Blue light blocking glasses are super controversial.
Okay, maybe not as decisive as politics or the pros/cons of wearing a face mask. But, it’s definitely up there.
For every three doctors who say they’ll keep our eyeballs healthy, there are three more who poo-poo the idea and claim its all nonsense.
I have no idea who is right.
What I do know is that the screen time app on my phone says mine is up 2 ½ hours a day. That’s irritating for a lot of reasons, mostly because I thought I’d turned that stupid app off.
The second reason I’m so grumpy is because I’ve been sleeping like crap lately. Which blue light blocking advocates say is one of the symptoms of excessive exposure. Along with blurry vision, headaches/migraines, dry eyes, an inability to focus, and a bunch of other stuff we don’t want.
So, if a $50 investment will keep us healthy, happy, and sleeping through the night, seems like a pretty harmless gamble.
The search began on Amazon. However, one page in and their offerings were… kind of ho-hum. (Here’s the link if you want to check them out.)
That prompted a bit of research and… hallelujah! Three brands offering super fashionable, colorful, and cute blue light blocking glasses.
Enough chitter-chatter, here they are…
The Book Club:
Ironic right? I mean if we were reading old-school books, we wouldn’t be having this problem in the first place.
But I digress.
What’s Great About This Brand?
Besides the obvious – super awesome frames. They’re each have clever book-themed names that’ll make you smile. And did you see those prices!
You can see all their styles here.
You’ve likely heard about Quay because of their amazing collaborations with mega-celebrities – most recently with Jennifer Lopez & Alex Rodriguez.
Which would lead us to think, they’d have a healthy price sticker. But au contraire! Their prices start at $55. Bonkers, right!
What’s Great About This Brand?
They have a virtual try on, so you can buy frames online and know exactly what you’ll look like. Completely alleviating the whole buy-exchange-buy-return back and forth. Which is soooo annoying.
You can check out the Virtual Try-On for yourself here. Or you can read the Sunglass Post from earlier in the season where we chat a bunch about face shape and which frame style will look best on you.
They have a huge variety of frames – from super trendy to more conservative ideal for every day.
By the way, I was stalking their site yesterday and they have a BOGO special going on now. You can check it out here.
I originally fell in love with this brand when I bought these pink rhinestone-encrusted sunglasses ala Elvis.
Don’t let that scare you though. They also offer a bazillion more versatile frames that are perfect for work life.
What’s To Love About This Brand?
They are super committed to charity. They donate a portion of every purchase to supplying reading glasses, exams, and treatment to people in need around the world.
They also have a BOGO sale going on now. Here’s the link if you want to see the other frames available.
That’s A Wrap, Sunshine!
