How Do I Know If I Need Blue Light Glasses?

You may have noticed the Focus™ blue light label on the lens of your latest pair of Peepers. We started offering this feature, which minimizes the harmful blue light that reaches your eyes, back in 2017, and as of fall 2019, all our new styles will include blue light protection. We’ve even started adding blue light lenses to some of our most popular styles from seasons past.

Why is this so important? You may not know that electronic devices – including TVs, computer monitors, tablets, smartphones, and so on – emit harmful high-energy visible (HEV) blue light. The more time we spend looking at these screens, the more damage we can do to our eyes.

If you’re not sure whether blue light is affecting your day-to-day life, ask yourself these questions:

Do I tend to have a hard time falling asleep at night?

Do my eyes feel tired after I’ve spent time staring at my computer or cell phone?

Does my vision seem noticeably fuzzy until my eyes adjust when I look away from my screen?

Do I often feel tired, even after getting a full night’s sleep?

Have my headaches become more frequent than they used to be?


Chances are, you’ve been writing these symptoms off to other causes, but the truth is, if you’re exposed to blue light throughout the day, eye strain, fatigue, sleep disruption, and headaches are just some of the side-effects you may be experiencing. If you answered yes to any of the questions above, Focus™ blue light lenses from Peepers could help.

Peepers Has Your Eyes Covered

Peepers has always been committed to bringing you the hottest styles in eyewear, but we also recognize that your eye health is important, and we want to help any way we can. If we can make it easy to minimize the amount of blue light that reaches your eyes and help you look fashionable at the same time, what’s there to even think about? It’s a win-win!

Our Focus™ blue light lenses are designed to reduce the HEV blue light you’re exposed to by 40% or more, helping to combat effects like headaches and reduction of melatonin, along with the many symptoms that follow. This could lead to better sleep, sharper vision, and fewer headache days.

These lenses also feature a seven-layer anti-reflective coating as well as UV400 protection from the sun to protect from the most harmful wavelengths of light. If you’re looking for glasses that do more to keep your eyes healthy and alleviate the side effects of blue light exposure, Peepers has you covered with eyewear that allows you to protect your eyes and look good doing it.
