Frequently Asked Questions
What is blue light?
Blue light is the harshest light in the spectrum. Humans did not have to deal with it until recently- and since we’re not going to be giving up our screens anytime soon- it’s best to accept it and protect your eyes.
Why is blue light bad?
It’s everywhere! Computers, tablets, televisions and even some florescent lighting. Too much blue light will often result in headaches, trouble sleeping and even blurred vision.
What if I don’t like my glasses?

How do I measure myself?
There are many ways to take your own pupil distance. The most accurate is to put on your current glasses and have a friend dot where your pupils are. Then, take a ruler and measure the distance between the lenses (using millimeters). If you like, you can take a picture of your dots and send them along with your Rx and we can double check it before we make them.
What if I have a really bad prescription?
We are able to make computer glasses in any prescription. However, we will only fulfill the most difficult prescriptions in-store. Due to the preciseness of measurements and lens options, we will not make certain prescriptions. Upon receiving your prescription we will contact you if there are any issues. If you have a difficult prescription, we will take extra care with your measurements and recommend a specialty lens (trivex or hi index 1.67) and there will be an additional charge of $59.
Can I make my computer glasses in a bifocal?
Currently we only fulfill computer bifocal prescriptions in-store. However, we will soon offer this option online.
I have progressive bifocals but my doctor gave me a prescription for computer glasses. What does that mean?
Doctors will often write a prescription specifically for computer glasses. There is a formula that doctors and opticians use that adjusts your reading prescription into computer glasses. These are meant to be used at your computer only, and they are amazing.
Can Aldous adjust my bifocal prescription into computer glasses?
Yes we can. All we need is your prescription and we will customize your glasses for computer use. Trust us when we say that you’ll love them!
