Hey!

I use these glasses and they work perfectly. Sure, I will help you, PM me your address and I will figure out how much is the cost to ship it to you.

I am about 50% healed up. I think it will take me till the end of the year to get 100%. My short break is longer than I expected but I will be coming back with more info and insight. Thank all of you who have supported me, I never forget, I send you my love!  I will lurk from time to time!

I've often wondered whether some performance sport sunglasses with orange lenses (Oakley has some) are equivalent - with the added benefit of looking ever so slightly more "conventional."  Anyone done the research on this?

I bought those glasses and started using them last night as soon as the sun went down.  First of all I think it's hilarious wearing orange sunglasses around my house at night.  It's kinda like being in another world when all the lights you look at are glowing orange like fire which makes sense because before artificial lighting fire was our only light source besides moonlight.  When I got in bed and turned the lights off and put on my sleep mask it definitely had a strong effect on me.  I didn't get to sleep any faster than usual but I'm still fine tuning my diet and dealing with possible digestive issues.

Update:  I've been using these for a week now.  I put them on an hour before bed and I've been falling asleep right away.

Lots of sunglass makers will make a no blue lens if you look into it.

I work night shift 11p to 7a. about 11am I will put mine on while I am still moving around the house and getting ready for bed. I have noticed after about 30 min I start to yawn and can feel my self settling down. I also bought a amber light bulb on amazon that I put in my nightstand lamp so that I can read in bed. I don't sleep in the amber glasses I found an eye mask that blocks out all light while I sleep. It dose move around and I might not be waring it when I wake up. I have tried to black out my room as much as possible.

I tried them last night, although perhaps unnecessarily. I went to a bar and got home at 3:30am and was already ready to fall asleep. I'll try them again on day that is more normal.

The amber lenses I got on amazon I like these becuase the wrap around my eyes and fit very close to the face. I do not notice any leaking blue light coming around the sides of the lens. Just my two sense. I continue to think it is helping me to settle down before going to bed.

So do you just need any orange UV lenses to block out the blue light? Or is there something particular that they need to do or have?

A long time ago I saw an infomercial selling blue blocker glasses that could lead you to think they are something special. From what I understand of the physics is orange glasses should still block blue light. the biology is that an area of the retina is stimulated by blue light in the range of around 460 to 480 nm, when stimulated the pineal gland stop the production of melatonin. wearing the glasses starts the "dim light phase" of the circadian rhythm.

 

If you have easy access to cheap orange glasses I would say give it a shot. if you are starting from scratch I would say spend a few extra $'s.

These ones are $16.99 on amazon http://www.amazon.co.../ref=pd_cp_hi_2 I don't know what that translates to your side of the pond but the wrap around aspect is what I like. another sportier option are these http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B000USRG90/  but if there is light leaking in on the side I don't know if it defets the purpose. Dave wears a pair in all the you tube videos that I have seen that look more like aviator glasses. Mine look like senior citizen glasses, but I only wear them at home before bed so fashion is low priority at that point.

A couple of months back I got a a pair of the orange lensed glasses (Uvex-S1933X).  I slip them on in the evening and 45 minutes latter, I just naturally roll off to sleep.  One of the best $10 sleep hacks I can think of.

 

They do have one down side.  My wife and daughter make merciless fun on me when ever they seem me wear them.  I've got to admit, they do look gooney.

 

Well, I just couldn't take it anymore and went for a sleeker version: http://www.berettaus...sses/soc310001/

 

I also got a pair of their purple ones, which might just do the opposite.  I use them during the day, to raise my attention.

 

Oh, They still make fun of them.

I have been using these glasses for few weeks now. http://www.amazon.co...g/dp/B000USRG90

I can notice the difference before I go to bed. I`m much more relaxed and I get sleep much faster when I go to bed.  Great investment.

I still wake too early but thats different story.

Order these:

 

http://www.amazon.co...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

epic fail. Lenses aren't actual orange, they're mirror orange. when you put them on, they're dark blue when you look through them!

 

So ordered these:

 

http://www.amazon.co...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Left hope these actually have orange lenses!
