WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT (AND IS IT REALLY BAD FOR YOU)?

Blue light is the artificial light that emits from digital screens: everything from your laptop, computer, tablet, and smartphone. It’s a high-energy visible (HEV) light that damages your eyes, causing you migraines or difficulty in sleeping.

Believe it or not, blue light is all around you. Most of it comes from the sun, and not all of it is bad - but too much could lead to premature aging of the eyes and retina damage and perpetual eye strain. Some of the worst sources are the ones you interact with the most: your computer, phone or tablet. That’s where our glasses come in!

HOW DO BLUE LIGHT GLASSES WORK?

Our protective eyeglasses work by filtering the blue light with the help of a special blocking lens filter that stops the transmission of a specific segment or range of wavelengths.

To be able to do this, our proprietary Eyefend lenses have multiple layers of special coatings embedded in them. Among these layers, the anti-reflective coating is a particularly important component of how blue light glasses work. Our lenses are designed to help reduce the occurrence of digital eye strain by minimizing the amount of light that’s reflected away from the eye, reducing distracting glare and protecting the retina from wavelengths that scientists have found to be most harmful (380 nm – 500 nm).

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BLUE LIGHT PROTECTION?

If your average screen time sums up to 4 hours per day or more, blue light protection is recommended by the American Optometric Association.


Great for Computers

Put an end to the disruptive eye-straining pauses that block your efficiency and creativity. A pair of blue light blocking lenses will protect your eyesight from the high intensity wavelengths emitted by your computer or laptop, and help you carry out your best work. Good bye, computer vision syndrome!



Alleviate Eye Strain & Discomfort

No more eye strain or headaches as you surf the web. Blue light filtering glasses improve your focus and prevent harmful wavelengths from wearing down your eyes. Feel more awake and rested with the right protection.

Eliminate Screen Glare

Many digital devices continue to have reflective surfaces that lead to the inevitable glare-effect, also known as one of the most common causes of eyestrain. The Anti-Reflecting (AR) coat prevents distracting glare and blurry vision while increasing contrast for a better, less-straining experience.

Improve Your Sleep

Late nights working on your laptop or scrolling through messages on your smartphone? By using protective glasses you can improve your body’s production of sleep-inducing melatonin and enjoy your downtime and sleeping quality.

HOW TO TEST IF YOUR GLASSES HAVE BLUE LIGHT PROTECTION

Do you already have a pair of glasses, but you’re not sure they protect you? The best way to test your glasses for computer screen protection is by using a device called transmittance spectrum. Simply point the instrument at your blue light source, and then take the measurement again, but this time through the lens of your glasses.
