Blue light blocking sunglasses | Guide

You get up in the morning to turn off the alarm on your phone. BOOM, a small burst of blue light upon waking up! You turn on the light to prepare breakfast. BIM, your diode lighting is giving you a blast. Do you open your emails when you arrive at 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 the use of screens outdoors, your eyes risk taking a big hit. Find out how using 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 the 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's said to benefit your circadian rhythm . No need to block this light which ultimately only wants your good.

On the other hand, beyond this beneficial light (between 450 and 500 nanometers of the light spectrum), we find dangerous blue light (from 380 to 450 nanometers) and 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 sand beach, chances are your eyes are getting too much blue light. harmful in addition to UVs and nasty reflections which for once will massacre your cornea.

However, I understand that you do not want to put aside your digital screens as soon as you go out.

Do classic sunglasses protect against blue light?

Yes and no. Sunglasses are primarily designed to protect you from UV rays and reduce glare. So on that side, you're covered.

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

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

Another problem linked to sunglasses is their polarizing technology , which many are equipped with today.

Polarization is often relevant because it further reduces glare (especially near waterways #lamarreauxcanards or snow #sheesttoosoft) but it prevents digital screens from being read correctly because it blocks a large part of the light flow digital (you can also do the test with your phone if you turn it at a certain angle, you will no longer be able to see the screen if you have polarized glasses).

Do sunglasses against blue light exist?

If you did a quick google search before landing on our site, you must have struggled to find some relevant information.

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

Must / Can we wear blue light blocking glasses all the time?

Not necessarily. Our advice is that you should especially use them regularly when using screens. It's a bit like health and old age insurance for your eyes.

In small doses, blue light is not necessarily harmful but it is this repeated exposure, sometimes in less than ideal conditions (sometimes mixed with UV rays) which poses the most risks. Our recommendations for wearing anti-blue light glasses:

-

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

Our recommendation : The Casual / Urban glasses . A go-anywhere glasses that protect you solidly throughout the day. One of the most powerful filters on the market for this level of transparency.

-

✈️ When walking : a good pair of sunglasses does the trick but if you plan to spend a lot of time on your phone or PC outdoors, a classic anti-blue light glasses (which also filter UV rays but less general brightness ) or solar (for optimal protection) is recommended.

Our recommendation : the Horus X solar anti-blue light collection! What else?

-

😴 At bedtime : Using an anti-blue light glasses in the evening is recommended because it helps prepare your brain for falling asleep (the glasses block blue light which prevents the production of melatonin and allows you to fall asleep faster).

Our recce : The One. A glasses with an amber tint which reduces blue light as much as possible to make it easier to fall asleep.
