  • taking the plunge while I'm here in Thailand and just been into an opticians close to my hotel. Gave them my prescription and they are sending it to Bangkok to get the lenses done and tinted orange at 60%. Hoping these will block blue light as well as my other glasses and have my prescription. If not, then I'll have some funny looking glasses. Quite cheap over here and they checked by prescription too as it was a few months old. Only £20 ($30) for the tinted prescription lenses added to the cost of the frames. Will be ready in 2 days. If they work well I might get another set!

  • The polyphasic sleep society says that both blue and green light blocks melatonin production. Accordingly, they recommend red tinted lenses. I bought these Dewalt red laser enhancement glasses and they seem to be working well: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00093DJ4M/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


  • Got my glasses with 60% orange tint. Think it's a little lighter than my other glasses so maybe 70-80% would be better. Only other issue is they're not wrap arounds, so if you look right up or down you get light in. Need to rethink the frame style next time to make them a little better. Just need to test their ability to block blue light now.

  •  katolotus: Look at your computer screen, if you don't have f.lux installed. The natural light from a computer screen has blue spectrum in it.

    I recently bought blue blockers on ebay for just $6.50ish, + $9.50ish to send it to norway. They are darker than depicted, and get progressively darker towards the top, but work fine.

    The blue on this page

    turns completely black, but I still see a tiny bit of blue if they are not as dark, such as the top bar on facebook I can clearly tell is blue. 


     


    Time will tell if they have any effect however.

  • Bought these:


    http://www.blublocker.com/products/eagle-blublocker


     


    They are also available on amazon.


     


    The blue block on this site looks black with the brightness on my mac on low, dark navy blue with it on medium, and reg blue with it on high. (I made sure to disable f.lux during the test.)


     


    They work really well:

    They're the best bang for your buck in regards to effectiveness, aestheticism, and price.

  • Hi,


    I bought some Blue Blockers from Ape Hacking http://upgradedape.co.uk/collections/improve-your-sleep.


    They are really good quality and contact with the company is fantastic. Looks like they could be expanding its range over the coming weeks/months (a lot of BP Products).
  • green blockers better than uvex? laser glasses. the studies are varied.


  • Here's an UK on-line store selling blue light blocking sunglasses for £12,99:

    ... as well as other cool BP products ;).

  • those look similar to some ones i bought on amazon. they aren't just blue blockers, they're also sunglasses, so they are quite a bit darker, which kinda makes it hard to see. i like the uvex ones better so far. 


  • Perhaps these are better then? These "filters out harsh artificial light (i.e., blue light) to reduce eye strain and improve contrast".

    I'm actually thinking of buying a pair of these for myself!


    /Chris


  • The Gunnars and brand name BluBlockers aren't too expensive.. probably worth checking out.


  • blue blocker, how about green blockers which also suppress melatonin  aka Laser glasses - red lens


  • has anyone tried this ones?

    I can't find any review on sleep or melatonin changes


  • My prescription lenses with 60% orange tint are working quite well, sleep is great at the moment. Thinking 60% is maybe too light, maybe 80% would be better comparing them to my previous blockers. Also, stupidly, the lenses I chose don't cover 100% off your vision, so if you look right up and right down, you don't get the tint. Something to think about when picking the frame!

  • ^ to block blue light. I solved this previously and didnt get any praise. Kind of dissapointed! :(

    buy any of these blue blockers from blueblocker.com and you will be set with a pair for life that work and you go out in public in without getting crazy stairs or questions from the grocery clerk.

  • Thank you for the link Austen Miller! I guess re-posting the link can only do good.


    I live in Europe and I found a pair of UVEX flash(UV400 blockers) at 15€. I was just wondering whether it blocked enough blue light or not.

    Does anyone have any experience with those?


  • I managed to find these in a UK hardware shop ;  http://www.safety-one.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=3U0500&cat=44  The lenses state that they're 'amber,' but are these roughly the same as the US ones?  


  • Been wearing my glasses now for 3 weeks with great success. My only question is about waking up.

    I definetly have a harder time getting out of bed nowadays. Its almost as if my body refuses to wake up..

    Any ideas??
  • Anybody know HOW much blue light the Gunnars block?


  • Any blue blocking contact lenses out there?


  • Got an email from Gunnar - they say their glasses block approx. 85% blue light..


  • So I bought a pair of Gunnars - I really like the style and the fact that the yellow tint glasses doesn't look too freaky and you can wear them in public.. 


     


    BUT how much difference is there from the 85% they block to a pair that blocks interely? Well 15% obviously but has anyone practical experience with this or some knowledge on what a difference like that will mean in regards to melatonin release?  


  • StevoStevo Upgrade in Progress

    Have you noticed anything from wearing them?


  • Can I ask a question? What's the difference between these blue light blocking glasses and the IRLEN ones that Dave wears all the time to also block blue light, if any at all? He briefly mentions the glasses in The Bulletproof Life series..

    As far as I can recall Dave's explanation, these Irlen glasses are custom-made, based on individual person testing/reading, whereas all the off-the-shelf ones offering fixed blue-light spectrum blockage, anywhere from 50% to 100%.

    I'm finding the 60% orange tint on my prescription glasses I bought in Thailand are working well. Not sure how much blue light the orange tint make, but you notice a big difference when I put the on each evening in front of the TV or Laptop. I try to put them on 2hrs before bed. Still sleeping like a baby.
