Anti blue light sunglasses | Guide

You get up in the morning to turn off your phone alarm. Boom, a little burst of blue light as soon as you wake up! You turn on the light to prepare breakfast. BIM, your diode light sends you into a tizzy. You open your emails when you get to work? Another burst of blue light.

Blue light is everywhere. And if it is not always bad (part of the spectrum is beneficial for our body), we are clearly overexposed to this artificial blue light. If on top of that you add outdoor screen use, your eyes can take a big hit. Find out how the use of anti blue light sunglasses can be useful to protect you even outdoors. 

Why protect yourself from blue light outdoors

Blue light is everywhere. Even when you open your shutters in the morning (or afternoon, I don't judge), you absorb a good dose! Initially, it's not so bad!

Some of the blue light is absolutely essential to your wakefulness, in pompous terms, it is said to be beneficial to your circadian rhythm. There is no need to block this light, which ultimately only wants to benefit you. 

On the other hand, beyond this beneficial light (between 450 and 500 nanometers of the light spectrum), we find the dangerous blue light (from 380 to 450 nanometers) and the ultraviolet rays (below 380 nanometers).

If you spend time on your mobile while waiting for the bus, or if you have the luxury of working on your laptop from a white sandy beach, there is a good chance that your eyes will receive too much of this harmful blue light in addition to the UVs and the nasty reflections that will massacre your cornea. 

However, I understand that you don't want to put aside your digital screens when you go out. 

Do conventional sunglasses protect against blue light?

Yes and no. Sunglasses are mainly designed to protect you from UV rays and reduce glare. So in that respect, you're covered.

But originally, there was no particular attention to integrate an anti blue light filter, simply because we did not really know the harmful effects.

The sunglasses block UVS and light in general, without targeting blue light. It is filtered to a lesser extent but not completely. 

Another issue with sunglasses is their polarizing technology, which many are equipped with today.

Polarization is often relevant because it allows to reduce glare (especially near rivers #lamarreauxcanards or snow #elleesttropmolle) but it prevents the good reading of digital screens because it blocks a good part of the digital luminous flux (you can test it with your phone if you turn it under a certain angle, you won't be able to see the screen anymore if you have polarized glasses). 

Is there such a thing as blue light sunglasses?

If you did a little google search before coming across our site, you probably struggled to find some relevant information.

The reason? This technology straight out of Tony Stark's laboratory was released in the summer of 2022!

It protects as well from UV, excessive light in summer and also from blue light. It will be an ally of choice for the ultra connected cyborg that you are. To give you an idea, it filters : 

🔆 100% of UVs

🟣 100% of violet blue light at 400 nm 

🔵 96% of harmful blue light between 380 and 450 nm 

The frame is adapted from our Gaming collection with their unique ergonomic design that has already convinced more than 200,000 people worldwide.

It's ultra-comfortable, ultra-resistant (made of polycarbonate, a material used in ballistic protection) and with the best protection on the market combining UV, blue light and glare AND backed by our lifetime warranty. The ultimate sunglasses to keep using your screens outdoors. It was developed and tested under the demanding sun of Portugal, in the arid plains of Georgia, in the unforgiving rocky mountains of Canada (we have a small but well-traveled team!)

Should we / Can we wear anti blue light glasses all the time?

Not necessarily. Our advice is that you should use them regularly when using screens. It is a little bit the health and old age insurance of your eyes.

In small doses, blue light is not necessarily harmful, but it is this repeated exposure, in conditions that are sometimes not ideal (sometimes mixed with UVs), that poses the most risk. Our recommendations for wearing anti blue light glasses: 

-

📂 At work: essential in front of screens. We spend so much time on our PC or smartphones that they have become an extension of ourselves. We are not yet completely bionic so we have to protect ourselves. 

Our review: Casual / Urban eyewear. An all-purpose lens that provides solid protection throughout the day. One of the most powerful filters on the market for this level of transparency. 

-

✈️ On the go: a good pair of sunglasses will do the trick, but if you plan to spend a lot of time on your phone or PC outdoors, a classic blue light filter (which also filters out UV but less overall brightness) or sunglasses (for optimal protection) is recommended.

😴 At bedtime: Using an anti blue light eyeglass at night is recommended as it helps prepare your brain for sleep (the eyeglass blocks the blue light that prevents melatonin production and allows you to fall asleep + quickly).

Our reco: The One eyewear. An eyewear with an amber tint which allows to reduce the blue light to the maximum to facilitate the falling asleep.
