Everything You Need To Know About Blue Light Glasses?
Let's face it. We are all addicted to our screens.
In the era of TikTok, Instagram, gaming, and streaming, it is nearly impossible to avoid excess screen time. Even if you managed to cut out all the extra stuff, chances are you use a computer for work, you probably text to communicate, and you're definitely looking at a screen right now because you're reading this blog.
Digital devices have made our lives easier than ever before. And while we love being connected, it is possible to have too much of a good thing. The increase in screen time also means an increase in exposure to the harmful blue light that is emitted from those screens. This leads to digital eye strain, headaches, and disrupted sleep.
As a brand, we're here to help you look good and feel good. So when we started to expand our eyewear, we decided to take on this modern problem. Here's everything you need to know about blue light and how our Nightshift glasses can help you combat it.
What is blue light?
Without getting into physics, blue light is part of the visual light spectrum. Blue light is considered high-energy visible light, meaning its wavelength hits our eyes at a higher frequency and greatly affects our circadian rhythm because it mimics the light that comes from the sun. Prolonged exposure to this kind of light from digital devices such as TV, cellphones, and laptops can cause headaches and eye fatigue. It can even make it difficult for you to fall asleep and stay asleep because it affects how your body produces melatonin at the end of the day.
Are these things going to kill you, no. However, when we're all spending hours of our day in front of a screen, all of these symptoms can be uncomfortable, irritating, and negatively affect your daily productivity.
What do blue light glasses do?
Since we're probably not going to ditch our phones and laptops anytime soon, blue light blocking glasses protect your eyes by adding a barrier that absorbs or blocks some of the blue light rays so they don’t hurt your eyes. To put it plainly, blue light blocking glasses help combat the harsh glow of your screens and combat the irritating effects of prolonged screen use. They are a proactive solution for those who log long pixel time and they minimize the effects of blue light rays, allowing you to shut down and recharge for the next day.
Where can I get some?
Featuring 4 stylish frame shapes, premium cellulose acetate, anti-glare and anti-smudge lenses, our Nightshift blue light blocking glasses are high-quality, effective, and made with the same attention to detail as our watches. We took our time with this collection so we could create a product that gave you lasting confidence and all-day comfort as you take on the screen.
You can wear the Nightshift glasses all day. We recommend wearing them whenever you are in front of a screen or on your mobile devices such as a smartphone or tablet. You can also wear them when you're just on-the-go to make sure your eyes are protected whenever you are exposed to blue light.
