Recently, there seems to be more attention to sleep and sleep problems, and there are companies that deal with clever solutions to improve the quality of our night’s sleep.Similarly, the young and innovative company BlauBlock (formerly BlueBlock) has come to market with a series of special glasses that help improve sleep quality.
I was very curious about these glasses and have been using them for a month. In this review, I share my experience and I answer some questions about this product.
What are these types of glasses and how does it work?
Light has a big influence on our sleep. This is especially true of blue light, reflecting daylight and sunlight, but also the bright light of monitors from, for example, your computer, mobile or tablet. This blue light has a lot of influence on the production of watch hormones. It gives our body the signal that it is ” day ” and that we should be awake. In the evening, as it grows dark, the production of these hormones decreases and our body will create sleep hormones. With the arrival of the laptop, smartphones and tablets, we are increasingly exposed to bright / blue light, which means that our body continues to create waist hormones longer and the production of sleep hormones remains. This results in an average of wake up on average before we fall asleep.
The BlauBlock company has devised a solution and designed a series of spectacles that filter this blue light. This causes the eyes to rest and our body does not get the wrong signals. No crazy idea at all! A logical and simple solution that perfectly fits the lifestyle and wishes of our time, in which you do not have to ask a majority of people to use no screens in the evening and dampen the lights. (which would of course be even better!)
A logical and simple solution
First impression of the product
Packaging: A month ago, I received the glasses at home. Packed neatly and the glasses came with a sturdy and beautiful eyeglass case to keep them in.
Design: I have the BlauBlock Filter and BlauBlock Sunset glasses at home but have mainly carried the Blaublock filter, it looks modern and tight, it had the right size for me and was comfortable. The SunSet I find myself a big and lazy side … But hey, what cares if you wear these glasses at home.
Comfort: Both variants are comfortable and firm and do not fall off. I have to say that it looks nice through the glasses because it rests on the eyes. Just as a sunglass rests the eyes against the bright sun, these filters give glasses to the eyes against the bright light from the displays.The sight itself is very yellow due to the yellow glasses, this is a bit of a bit used to it.
Extras: Comes with neat glasses and eyeglasses. Very nice, I also think that a letter with a brief explanation of the operation of the glasses is included, including tips to get the most out of your glasses and sleep.
Price: The glasses are well paid. The SunSet glasses costs only € 26.95 and the filter costs € 59.95. There is also a Power glasses available for € 19.95 (not tested by me) and clip-on for your own glasses for € 14.95)
A direct noticeable effect is that the glasses are at least relaxing and restful for the eyes. The actual effect on sleep quality is difficult to determine and I should wear the glasses consistently and for a longer period of time to be able to make a correct statement here. My idea is that it has a subtle positive effect on falling asleep (faster).
Light has a stimulating effect and thus a negative effect on sleep. The fact that these glasses mute / filter this light (and you notice that!) Believe that it should have a positive effect on sleep. Apart from that, it is nice to give the eyes of the evening a rest of bright light, for example by damping the lights or wearing a filter goggle.
Light feels absolutely less bright and the glasses give eyesight. I have the idea that the glasses have a positive effect on the night’s rest, even if I should test for longer. It is in line with the proven theory of the influence of bright light on our night’s rest. I’m going to use the glasses more often and try to do this consistently in the evenings and especially when I’m still in the back of my laptop in the evening.
