“While light of any kind can suppress the secretion of melatonin, blue light at night does so more powerfully. Harvard researchers and their colleagues conducted an experiment comparing the effects of 6.5 hours of exposure to blue light to exposure to green light of comparable brightness. The blue light suppresses melatonin for about twice as long as the green light and shifted circadian rhythms by twice as much (3 hours vs. 1.5 hours).”
"Do I need blue light blocking glasses?"
If you are reading this, then yes you do!
Blue light is everywhere - phone screens, computer screens, tablet screens, and even your TV. Do you ever lay in bed at night after hours of being on your phone or laptop - feeling tired, but just can’t fall asleep? That’s because of melatonin suppression caused by blue light exposure.
Blue light is a high-energy color in the visible light spectrum that is emitted artificially from your devices.
Studies show that overexposure to harmful artificial blue light waves can cause things like:
• Eye fatigue / tired eyes
• Eye discomfort
• Dry eyes / itchy eyes / irritated eyes
• Blurry vision / double vision
• Neck pain / shoulder pain / back pain
OUR EYEWEAR HELPS.
Rebel Kin clear blue light blocking lenses provide the MOST protection from digital devices with the least amount color distortion without losing its effectiveness.
Most clear blue light glasses block less than 9% of harmful blue light or distort color with a fuzzy yellow tint. Rebel Kin blocks 100% of the blue light from digital devices at the 300-454nm and 80% at the 455-505 nm level, so we can maintain the clear lens look. If a company ever claims they can block 100% of blue light at the 455 nm level with a clear lens, that is simply not true. If you want 100% blockage at that level, you will have to resort to ultra-red and dark orange color lenses.
Humans are most disrupted by blue light at the 455nm level - that’s why our lenses are the perfect protection. This level of blue light can disrupt our natural sleep patterns, in turn negatively impacting your health, productivity, and reaction time. Blocking 80% at the 455nm level has been proven to make a difference.
For those of us who spend a majority of our day in front of a screen, we are at the greatest risk for eye strain, headaches, and blurred vision. We know that a hustlin’ woman like yourself doesn’t have time in your busy schedule to combat eye strain or discomfort, so that’s why we developed Rebel Kin eyewear to protect your eyes from blue light by reducing it..
