What is blue light?
Blue light is part of the visible light spectrum that the human eye can see, better known as colours. Different colours give off different energy and are known to affect us in different ways. Blue light is the most energetic radiation, known to increase people's attention, reaction time and mood. About a third of all visible light falls into the category of high-visibility light, which is what we call "blue light" - in other words, it's not just the colour blue, per se, but also all other shades of blue, such as indigo, purple and turquoise.
Sunlight is an important source of natural blue light that we humans need to keep us awake - it helps us control our circadian rhythm. On the other hand, and as a result of the digital age, our exposure to blue light has increased dramatically, and this means that we are overexposed to blue light. In short, we are being exposed to more than is natural and healthy for our eyes and brains. Fortunately, we are becoming increasingly aware of the way our digital screens are negatively affecting us. This means we are now ready to prioritise our health needs.
How do I protect my eyes from the blue light?
It is recommended to reduce the number of hours in front of the screen, especially in the evening and at night. It is also useful to adjust the settings of your digital devices to change their colour display during the late hours so that they emit less blue light during the period you want. Reducing screen time isn't the easiest thing to do, however, and that's why many people opt for anti blue light glasses instead. It's an easy and inexpensive way to protect your eyes and body from the negative effects of blue light radiation, even recommended by Harvard researchers. They state that anti blue light glasses have beneficial health effects, such as improved sleep cycle and sleep quality, better focus and reduced headaches.
What's all the fuss about blue light glasses?
Our eyes are exposed daily to harmful blue light from the screens of computers, tablets, smartphones and TVs. In fact, most of us spend more than 8 hours a day on different screens - and our eyes can't protect themselves from that. Blue light glasses - often called screen glasses, blue light glasses, or computer glasses - protect your eyes from the blue light and you will quickly feel the effect after a long day in front of the computer and on the phone.
Screen glasses with blue light filters have become extremely popular over the past few years, and there is a very good reason for that. More and more people are realising that they are pushing their eyes to the limit when they sit in front of a screen in the office for most of the day, while increasing screen time in the evening on the phone, iPad or in front of the TV. The many hours of screen time that most of us have every day has a negative effect on our eyes. Many people experience dry eyes, poor sleep or headaches. All problems that can be linked to the intense exposure from blue light.

The benefits of blue light glasses
You can do wonders for your health just by wearing blue light computer glasses when using digital screens. Anti-blue light glasses are available both with and without lens strength - so even if you don't need reading glasses you can still protect your eyes from blue light without a prescription lens. Healthier body routines are established due to the positive effects of improved sleep, fewer headaches, reduced eye strain leading to a greater well-being!
At Luxreaders, we've worked tirelessly to reconcile the positive effects of blue light glasses on your eyes with a wide selection of frames and styles that are both high quality and great looking. Luckily, we've managed to create a wide range of models and collections of screen glasses that allow you to look stylish while sitting in front of the screen. Plus, we've worked hard to keep the weight of the glasses down, so you can wear them for hours at a time without the frame feeling heavy or bothering you.
How do blue light reading glasses work?
The lenses in the anti blue light glasses are coated with a thin filter that blocks and absorbs the blue light rays emitted from your screens. Maybe you already recognise this from the "night mode" on your smartphone, where the screen becomes more yellowish? Blue light glasses block and absorb approximately 30% of the blue light from your screens. Our blue light glasses are available without prescription and in different strengths up to +3.5.
Who should use blue light glasses?
In short, blue light glasses are useful for anyone who spends more than 1 hour in front of a screen every day, whether children or adults. The glasses are not just for people who already use prescription glasses. At Luxreaders, you can find blue light glasses with no power and up to power +3.5. This means that both children and adults can use our blue light glasses. If your child does not currently need blue light glasses with power, they still have the option of using the protective glasses when playing on the computer, ipad or mobile phone, so their eyes are less exposed to the blue light they are exposed to during everyday life.
Blue light glasses - does it work?
Blue Light glasses do exactly what they're supposed to - they block out a lot of the harmful blue light that comes from, among other things, digital screens, which many people use a lot in their everyday lives. Many studies show how using screen glasses against blue light can protect your vision and help you to a better night's sleep, reduced fatigue and tendency to headaches, and more good qualities. So if you want to try a pair of glasses that will have positive effects, these glasses will definitely work!
It's no secret that the blue light from our screens has a significant impact on how we feel physically and mentally. With all the new technology, our condition may be at risk of deteriorating to some degree. That's why it's good to find a solution that can prevent these challenges. For example, one customer says that he experiences less tired eyes after sitting in front of his computer screen all day by wearing screen glasses against blue light; another felt that they helped relieve some headache pain that she had been having recently, and finally she also experienced sleeping better at night. Not only do blue light glasses provide relief from tired eyes, headaches and trouble sleeping when looking at your phone or tablet just before bed, they can be worn all day long.
If you're concerned about the long-term effects of blue light on your vision, it's time to invest in a pair of blue light glasses. Not only will they help reduce fatigue, eye strain and sleep problems, they'll also protect your eyes from the harmful blue light emitted by digital screens and other LED light also emitted by lamps. Whether you use your computer for work or play, these glasses are a great way to reduce the strain on your eyes and make the most of your screen time with a clear conscience.
When to use blue light glasses?
Blue light glasses can be used every day. We are exposed to blue light in many contexts. Not only when sitting in front of a digital screen, but also in LED lights, such as lamps, we are exposed to blue light. The natural blue light we are exposed to from the sun is something we need to keep us awake and control our circadian rhythm, and in the case of the sun's rays it is better to protect your eyes with sunglasses. The sun's blue-white rays are important sources of vitamin D and can treat depression, but too much exposure can cause eye inflammation - so make sure you protect your eyes with a pair of sunglasses when the sun is bright in the sky.
Get a good night's sleep and less headaches with blue light glasses
When it comes to our health, we're finally starting to pay more attention to the things that matter. One of the most important aspects of our well-being is our eyesight, and thanks to the ever-growing awareness of blue light radiation, we now have a way to protect our eyes from the harmful effects of digital screens.
Blue light is known to cause eye fatigue and if not prevented or avoided exposure to the blue light can lead to other vision problems over time. By wearing blue light screen glasses, you can reduce exposure to this type of light and protect your vision.
Blue light glasses can help reduce eye strain. If you spend a lot of time looking at digital screens such as computers, phones, ipad or tablet you may find that your eyes feel tired and strained at the end of the day. This is because the blue light emitted from your screen can make our eyes work harder than they need to. If you wear blue light glasses, you can reduce the strain and you'll feel the difference - your eyes will be much more comfortable at the end of the day.
Finally, blue light glasses can also help you sleep better. The blue light emitted from screens can disrupt our natural sleep patterns and it can be difficult to get a good night's sleep.
Most people are aware that blue light can be harmful to vision, but many don't know the exact causes, of which there are unfortunately a number. That's why blue light glasses have become a popular way to improve sleep quality, reduce headaches and fatigue, and improve concentration. Blue light glasses work by blocking blue light waves, which are known to interfere with the production of melatonin, the hormone that helps regulate your sleep cycle. By wearing glasses against blue light, you can - especially in the evening before bed - trick your brain into reducing the production of the melatonin hormone, so your body will calm down and you'll get a better night's sleep - without changing your habits. A good night's sleep is vital to your overall health and well-being, so blue-light glasses can be a valuable addition to your daily routine, especially your evening routine.
