WHAT ARE BLUE LIGHT GLASSES?

Blue light blocking glasses are designed to filter out the harmful blue-violet (ultraviolet or UV) light rays that are commonly emitted from digital screens. These lenses have special filtering materials and surface coatings that reduce glare and help reduce potential damage from prolonged exposure to blue light.

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 proprietary Eyefend lenses have multiple layers of special coatings and filters embedded in them. These layers limit the transmission of light within the potentially harmful ultraviolet range (380 nm – 500 nm). They also reduce bothersome glare emitted from digital screens.

Our lenses are also designed to help reduce eye strain by minimizing excess reflections and bothersome glare from devices such as computers, tablets, and smartphones.

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 and Discomfort at the Computer

Blue light and excess reflections from your computer screen can cause eye strain, headaches, and tired eyes. These symptoms are referred to as computer vision syndrome (CVS). Blue light blocking glasses can improve your focus and efficiency while working at the computer. Good-bye, computer vision syndrome!.

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.
