Blue Light Filter Lenses | Eliminate Headaches & Get Better Sleep

EyeBuyDirect Blue Light Cutting Lenses: RFLKT x Hustle and Halcyon

Wassup.

So we’re going to jump right into this one today because I’M SO PUMPED to finally write about my favorite blue light filtering lenses on H+H!

I have shared these glasses on snapchat a number of times, & everyone has been so intrigued by this whole idea. I was too, so let’s discuss.

You can read all about the ins & outs of blue light emissions here ( << SO many details & a cool study done at Harvard ), but I’ll go ahead & summarize a bit for y’all.

Basically, since the beginning of humans, human beings have lived by the light of the sun & have spent nighttime in ( mostly ) darkness. Now, through the creation of artificial light, we can spend our evenings in light as well.

This artificial light at nighttime throws off our circadian rhythm ( AKA: our internal clock ) by suppressing the secretion of melatonin ( a sleep hormone ), which causes sleep to suffer. It may also contribute to a number of other ailments like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, etc.

Blue wavelengths, specifically, are known to boost attention, reaction times, and mood, but become detrimental to sleep when viewed at night. AKA: sitting at your computer or on your phone late at night can make it harder for you to fall asleep. DUH, okay.

As a blogger who loves to work late into the night, a serious Netflix/HBOandGo lover, & a 3 AM Pinterest fanatic, I know this to be truuuuuuu.

White light suppresses secretion of melatonin, but blue light does even more so. With so many people on the go-green, environmental-love train, we are regularly using energy-efficient lighting ( LED lights ). LED lights are great for the environment, but they emit more blue light than do fluorescent bulbs.

Also, for me, staring at a computer screen for hours makes me head start to hurt & my vision blur. Blogging is HARD WORK, amiright?

Enter: My FAV new glasses, Blue Light Filtering Lenses.

TBH, I’ve always looked super odd in glasses ( prob because my eyes are the tiniest beebus eyes ever ), but I received some glasses from EyeBuyDirect’s RFLKT line in a blogger gift bag & I actually look kind of normal in them….. Shocked.

I think these are a must for anyone who works with any type of screen at night or for long hours during the day. I’ve noticed my headaches diminish & my ability to fall asleep at a normal time improve.

Actually, I’m wearing them right now. CUTE.

So, here’s how it works. You go to the EyeBuyDirect RFLKT Website ( this link will take you to the Women’s site ) and choose your favorite frames in your favorite color. There are a number of cute options…. seriously, so hard to choose.

In these pictures, I’m wearing the PRISM Frames in Warm Tortoise. I also like the NOSTALGIA frames in Caramel & the FADE frames in Rose.

Then, you’ll customize your lenses. To get the blue light filtering lenses I have, you will choose the ‘No-RX Lens’ option when it prompts you for your prescription.

For the Lens Type, choose ‘Digital Protection,’ & for the Lens Option, I chose ‘Eyezen™.’

Then, you’re done! These are a little pricier than your fav Forever21 fakey glasses, but they come with a benefit that a cheaper pair of fashion glasses won’t come with— um, keeping your health intact, duh.

Hope y’all are as obsessed with this whole idea as I am! AND, btw, EyeBuyDirect gifted me some of these babies, but this post ISN’T a paid opportunity for me. I just really, really love the idea behind this product, and I live to share these kinds of helpful tidbits with you beebs.

I’ve had a few readers snap me pictures of theirs then they arrived, so SNAP ME ( payton_sartain ) which pair you choose! Love it.

Also, if you’re liking this pink slip/choker look, you can find the full post on it here.

Talk Soon, friends! xx
