Swannies Blue Light Blocking Glasses : Protect your eyes and sleep better




Do you look at your phones before you sleep?



In a recent survey, Singaporeans are rank 2nd overall in terms of lack of sleep. A lot of such cases could be attributed to the use of phones or computers before sleep. As blue light is emitted from these devices, the exposure to it would be detrimental to sleep.




Studies had shown that Blue Light exposure suppresses delta brainwaves which induce sleep and even boost alpha wavelengths that create alertness. Furthermore, continuous exposure to blue light over time can cause retinal damage and macular degeneration. The bad news is that children are already exposed to Blue Light via early usage of these devices. This may lead to eyesight deterioration at a much faster rate in the future.


To protect one's eye, it is recommended to get a pair of Blue Light Blocking Glasses.  For those working in the office and spend several hours a day looking at the computer screen, it is essential to get one to protect the eyes.

Swannie Blue Light Blocking Glasses from Swanwick fit the bill in protecting the eyes. These lightweight and stylish glasses are tested to block over 99% of blue light up to 490nm and over 98% up to 500nm. With options for both kids and adults, it will be easy to find one that fits you.

Why a Swannie?

The Swannie night glasses are orange-tinted and are meant for night use. It would take a little use to wear it as it is orange-tinted. When tested while reading from the phone, it does relax your eyes and provided a good night rest. Compared to cheaper glasses. Swannies Blue Light Blocking Glasses are designed and manufactured to block the full spectrum blue light by combing a specific coloured tint with special AR coating to effectively block blue light. The cheaper versions are mostly just orange-tinted and not effective in blocking blue light.

How to use the Swannie?

Put on the Swannie at least 1 hour before bedtime continuously and not take them off until all lights have been turned off for it to be effective. After a week use with Swannie,  I found it effective to wear the Swannie when I am working on the computers at night. The benefit was a reduction in eye strains and a better-rested sleep for me.
