Frequently asked questions
Baxter Blue glasses are designed to filter out harmful blue light that is emitted from digital screens, specifically the highest energy shortest wavelengths in the 400nm-440nm range where they filter out 50% of this blue violet light. This helps reduce eye strain & fatigue, allowing your eyes to focus easier and improve contrast.
All our Adult's range of frames are available in reading magnifications of +0.5, +1.0, +1.5 & +2.0. We don’t however have prescription lenses and recommend that you visit your local optometrist. Our frames are also available to be purchased & have your local optometrist fit prescription lenses.
Firstly, our lenses. We could have just worked with an off the shelf blue-light-blocking lens, but we wanted to be certain the lens would filter out harmful blue violet light in the 400nm-440nm range whilst letting the good blue light in. So we embarked on many months of research and development to create our own blue light lens, partnering with experts in the field to develop our Blue+ lenses. Our Blue+ lenses are clear and filter 50% of the harmful blue violet light (400nm-440nm), have 100% UV protection and come with a anti-glare & anti-scratch coating.
Secondly, our frames. We set out to design frames that you would be happy to wear out in public. Working with experienced frame designers we have developed a fashionable range of glasses that we hope will suit all tastes.
Because our Blue + lenses are virtually clear with a very subtle tint (hardly noticeable when worn), combined with one of our stylish frames, you have protective eyewear you will be happy to wear anywhere!
No, we are not optometrists and we recommend that you schedule regular comprehensive eye examinations with your optometrist to detect and address any vision problems.
Yes. Whilst Baxter Blue glasses alleviate the symptoms of digital eye strain we also recommend you also do the following:
• Follow the 20/20/20 rule – take a 20 second break, from the screen every 20 minutes and look at something 20 feet away (6 meters)
• Reduce overhead lighting to eliminate screen glare
• Position yourself at arms distance away from your screen
• Ensure your monitor is flat & positioned directly in front of your face
• The top of your monitor should be at eye level or slightly lower

You can wear your Baxter's day & night, whenever you are in front of a digital screen. Wearing your Baxter's will not cause your eyes to be dependent on them or cause them any damage. For some people it may take a short time to adjust to the feel of frames on your face, so we suggest that you gradually wear them in little by little.
