GUNNAR appeals most commonly to professionals and gamers who spend excessive time in front of screens. Those types of people typically experience the most blue light exposure indoors, often at night. What about people who gain their greatest amount of blue light exposure outdoors, during the day? Since we believe everyone needs protection we have got protection for all types of people. Today we are going to talk about the often neglected category of blue blocker sunglasses and cover a few of our top picks from GUNNAR’s selection of blue light blocking sunglasses.
The Sun’s Blue Light
First, a quick science lesson. Blue light is essential to our mental and physical health. The sun emits blue light, and that signals our brain to tell us when to go to bed and when to wake up. It’s specifically blue light, not just any part of the sun’s light, that does this. The effect on our circadian rhythm (the scientific name of our sleep cycle) is essential. However, studies show that excess direct exposure to sunlight can have negative effects. As we often talk about on this blog, blue light emitted from electronic devices often harms our eyes for the same reason. Imagine if you happen to take part in work that required you to not only be outside but also to frequently use digital screens simultaneously! The blue light exposure for your eyes would surely be too much to handle.
