Because of this i use a Gunnar[^]. Actually bought it for my gaming activities, now, since i suffer from a soft headache for months, i'm using it mainly at work. It helps a lot, but still i have an appointment at the eye doc to check if my lenses need help. Probably the headache then will go away.
Well as i currently, until my appointment at the doc, don't need prescription lenses i just got em online. I saw that they offer prescription lenses only with the stuff you'll get from the doc, but i have no idea how good that works.
Anyway, i guess you might get good "computer glasses" anywhere. Seems like that market is growing.
I actually suffer greatly, i need eyes drops a couple of times a day and need to use an eye bath after work. I use a piece if software called Iris they started charging for it now, there is an old version kicking around the web that has all the features though, however windows 10 has nightmode feature now, which allows you to set the whitepoint and reduce the blue light, looks really wierd at first but try turning it back on after an hour you will feel blinded.
I also used to use a program called leo which reminds you to take short 15 second breaks from your monitor.
Apparently gaming glasses can help, most have slight yellow tint apparently to reduce the [higher frequency] blue color and coating to reduce glare from screen & other light sources. In my case though I wear prescription glasses and getting scripted gaming glasses costs a small fortune and probably involves mail order - what if they're done wrong.
So intending to get a new pair of glasses for sure with a proper anti-glare coating (like cryzal) - till now have been wearing the cheapest glasses I could get (full on aerobic cycling is hard on glasses, sweat, accidents...). Will talk to the eye doc about the yellow tinting if any.
Figure better to spend a few dollars - money: can always get more, eyes: not so much.

Over here in Holland I got a pair of "Computer glasses" which have a coating, are varifocal and with some other corrections for only 320 Euro. Also got a pair of normal glasses for the long distance for free. Very pleased with them !
That's a good prize... The problem is that I have a hard time to trust online ordering (which is cheaper), so I pay the high prize...
My sunglasses cost almost 3000 NIS (~700 Euro) alone, because the size (eye covering), the coating and the numbers+cylinder)...
