You want your gaming glasses but you wonder if...
… Can you wear them all the time?
If you are deeply in love with your glasses, you can wear them as much as you want.
If you want to change your style during the day, on the go, glasses with a less important blue light filter (and therefore less yellow) are really not bad. Look at a "casual" version , more relaxed and goes everywhere.
Anyway all models can be worn all day.
…They are also useful outdoors?
Gaming glasses are useful during your gaming sessions or when you spend a long time in front of the screen.
They protect against certain ultraviolet rays of the sun, but it's not designed for that , so don't try to look directly at our star… instead focus on the ones you find in Mario.
Anyway if you play outside on your phone (or you spend a lot of time chatting on whatsapp, viber or other), the glasses can be used to protect your performance. Otherwise we created sunglasses for the screens !
…They will transform your vision?
As with sunglasses, gaming lenses have a sometimes strong tint that can alter certain colors. Often yellow, this tint is in fact a filter that reduces blue light from screens.
Gamer glasses are mostly designed to make your vision sharper with other features like anti-reflective. But, if you ever see killer bunnies, it's either that you're playing a new Ubisoft game or you ate something fishy.
... Is blue light really dangerous?
Yes and no. Blue light is everywhere. Its main source is the sun, so it's particularly useful for regulating your sleep/wake cycles. On the other hand, an overposition to this blue light at the wrong time of the day + a concentrated exposure to the artificial blue light of our screens make it a major enemy. Headaches, eye pain, disturbed sleep and in the long term a potential impact on AMD...
… You will have the class and if you will be a killer in game?
We are sure and certain that you will have serious class with gaming glasses (especially if you choose Horus X). As far as your skills and performance are concerned, the best thing is to try. We trust you! If you're here, you're already the best!
