Sleep is free, right?
Studies show that evening blue/green light, emitted from phones, laptops, TV screens, and overhead lighting can delay the release of the sleep hormone (melatonin) by up to 90 minutes—not a consequence you want just because you checked some emails before bed.
Subsequently the stress hormone (cortisol) rises, and you might start to feel anxious, wired and tense. There is even a correlation between increased cortisol and impaired brain function.
It is possible to prevent this from happening without avoiding all your devices though! Blue blockers are glasses with specific lens tints to block out the sleep-depriving wavelengths of light.
By blocking the blue light entering your eyes, you are able to promote melatonin (sleep hormone) production after sunset.
Lucid™ Amber lens
Our Lucid™ amber lens was created to block 97% of blue light (400-500nm) and 70% of green light (500-550nm), WITHOUT hampering your vision. The perfect tool for improving your sleep quality, glasses with the amber lens can be worn any time before sunrise and after sunset.
The Vesper, or evening in Classical Latin, is a frame for the discerning individual. Glossy black with narrow arms, the Vesper frame is timeless and sleek.
Our frames are created from acetate, a hypoallergenic plant-based compound made from renewable materials. The face is mouldable for that perfect fit, and is easy to clean. Lightweight and strong, these glasses are the healthiest accessory you’ll be wearing today.
Each pair of Mychondria blue blocker glasses comes with a duster cloth and fabric pouch.
Dos and Don’ts:
- DO wear them if you’re using artificial light at night
- DO wear them to protect your eyes from screens

NOTE: These glasses take 15-20 days to arrive after being dispatched, even when purchased in combination with a MyLight©, as they are shipped separately to our lights.
