  • Clear lenses vs. tinted lenses
  • Real Blue light glasses
  • Conclusion

    Blue light glasses WORK. 

    There are hundreds of studies and thousands of testimonials from people that share all the benefits they have experienced once they have started wearing blue light glasses on a daily basis. The most common ones are:

  • Better quality of sleep due to increased melatonin production.
  • Reduced headaches and tiredness as a result of having better sleep.
  • Reduced eye strain by decreasing the amount of exposure to blue light.

    But people also report:

  • Increased energy levels due to better sleep.
  • Hormone regulation after the circadian rhythm or internal body clock has adjusted to the new routine.
  • Better mood as a result of all the previous benefits.

    Clear lenses vs. Tinted lenses

    It's commonly understood that clear lenses block a lower percentage of blue light compared to tinted lenses. The effectiveness of different lens types may vary depending on the amount of blue light they filter.

    Tinted lenses are often chosen for their higher blue light filtering capabilities, especially during evening hours. The perception is that by filtering out more blue light, these lenses might support natural sleep cues.

    Our DayPro lenses have been tested by the Light Industry Association and they block 95% of blue light. 

    Our NightPro lenses have also been tested by the Light Industry Association and they block 100% of blue and green light.

    The yellow/orange and red color in the lenses neutralises the blue and as a result, your eyes will not perceive it.

    We encourage users to consider their lifestyle and preferences when choosing between clear and tinted lenses.

    Although clear lenses are marketed as blue light glasses, the lack of pigment in the lenses means they will barely block any blue light.

    When selecting blue light glasses, consider your typical exposure to blue light and personal preferences. Tinted lenses are often chosen by those looking for higher blue light filtration.


    The choice between clear and tinted blue light glasses often comes down to personal preference and perceived effectiveness. While some users report better improvements in comfort and sleep patterns with tinted lenses, individual experiences may vary. 

    We recommend exploring options to find what works best for you, without forgetting about the science.
