Screen Glasses

Where are the Origine glasses produced?
They are 100% made in Italy in the glasses manufacturing district North of Milan, following a centuries old tradition and using the highest quality materials available. 

I’ve never worn glasses before, can I wear screen glasses?
Yes, our non-prescription screen glasses are perfect for people who have never worn glasses before, or aren't short/long sighted. 
Who needs these glasses the most?
Origine glasses are for anyone who spends a large amount of time in front of screens for work or leisure as they are emitting harmful blue light, which is dangerous for their eyes and it causes headaches, eye-strain and can negatively affect their sleep patterns. 
Can I have my Origine glasses with prescription lenses?
Not at the moment, however you can bring your Origine glasses to your optician and get your prescription lenses on them.
Do Origine glasses work with contact lenses?
Of course! Origine glasses work great with contact lenses and provide extra protection when you are in front of screens. They should also provide protection against your contact lenses becoming dry and uncomfortable.
Are the glasses’ lenses yellow? Will they affect my colour perception?
Most of the companies on the market sell computer glasses that have deep yellow/orange tints. As you can see from the pictures on our site, Origine glasses are transparent and the blue light protection affects them in such a minimal way that it is unnoticeable. Our glasses are great for people who need optimum color perception on their screens.
Will I have protection against UV light as well?
Absolutely! Origine lenses will protect you not only from screens but also from natural light as they block up to 90% of UV rays as well.
Do Origine lenses work at night?
Definitely! They won't only help you keep your eyes more relaxed, but you'll also fall asleep faster and in a deeper way as they can increase your melatonin levels.
Do Origine non-prescription lenses have any kind of magnification?
The glasses do not have any strength or magnification - you can bring them to your optician and check.
It can happen to very few people that they have a magnification feeling when starting to wear computer glasses because when removing some part of the Blue color they get a different color contrast which they are not used to and it could cause this strange feeling. This is something temporary, it will be all good after a short while.
How would you recommend cleaning the glasses?
You should clean them like normal glasses - you can use the cleaning cloth provided and also some lens cleaning spray with no alcohol if a more intensive action is needed.
