Can reading glasses protect my eyes if I work in fluorescent light, say in a laboratory or reading in a college dorm room?

Reading Glasses and Fluorescent Light

Tinted reading glasses can cut down on that glare from the library that makes you look owlish. Make sure you have anti-reflective coating on the back lens of your reading eye glasses, otherwise fluorescent light can reflect off that back surface and appear as a ghost image. That's why you see spots after staring directly at fluorescent light. The right glasses for reading will reduce the fluorescent effect. You can buy compact reading glasses designed to reduce the glare. Be sure to shop and compare reading glasses online and in your local eyeglass store or Lenscrafters.
