I recently partnered with Vanlinker Eyewear to collaborate on a post about their blue-light-blocking glasses. They are used to reduce the bright blue-light that is emitted from electronics – computers, cell phones, TV, video games – in an effort to reduce eye strain and disrupted sleep patterns. I quickly said yes to working together because even if the blue-light blocking aspect didn’t work – perhaps it was all hype? I thought – at least the frames were fashionable and super cute!
Once I got them, I wore them all day for the next few days. They not only helped hide the no makeup face on some days, but since I was on my phone throughout the day, also helped keep the glare down. (I even noticed that they desaturated the blue sky. When I looked through the glasses, the sky was dimmer and had a slight beige tint.) But the best way I knew that the glasses were helping my eyes, was at night when I’d blog, scroll, or watch Netflix on my phone. Usually, I would get a headache and have a hard time falling asleep because I was looking at the screen in a dark room for a few hours; but when I wore the glasses I found that I could fall asleep way faster. So now, they’re on my bedside table because I spend the most time on electronics at nighttime. Also, the blue-light blocking glasses are proven to work best at night to reduce a disruption in your sleep pattern. See this article by an opthamologist!

So, all in all, if you’re on the computer or playing video games or using social media for an extended period of time, you need to invest in some blue-light blocking glasses! It can help save you from headaches (along with focusing on something far away every few hours), and being able to fall asleep within a normal timeframe! Plus, I love that these ones are fashionable!
Other things to mention:
1.) The packaging was professional and sturdy, unlike some other brands who send their things in cheap plastic. The box had a slide out complete with glasses bags and lens cleaners. I’m a sucker for good packaging!
