Seeing light at night from computers, phones, and even ordinary lightbulbs has been scientifically proven to disrupt sleep via melatonin suppression and numerous other pathways. Natural melatonin production and the numerous other metabolic pathways of the circadian rhythm are vital for long-term human health. In the short-term, they are vital for deep and restorative sleep.

 

Luckily, it is not the entire spectrum of light that has this effect, but only the blue and green portion of the spectrum. When we found out that typical 'blue-blockers' as they are commonly known only block a fraction of this range, we invented the original red-lens blue blocking glasses. Plus, we are the only company committed to providing transparent and accurate data on the properties of our lens (hint: nothing is 100%).

We use high toughness polycarbonate lenses with optical properties originally engineered for high-power laser environments. Our red lenses look beautiful and are 3rd party verified to block over 99.8% of the total light across the entire spectrum known to trigger melatonin suppression (400-570 nm), far surpassing the capabilities of yellow or orange lenses, let alone clear lens 'blue-blockers.'
