Are you curious about the difference between Swannies Day and Night lenses? Perhaps you’re wondering which Swannies will become your life saver. Well, you’re in the right place.

In today’s article, I’m highlighting the purpose and benefits of both day and night lenses. Let’s see how both day and night lenses work.

How do Swannies Night lenses work?


Our orange-tinted Swannies Night lenses block nearly 100% of blue light between 400-500nm and have been designed to wear before bedtime, preventing blue light from causing sleep problems. Blue light between 450-480nm has been shown to suppress the production of the vital sleep-promoting hormone, melatonin.

Ideally, at night time blue light exposure should be limited as much as possible to ensure a healthy sleep-wake cycle. As the sun disappears, this signals to your body to prepare for sleep.

Aligning ourselves naturally has become a major challenge in the digital world, as we are constantly over-exposing ourselves to harmful blue light coming from every direction. You might be reassuring yourself that your blue light blocking app is doing a great job, but think again my friend.

This is where Swannies Night lenses step in. Wearing Swannies at least 2 hours before bedtime has been shown to drastically improve your sleep.

Whenever I forget to wear my Swannies at night, my body quickly reminds me the next day why it’s absolutely crucial to remember. I end up tossing and turning at night, not only resulting in a sluggish but also unproductive day.

How do Swannies Day lenses work?


Our almost-clear Swannies day lenses are particularly designed for screen-time during the day. The Day lens blocks between 40-80% of blue light between 400-450nm, which studies suggest, is the most harmful part of the blue light spectrum.

Now, you might be wondering how exactly can this benefit you?

The purpose of the Day lens is to allow some blue light between 450-500nm through, to signal your body that it’s daytime and that you should be awake. Furthermore, blue light exposure during the day is crucial to help boost alertness, improve your memory and cognitive function, and reduce seasonal affective disorder. Additionally, the Day lens maintains color fidelity when working on your digital screen during the day. Bonus!
