ABOUT BLUE LIGHT
“Do I need blue light blocking glasses?”
If you are reading this, then yes you do!
According to a Nielsen report, Americans spend an average of 11 hours on screens each day.
Blue light is everywhere, with the sun being the main source. A healthy amount of blue light exposure (like from the sun) is good for you. But in this digital era, phone screens, computer screens, tablet screens, and even your TV expose us to unnatural amounts of artificial blue light and that can have damaging effects.
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 excessive blue light exposure.
Artificial BLUE LIGHT is a high-energy color in the visible light spectrum that is emitted from your devices.
Studies show that overexposure to harmful artificial blue light waves (HEV) can cause things like:
• Eye fatigue / tired eyes
• Eye discomfort
• Sleep disruption
• 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 best protection from digital devices with the least amount color distortion.
Most clear blue light glasses offered today block less than 9% of harmful blue light or distort color with a fuzzy yellow/orange tint.
Rebel Kin glasses are the perfect combination of clarity + effectiveness. Each pair blocks up to 50% of all harmful blue light, so we can maintain the clear lens look.
TIP: If a company ever claims they can block 100% of blue light with a clear lens, that is simply not true. If you want 100% blockage, you will have to resort to ultra-red and dark orange color lenses.
“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).”
