Baxter Blue glasses are non-prescription eyewear for children and adults designed to filter out blue violet light emitted by computers, tablets and smartphones.
The average person stares at a device for 10 hours a day. That’s a lot of time staring at the screen. And as you can see from the study here, there are a lot of bad effects with blue violet light exposure – to adults and kids.
This is the reason why the team at Baxter Blue came up with their blue violet light filtering glasses. Given that you can’t make people stop looking at screens, the glasses are the best option to reduce its negative effects on the body.
Here at Her Collective, we were given two glasses to try out – one for children and one for adults.
After a week of trying them, here’s our experience:
The glasses were worn while watching all screens – TV, e-reader, iPads and iPhones. I always notice that my daughter’s personality changes when she has screen time of more than an hour. We limited her screen time during the week and every time she was on the screen she used the Baxter Blue anti blue violet light glasses. Usually on weekends, we notice her personality changes to something close to evil after an hour of screen time. But this time, with the glasses on, no heads rotated 360 degrees. There were no tantrums or energy slump.
I, on the other hand, use the glasses during my downtime, usually at night – after dinner’s been put away and the child is in bed. I play games on my phone while lying down on the couch. Hubby borrows the glasses every now and then when he’s on his iPad, too. We both noticed that the eye strain has been considerably lessened during the week of using the Baxter Blue glasses.
Baxter Blue anti blue violet light glasses will suit people who stare at the screen a lot – basically all of us. My only concern is that I use prescription glasses so I can’t use theirs on top of my own glasses when I’m on the computer during the day – well I could, but I’d look pretty funny.
