Can I wear my Blueblocker glasses all day?

Can I wear my Blueblocker glasses all day?

Protecting your eyes from artificial blue light is a good idea. But should you wear your Blueblocker glasses all day long? This is a question we are often asked by customers, so we would like to shed some light on it.

Can I wear my Blueblocker glasses all day?

Our Blueblocker glasses should be worn in the evening hours after sunset. During the day, blue light is perfectly normal and helps increase your dopamine, serotonin and cortisol levels. This is important for your overall well-being. Atypical, however, are the amounts of new light sources that often have a very large blue component (blue peak). This comes, for example, from smartphones, laptops, computer monitors, televisions or office lights.

Blue light - LED, smartphone, tablet, TV

This can also be very stressful for your eyes during the day. That's why there are also workplace or computer glasses. These have clear lenses and serve the purpose of filtering out only the peaks of the blue light spectrum. Such glasses make sense if you have to work a lot at the screen. When you're not at a screen, it's best not to wear glasses at all during the day to get as much natural light as possible.

Should I wear Blueblocker glasses outdoors?

No, if you are outside in natural sunlight, you should not wear Blueblock glasses. The same applies indoors without artificial indoor lighting. For example, if you are sitting at home by the window reading a book (not on your tablet or smartphone), you should not wear glasses. The natural blue light of the sun is normal and good for you; you should not filter it unnecessarily.

Do not block the natural blue light of the sun

Sunlight during the day - sleep-wake rhythm

Our sleep-wake rhythm and our internal clock are significantly influenced by natural sunlight during the day. Therefore, it is important for us to get as much natural light as possible. So when you go outside during the day, you shouldn't wear blueblocker glasses, otherwise you'll prevent the sun's natural frequencies from entering your eyes. This disrupts your circadian rhythm and can also affect your melatonin levels. Blueblocker glasses are designed to filter blue light from your environment in the evening. After sunset, the most light people used to have was from campfires or candles. The spectrums we have today from all the gadgets and screens are not natural and suggest to our bodies that it is still daytime. With Blueblocker glasses, we can filter out these spectrums completely and thus tune our body for the sleep to come.

Why should I wear Blueblocker glasses in the evening?

The crucial and biggest problem of blue light after sunset is its effect on our body. After dark, the light tricks our brain into thinking that it is still daytime. This interrupts our sleep cycle and can have a negative effect on our health, especially over a long period of time. Orange or yellow lenses that block 100% of the blue spectrum (orange lenses even block a large portion of the green spectrum) can help you improve your sleep quality.

Blueblocker glasses blocks blue light

No matter if you are sitting at the computer or watching a TV show in the evening, the Blueblocker glasses help you to relax your eyes. In addition, the melatonin production is not inhibited by blue light. This ensures that you get tired and can have a positive effect on your sleep.
