For people who are indoors under artificial light and in front of digital screens during the day, we have developed our both our ScreenTime Clear Lens Computer Glasses, and our DayMax Yellow Lens Glasses range. Both of these blue light computer glasses are designed to drastically reduce, but not entirely eliminate, a user’s exposure to blue light while engaged with computers or other blue light emitting devices and lighting over the course of the day. Both the ScreenTime and DayMax range are also suitable to use as gaming glasses.
The ScreenTime Computer Glasses range are specifically designed to permit the good light responsible for alertness, mood, brain activity, and optimal health, whilst filtering the harmful artificial blue light that leads to digital eye strain, headaches, and macular degeneration.
Our unique filtering technology reduces blue light by 50% across the entire blue light spectrum, but more specifically, it targets blue light at the 455nm range and filters it by 50%; this is an important feature to look for when selecting a pair of computer glasses, as the strongest wavelength of light emitted from digital devices and LED lighting is exactly at 455nm. When it comes to blue light glasses for computer use that are on the market, if no details are provided about the exact wavelengths being filtered, it’s more than likely the computer glasses will not provide adequate blue light protection for daytime use. The ScreenTime glasses are perfect for people who require a clear lens with no colour alternation or distortion or are in often in social and office environments during the day.
The DayMax glasses provide the next level up on the computer glasses and give maximum protection against blue light during the daytime. These can often be described as light sensitivity glasses, gaming glasses, or mood bosting glasses.
The light yellow DayMax lenses use propriety filtering technology to specifically target and to block 100% of blue light in the lower range of the spectrum at 400 – 455nm; this is the most energetic and damaging light emitted from screens and modern lighting. The DayMax lens will still allow all the beneficial blue light through still which is in the higher part of the blue light spectrum from 455 - 500nm, this is the blue light that is essential during the day for optimal hormone production, energy, positive mood, and motivation. The DayMax is ideal for people who are light sensitive, on screens all day, regularly suffer from migraines and eye strain, or are prone to anxiety, depression, or low mood. These symptoms indicate the need greater protection against artificial blue light than our ScreenTime computer glasses can provide.
The ScreenTime Clear Lens Computer Glasses filter 50% light ranging from 400 to 500 nanometers. What sets the ScreenTime glasses apart from all the other computer glasses is our proprietary lens technology; this filters 50% of blue light at 455 nanometers, this is where the most energetic, damaging light emitted from screens, LED’s, and other modern artificial lighting; Most other companies supplying clear blue blocking glasses are only blocking 15% - 20% of blue light and are not blocking any at the 455nm range where it matters the most!
We have specially designed our lenses in unique way that the most harmful wave lengths of blue light are blocked that cause eye strain, headaches, migraines, and macular degeneration, and at the same time still providing crystal clear vision without any colour distortion.
Many glasses that claim to be blue light blocking glasses on the market are just cheap glasses with an insufficient blue light reflective coating applied to them. These cheap glasses only filter anywhere from 5-15% of blue light which is not sufficient. No science has gone into creation of blue light lens to ensure its blocking blue light in line with peer reviewed academic literature.
All of BlockBlueLight's Blue Light Glasses are evidence based, science backed, and align with the academic research on blue light. We use a special pigment embedded into the lens which absorbs the blue light as it passes through (instead of just a basic reflective coating), this allows our ScreenTime clear lens computer glasses to filter 50% of blue light and specifically target 50% of blue light at 455nm, and our DayMax yellow lens to block 100% of the damaging blue light from 400-455nm, while still allowing all the beneficial blue light from 460 - 500nm through.
455nm is the most damaging wavelengths of blue light emitted from modern screens and lighting so a clear lens needs to be filtering this by at least 50%, and a yellow lens should be blocking 100% of this harmful blue light wavelength for maximum protection.
BlockBlueLight shows its lens reports for each lens on our website. Located under each individual product. No other company will show you their lens reports as they have something to hide, we do not and are happy to share these with you.
Our daytime blue light computer glasses are very different to the add on blue light filter offered by optometrists to put on your prescription lenses. Our ScreenTime clear lens glasses filter blue light by 50% across the whole blue light spectrum and specifically target blue light at 455nm, and for greater protection or DayMax yellow lens completely blocks 100% of the damaging 455nm blue light spike, this is the peak wavelength of blue light emitted from screens and lighting, there is not many blue light glasses for daytime use on the market that do that.
Most computers glasses and coatings applied to prescription lenses filter blue light up to 430nm and none at 455nm so they are pretty useless! The problem with the filter on the prescription lenses if you ask the optometrist the specs of the filter they wouldn’t have a clue, they just call its a generic “blue light filter” with no details at all! I can guarantee you these won't be filtering any blue light past 430nm, as to filter past 430nm you need a pigment embedded in the lens to absorb the blue light, the coating they apply just reflects blue light and that type of coating cant reflect blue light past 430nm.
Not all blue light glasses are created equal so do your research before buying some to ensure they provide adequate protection.
Yes, we have created our fit-over range of daytime blue light computer glasses which have been specifically designed for this reason. This allows you to put our light weight fitover glasses over the top of your glasses to provide you with the best blue light protection.
You can continue to wear your existing reading or prescription glasses, and our fit-over glasses will nicely fit over them and provide maximum protection against blue light.
We strongly recommend people DO NOT get prescription glasses with the blue light filter applied directly to the reading or prescription lenses, as the blue light will always be filtered even when you don't need it to be. You only want to filter blue light when on screens or under artificial lights, any other time you want to ensure your eyes are getting as much unfiltered light as possible! This is because natural blue light is very good for us and helps regulate or hormones and circadian rhythms. So using our fitover blue light glasses allows you to have the blue light protection when you need it, and when you don’t need it you simply take them off and can still leave your reading or prescription glasses on.
