How do blue light glasses work?

Blue light glasses have become increasingly popular in recent years, as more people spend long hours staring at digital screens. These glasses are designed to block or filter out blue light, which is believed to be harmful to our eyes and sleep patterns. But how do blue light glasses actually work? Let's take a closer look. (Because apparently, we're all turning into digital zombies. And blue light glasses are our only hope for salvation.)

First, it's important to understand what blue light is and where it comes from. Blue light is a type of light that has a short wavelength and high energy. It's present in sunlight, as well as in the screens of electronic devices such as smartphones, computers, and televisions. In fact, these devices emit more blue light than any other source. (Because apparently, our devices are like the mean girls of the light world. They're always throwing shade. Literally.)

Blue light has been linked to a variety of health problems, including eye strain, headaches, and disrupted sleep patterns. Some studies have even suggested that prolonged exposure to blue light may increase the risk of certain types of cancer. (Because apparently, blue light is like the silent killer of the digital age. And we're all its unsuspecting victims.)

This is why many people are turning to blue light glasses as a way to protect their eyes and improve their health. (Because apparently, blue light glasses are like the superhero capes of the digital world. They give us the power to fight off the evil forces of blue light.)

So how do blue light glasses work? There are two main types of blue light glasses: those that block blue light and those that filter it out. (Because apparently, not all blue light glasses are created equal. Some are like the bouncers of the eye world, while others are like the TSA agents.)

Blue light filtering glasses Filtering blue light glasses, also known as blue light filters, work differently from blocking glasses. These glasses have lenses that allow blue light to pass through, but filter out certain wavelengths of blue light that are believed to be the most harmful. (Because apparently, blue light filters are like the bouncer who lets in the cool people but keeps out the riffraff.)

Filtering blue light glasses are often clear or have a very slight yellow tint, which makes them more subtle than blocking glasses. (Because apparently, yellow is the new black when it comes to blue light glasses.)

Raie Eyewear uses their exclusive Blue+ ™ technology in their lenses. Unlike their competitors, their blue light filter is not a surface layer or coating. Raie Eyewear's lenses have a blue light pigment technology embedded right into the lens, filtering out as much as 80% of the highest energy wavelengths known to cause digital-eye-strain. (Because apparently, Raie Eyewear's blue light glasses are like the Navy SEALs of the blue light blocking world. They go deep undercover and take out the enemy from within.)

Blue light blocking glasses Blocking blue light glasses, also known as blue light blockers, are designed to completely block blue light from entering your eyes. These glasses have lenses that are made from special materials that absorb blue light before it reaches your eyes. (Because apparently, blue light blockers are like the Secret Service agents of the eye world. They take a bullet for your eyes.)

Some lenses may also block other types of light, such as UV rays. (Because apparently, blue light blockers are like the overachievers of the eyewear world. They don't just block blue light, they block all the light.)

Blocking blue light glasses are typically amber or orange in color, which can take some getting used to. However, many people find that the benefits of reduced eye strain and better sleep patterns are worth it. (Because apparently, looking like a pumpkin is a small price to pay for better eye health.)

In conclusion - Blue light glasses can be a great way to protect your eyes and improve your overall health, especially if you spend a lot of time in front of digital screens. Whether you choose blocking glasses or filtering glasses, be sure to choose a reputable brand and check that they have been tested and approved by a reputable organization. (Because apparently, not all blue light glasses are created equal. Some are like the cheap knockoffs you buy on the street, while others are like the real deal.)

And remember, while blue light glasses can be helpful, it's also important to take regular breaks from screens and practice good eye health habits. (Because apparently, even superheroes need a break sometimes.)
