Blue Light

Blue Light? 

You know what they say, the bluer the better! Well, that's not entirely true when it comes to blue light. Naturally found in sunlight, this vibrant wavelength is also emitted from our beloved digital devices, like computers, tablets, and smartphones. And let's be real, we're practically glued to those things these days.

During the day, blue light is like a superhero sidekick, boosting our attention, reaction times, and mood. It even helps regulate our sleepiness and alertness cycles, which is handy when you've had one too many coffees and your eyelids start feeling heavier than a rock concert's curtain.

But here's the catch – while the sun produces enough blue light to make a smurf jealous, our electronic gadgets are no slouches either. We're exposed to more artificial blue light than ever before, and our poor eyeballs are like, "Whoa, whoa, slow down there, partner!"

You see, blue light scatters more easily than most other visible light, making it harder for your eyes to focus during extended screen time. It's like trying to read tiny text through a kaleidoscope – not fun.

But fear not, my vision-conscious friends! Raie Eyewear has got your back (and your eyes) covered. Introducing our blue light filter lenses – a coating that blocks more blue light than a bouncer at a nightclub blocks the underage crowd.

With this nifty addition, you can scroll, binge-watch, and work those late nights without feeling like you've been staring at the sun for hours. Your melatonin production (the sleep hormone) will thank you, and you'll sleep like a well-fed baby instead of tossing and turning like a insomniac acrobat.

Want to add this game-changing filter to your new specs? Just ask our friendly Raie Eyewear team members in-store, and they'll hook you up faster than a kid unwrapping a present on Christmas morning.

But wait, there's more! We've got some pro tips to help you reduce eye strain and fatigue, because we really do care about your peepers:

  1. Embrace the dark side (mode, that is): Most devices let you adjust the settings to a warmer tone or dark mode, reducing blue light exposure and eye strain.
  2. Put down the screens an hour before bedtime: We know, we know, it's harder than giving up chocolate for Lent, but limiting your screen time before hitting the hay will help you produce more melatonin and sleep like a log.
  3. Follow the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look 20 meters away for 20 seconds. It's like a mini eye-cation, giving your peepers a well-deserved break from all that screen time.

So, what are you waiting for? Ditch those eye strain woes and embrace the blue light-blocking goodness of Raie Eyewear's filter lenses. Your eyes (and your sense of humor) will thank us!
