    I want to ask a question. Regarding buying Computer Glasses on Firmoo, does the computer glasses include anti-glare with them if I don't add anything other customization since that's what computer glasses do. I'm -4 but the customer support told me to put the prescription at -3.5 since I'm only using it for the computer.

    If you have some vision problems, you'd better have an eye exam first. Then you can take your prescription to an optician shop to order a pair of computer glasses. The price may vary from place to place. Usually they will cost about $200.

    What do you mean by don't wear glasses? You have perfect vision? Mmm... You can also buy a pair of computer glasses though you have perfect vision.

    If you have perfect vision, then you don't need to have an eye exam. You can tell an optician that you want to buy a pair of computer glasses then he or she may make a pair computer glasses for you. My computer glasses cost me $98. I bought them from an online optical store. The glasses sold online are much cheaper than the same glasses sold in any optical shops. You can have a look first. Hope this helped!
