Have you ever noticed how your eyes start to feel strained and tired after hours of looking at a computer screen, or felt like you couldn’t get a good night’s sleep after using your phone in the evening? We have, and that’s why we support the development of Blue+™ blue light filtering technology. These glasses are designed to reduce blue light exposure, so you can enjoy your digital devices without experiencing any unwanted side effects. But how do they work? Let’s take a deeper look.
What is Blue Light?
Blue light is a type of light that is emitted by digital devices such as phones, laptops, and TVs. This type of light has a high energy level which can cause eye strain and disrupted sleep patterns if exposed to it for too long. Our brains are trained to follow the sun - when the sun sets, it triggers our natural release of melatonin which helps us fall asleep faster and more deeply. However, when exposed to blue light from our digital devices late at night, it tricks our mind into thinking it's still day time instead of night time, making it harder for us to get a restful sleep!
What Does Blue Light Technology Do?
Blue+™ blue light filtering technology is embedded within our lenses, which filters out up to 80% of blue light without blocking it at 100%. This means that you can still enjoy using your digital devices without having any negative side effects on your eyes or sleep quality. The technology itself is made up of subtle yellow pigments within the lenses that help reduce the amount of blue light travelling through the lenses - reducing symptoms of digital eye strain like headaches at the end of the day and sore eyes. Not only this but studies have found that wearing these glasses can also increase productivity by giving users greater focus throughout their working day.
What are Blue Light Glasses?
Blue Light Glasses are special eyewear specifically designed to reduce the amount of damaging blue light that reaches your eyes. Blue light has been linked to a number of short-term side effects such as eye strain, headaches, fatigue and disrupted sleep patterns. Longer-term exposure to blue light has also been linked to increased risk of macular degeneration.
If you're concerned about exposing yourself to too much blue light which in turn impacts your sleep, then investing in a pair of Blue+™ glasses could be just what you need. The glasses are designed with your comfort in mind - reducing symptoms associated with digital eye strain like headaches and sore eyes while also helping promote better quality sleep and increased productivity during your working day.
From this article we hope that you now have a better understanding about what Blue Light glasses are and how they work. Not all Blue Light glasses are made equal though; be sure to look for lenses with our proprietary Blue+™ technology which filters out up to 80% of HEV Blue Light without blocking it at 100%. Wearing our lenses will ensure that your symptoms related to Digital Eye Strain are reduced significantly while still allowing you access all the information available on digital devices with clarity.
