Between working on computers, texting on our mobile devices, and watching movies and TV shows for entertainment, it should come as no surprise that most of us spend a good portion of our days staring at one screen or another. It’s estimated that most Americans spend 7.5 hours each day looking at a digital screen. As such, it’s also not surprising that many people have experienced eye strain as a result of such prolonged exposure to digital light; more than 60% of Americans have experienced digital eye strain symptoms like dry eyes, headaches, blurry vision, and eye fatigue.
The cause of these ailments is the blue light and screen glare emitted by our digital devices. Artificial blue light can also affect our sleep by disrupting our 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). Baxter Blue has made it their mission to reduce eye strain and blue light exposure with its line of fashionable eyewear. The brand also believes in social responsibility and so for every pair of glasses that they sell, they donate a pair of reading glasses to someone in need. And right now you can use the promo code BaxterBlue15 to receive 15% off your order.
Baxter Blue’s glasses are available in three options: Blue Light, Sleep, and Sunglasses. Their Blue Light glasses, which have clear lenses that filter out nearly 80% of high energy blue light, can be worn all day and are also available as reading glasses. They also eliminate 100% of glare and UVA and UVB light. Of course, adults aren’t the only ones using digital devices. Our kids spend an equal amount of time on their laptops and mobile devices. Fortunately, Baxter Blue also makes its Blue Light glasses in kids’ sizes.
Meanwhile, Baxter’s Sleep glasses are designed specifically to be worn after the sun goes down. It’s estimated that 80% of Americans use a digital device within two hours of going to bed, and these glasses filter out the 450–500nm blue light wavelengths that impact the release of melatonin and impact your sleep. And like the Blue Light glasses, they eliminate glare and block UVA and UVB light. As you might guess, the Sunglasses also filter out blue light, glare, and UVA/UVB light, but have polarized lenses for when you’re out in the sun.
All three types of Baxter Blue glasses are available in an array of stylish frames and come with a free case and cleaning cloth. While Baxter offers free returns on all orders, you can try on their glasses virtually on their website. While a pair of Baxter Blue glasses normally costs $89 (with discounts available when you buy multiple pairs), the company is giving away two complete sets of all three types of blue light–blocking glasses to two lucky winners.

Of course, only two people will win, but fortunately everyone else is a runner-up: just use code BaxterBlue15 to receive 15% off your order. Whether you are already experiencing digital eye strain or want to prevent it before any symptoms occur, Baxter Blue offers a stylish way to block blue light.Baxter Blue Glasses Collection
