Blue Light Blocking Glasses That Protect Your Eyes Inside and Outdoors

Traditional “blue blockers” or “blue light blocking glasses” are designed to protect your eyes from the harmful effects of artificial blue light. This means that they are meant to be worn inside only – when you’re exposed to artificial light sources, such as LEDs, fluorescents, or digital devices that have LED screens (e.g. computers, tablets, televisions, smart phones, etc.). These glasses are great for extended periods of time indoors, but historically speaking, there hasn’t been a convenient solution for people who also spend time outdoors exposed to harsh sunlight – until now.

Introducing TrueDark® Daylights Transition eyewearpremium 2-in-1 blue light blocking glasses with lenses that literally transition between indoor and outdoor functionality!  

How TrueDark’s Transitioning Blue Light Blocking Glasses Work

As the name suggests, our Daylights Transition eyewear is meant for daytime use. They are available with either: 

  • Yellow lenses that block 75% of artificial blue light while indoors — these are the most functional in terms of protecting your eyes and energy from exposure to blue junk light during the daytime. If you have extra sensitive eyes, then this style is ideal for you!

  • Clear lenses that block 40% of blue light — these lenses offer a stylish alternative for those who may have sensitive eyes, and that need to see true colors on a computer screen or stay in uniform while at work. These glasses are a simple solution for helping you stay in harmony with your lifestyle while also stopping junk light in your workspace. 

Proactively managing your exposure to artificial blue light throughout the daytime can help you: 

  • Reduce eye strain and headaches 
  • Improve your energy and mood 
  • Improve your sleep at night 

Note that not all blue light is badthe sun produces natural blue light that helps regulate your circadian rhythm. With that said, it’s still important to wear eye protection outdoors because the sun emits UV rays that can be extremely harmful to your eyes and vision.  

In addition to blocking artificial blue light indoors, all Daylights Transition styles function as sunglasses when exposed to natural sunlight, blocking 99% of UVA/UVB rays.

The Daylights Transition lenses have several key features, including:

    • Scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses  
    • Anti-reflective coating on UV 400 lenses 
    • Foldable hard-shell glasses case  
    • Microfiber lens cleaning cloth 
    • Photochromic lenses for indoor-to-outdoor functionality 

TrueDark Daylights Transition styles are the first-ever blue light blocking glasses that also function as sunglasses. They are strategically designed using pure, durable, prescription grade polycarbonate lenses with anti-reflective coatings to reduce glare, as well as tinted colored lenses that are durable and scratch resistantUsing tinted lenses is important because colored coatings can easily be scratched off. With that said, the color of your lenses is more than just a fashion statement as different tints can affect your visual field in different ways. 

The original Daylights Transitions and Daylights Transition Aviators have gray tinted lenses, which are very popular because they are suitable for general, all-purpose use on both cloudy and sunny days.

Key Benefits of sunglasses with gray tinted lenses:

    • They can help reduce fatigue 
    • They allow you to perceive colors as they are and see objects in their truest form 
    • Reduces glare, especially off water and wet roads 
    • Great for variable weather on sunny or overcast days

Daylights Transition Fairlanes alternatively have yellow tinted lenses, which provide greater clarity, especially if you’re trying to focus on moving objects in low-light or hazy conditions. These lenses are commonly worn by outdoor enthusiasts and professional athletes because weather conditions can directly affect their performance. 

Key Benefits of sunglasses with yellow tinted lenses:  

    • They enhance contrast and depth perception, which makes them great for overcast, hazy or foggy conditions 
    • Reduces the impact of blue light, such as eye strain and fatigue

Junk Light, Disrupted Sleep, and Your Health

Exposure melatonin disrupting junk light can have have effects on many aspects of your health

Sleep cycle disruption

Junk light exposure when traveling can disrupt your circadian rhythm. Long-term exposure to light at night which accompanies shift work is listed as a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization. Light at night has shown to be highly associated with significantly the risk of hormone specific such as cancers of the breast and prostate.


The flickering wavelength of light associated with LEDs and compact fluorescent lights emit blue light that inhibits melatonin production but also create a unique glare that impacts your retina causing eye strain, headaches, and physical and mental fatigue.

Weight Gain

Red light and darkness move leptin and ghrelin into patterns that are (context dependent) associated with less hunger, while blue light does the opposite and can move both into patterns associated with more hunger.

Anxiety/Depression & Depression

Increase in cortisol, the stress hormone, due to circadian disruption. Memory recall is impaired with consistent sleep deprivation and may leave you distracted and not performing your absolute best.

The Importance of Melanopsin Cells

The Key to Better Sleep

detects blue light

The melanopsin cells detect blue light it tells your brain that it is “daytime” and less melatonin is produced.

The signals to your brain to alert brightness and for the brain to increase or suppress the sleep hormone, melatonin.

Harness Your Biology to Fight Junk Light

Your body requires some blue light at the right time of day and from the right sources. That’s why we created TrueDark® Sleep Technology that gives you 24-protection from junk light day and night.

Use TrueDark® Twilights When You’re Ready for Sleep

Stop Junk Light with patented TrueDark® Twilights technology that frees your hormones and neurotransmitters to do their best work.

When the sun goes down, blue light isn’t the only junk light that can disrupt our sleep cycle and more than blue blockers are needed. Patented TrueDark® Twilights is the first and only solution that is designed to work with melanopsin, a protein in your eyes responsible for absorbing light and sending sleep/wake signals to your brain. Without melanopsin, melatonin can’t be accessed.

When you wear your Twilights for as little as 30 min before bed you prevent your melanopsin from detecting the wrong wavelengths of light at the wrong time of day. This supports your circadian rhythm and helps you fall asleep faster and get more restorative and restful sleep.

TrueDark® Daylights for Your Waking Hours

The highly advanced lenses in TrueDark® Daylights operate on a more advanced level than traditional blue blockers.

Blue light emitted from the sun helps regulate our sleep/wake cycle. However, in today’s world, we’re exposed to an overabundance of blue light, or junk light from artificial light. This includes hours spent in front of  TVs, phones, and computers. It also includes time spent in artificial man made light with LEDs and fluorescent lights. Even if we’re simply reading a book, we’re doing that in artificial light which emit dramatically more blue light than the sun. That overexposure to junk light during the day has a dramatic impact on our neurotransmitters and hormones that are responsible for quality sleep.
