We first mentioned blue light glasses back in early December. Since then, searches for this product category have increased by 300%. So we decided to dig a bit deeper into this exploding topic.
Blue light glasses (also known as “Blue Light Blocking Glasses”) are tinted glasses that can block blue light coming from laptops, tablets and phone screens. The lenses in blue light glasses were traditionally dark orange. They did a great job blocking blue light, but many people were reluctant to wear them on virtual meetings (i.e. Zoom calls).
Recent advances have led to a translucent version of blue light lenses, which is what has been leading to this surge in interest in this category.
People are becoming aware that blue light exposure can impair eye health and sleep quality. Blokz, which has seen rapid growth, was on of the first to bring clear blue light blocking lenses to market. But they’re far from alone. Felix Gray has a line of stylish clear blue block lenses. And we’ve also discovered a growing niche of blue light filtering “gaming glasses” for people who regularly play video games!
