You take your mental and physical wellbeing seriously, constantly optimizing yourself for better mental clarity, energy, and productivity so you can focus on making a difference in the world.
Regulating how blue light affects you physically and mentally is a key part of this practice, and we take it just as seriously. That’s why we’ve created a suite of solutions for limiting blue light exposure both day and night, reducing eye strain from digital screen use, as well as other tools for managing your sleep environment so you can perform at your peak all day, every day.
Blue light has been shown to inhibit the body's ability to produce melatonin, the hormone that helps us fall asleep, stay asleep, and achieve quality sleep. When worn in the hours before bedtime, Night Swannies filter out this blue light so your body can produce sleep-promoting melatonin naturally, allowing your body to properly prepare for sleep, fall asleep faster, and sleep better all night long.
When worn during prolonged use of electronic devices, Day Swannies help prevent symptoms of digital eye strain such as sore eyes, headaches and fatigue.
If you’re driving during the day when it’s sunny outside, Swannies Sunglasses are probably your best option. Beyond our blue light blocking technology, the lenses in our sunglasses are polarized to protect from glare and UVA/UVB rays while preserving color and visual clarity.
While all Swannies are 100% UV-rated and offer protection from UV rays, Night Swannies are primarily designed to be worn during the evening and while using digital devices, and do not offer as dark a tint as sunglasses, which are designed to reduce sun glare. Our Henley Sunnies are the most suitable option for driving during sunny conditions, as they have polarized tinted lenses that block glare as well as the harmful spectrums of blue light.
Day Swannies are perfect for those who suffer from tired eyes, discomfort, headaches, dry, itchy or irritated eyes while working in the office. These symptoms are often a result of working for prolonged periods on computer screens, gaming, and in spaces with harsh artificial lighting.
If color fidelity is crucial for your office work, for example in design work or gaming, you may find Swannies Day Glasses beneficial as a blue light blocking solution.
Our Night Swannies Glasses are designed specifically to support sleep by blocking blue light wavelengths emitted from all light-emitting electronic devices and artificial lighting. This includes cell phones, computer screens, TVs, tablets, led lighting, and even your kitchen fridge light. By Night Swannies filtering out this blue light, your body can properly prepare for sleep, allowing you to fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply.
Night Swannies Blue Light Blocking Glasses are FDA registered and have been extensively researched, designed, and manufactured specifically to block the full spectrum of harmful blue light by combining a specific colored tint with special AR coatings which work together to effectively filter blue light.
Beyond being FDA registered, the independent sleep research lab SleepScore conducted a study on Night Swannies blue light blocking glasses and the results were worthy of earning their SleepScore Validated stamp of approval. The SleepScore Labs study found Night Swannies wearers experienced:
In addition, a study by University of Washington and Indiana University found that people who wore Night Swannies in the hours before bed not only slept better and longer, they also recorded a 9% improvement in task performance and an 8.5% improvement in work engagement the following day.
Our Day Swannies blue light blocking glasses are designed to increase productivity during your day by blocking harmful spectrums of blue light while letting beneficial blue light spectrums through. By letting the right blue light through, your body clock is regulated to stay alert throughout the day. When worn during prolonged use of electronic devices, Day Swannies help prevent symptoms of digital eye strain such as sore eyes, headaches, and fatigue.
The blue light filtering featured on our Night and Day Swannies isn’t all that’s top-notch. All Swannies are made with high-quality acetate, TR-90, or alloy frames featuring spring hinges and top of the line CR-39 lenses with UV rated anti-glare coating on both front and back. We are confident that you won't find better quality blue light blocking glasses on the market!
When shopping for blue light blocking glasses, it’s essential to find the details about not just how much blue light they block but also what range of the light spectrum they block as it pertains to the time of day you’re wearing them.
During daytime hours, some ranges of the light spectrum are beneficial to our health, so it’s important that some blue light is still allowed through the lenses in daytime hours. However, in the hours before bed, you need to block the full blue light spectrum, which is what our Night Swannies are made for.
For example, Day Swannies block between 45-98% of blue light between 400-450nm, which studies have shown is the most harmful part of the blue light spectrum.
They allow some blue light rays in the range of 450-500nm to get through, as exposure to this range during the day is important for giving your body the signals that it is daytime and that it should be awake.
You’ll find most clear-lens blue blockers on the market only block blue light up to 420nm. Day Swannies, however, block 98% of blue light at 400 nanometers, graduating to 45% at 450nm. This is considered the most harmful part of the blue light spectrum. Our daytime lenses are optimized to let just the right amount of beneficial blue light through while blocking the harmful spectrums of blue light.
Conversely, Night Swannies block over 99% of blue light, which is crucial for helping your body slip into a natural sleep rhythm by promoting melatonin production.
We recommend wearing Day Swannies if you suffer from symptoms of digital eye strain such as tired eyes, discomfort, headaches, dry, itchy or irritated eyes. This may occur if you are working for prolonged periods on computer screens, gaming, or even under harsh artificial lighting during daytime hours.
You may also find Swannies Day Glasses beneficial if you are looking for a blue light blocking solution that maintains color fidelity, for example design work or gaming.
With our increasingly digital lives, there’s almost non-stop exposure to harmful artificial blue light. Fortunately, Day Swannies blue light glasses can be worn all day, as they still allow plenty of the beneficial natural blue light rays to pass through while blocking the harmful spectrums of blue light.
Swannies are suitable for people of all ages and highly recommended for children when using digital devices to protect their eyes.
In our Night Swannies, the Kids Colors Collection is recommended for children under the age of 12. For older children, we have the Classic Kids and Classic Small or Regular sizes. In the Day Swannies, we have our Kids Crystal Swannies as well as Classic Small or Regular Day Swannies.
Our Custom Prescription Swannies product line is eligible for FSA and HSA spending, and we can accept most HSA and FSA payments directly. If you’re unsure of coverage, it’s best to check with your insurance provider to confirm before you make a claim. Note we cannot process insurance claims, they must be handled separately by you.
