The only Blue Blocking Glasses you will ever need!
Optimize your sleep quality by using Biohacker’s evening glasses 1-2 hours before bedtime.
Did you know that computer screen, smartphone screen and for example the modern LED lights produce blue light comparable to daylight (aka short wave length light) that efficiently reduces melatonin production in the evening? No wonder if you are not tired when its time to go to bed. This blue light is great in the morning and during the day when you need to wake up and to regulate the circadian rhythm but bad for you in the evening if you want to get to sleep on time, maintain a regular circadian rhythm and in general fall asleep fast.
If flashing lights at a party or screens on devices are bothering your eyes, Biohacker’s night glasses are here for you. These blue blockers will efficiently prevent blue light and support melatonin production. When you use these in the evening while using a phone or a computer your eyes will rest and staring at the screen will not feel as strenuous. Biohacker's evening glasses support natural melatonin production at night.
