Teddith's original pairs didn't have prescription lense options, and were just meant to be worn over contacts or on their own for folks with naturally great vision (lucky you!). But for those who wore prescription glasses full-time (like myself), the brand's classic computer glasses were sadly out of reach.
After receiving loads of customer feedback, Teddith has finally made prescription lenses available for their computer glasses.
Folks in the tech team wear prescription glasses every day, so we we've been really excited about this new launch. Teddith sent over some glasses in each of our prescriptions, and we've been wearing them at the office where each of us spend pretty much the entire day (about eight hours) staring at a computer screen.
Here's what we've thought about them so far:
Sally K. from Tech
I wear glasses every single day for distance vision. I can't stand the thought of touching my eyeballs, so contacts are a non-starter for me. I'm also a major proponent of computer glasses, particularly after experiencing a bout of screen-induced migraines at work. All of my glasses (most of which are from EyeBuyDirect or Zenni Optical, both super affordable) are currently equipped with blue-light reflective coating, but Teddith's were exceptionally easy on my eyes.
Because my glasses are for distance vision, I usually experience a little bit of strain when I'm looking at things up close, like my computer screen — but the Teddith pair somehow managed to eke out my others by making it a bit more comfortable to adjust my sight. They also did a better job at keeping my eyes from fatiguing early on in the day, and they kept my headaches at bay.
Malarie G. from Support
I've worn glasses since I was five years old, so I'm no stranger to prescription eyewear. It's always annoyed me how much it costs to correct my vision and keep my eyes happy. I work on a computer all day, so I always have to pay extra for that screen glare coating they recommend at the eye doctor's office. As a former tech journalist, I'm also well aware that blue light from all these screens is messing with my eyes and causing strain.
So imagine my joy when I found out that Teddith, a brand that's known for creating great non-prescription glasses that filter out blue light was finally making prescription lenses for its frames. Needless to say, I was eager to try them out.
After a week of wearing them, I could definitely tell the difference versus my other prescription glasses. My eyes were less tired at the end of the day, and didn't get any headaches (which is something that's plagued me for years). The frames themselves are well-made and look good on my face, though they are larger than the frames I typically wear. The frame options are a bit limited, but the styles have universal unisex appeal, which is smart.
Amir I. from Marketing
I've been wearing glasses since I was eight years old, and with the exception of when I'm in the shower, they're on my face from the moment I wake up in the morning until I go to bed at night. In the past, I usually opted for Transition lenses to act as sunglasses and block UV rays, but blue-light blocking lenses recently piqued my interest because I spend far more time staring at computer screens at work than I do outside in the sun.
Just a few weeks before getting the opportunity to try Teddith's computer glasses, I purchased a new pair of glasses with blue-light blocking lenses and they work great. I admittedly never felt comfortable enough to purchase glasses online, so I ended up spending about $150 in a traditional brick-and-mortar glasses store — and if I didn't have insurance, it would have been be a lot more.
After wearing my Teddith glasses, I can say that my apprehension about buying glasses online is now gone. The glasses arrived faster than my pair from LensCrafters, and they're a lot cheaper, too. At $35, you really can't go wrong. Most importantly, they work as they should. I can see just as clearly as with my more expensive pair, and my eyes are less fatigued at the end of the day.
