Felix Gray Computer Eyewear Combats Eye Strain in Style

Hi, my name is Sage, and I’m a screen addict. *cue a room full of geeks and techies, “Hi Sage.”*

Chances are, if you’re reading this, you’re a screen addict too. In fact, I’m triple-screening right now: writing this post on my laptop, referencing articles I saved on my phone, and watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens on the seat-back screen in front of me (did I mention I’m on a plane?). Whether we like it or not, screens are an integral part of our lives.


When I heard about Felix Gray, a new high-end eyewear brand designed to protect the wearer from screen-related eye strain, I knew I needed to try them out. Since I started working in tech, I feel a big difference in my eye health. It’s a weird feeling; it’s not that my eyes are blurry or having trouble focusing, but they start to hurt in different ways than they used to and affect my overall feeling of mental alertness and focus. When I have a busy day in front of screens I experience dryness, soreness, and even trouble falling asleep.

A survey by the Vision Council polled more than 10,000 adults found that 65% of Americans experience digital eye strain, and that using multiple screens at once actually increases the effects of digital eye strain. Further, our screens emit blue light, a high-energy light that is similar to ultraviolet light. According to optometrist and medical advisor Justin Bazan, that light “has been known to cause damage on the cells of the eyes for years now.” (TIME)


With Felix Gray I am embarking on an eye health investigation. Felix Gray glasses feature a blue light filter and a +0.25 magnification to lessen the eye strain caused by our screens. I’ve been wearing these glasses (in Nash style) for about a week now and feel immediate relief when I put them on. Since eye health is an ongoing issue, I will be integrating these glasses into daily use and track how they feel over time.

  1. Hi! What color Nash Felix Gray are these? Is it Whiskey Tortoise or Magma? I got the Nash Whiskey Tortoise and noticed the shadings look more white/grey than the amber color here so just curious :)

  2. Thanks! I’m really considering trying these glasses out since I also experience serious headaches after prolonged computer sessions due to the eye strain. I haven’t read enough reviews about Felix Gray and their spectacles which make me question their claim. There’s this other company, Gunnar Optiks, who claims to do the same, but wearing their glasses would look so awkward in public because of the yellow lenses. Hope you are not paid to advertise them 😄

    • I’m not paid by Felix Gray, they gave me the glasses for free to try them out and review, but I use them because I like them! I’ve seen Gunnar Optiks, and I agree they look a little awkward. The Felix Grays also have tinted lenses, but they’re a lot more subtle and people have told me the tint isn’t noticeable.

    • I love them! I do find that they reduce eye strain, and I especially feel the effect the morning after I use them. My eyes used to hurt a lot after a late night on the computer, but when I use the Felix Grays, they don’t.
