Are blue light blocking glasses worth it?

            Are blue light blocking glasses worth it?

First, we must disclose our conflict of interest because we are a company that sells blue light blocking glasses; that said, we definitely believe that most blue light blocking glasses are well-worth the price. 

Thomas Edison invented the light bulb in 1879 and the night was never dark again. Since that initial design, more and more light is constantly added to our nights. Light at night has been a great invention but unfortunately, light is very disruptive to the natural production of melatonin and melatonin is very important for sleep. Excessive exposure to light in the evening can disrupt sleep quality and while it is hard to set a monetary value to good sleep, a good night's rest can be priceless. 

Going back to the value of blue-light blocking glasses, good-quality ones tend to range in price between $40 and $100ish and they tend to last for a long period of time. If we divide the price of a pair of blue-light blocking glasses by 365 days (let’s assume you only use them for 1 year), we can easily see that the price comes down to a few cents per night of usage. Let’s look at the other side of the coin: we drink coffee to stay alert when we don’t sleep well and we all know that a good Cappuccino or Latte will cost between $3 and $5 per cup so, the price of the glasses is definitely lower than the price of not sleeping well.  

Our team has devoted many years to study human sleep and we think that our glasses are probably the best ones in the market. When you buy a pair of blue light blocking glasses you are investing in your sleep quality and your general wellbeing. Blue light blocking glasses have been studied extensively and they are effective.
