We spend most of our day looking at screens. Whether you’re scrolling through Instagram on your phone or finishing up a presentation for work on your laptop, studies show that the blue light emitted from digital screens hinders our health and can result in everything from restless sleep to deteriorated eye health. Thankfully, brands like EyeBuyDirect are working hard to help protect our eyes from these damaging UV rays, starting with launching a line of blue-light-blocking lenses. The brand teamed up with the wellness experts at Chillhouse NYC to help everyone “Stay Chill in the Digital World” with new, trend-inspired lenses that prevent the harmful effects of digital blue light.

🤚🏻🤚🏼🤚🏽🤚🏾🤚🏿 Raise your hand if you're guilty of pressing snooze one too many times in the morning. ⏰ The blue light from your @netflix binge could be the culprit. Blue light from digital screens at night tricks your body into thinking it's daytime. This inhibits your body's production of melatonin and effects how much you sleep AND how well you sleep. Woops. Shop our #ChillOutBlueLight collection curated by @chillhouse for the best of both worlds (binging AND a better sleep)
“Digital screens are major sources of blue light, specifically the kind of blue light our bodies use to regulate sleep. So, whenever we use our digital devices, especially late into the night, we’re actually telling our brains to keep our bodies awake,” said Caroline Dubreuil, Product Marketing Manager for EyeBuyDirect, who lists headaches, disorientation, loss of sleep, fatigue, and eye health issues as other symptoms of unprotected blue light exposure. “Research shows that wearing light-blocking glasses three to four hours before bedtime can lead to better and more restful sleep, which in turn keeps us healthy and productive.”
Starting at $25, the collection uses EBDBLUE technology to block blue light and comes in 15 frames for men and women, each curated by Chillhouse’s team to ensure that they were stylish and fashion-forward. “We selected frames that made us feel calm, cool and collected. Plus, they’re super affordable, so everyone can enjoy the benefits of blue-light protection,” Cyndi Ramirez-Fulton, Founder of Chillhouse, explained. The EBDBLUE frames also include scratch-resistant and anti-glare coatings and are available for prescription and non-prescription lenses.
