Top Customer Reviews
- Blue light is great for being awake - that's why you wake up with a blue sky (read about melanopsin and melatonin on Wikipedia)
- Blue light is not good for sleep; in the 470 nanometers range, that suppresses melatonin (a key hormone for sleeping well)
- Humans (and other animals) evolved to sleep in the dark - or, at the darkest, full Moonlight (just 0.1-0.3 lux of light)
- Longer wavelengths of light were the only source of light at night for most of human history (fire / candles)
- Tablets / phones / screens / LED's and many CFL bulbs have strong blue wavelengths that are messing with our circadian rhythms and suppressing melatonin, because they have wavelengths shorter than 530nm - 540nm
So what to do in our modern world? Wear these glasses before bed. Natural melatonin production would have occurred with our ancestors starting with the onset of sunset. Wavelengths of light from the setting sun would have shifted to red, and fire or candles were usually the only form of light available. Those are both relatively dim, and in longer wavelengths.
Today, our "connected" world has a LOT of blue light. It's messing with our sleep patterns, because our bodies evolved to only see red/orange/yellow light at night, NOT blue light/shorter wavelenghts.
THESE GLASSES BLOCK THOSE MELATONIN SUPPRESSING WAVELENGTHS.
Put them on a couple hours before bed. For me, I start getting drowsy about 90 minutes after wearing them. The trick is DO NOT take them off without closing your eyes or being in a dark room (a room with ONLY a dim red light would work too, as your melanopsin won't trigger melatonin suppression with red light). So when changing for bed, close your eyes when removing your shirt if you have to pull it off over your head or put your night time clothing on.
Then leave these on until you turn out the light for sleep. And be sure to sleep in the dark too, or wear a sleep mask. Small amounts of light can still affect your melatonin (well, anything brighter then full Moonlight - yes, even a blue LED on your computer). You can watch TV with these on, check your phone, read your tablet, work on your laptop - just note that colors will look weird. Blue looks black. Yellow looks white. Greens look weird. And the glasses aren't exactly stylish.
But if you sleep better, who cares? They work.
And while you're at it, make sure your home's lights (and business if you own one) aren't shining into other people's homes or apartments. Too much light at night is what makes these things necessary in the first place. We don't need all this light at night; these glasses are just a band aid to help; what we really need is smarter outdoor lighting - aimed down, at the ground, at the proper color(s) so we aren't suppressing others melatonin. According to a Harvard study, the U.S. loses $63 BILLION dollars per year due to American's insomnia. Artificial light at night messing up people's sleep is undoubtedly part of that - let's fix that so these glasses aren't as necessary.
Oh, and did these glasses work for me? An emphatic YES, they did. 5 nights (so far) of excellent sleep and well-rested mornings. And I am NOT a morning person! They work - just use them the right way, and be sure you're not doing other things that might hurt sleep (too much caffeine, lack of / too much exercise right before bed, sleep apnea, etc.) So if it's not a medical condition, do the right things, wear these, and get better sleep.
The build quality is honest to the $9 price. I have a narrow face and these glasses fit me perfectly. They block out all the blue light ruining your natural "come down." You will experience a more natural circadian rhythm while still indulging in the modern electronics. Installing " Flux. " and wearing these glasses are recommended for all computers and phones. They even work well as safety glasses while doing yard work due to the wrap around fit.
Highly recommended for students, workaholics, computer junkies, late night TV addicts, and lab assistants.
Try them yourself!
The SCT Orange lens tint blocks essentially all ultraviolet, violet, and blue light while allowing most of the longer wavelengths (from green to red) to pass through (see the spectral chart). This gives it a deep orange color. Unlike many other orange lenses, this is a true 'blue-blocking' lens tint.
These were originally designed and marketed as specialty safety/work glasses and might be a bit too bright for some people to use outdoors as sunglasses - but I actually like them for working outdoors. But their main value is in wearing indoors in the hour or two before going to bed - to block out blue light from all light sources...especially TVs, and computer/tablet/smartphone displays. UVEX recently began to advertise these glasses for this purpose.
Since they so effectively block the blue and violet part of the spectrum, color discernment is poor; blue colors will look much more like black or grey, and whites, yellows, and oranges will look similar to one another. This SCT Orange lens tint isn't meant for properly seeing colors - and especially not for driving, where color perception is important.
If you need decent color perception while still blocking most (but not all) of the blue end of the spectrum, UVEX has a brownish/coffee-colored lens tint called Espresso, which is better as a general purpose sunglass tint. The UVEX US website has descriptions and spectral transmission charts for all their lens tints.
The Skyper frame has adjustable temple length and lens inclination. The lens is a large but snug-fitting wraparound shape...seems designed to fit adult men best. It fits me perfectly with no light trespass around the edges. Because it fits very close to the face you probably won't be able to wear prescription glasses underneath. I don't like the padded earpiece design - they put pressure on my head...but that's just me. Everyone has a different face & head shape, so your experience may differ with regard to fit and comfort.
Some alternative choices: UVEX's Ultra-spec 2000 is available with the same SCT Orange lens color - most reviews say they fit decently well over prescription glasses. Blublockers brand glasses with the original 'amber' (orange-brown) lens color are fully blue-blocking lenses - but darker than UVEX's SCT Orange. Cocoons brand fitovers with 'Orange' colored lens tint fit wonderfully well over prescription glasses but are not fully 'blue-blocking' lenses. Smith & Wesson Magnum 3G Orange-lens glasses are brighter than the others but I'd still consider them 'true' blue-blocking lenses - however the rubber nosepiece on the second pair of Magnum glasses I ordered had an awful chemical smell.
