We recommend protecting your eyes during the day and at night. Our daytime blue-blocking glasses deliver optimal results when combined with our night-wear glasses. Glasses that block artificial sources of blue light are optimal for daytime use, while glasses that block blue and green light are recommended for use at night.
Many people report a “being on Mars” feeling when wearing our night collection. They do change the colors you see when watching TV, and they take some getting used to. Work up to wearing the glasses for longer and longer periods of time. Up to 2-3 hours before bedtime is our reccomendation.
The blue and green light blocking effect is derived from the color of the lens and yes, the color goes all the way through, it is not a coating.
Blue and green light disrupts your circadian rhythm and inhibits melatonin production. By blocking artificial sources of blue and green light, our sleep glasses send signals to your body that it is indeed dark out and it’s time to produce melatonin and get to sleep.
Yes, we do! Our night collection fit-over glasses are designed to fit over most small to medium sized prescription glasses. They will block out sleep-disrupting light from the top, bottom and sides – not just the front. Shaped to block both direct and peripheral blue light. PLEASE NOTE: These are only available in one size and due to differences in face and head shapes and sizes, you will have to try them on to gauge if the fit is right for you. We offer a no hassle return policy to allow you to try them on and return them if the fit is not right.
Yes, Sleep Savior ® Ultra features a removable, protective seal (gasket) around the frame to ensure a comfortable fit so that no sleep-disrupting light reaches your eyes. The gasket easily snaps in and out of place for custom comfort and protection.

During the day blue and green light are the two strongest light frequencies that signal to the brain to inhibit melatonin so that you feel awake and energized. Day blockers shut out some blue light to relax your eyes and defend against eye strain and headaches. Both blue and green light are beneficial during the day but blue light in particular can be irritating to the eyes when it comes from artificial sources (computers, cell phones, home & office lighting, etc.). At night you want to shut out blue and green light frequencies to signal to the brain to produce / secrete melatonin.
Store your eyewear in the provided pouch, clean them with the provided chamois and your preferred lens cleaner. Consider purchasing our adjustable cord to keep your eyewear handy and scratch-free for years to come.
Our day collection eyewear feature a warm yellow lens that offers uplifting benefits reminiscent of a sunny summer day. On screen colors will be slightly altered and brightened.
Yes. Our glasses are designed for comfort and are lightweight and durable.
Day models block 35-50% of blue light.
Our glasses are made to fit most heads and faces. Unfortunately, without trying them on you won’t know how well they fit or if a different model might fit you better. Please make use of our 30 day return policy if you would like to try them on. Please note: You will have to pay to ship them back to us at your expense.
Natural blue light from the sun is essential in regulating your sleep and wake cycles as well as your body clock. Artificial blue and green light affects our sleep-wake cycles and can therefore be harmful.
Sunlight during the day and darkness at night signals to your body that it’s time to either inhibit or produce melatonin production. Your circadian rhythm gets disrupted when your brain’s 24-hour clock is “off” or confused. If you go all day without seeing the light of day (shift working) and then spend the evening hours surrounded by artificial lighting, many of your body’s necessary hormonal processes can become disrupted, the most important of which is sleep.
Studies suggest that continued exposure to blue light over time could lead to damaged retinal cells. This can cause vision problems such as age-related macular degeneration.
Some preliminary studies suggest a link between exposure to light at night and some types of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Other research has also linked shortened sleep to increased risk for depression and cardiovascular problems. Eye fatigue is another side effect of “junk light”, as blue light has been (accurately) dubbed.
Blue light is a color in the visible light spectrum that can be seen by human eyes. Because blue light is a short wavelength, it produces higher amounts of energy. Today blue light can be found everywhere. Once, the only source of blue light was from the sun. Now, by way of digital screens (found on TVs, smartphones, computers, laptops, tablets and gaming systems), electronic devices, LED and fluorescent lighting we are virtually surrounded by it throughout the day and night.
Natural blue light comes from the sun and is necessary for natural circadian rhythms and good health. Any blue light not emitted by the sun is artificial and potentially irritating and or harmful to health and wellbeing, especially when emitted at the wrong time of day and not in alignment with circadian rhythm.
No. You will actually sleep better and be healthier by exposing yourself to more natural light. Make sure to take advantage of the sun as a natural and healthy source of vitamin D by exposing your bare skin to at least half an hour of sunlight every day.
We suggest that you wake up a couple of hours before you start your shift and go outside to experience the morning sun for about half an hour (even if it's not sunny). This will suppress melatonin and make you feel alert and ready to start your “day”. 1-3 hours before you plan to go to sleep, dim bright lights, reduce screen time and wear your Sleep Savior ® eyewear. This will allow for melatonin to be produced and you will begin to feel sleepy. For some this happens right away, for others it could take a few days or weeks to readjust. Be patient with the process.
Blue light filters (like f.lux and Iris) are great and recommended, but they’re not sufficient protection from all the harmful blue and green light in your living and work spaces. We are constantly bombarded with blue light from every direction, and glasses are the safest bet for adequate protection.
The Sleep Savior ® Ultra model blocks out the most stray light since it creates a more enclosed fit and is padded for comfort. The Fit Over model will vary in it's protection depending on how well it fits your particular face. The Sleep Savior ® Model is the most sporty and lightweight and is best used in airports or in public places as they look less bulky than our other night collection glasses.
No, our daytime collection does not block green light as this is only recommended for nighttime protection.
We offer a 30-day return policy that you can find here.

There is no difference in the lens, only in the style of the glasses. It's just a matter of what your style preference is. We will be offering another 2 styles very similar to these in the next month or two that have a much less yellow lens with a 40% coverage. So if your preference is for a lighter lens color, you may want to wait for those and get on our mailing list to be notified. Please note, ironically the lens color does not affect the percentage of blue light that is blocked. The lens color is more of a preference as darker lens color can reduce glare.
