Here at Island Eyewear, we wouldn’t be where we are today without these amazing devices.

But after feeling the effects of 12 hours in front of a screen every day, we knew something was up, so we embarked on a journey.

The average person spends over 3 hours of screen time on their phone alone.

If you work in front of a computer, this exposure could be as much as 10 hours a day.

Over-exposure to blue light from screens has been shown to affect mood, motivation, sleep and wellbeing.

Blue Light - Natural Vs Synthetic

We discovered that there is one fundamental importance in the blue light that we are exposed to – the source.

The truth is that we are exposed to blue light all the time, from the largest natural light source we have – the sun.

Blue light has the shortest wavelength in the complete spectrum of light, and because of this, it is the most visible colour in the sky.

However, blue light is now found in many artificial sources of light, such as the screens in our phones and computers.

blue light devices

These screens use either an LCD backlight or more recently and OLED display, both of which emit light that is not natural and very high energy.

The average person spends at least 3 hours staring at these screens, and the long term effects of mass artificial blue light exposure are only just being realised.

Reports from people using blue light glasses for just one day is staggering, with everything from less eye strain to a better nights sleep being reported.
