What is Blue Light?
Blue light is a part of the visible light spectrum (just like UV rays), but with a short, high energy wavelength. It is one among several colours, like Violet, Indigo, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red. Also, these merge to form white light which we see when the sun is shining.
Apart from the sun, LED lights and digital screens like TV, laptops, phones, tablets also emit blue light. Our glasses that block blue light have a lens structure that blocks most of the blue light from passing through and reaching your eyes.
Effect of blue light on eyes
Is blue light all bad? Not at all! Blue light has been linked with boosting alertness, helping our memory and improving attention spans. It also helps regulate our circadian rhythm or sleep-wake cycle.
It is overexposure to blue light - especially at night - that makes things trickier. While more research is needed on this, some experts believe that like UV rays, excess blue light can have a harmful effect on eyes. To limit this exposure, try to cut your screen time, use “night mode” on devices and use blue light blocking glasses.
Blue Light Blocking Glasses - X-Blue UV Lenses
If you spend most of your day in front of digital devices such as tablets, smartphones, computers, laptops etc. Blue light glasses are the answer to protecting your eyes. Constant exposure to digital blue light could lead to minor headaches and eye fatigue. We’ve engineered the most advanced blue light filtering glasses ‐ The X Blue UV. In today’s world where we’re surrounded by all types of digital devices, strong protection is much needed against them. Even small children are exposed to tablet screens which could be harmful to their delicate eyes. We suggest users use blue light blocking glasses not only as their most intimate accessory but also as a modern-day protection against digital screens.
Standard Lens Vs Blue Reflect Lens
Though standard anti-glare lenses provide 100% UVA and UVB protection, they are not able to reflect 100% of the blue light. Blue reflect technology is specially designed for the modern age millennials who spend 80% of their time in-front of the digital screens.
Instead of an anti-blue light coating on the surface like some other brands, our X-Blue lenses have a different lens structure, which means that the anti-blue light properties are in-built. This leads to a greater percentage of blue light being blocked, along with longer life.
Benefits of Glasses That Block Blue Light
Precaution is better than cure and digital blue light glasses are the best precaution against modern age devices. Good for Night Driving against high beams!

Questions On Your Mind ?
Blue light blocking glasses stop the blue light from reaching our eyes. Using them helps ensure no such false signal of it being daytime (when it’s sleep time) is sent to the body. Because of this the body induces melatonin at the right time, helping us sleep properly when we want. And with better quality sleep comes a reduction in stress as well. So, that’s killing two birds with one stone. Even in daylight when we use computer or smartphone, the constant blue light absorption hurts our eyes and deviates concentration often leading to regular eye-strain, dry eye and headaches but with an active protection like blue light glasses, it slows down to zero.
Here’s how Specscart’s X-blue lenses are great -
- Our X-Blue lenses have the blue light filter as part of the monomer (the actual components that make up the lens structure), rather than as a coating.
- They also don’t have the vivid blue reflection that spreads across some lenses.
- It offers best-in-class protection against blue light rays, with blocking percentage one of the highest in the industry. The exact protection depends on factors like the material, prescription and the thickness of the lenses.
- Lesser eye strain, particularly after working on computer screens for hours on end.
- Better sleep quality.
- Lesser fatigue.
