With memories of a pre-Internet era now securely quarantined in the past, we find ourselves face to face with the ubiquity of the glowing screen, a mindless glare that beckons us, day and night, to feed it with our dwindling attention. But every piece of “connected” tech comes with a reckoning, not least of which is the prevalence of blue light in our daily lives, which has increased exponentially, not just with the widespread popularity of devices that include computers and smartphones, but because of energy-efficient LED light bulbs and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) as well.
Occurring naturally in sunlight, blue light is part of the visible light spectrum and, since its directly tied to our circadian rhythm, is an important part of the sleep-wake cycle that determines when our body feels tired and alert. Too much blue light creates a kind of visual noise that is thought to contribute to eye strain and fatigue, and the blue light emitted from the smartphones we doomscroll before going to bed can hold back the body’s production of sleep-inducing melatonin. So while its always important to protect your eyes from harmful UV, if you’re spending 4-6 hours in front of a screen or more (and nowadays, who isn’t), some sort of blue light reduction technique is also recommended.
To address this need, Jacques Marie Mage proudly presents “The Halcyon Series,” a limited edition selection of some of our most popular glasses newly equipped with lenses that block blue light while still reducing reflection and providing 100% UV protection. Now you can proudly protect the windows to your soul with exquisite, handcrafted glasses that can ease digital eye strain, reduce glare, and increase the clarity of your vision.
