Better than the rest. 15X better, in fact.

We’re cutting through false claims, poor quality add-on coatings, and ineffective dyes that “block” Blue Light. Instead, our proprietary Blue Light filtering solution is fully infused within the lens material, allowing us to filter 15X more of the most important Blue Light. When we say our eyewear does more, we mean it.

Why is it important to filter Blue Light?

With smartphone, tablet, television, and computer usage becoming a standard part of our daily lives, the risk of overexposure to Blue Light can be a concern. Overexposure to Blue Light can negatively impact your health in the following ways:

What is Blue Light?

Visible light from the sun consists of red, orange, yellow, green, and blue light rays. When combined together, what you see is ‘white light.’ Blue Light is on one end of the color spectrum and has the highest energy of these rays. Given its intensity, it can have adverse effects. Red rays are on the other side of the color spectrum and have the longest wavelength and the least energy. Light rays with short wavelengths (i.e. Blue Light) scatter much easier than longer wavelength rays (i.e. red light). This is the reason why the sky appears blue on a cloudless day—your eye picks up on the scattered blue rays rather than the red rays.

Proper amounts of Blue Light can provide various health benefits:

  • 1
    Improve your body’s natural sleep cycle*
  • 2
    Help to improve general mood and ease depression*
  • 3
    Improve memory and core cognitive functions*
  • 4
    Contribute to healthy eye development in children*

The sun is not the only source of Blue Light. In our modern world, the various electronics we depend on in addition to energy-efficient lighting contribute significantly to our exposure to Blue Light.

How Blue Light Glasses came to be.

It’s not only important to understand why you should filter Blue Light, but also why Blue Light blocking glasses were created. According to The Vision Council, a group dedicated to improving vision health, over 80% of Americans spend more than two hours a day on a device that emanates blue light. 67% of this time is spent on more than one device during this time. In our increasingly digital world, lessening time spent in front of screens isn’t easy (or even possible at times.) That’s why Blue Light glasses were specially designed with lenses that filter Blue Light and reduce glare. Both the Vision Council and Dr. Samuel Pierce, president of the American Optometric Association, both recommend using prescription Blue Light glasses or non-prescription Blue Light glasses to decrease the symptoms related to eye strain caused by digital devices. Whether you’re staring at a computer screen for extended periods of time or catching up with late-night reading on your tablet, Felix Gray’s Blue Light blocking prescription glasses and non-prescription glasses may be just what you need to limit the exposure.

The truth: Blue Light is all around us.

You may not see it, but Blue Light is everywhere, all around us. Emanating from the sun, LED lights, and smartphone screens—Blue Light is virtually inescapable. Unfortunately, too much Blue Light can irritate the eyes (often in the form of Digital Eye Strain) and can disrupt sleep patterns. Blue Light can be okay in appropriate doses and boost alertness, memory, and other cognitive functions. However, too much of it can irritate the eyes and disrupt sleep patterns. Too much of a good thing can be an issue.

How can you reduce the impacts of Blue Light overexposure?

With smartphone, tablet, television, and computer usage becoming a standard part of our daily lives, the risk of overexposure to Blue Light can be a concern. Overexposure to Blue Light can negatively impact your health in the following ways:

  • 1
    MINIMIZE SCREEN TIME

    The best way to prevent any adverse effects from Blue Light is to minimize screen time, especially at night. Avoid using your phone or television approximately one hour before you head to bed to prepare your body for the rest it needs.

  • 2
    WEAR BLUE LIGHT GLASSES

    The best Blue Light blocking glasses (also known as anti-Blue Light glasses, Blue Light blocker glasses, or Blue Light protection glasses) filter out Blue Light, reducing eye fatigue, dry eyes, and eye strain.

  • 3
    ADJUST ROOM LIGHTING

    Do your best to keep room lighting levels consistent when using electronic devices. Bouncing from a bright screen to an area of the room that is darker causes eye fatigue.

  • 4
    REDUCE POWER AT NIGHT

    Electronics nowadays have options to dim and shift the wavelengths from blue to red during nighttime. Certain manufacturers are also offering light bulbs that emit less Blue Light as dusk approaches.
