Anti Blue Light Sunglasses | Guide

You wake up in the morning to turn off your phone alarm. BAM, a burst of blue light right from the start! You switch on the lights to prepare breakfast. POW, the LED lighting hits your eyes. You check your emails when you arrive at work? Another burst of blue light.

Blue light is everywhere. While not all of it is harmful (a portion of the spectrum is beneficial for our body), we are clearly overexposed to this artificial blue light. If you also add screen usage outdoors, your eyes might be at risk. Discover how using blue light-blocking sunglasses can be helpful in protecting you even in outdoor settings.

Why you must protect your eyes from blue light even outside

Blue light is present everywhere. Even when you open your shutters in the morning (or afternoon, no judgment here), you're exposed to a good amount of it! Initially, it's not necessarily a bad thing!

A portion of blue light is actually essential for your wakefulness. In fancy terms, it's said to be beneficial for your circadian rhythm. There's no need to block this light, as it ultimately has your well-being in mind.

However, beyond this beneficial light range (between 450 and 500 nanometers of the light spectrum), we encounter dangerous blue light (from 380 to 450 nanometers) and ultraviolet rays (below 380 nanometers).

If you spend time on your mobile phone while waiting for the bus, or if you have the luxury of working on your laptop from a white sandy beach, there's a high chance that your eyes will be exposed to an excessive amount of this harmful blue light, in addition to UV rays and harsh reflections that can potentially harm your cornea.

However, I understand that you don't want to completely give up your digital screens whenever you go outside.

Do classic sunglasses protect from blue light?

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

But originally, there wasn't much attention given to incorporating an anti-blue light filter into sunglasses simply because the harmful effects of blue light were not well understood.

Therefore, sunglasses block UV rays and light in general, but they don't specifically target blue light. Blue light is filtered to some extent, but not completely.

Another issue related to sunglasses is the polarizing technology that many of them are equipped with today.

Polarization is often beneficial as it further reduces glare, especially near bodies of water or snowy environments. However, it can hinder the proper viewing of digital screens because it blocks a significant portion of the digital light flux. You can actually test this by tilting your phone while wearing polarized glasses, and you'll find that the screen becomes difficult to see.

Do the perfect blue light blocking sunglasses exist?

If you did a quick Google search before landing on our website, you probably struggled to find some relevant information.

The reason is that this technology, straight out of Tony Stark's laboratory, was released during the summer of 2022!

It provides protection against UV rays, excessive brightness during the summer, and blue light as well. Therefore, it will be an excellent ally for the ultra-connected cyborg that you are. To give you an overview, it filters:

🔆 100% of UV rays

🟣 100% of violet blue light at 400 nm

🔵 96% of harmful blue light between 380 and 450 nm 

The frame is taken and adapted from our Gaming collection, featuring a unique ergonomic design that has already convinced over 200,000 people worldwide.

It is ultra-comfortable, ultra-durable (made of polycarbonate, a material used in ballistic protection), and offers the best market protection combining UV, blue light, and glare, all backed by our lifetime warranty. The ultimate sunglasses to continue using your screens outdoors. They have been developed and tested under the demanding sun of Portugal, in the arid plains of Georgia, and in the unforgiving Rocky Mountains of Canada (we have a small but well-traveled team!).

Do we/Can we wear blue light glasses all the time?

Not necessarily. Our advice is to use them regularly, especially when using screens. It's like an insurance for the health and longevity of your eyes.

In small doses, blue light is not necessarily harmful. However, it is the repeated exposure, often in less-than-ideal conditions (sometimes mixed with UV rays), that poses the greatest risks. Our recommendations for wearing blue light glasses are:


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

Our recommendation: The Urban glasses. A versatile pair of glasses that provides solid protection throughout the day. One of the most powerful filters on the market for this level of transparency.


✈️ On the go: a good pair of sunglasses will do the trick, but if you plan on spending a lot of time on your phone or laptop outdoors, a classic anti-blue light glasses (which also filters UV but less general brightness) or sunglasses (for optimal protection) are recommended.

Our recommendation: the Horus X collection of sunglasses with anti-blue light protection! What else?


😴 At bedtime: Using anti-blue light glasses in the evening is recommended as it helps prepare your brain for sleep (the glasses block the blue light that hinders melatonin production and allows you to fall asleep faster).

Our recommendation: The One glasses. These glasses have an amber tint that minimizes blue light to facilitate falling asleep.
