NaturoBlocks Blue Blocking Glasses
To put it simply.. they actually work!
NaturoBlocks uses professional quality pigment-infused lenses that are lab-tested and verified to block out the proper spectrum and amount of blue light to protect you from the damaging effects of artificial light emitted from technology.
NaturoBlocks Energy Glasses are proven to block 88% of harmful blue light between 400-460nm (the most damaging spectrum of blue light), and block 60% of 455nm, the primary wavelength emitted from screens. Blocking this amount and spectrum of blue light has been shown in research to significantly decrease eye strain, headaches and sleep disturbances while improving mood and energy levels.
The majority of other blue blocking glasses are highly ineffective for two reasons:
- They block a very small percentage of blue light (3-9% on average).
- They don't even come close to blocking the damaging wavelengths of blue light that are actually emitted from screens and digital devices (455nm).
In other words they do not block enough blue and they block the wrong type of blue light. If the lens is totally clear, it is NOT blocking the right type of blue light. Don’t be fooled by “blue light blocking” marketing tactics!
Daytime Energy Glasses are best if you spend your day in front of a screen. They are also recommended if you are in an environment with traditional lighting (LEDs, fluorescent bulbs etc) for long periods of time. They can also be used to night for those who are not privy to the idea of seeing the world through rose coloured glasses..literally 😉
Nighttime Sleep Glasses should be used if you are exposed to any artificial light at night. This includes phones, computers, tablets, TVs, light fixtures (overhead lights or side lamps). Nighttime Sleep Glasses are recommended 1-3 hours before bedtime for optimal melatonin release.
It's a good idea to get one of each pair if this is accessible to you! If you can only choose one at this time, Daytime Energy Glasses are a safe bet as they can be also be worn at night.
Yes! There is plenty of research on the negative effects of artificial blue light on our body.
There is a growing amount of research on blue blocking glasses as well. The majority of studies show that using blue blocking glasses at night improves sleep quality and quantity, in addition to increasing melatonin (our most important sleep hormone and the body's primary antioxidant).
Some research also suggests that they are an effective strategy to reset your circadian rhythm (sleep-wake cycles) and may decrease symptoms of anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

Daytime Energy Glasses
Wear your Daytime Energy Glasses whenever you are inside under artificial light or looking at a screen. Never wear blue blocking glasses outside during the day as blue light from the sun is crucial for our health. Daytime Energy Glasses can still be used at night with great effectiveness at improving sleep quality, but the Nighttime Sleep Glasses are far superior in this area.
Nighttime Sleep Glasses
After the sun sets, put on your Nighttime Sleep Glasses if you are going to be exposed to any type of blue light before you go to sleep. These should also be used in the morning if you are exposed to blue light before the sun rises. These glasses can be used outside at night if you are exposed to blue light (such as street and car lights) but avoid wearing them while driving due to colour distortion.
