Blue Light Reader - Cateye
Bigger screens, brighter lights and a growing number of digital devices mean overexposure to blue light is higher than ever. Take a stand against eye strain, fatigue and disruption of natural sleep rhythms with a pair of blue light readers.
Our Cateye Readerfeatures a gorgeous and flattering cateye shape with a molded bridge and flexible spring hinges. Along with magnification, the lenses protect against blue light emitted from the digital devices you use everyday - like smartphones and laptops - to help eliminate eye strain and fatigue so you can focus better on work or play.
Blue light emitted from digital devices - computers, tablets, televisions, and smartphones - not only causes your eyes to work harder to focus, but it can
also suppress production of melatonin, which can disrupt your sleep cycles.
Blue light reading glasses filter screen light to reduce digital eye strain and prevent device-related fatigue and insomnia.
Digital Eye Strain
Using digital devices for long periods of time can strain your eyes because of shifting focus, extensive closeness, and less blinking. Wearing blue light
blocking readers when exposed to screen light can help alleviate the strain and reduce the symptoms of digital eye strain, including tired and sore eyes, dryness, headaches, and blurred vision.
The brain associates blue light with daytime, which is why evening and nighttime screen light can make it difficult to fall asleep. Diminishing light at night triggers melatonin, the body’s sleep hormone, which makes you sleepy. Exposure to screen light, especially at night, can inhibit the production of melatonin, which can disrupt normal sleep cycles.
What about dark mode?
Dark mode (or night mode) is a setting on many digital devices that adjusts the light levels and tones and/or dims screen brightness. Dark mode may save your battery, but it won’t help your eyes. While setting your screen to warmer colors may reduce some blue light exposure, it isn’t enough because devices still emit blue light through the LED backlight.
Is all blue light harmful?
Blue light is a necessary component of a healthy lifestyle. During the day, blue light from the sun is important for helping us wake up and have energy throughout the day. It regulates sleep cycles by telling our bodies when to be wakeful and when to sleep.
The true issue with blue light is overexposure. By exposing ourselves to artificial blue light both day and night, we are disrupting our body’s internal clock. Filtering out and eliminating blue light at night will help us maintain healthier habits.

Always store your eyewear in a case or microfiber pouch to prevent damage to the lenses and frames. Because heat can cause your eyewear to warp and become distorted, never leave your sunglasses directly in the sun, and avoid leaving them in the car on hot days, especially on the dashboard.
Use a soft microfiber cleaning cloth to wipe away dirt, fingerprints and smudges from lenses and frames. For stubborn, stuck-on grime, use warm water, with a gentle soap only if needed, and gently rub away the dirt with your fingertips. Pat dry immediately. Avoid paper towels, tissues, chemical cleaners, and detergents, as these may be abrasive and scratch away protective lens coatings or strip frame paints and sealants.
Chemicals in sunscreens and insect repellants can damage eyewear, especially paints and coatings, so use care when applying these products to avoid contact. Since this isn't always realistic, be sure to clean your eyewear with a quality lens cleaner to remove any chemicals after using such products.
Hinge screws can loosen with use, so periodically check for loose screws and tighten as necessary, but don't overtighten.
Take care when using adhesives to repair broken frames or lenses. Many adhesives will melt and distort plastics and can "fog" lenses. Before repairing eyewear on your own, consult a professional or find out if your product is covered under our Lifetime Warranty.
