Awesome blue blocking abilities.
on December 9, 2015
I just received my glasses and put them through two stress test. First, I'd like to say they surpassed my expectations of blocking blue light. One test was with my reef aquarium growing Radion XR15w PRO full spectrum LED light fixture. It includes 4x CREE blue, 4x OSRAM deep blue, 4x CREE cool white and 9 other led lights with colors ranging from green to indigo UV. By testing the full wattage of blue, deep blue and indigo UV, these glasses filtered out almost all, if not all, blue light. Very impressive. From photos provided, one shot is from iPhone 6s' new 12mp camera (no filter) pointing straight-on aquarium. Very blue. The other aquarium shot is with the Swannies' lens upclose and covering camera while taking the picture. No blue. This light fixture setting is to provide maximum "morning" sun output for high coral growth. The second test involved shining a 200 lumen LED flashlight directly at the glasses lens to question it's blue light blocking abilities. It reflected all blue and blue related light to the wall (see photo). I tested my $200 UV protecting Ray Ban P's and you can see the results were not close.
Im a person on the computer for proposal creation, PC gaming (intense graphics-- CounterStrike and WoW), creating marketing material on Photoshop and ESPN reading coupled with a Sony XBR Ultra HD TV watching Inside Out, and the likes, with my wife and little boys. Don't forget about last minute catching up with Instagram, FB, last minute fantasy football lineups and the 10 o'clock news while in bed. My life is usually in the fast lane, like many others, and my sleep is very important, especially for someone who uses a Cpap machine for sleep apnea. Having the amber lenses on these glasses provides the protection I need without losing visual brightness. I did not like the normal yellow blue blocking glasses as they did not provide much blue blocking. After testing these glasses I feel reassured that my body will start producing melotonnin at regular levels and hopefully they'll take care of my headaches as well. From what I gathered so far I give these glasses a very big two thumbs up for blue blocking abilities, without hindering visual, and and a plus for style. Sleep is vital and worth the cost of these glasses. I have no affiliation with this company and I did pay full price. I'm just a concerning parent adjusting to the new ways of life while technology tries to fix this new growing problem.
