How do blue light blocking glasses help?

Blue-violet light from digital screens travels in short wavelengths. It tends to scatter and misfocus, and is an unwelcome source of glare and visual fatigue. As a result, you end up straining and blinking a lot less than you should. Blue light glasses help by reducing these symptoms.
Our Blue Light Filter glasses block 94% of high-energy blue-violet light, as well as almost 100% of invisible UV A and UV B rays. During a long day behind the screen, wearing blue light glasses can help your eyes feel more comfortable.

Prescription

We don’t offer set styles of women’s or men’s blue light glasses, as such – better than that, you can transform any of our frames by adding our filter to your prescription lenses. Neat, right?
Adding a Blue Light Filter costs an additional €25. If you already have a pair of our glasses, the cost to replace your lenses (reglaze), including a Blue Light Filter, is €50 + €25.

Non-prescription blue light glasses

No prescription? No problem. Our Screen Glasses are frames with non-prescription lenses that have a patented Blue Light Filter — available for €110. Screen glasses are a high-technology comfort filter that effectively reduces the scatter glare from digital screens — helping you to manage long hours of digital screen time even if you don’t have a prescription. Amazingly, with only a subtle tint they do not affect colour discrimination when worn. Our blue light glasses also efficiently block up to 94% of high-energy blue-violet light and almost 100% harmful UV from any light source.

FAQ

Blue light glasses are glasses with a special filter that helps block blue light. Apart from the sun, digital screens like laptops, phones and TVs emit blue light. Constant exposure can lead to eye strain.

In a nutshell, they protect your eyes against the effects of blue light – such as tiredness and dryness – by blocking it out.

If you’re staring at a screen for long periods of time (that would be us all, then), wearing them might be more comfortable for your eyes. That’s because they block blue light, which causes eye strain when we are over-exposed to it. Our Blue Light Filter glasses also block nearly all harmful UV A and UV B rays, most of which comes from sunlight.

Our blue light glasses contain a filter which is integral within the lenses. It’s not just a coating that’s added on top of the lens, which is what you’ll find with many other glasses that block blue light.

Adding our Blue Light Filter to your glasses will offer both comprehensive UV and blue light protection in a virtually clear lens. In fact, the level of protection is on a par with sunglasses – meaning that your regular glasses are shielding your eyes from the long-term harmful effects of solar radiation, even if you aren’t wearing sunglasses. No such thing as being overprotected, friends.

That depends on what your definition of “worth it” is. For us, anything that helps with eye strain when we’ve maxed out on screen time can only be a good thing.

Blue light glasses can do, as they help to reduce eye strain, which often leads to headaches.

Studies show that high-intensity blue light from the sun is a health risk, as it can damage the retina. However, lower intensity blue light from digital screens is still being researched.

Blue light blocking glasses have a subtle pale blueish tint, so we recommend buying darker-coloured acetate or metal frames if you’re bothered by this. The blueish tint is most noticeable when paired with transparent frames.

Let’s talk about the two different types of blue light affecting the eye. There’s blue-turquoise light, which comes from the sun, is happily absorbed by the eyes, and helps your brain tell the difference between day and night. Then there’s blue-violet light, which can be harmful to the retina and tire your eyes, especially if – like us – you’re spending a big chunk of your time in front of a computer screen or phone. This is where our anti blue light glasses come in.

Everyone who has any amount of screen time, with any amount of blue light exposure. At this very moment, you’re likely reading this on a screen. Our blue light glasses can create a little more comfort for your eyes — for long office days, gaming sessions, or quick emails before bed. As a bonus, your eyes will be protected from harmful UV light from the sun as well.

Our Blue Light Filter is available in combination with our new ultra-thin Premium Lenses, which will look great at low to moderate prescription glasses. But please note at high prescriptions above +/- 6 SPH our clear Premium Lenses are recommended instead as they will look more attractive.

Screen Glasses are a pair of dashing Ace & Tate frames with the Blue Light Filter added to the lenses. But we can add our Blue Light Filter to any glasses — including prescription ones. Which means that every pair of glasses have the potential to be blue light glasses.
