Our Back Story

Overexposure to artificial light or “junk light” results in major disruptions to our sleep patterns, and can affect our overall health. In 2015, our co-founders recognized advances in science and were interested in creating solutions to reduce junk light exposure based on cutting-edge research.

The goal was to educate the world about how light impacts sleep and the direct correlation between using light-emitting devices and overall health. When our founders discovered there wasn’t an eyewear solution on the market that worked for both day and night, they developed TrueDark®.

Our product line goes beyond just blocking junk light, and expands to add healthy light and harness the power of good light at a cellular level. TrueDark® is a health and wellness technology brand committed to improving people’s lives by providing products, tools and education designed to help them control the light in their environment.
