How To Get Back Your Sparkle: An Effective Solution

by | Jun 19, 2019 | Swannies Stories

Want a cure for your chronic headaches? Curious about the hype around blue light? Do you know all about blue light and want blue light protection at daytime?

This article is for you.

Fueled by our scientific validation and the desire to find new ways to help our customers work, play and sleep better, we expanded our vision. The success of our Classic Night Swannies and a glimpse of demand encouraged us to launch yet another Classic.

In 2018, we set off in pursuit of the perfect combination to cater to both your sleep and eye protection needs.

With the latter in the spotlight, you can expect a few aha moments and the best blue light blocking solution on the market.

The Inconvenient Truth


If you’re following our blogs, you should know the price you pay for basking in excessive blue light at night, how it affects your circadian rhythm, and how our Night Swannies help people sleep better. Get in the know if you’re intrigued. It’s important, my friend.

Now that you’re up to speed, be aware that the blue light nightmare doesn’t end there.

Our top priority has always been to help people sleep better. We did it! Our customers told us and presented us with an exciting challenge. They needed blue light protection during the day – minus the orange tint.

Research. Research. Research.

In the light of discovery, blue light isn’t the bogeyman that it’s made out to be. Truthfully, it’s more complicated than that.

What you may not have realized is that the sun is the biggest source of natural blue light.

It’s crucial to be exposed to a sensible amount of sunlight. In fact, the best way to maintain a healthy circadian rhythm is to bask in those satisfying morning rays. Provided, you’re being mindful.

Previously, blue light was known to be a problem only after sunset. Read about it here.

However, with our client-centric philosophy in mind, we realized that artificial light can still cause various problems during the day. Especially when you expose your eyeballs to it all day and every day or your office is flooded with high energy light. Not ideal at all.

Hmmm, what to do?

Declare war on Digital Eye Strain


The Vision Council reports that about 80 percent of American adults can’t live without their digital devices for less than two hours per day with nearly 67 percent using multiple devices simultaneously, and 59 percent report experiencing digital eye strain.

There’s no doubt in my mind people are increasingly experiencing a love-hate relationship with their digital devices. I know I do. Some days I can’t see myself living without it until physical discomfort changes everything. That’s when I envision following in the footsteps of Emile Hirsch – abandoning my possessions and setting off on a journey to the Alaskan wilderness.

Can you relate? If you nodded yes, chances are you’re looking for an effective solution.

Let’s look at the symptoms associated with digital eye strain before I let you in on a few easy solutions:

  • Headaches
  • Sore and tired eyes
  • Increased sensitivity to light
  • Sore neck, shoulders, and back
  • Poor behavior
  • Reduced attention span
  • Irritability
  • Eye strain, dry or irritated eyes

Lucky for you, we created a middle ground called Day Swannies. They will help you enjoy the benefits of the blue light exposure needed for a healthy circadian rhythm and simultaneously reduce blue light responsible for digital eye strain. Bonus!

We wanted our customers to stay focused, work smarter, and play harder during the day. We did it and we’re over the moon. Don’t take my word for it though, see what Day Swannies-wearing customers say:

My eyes do not get tired with long days of computer use
I’ve never had much of a problem with sleeping. But the tiredness of my eyes from computer use was a problem. No more. My RX Swannies make a big difference, especially with the addition of IRIS blue-light-blocking software on my computer — far better than fLux).


5.0 out of 5 stars

Decreased headaches!
Couldn’t be happier so far. I work from home, in front of the computer up to 14 hours/day. I almost always get headaches towards the end of each day but so far haven’t had a headache since wearing these. Yes!!!!! Leads to me being in a much better mood late at night. Great product, grab yourself one.

I have been using the original Swanwick’s for over a year now. They are excellent at reducing eyestrain. When I got the email notifying me that they had released a day lens I placed the order within a few seconds. I’ve been using the glasses for a few days now and am quite happy with the results. Far less eye strain at the end of the day after hours upon hours of looking at screens.

Eye strain finally gone! 🙂
If you sit in front of a computer for long hours, you have to get a pair of blue-blocking glasses — and this is the best pair I have found on the market. I used to get tons of fatigue in my right eye, and since wearing glasses, it has vanished. The Swanwick glasses feel great, look cool, the company has a good reputation. Super happy with the purchase and I highly recommend!

Loooove these glasses
I just love how awesome these glasses are! I wear them when playing video games, working and even at night, I had already purchased the tinted ones and was also amazed. When I saw they had released this version I knew I had to get them too and I can’t be more happy with my purchase! They also look great on me! Totally worth every penny.

In combination with our proven eyewear solution, try these tips to relieve your physical discomfort and become a productive machine:

  • Take frequent breaks from your digital devices,
  • Reduce overhead lighting to eliminate screen glare,
  • Position yourself at arm’s distance away from the screen for proper viewing distance when using your computer,
  • If possible, increase text size on your devices for better definition.
