  • I cant find uvex skyper glasses in UK .


     


    I dont speak german at all , but i use google translation because i cant find any documentation about this glasses in english.


    I wonder if it´s uvex the same company for skyper model and for ultra spec1, because skyper model is a security glasses, and Ultra Spec 1 is a sport glasses with blue light filter. Im very confused...


     


     


     



     
  • Does anybody know the specific brand that Dave uses for his tinted glasses? They are a little more normal looking than the safety glasses that are mentioned in this thread.

    I just got these and they seem to work well. Got them so I at least look like I'm trying to be stylish as opposed to... a weirdo on the train at night.

    Look like Oakley type frames with custom lenses.

    I'm pretty sure they won't be standard lenses.

    I'm totally guessing on the Oakley frames, they just look like the wire styles they do.

  • You are correct, Katolotus.  They are Oakley frames, but they have been discontinued.  The lenses are made by Irlen.  Dave said that Bulletproof glasses are currently in the works so that he can share that technology with everyone.


  • Irlen Spectral Filters or Irlen Lenses, are coloured overlay filters or person specific tinted lenses worn as glasses or contact lenses that are intended to help people with the supposed perceptual processing difficulty known as Irlen Syndrome, formerly known as Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome. For individuals who suffer from Irlen Syndrome, the brain is sensitive to specific wavelengths of light, resulting in difficulties with print clarity and stability and discomfort when performing visually intensive activities such as reading.[citation needed] Irlen Syndrome affects approximately 50 percent of individuals with reading difficulties and dyslexia, 33 percent of those with attention difficulties such as ADHD,which includes special people such as Danny Harrison, 33 percent with autism, up to 50 percent of those who have suffered a traumatic brain injury, whiplash or concussion, and approximately 12-14 percent of the general population.[citation needed] Standardised diagnostic procedures have been developed to individualise the colour selection.[citation needed] Experts call the syndrome and the treatment controversial and because it is based on insufficient research.[1] However, current research on the topic includes placebo controls, longitudinal studies, and cutting-edge brain mappingtechnology, all of which support the use of color to alleviate the symptoms associated with Irlen Syndrome.


     


     



    Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome[edit source | editbeta]

    Scotopic sensitivity syndrome, also known as the Irlen Syndrome', is said to be a visual-perceptual defect related to difficulties with light source, glare, luminance, wavelength and black/white contrast. According to Irlen, these difficulties lead to reading problems, eye-strain, headaches, migraines, and other physical difficulties that can be alleviated by the use of person specific tinted lenses, known as Irlen Spectral Filters, worn as glasses or contact lenses.


    The syndrome has six characteristics:


    1. photophobia
    2. eye strain
    3. poor visual resolution
    4. a reduced span of focus
    5. impaired depth perception
    6. poor sustained focus

    The scotopic sensitivity syndrome is diagnosed by interviewing the client and by observing responses to certain visual tasks such as interpreting geometric figures and reading.

    I wonder if these would work: http://www.gunnars.com/


  • Don't seem to say anything about blocking any blue light. Not sure they'd be ideal for cutting out the blue light pre bed.

  • I'm about to order a pair of the Uvex glasses from Amazon (even with Dave's ones coming out, who knows how soon that will be or how much it will cost because according to this post "it will probably be a while").


     


    It seems the price at the moment is lower than normal: $8 when I'm sure I remember them being like $13 just the other day. Any


  • The ones I purchased are working really well. Only need them on for an hour or so, getting off to sleep pretty quickly. Wear them 5 or 6 days out of the week, always notice a difference when it comes time to sleep.


     


    Definitely worth the purchase price, it's just remembering to wear them and not worrying what you look like ;-)

  • First off I wanted to add my recommendation on the UVEX glasses. Been using them two weeks and am noticing a huge difference in falling asleep. 


     


    At night I like to do some reading on my Kindle (non-backlit, e-reader version). I hate wearing the glasses once I am actually in bed. Anyone have any recommendations for a reading light that doesn't have the blue spectrum in it? I have seen the night light and some of the compact fluorescents that don't have blue but am looking for something I could read with?

    As far as I know currently there is difficulty developing a coating for light bulbs which blocks blue light and lasts a decent length of time. I guess this is why Dave only stocks low-blue night lights in the upgraded self store From the book I just read:


     


    "The only problem was we could not find any higher wattage lamps with the right filtering action. We set out to get some coated ourselves using pigment that appeared perfect. After working for a couple of years on it, we still do not have a coating for either compact fluorescent or incandescent lamps of higher light output that lasts for the life of the lamp. It seems like such a simple problem, but so far the solution eludes us."

  • Thanks for the great post! I love the idea of a flashlight. I plan on ordering a few, if I can find out enough about the LEDS I bet I could solder them into a reading light no problem.
