Perfect, adjustable fit.
Michael
I use these for watching TV at night, and they really seem to help block the blue light, which in turn helps me to get to sleep easier when I turn in.
Jonathan
They have a nice fit around the edges that keeps out debris and dust, as well as blue light.

1.
I know these glasses work when I can't see the annoying blue LEDs on my laptop. (They look a dark green.) Also, my Philips GoLite has been reduced to a dull shine that I can stare directly into with impunity ... not that I'm crazy enough to use the GoLite at night.

As for regulating sleep rhythms:

2.
I ordered the glasses along with some slow-release melatonin. I never used the melatonin. After 4 hours of "glass time," I was ready to sleep, and I slept on time -- by 5AM. 3 weeks later, I was sleeping at 2AM. Now I can dream the wildest dreams -- bedtime by midnight. Meeting friends in the afternoon. A regular 9-5 job.

I've tried a lot of different things over the years. The GoLite helped with daytime sleepiness, but it didn't seem to help with the night-time awake-ness. I tried exercise, which only works when I'm not so dead tired that I can actually do it. Finally, I did over-the-counter sleep pills.

When I think about it, extreme night owls like me should have been selected out of the gene pool long, long ago. The problem must be elsewhere. Not with genetics or lack of sunshine, but with LCD screens, fluorescent lights, 24-hour television programming, etc.

A quick search on Google Scholar reveals that DSPS sufferers are /more sensitive/ to artificial evening light than normal people.

All it takes is having extra axons connecting the (newly-discovered) receptors in the eye to the suprachiasmic nucleus of the hypothalamus. That's the same place that signals the pineal gland to spit out melatonin, the sleep hormone. Coincidence?

Here's the wikipedia article:

This review is for the Uvex Skyper in SCT Orange lens tint, but it's also available in other lens colors. It has adjustable temple length and lens inclination. The lens is a large but snug-fitting wraparound shape, so you can't wear prescription glasses underneath. It fits me perfectly with no light trespass around the edges. But I don't like the padded earpiece design - I find them bulky and put a bit of pressure on my head...that's just me. I prefer Uvex's regular (non-padded) earpieces. Everyone has a different face & head shape, so your experience may differ with regard to fit and comfort.

The SCT Orange lens tint blocks virtually all ultraviolet, violet, and blue light while allowing most of the longer wavelengths (from green to red) to pass through. This gives it an orange/deep orange coloration. Unlike most sunglasses, this is one of the few true 'blue-blocking' lens tints. These are specialty safety/work glasses and are brighter than most sunglasses...they might not be dark enough for some people in outdoor useage, but they are good indoors. I use mine for working outdoors, and for wearing in the hour or two before going to bed to help me sleep.

Since they so effectively block the blue and violet part of the spectrum, color discernment is poor; these aren't meant for driving or anywhere you need color perception. If you need good color perception, Uvex has a brownish-colored lens tint called Espresso, which is excellent for general-purpose outdoor use - it is darker, and does a good (but not as complete) job at attenuating blue light. The Uvex US website has descriptions and spectral transmission charts for all their lens tints.

Addendum: I'm surprised so many people are buying these...please leave a comment about where you heard about these and what you use them for. Thanks.

Years of sleep meds, not being able to sleep through the night and waking up less than refreshed, these glasses have taken care of all of that. So simple, I put them on about 3-4 hours before bedtime and I go right to sleep and get my 7-8 hours of zzzzs. Love, love, love them.

Helps keep indoor lights from interfering with circadian rhythms by blocking out blue light...

My own experience (and absorption Spectrum available from mfg) shows these work just as well as far more expensive specialty glasses.

Those of you looking to help set your circadian rhythms by blocking blue light can rely on these glasses. Most "Blue-Blocking" glasses only mildly reduce blue light. These completely screen it out. I know this is so because I also own a Phillips GoLite blue light therapy device. The bright, glaring blue light from this is turned completely-greenish yellow even at point blank range!! Don't bother with other yellow shades that won't do the job. These glasses screen out all light up to 490 nm from what I can see.
All that could be better is a total geek-out with goggles of this same tint, to eliminate all peripheral light.

My husband makes fun of me for wearing these. But I know I'm cool and sexy. What's not to love about orange safety glasses? I wear them for about an hour or so before bed, and amazingly, they help me fall asleep quickly! (hopefully this is not simply due to their effect on my husband...). This is great, since I've struggled with insomnia most of my life, and my sleeping routine is totally screwed up these days. Anything that helps me sleep is tremendous, and these help a lot. The fit is also great, I'm petite and most glasses are too huge. These have enough adjustments built in that I get a good fit.
