The Science

The Science

UV400 glasses block out harmful blue wavelengths that cause general eye problems from monitors and screens.

Blue wavelengths are useful during daylight hours since they boost attention and mood. However, viewing these wavelengths all day can cause major problems. Why?

Generally, long hours in front of a bright screen that constantly blasts blue wavelengths can be dangerous to your eyes. Especially since you can be so focused that you blinks per minute goes down and number of saccades (rapid eye movements) goes up. This can cause a lot of strain on the eyes and create eye fatigue.

According to Harvard Medical School, there are several health issues that these blue lights can create:

  • Interferes with circadian rhythm which affects sleep
  • Long-term, nighttime disruption from blue light may contribute to the causation of cancer, diabetes, heat disease and obesity.
  • Suppresses nightly secretion of melatonin (sleep hormone), which might explain association with cancer

These glasses help reduce the amount of blue light that enters the iris with a UV400 lens that helps filter these wavelengths. 

A study done at John Carroll University found that participants that wore blue light blocking glasses at night, saw an improvement in their sleep and had their symptoms of ADHD reduced.

According to Science Daily, the benefits of blue light blocking glasses are:

  • Better sleep
  • Avoids postpartum depression
  • Prevents Seasonal Affective Disorder 

Visible spectrum of colors

The copper color of the lenses also helps to improve contrast in the light you see on screens. Blue light has shorter wavelengths, thus making it scatter easier than most other colors. This makes focusing a lot more difficult. This is why removing blue light can help improve your vision's sharpness and depth perception. 

These also don't create any color distortion, which is important when using these glasses for gaming.
