels, which accordingly have different colours. This includes red, orange, yellow, green, indigo, violet and blue. Blue light has a short wavelength and high energy level. It’s emitted by the sun as well as man-made light sources, which are the most problematic when it comes to blue light. Some examples are computers, tablets and smartphones. Unlike with sunlight, we spend a long time using these devices, often at close proximity, which is difficult for our eyes to handle. While blue light is good for us when we’re exposed to it at certain levels, most modern people surpass the healthy limit.
Blue light glasses contain special lens technology that either blocks out or filters the blue light down to natural levels. They do this by filtering out the peak wavelength of artificial blue light. Blue light glasses for daytime wear filter out this light by 50%, which means you still get a healthy amount of blue light that won’t cause harm to your eyes. During the night you should wear glasses that block out blue light 100%, because we’re not meant to be receiving blue light during the night, and being exposed to it can negatively impact our sleep. To get blue light glasses that work for your specific situation, it’s best to go for custom blue light glasses like the ones we sell.
So, should you be looking for blue light glasses in Melbourne? Would they help you? We’ll help you figure out if you should be looking into blue light glasses and if you would benefit from them.
The biggest group of people who should be wearing blue light glasses are those that work or study at a computer. If you spend eight or more hours every day at the computer, that can be difficult for your eyes to handle. But if that’s part of your job, it’s also not something you can cut down on. Blue light glasses can be a lifesaver in these situations, as they reduce the uncomfortable side effects of staring at screens. Even if you don’t spend that many hours at your computer, you might already be finding yourself experiencing such side effects. This includes eye strain and pain and eye itching. No matter how much time you spend looking at screens in your everyday life, those are some warning signs that you should try blue light glasses.
Even if you don’t work at your computer, you could be spending hours every day looking at a laptop, tablet or phone. If you like to browse social media throughout the day, watch films on your laptop or read ebooks on your tablet, blue light glasses can help make this more comfortable for you.
Lastly, blue light glasses can help if you struggle with your sleep. Blue light impacts the body’s production of melatonin, especially when we are exposed to it late at night. If you struggle to fall asleep, this might be the reason why. Our blue light prescription glasses could help you.
Blue Light Glasses Benefits:
Less damage to eyes

Quantum Photo-Somatics is a dynamic process, activating the system to begin rearranging and realigning itself to a state of ease. On average, follow-up consultations resulting in a change of prescription occur on a 6-monthly basis. In most cases this is a decrease of prescription, allowing the system to continue moving forward. Where a prescription has increased, it is an indicator that more support is required at that moment, and will likely come down when conditions change.
However, if your new lenses aren’t delivering the comfort or improvement you expected within 100 days, we’re here for you. We’ll re-evaluate your eyes and make any adjustments that are required.
In the majority of cases, we find that a brief 15-30 minute consult suffices to determine the issue, and is usually a matter of further integration, or a slight adjustment to the prescription. These consultations are available free of charge within the 100 day warranty period.
- Progress and Support: In some cases, changes occuring as a result of the process may temporarily create some discomfort. Different stages of progress may require varying levels of support in order to reach the desired outcome.
- Consultation Fees: A consultation fee will be charged for consultations extending to an hour or more, given the extensive work involved.
- Discounted Lenses: If the outcome of your consultation is a significant decrease of prescription, new lenses will be prescribed at a 30% discount. Lens remakes under warranty are not honored for obvious improvements.
- Warranty Lens Remakes: If there’s another significant shift within the next 100 days, lens remakes we will remake your lenses free of charge.
As the outcomes of this work are highly individual, the application of this policy will have variability depending on the case, and is continually being adapted as the modality itself evolves.

We take a unique approach to vision and eye health by holistically and dynamically assessing vision, mind and body as a complete unit, working on conscious and subconscious levels.
Our unique methodology, Quantum (Energy) Photo (Light) Somatics (Body Movement) (QPS) has been developed by Dr Michael Christian. QPS supports Optometry and is an endorsed and accredited field with the IICT (International Institute of Complementary Therapies) myiict.com.
It engages a real time integrative feedback system of many factors, making adjustments, counter checks and further adjustments through the process.
Light uniquely and appropriately refracted through lens and prism combinations support and change factors such as breath, posture, balance, muscles, energy, nerves, emotions, movement and body functions, which in turn aims to positively affect the eyes and vision.
Once we understand the wearers profile, we prescribe balanced, highly customised, activating lens and prism prescriptions. These lenses aim to change the way the wearers eye muscles work while supporting how the brain processes visual information.
Just as you work out your body with weights and movement, the glasses we prescribe act as a personal trainer for your eyes that are designed to work just by wearing them, without the hassle of boring and limited time-consuming eye exercises.
The lenses aim to also encourage improvement of health conditions that are linked to, being caused by or exacerbated by poor vision, while aiming to avoid the usual deterioration of vision commonly experienced by long-term glasses wearers. The eyes affect the mind and body, and the mind and body affect the eyes.Both need optimal support. These links and relationships are thoroughly investigated in depth for each person.
Just as good air, food and water provides integral fuel for the body, good light, presented correctly, provides integral fuel for vision and mind.
The function of your eyes has a flow on effect to the rest of your mind and body. Just as changing any nerve or muscle group in the body does.
Microprism integrative prescriptions are derived by focusing two eyes together in specific binocular refractive patterns for clear perspective and detail discrimination. In Microprism progressive lens manufacturing, the prism is located in unique non-traditional active locations to ensure clear, open, comfortable and dynamic vision. Microprism directional prisms (up, down, in and out summations) are located differently and affect eye muscles, changing eye shape and location and the perception of objects within a space. The internal shift on eye muscles via the incoming prism re-directed light, effects and brings into alignment and balance, how near, distance and perspective are observed. This ideal state of alignment brings ease to the optical, motor and sensory system and has a positive flow on effect to the rest of the body. Light feeds the whole biophotonic transduction system of the body.
