If you’ve experienced eye fatigue, headaches, blurry vision, and/or dry eyes, there’s a good chance it’s a result of digital eye strain. It’s estimated that 73% of Americans under the age of 30 have experienced eye strain from overexposure to digital blue light. Between spending our working hours in front of computers and our free time on our phones or watching movies and TV shows, many of us are exposed to an overabundance of digital blue light. Indeed, on average, Americans spend 7.5 hours each day looking at a digital screen, and depending on your occupation, it may be even more than that.
Baxter Blue has made it their mission to alleviate digital eye strain. The brand’s collection of stylish Blue+ glasses brings relief to your eyes by alleviating digital eye strain and eliminating glare, enhancing your digital viewing as well as the health and well-being of your greatest assets: your eyes, your mind, and your body. In fact, they are some of our favorite computer reading glasses. Even better, right now you can get 15% off any pair with coupon code BaxterBlue15. Baxter Blue has free shipping and free returns, and you can try out your glasses for 90 days risk-free.
What makes Baxter Blue Eyewear stand out?
Baxter Blue’s Blue+ glasses come in three options — Blue Light, Sleep, and Sunglasses — with all three blocking out 80% of digital blue light and 100% of screen glare and UVA and UVB light. The Blue Light glasses are virtually clear and are designed to be worn all day. Not only do they come in more than 45 different frame and color options, but they are also available as reading glasses. Of course, as anyone with children knows, adults aren’t the only ones racking up a lot of screen time. Your youngsters are even more likely to suffer from digital eye strain, and so the Blue Light glasses are also available in kids’ styles.
The importance of sleep has become a hot topic as more and more people suffer from sleep deprivation, and the effect of digital blue light on sleep is well-documented. Artificial blue light disrupts your circadian rhythms and the natural release of melatonin (the hormone that tells your mind and body when it’s time to sleep and wake up). Because the digital blue light makes our brain believe it’s still daytime, falling asleep can become difficult, and we don’t sleep as deeply. With 80% of Americans using a digital device at least two hours before going to bed, it’s no surprise that so many suffer from sleeplessness. Baxter’s Sleep glasses are designed specifically to be worn after the sun goes down. They filter out the 450-500nm blue-light wavelengths that impact the release of melatonin and impact sleep.
And for when you’re out in the sun, Baxter Blue also makes a line of stylish sunnies. These polarized glasses not only block 100% of UVA and UVB light, they eliminate color distortion — whether you’re looking at you’re screen or not!
If the combination of blue light-blocking, style, and savings weren’t reasons enough to purchase a pair of Baxter Blue glasses, the company also cares about doing good. Not only do their glasses come in recyclable and compostable packaging, but they’ve partnered with Restoring Vision so that for every pair of glasses purchased, they donate a pair of reading glasses to a person in need. Baxter Blue has donated more than 100,000 pairs of glasses to date. To get 15% off your pair of Baxter Blue glasses, just click the button below.
