Eyes glued to the screen? Not getting enough sleep? You need these Digital Readers in your life.

Our non-prescription Digital Readers are fitted with blue light protective lenses made by internationally leading lens producer Carl Zeiss Vision. This eyewear is designed to eliminate eye strain by filtering out harmful blue light emitted by smartphones, tablets, computers, televisions and LED lights.

But why should we be avoiding blue light? Let’s start with the basics.  

What is blue light?

All light naturally contains coloured rays. Blue light is found in natural light, as well as artificial blue light that comes from our digital screens such as computers and phones.

So, not all blue light is bad, we need natural blue light released from the sun to heighten our energy and mood allowing us to stay awake during the day time. The problem we have now, is over exposure to blue light being emitted from our screens. 


Why filter blue light?

Recent studies show over exposure to blue light from screens causes an imbalance in our circadian rhythm, causing a disruption to our bodies natural sleep patterns from reducing the production of key sleep hormone, Melatonin. Reducing your exposure to blue light helps you sleep better by enhancing your sleep cycles.

As well as increasing the quality of sleep, wearing these frames can also help avoid eye fatigue, visual stress and decrease the risk of macular degeneration.
