Blue Light Glasses for Kids: Specially designed for today’s screen-focused youth
Blue Free Optical kids’ blue light glasses are specifically designed to protect younger eyes from the dangers of blue light exposure. And, because we know our glasses are only effective if kids are willing to wear them, we offer styles that young people can get excited about. Prescription and non-prescription lenses are available.
Benefits of Blue Free Optical Lenses
Don’t settle on a partial solution for your child’s eyes. Blue Free Optical offers the only kids’ blue light glasses that filter out 100% of dangerous blue-spectrum light. Our two-part solution provides complete 455nm protection during the day, and expands that coverage at night to filter out blue light up to 550nm, for optimal protection, day or night.
A kid’s world should be bright and colorful! That’s why we use natural melanin built into our lenses to mimic the filtration curve of the eye, so your child can enjoy all the details, without the dangers.
Kids are rough on glasses, but our frames can take it. Durable, heat-resistant, hypoallergenic, and easy to clean, all of our frames are handcrafted from the strongest premium cellulose acetate.
Other blue-light glasses providers use lenses coated in blue-filtering resin, resulting in only partial blue-light protection. We take it deeper, by incorporating advanced technologies into the lenses themselves, for the most effective blue light protection available today.
What Sets Blue Free Optical Apart
THE TWO-PART SOLUTIONChildren are more susceptible to blue light at night than they are during the day. Blue Free Optical offers the industry’s only complete, two-part kid’s blue light glasses solution. Our tinted day/night lenses provide full protection, so kids can enjoy full days and restful nights.
The Science Behind the Solutions
We live in a world of screens. From the computers in our homes and offices, to the mobile devices in our pockets, we’re spending more time staring at digital screens than ever before. In fact, according to a recent Nielsen Total Audience Report, the average American adult spends nearly 12 hours — well over half of the waking day — interacting with digital screens.
Unfortunately, so much screen time can have a negative effect on our health — in the form of damaging blue light.
In-depth, ongoing scientific research is illuminating the dangers of blue light exposure. From disrupting circadian sleep rhythms and suppressing the body’s natural melatonin production, to hampering mitochondrial repair and increasing oxidative damage to your cells, the hazards of blue-spectrum light are wide reaching and significant.
Blue Free Optical is committed to combating the dangers of blue-spectrum light, using reliable science and unmatched engineering to create the world’s only complete blue light gaming solution.
There are a lot of different factors that contribute to restful sleep, but one of the most impactful is light exposure. The body depends on certain wavelengths of light to determine which hours it should be awake and when it should be resting. These circadian rhythms regulate many important body functions.
Unfortunately, high-energy blue light (such as the kind emitted by digital screens, LEDs, and fluorescent lighting) throws these rhythms out of balance. This has been shown to disrupt the body’s production of melatonin, an essential chemical that helps promote tiredness and restful sleep. This can be extremely damaging, particularly to children who rely so much on restful sleep to help their bodies develop and grow.
Wearing Blue Free Optical glasses during remote schooling, recreational screen time, and while under artificial lights helps kids maintain their body’s natural circadian rhythms, allowing for deeper, more restful sleep at night, and improved health overall.
