GUNNAR Optiks’s latest glasses promise to block 98% of artificial blue light, which is good news for people who, like me, spend most of their days in front of a screen.
GUNNAR says Amber Max lenses are the company’s “most powerful blue light blocking solution to date” and can help consumers regulate their body’s circadian rhythm and achieve better sleep.
There’s mounting evidence that blue light from smartphones and computer screens make it harder for you to fall asleep and, in some cases, cause headaches or worse.
While GUNNAR is often marketed towards gamers, most everyone can benefit from reducing the eyestrain caused by constant screen time. Of course, stepping away and avoiding screens is the best way to lessen the harmful effects of blue light—but it’s often not an option for some people, including workaholics and those with multiple desk jobs.
Smartphones and some computers have taken steps to make blue light filters more available to more users, but TVs remain a bit behind.
For those suffering from insomnia or migraines, due to constant screen on time, GUNNAR’s wares, including their $70 Amber Max-equipped Intercept glasses, may be a solution worth trying out.
