Anti-blue light glasses at Parisian opticians
Yes, some opticians offer blue light blocking glasses in stores.
The advantage of going to a store is that you can receive advice from professionals. You will also be able to try the pairs and have them adapted to your vision (Horus X does not do this yet, but we have it planned for the end of 2023).
The disadvantages are nevertheless numerous (and this is also why we created Horus X):
🤑 The price which can be prohibitive: indeed, opticians go through a lot of intermediaries, which necessarily increases costs;
🤔 The lack of information on the technology used for glasses because few opticians know the exact needs for filtering harmful blue light (380-450 nm);
🤕 Equipment that is not necessarily suitable for gaming or screen pros;
🏄🏽♂️ Ranges that look more like riding a fashion than really serving you;
😅 Dealing with bad-tempered merchants (while we are always in a good mood)
Find local shops or have them delivered in Paris by other sites
In Paris, we have a large selection of really nice concept stores. You can find anti blue light glasses from beautiful French brands like Izipizi or Nooz.
These brands sometimes even have their own addresses. The downside is that their blue light filtering is rather low if you're looking for really effective glasses.
There are also many other online stores that also offer to buy blue light blocking glasses with delivery in the Paris region.
However, be careful what you buy. You can find anything and everything on the Internet, but you're not going to be taught that. In terms of filtration, it will be really complicated to find good filtrations.
Here are our few basic tips for finding a good pair of blue light blocking glasses on online stores:
🛡 Ideally, the lenses should have powerful blue light filtering technology on the harmful spectrum between 380 and 450 nanometers;
✅ Make sure the products meet European standards;
👍 Look at product reviews to get an idea (beware of fake reviews, look at negative reviews, see how brands manage and take a step back).

What are the dangers of blue light for your eyes (quick recap)?
Blue light is produced by the Sun , LED lighting and screens . As this page is aimed at Parisians, we will focus on lighting and screens.
We detail what blue light is in our dedicated guide , but to summarize, here are the harmful effects of blue light:
Headaches : one of the main reasons why our customers buy our pairs of glasses. You are perhaps on this page for this reason elsewhere;
Itchy eyes : Prolonged exposure to screens causes dry eyes. That's what makes your eyes sting when you play for a long time;
Visual disturbances : another consequence of prolonged gaming is that your eyes strain for a long time, making your vision less and less precise;
Lack of sleep : the natural blue light from the sun is used by our body to keep us awake. Looking at a blue light at 2 a.m. makes our brain feel a bit lost, causing sleep disruption. To go further on the effects of blue light on sleep, you can take a look at our dedicated page .
AMD : This is Age-Related Macular Degeneration and is a long-term risk (still under study) of high-energy blue light. To go further on the role that blue light plays in AMD, we advise you to read the various ANSES reports.
