Are Blue Light Blocking Glasses Right for Me?

Blue light Blog

In today’s digital age, we hear a lot about the harmful effects of Blue Light. A lot of people ask us, “Are Blue Light Blocking Glasses right for me?” We think they are, and here’s why.

Blue light is high-energy light found everywhere! We are exposed to it from electronic devices we use daily. TVs, cellphones, tablets and computer screens all emit Blue Light wavelengths that range from 380 to 500 nm.
 
The American Optometric Association has shown that too much Blue Light may cause eyestrain and increase the risk of macular degeneration.
 
A survey in the Wall Street Journal found that 70% of teens use their mobile phones within half an hour of going to sleep. Equally as important, overexposure to Blue Light can cause sleep cycle disruption in children and adults by suppressing the production of melatonin. Sleepless nights lead to daytime fatigue.
 
If that doesn’t sound very pleasant, then no worries. Fifth & Ninth has got you covered!

Stylish iPhone Cases

BY: FIFTH & NINTH DESIGN TEAM
Posted:  01.17.2019

Whether you’re fun and playful or simple and minimal, there is a phone case or accessory that fits your lifestyle and personality. A lot of times we find that purchasing a phone case is a last minute, in the check-out line decision.

Either it just catches your eye, or you think it looks somewhat protective, there’s something that draws you to your phone case and the reason you choose to carry it around every single day. Ahead, we’ve narrowed down our favorites for each personality type, lifestyle and activity level.

SPORTY AND ACTIVE – PROTECTIVE CASES AND TEMPERED GLASS

For those that need a little extra support, we get it! As much as we hate to admit it, our phones are constantly in the palms of our hands. Whether we are at the gym, on a hike, or trying to reach our Apple Watch steps, the chances of an unfortunate drop are extremely high and have happened far too many times. If this is you, here is the combo we’ve come up with to alleviate some of the pressure.

Our ultra-protective Anti-Shock Clear Case and Screen Protector are both going to provide you with the highest level of protection, but are not going to give you the bulk and weight of a traditional protective phone accessory. This combo makes staying active and fit, while remaining realistic about your daily routine an easier and stress-free lifestyle to follow.

TEAM GO GREEN – CHARITABLE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY CASES

Finding a phone case that serves more of a purpose than just protecting your phone is like looking for the needle in a hackstack. But, the needle exists – It’s the BEE KIND case . We teamed up with @VLADAMUA and created a case that’s beautiful on the outside and supports a beautiful charity at the same time.

With every “Bee Kind” case purchase, we donate a portion of sales to the Honey Love Bee Keepers mission to saving the honey bees. Take your phone case purchase a step further and save a honey bee while you’re at it!

BEAUTY GURU – BEAUTY BANK PORTABLE CHARGER AND BEAUTY GLASS

Is you phone is more prone to dying when you need it the most, than it is just “slipping” out of your hands? These days, we’re finding our battery cannot keep up with our daily usage.

This is where a multi-functional portable charger comes in. Not only does our Beauty Bank come in handy when our phone battery starts dwindling during a busy day, but it also fits perfectly in the smallest handbags and can be used as a compact mirror (with a light!) when needed during the day or night. It’s truly the perfect product for the girl on the go who hates when lipstick starts smudging on her front teeth – are we right?

The Beauty Bank isn’t the only product that will save your from walking around with a red lip smudge smile! Let’s cue in the Beauty Glass. We really love multifunctional products so this one is a team favorite. The Beauty Glass is a screen protector for your phone during use, but it’s also a mirror when your phone is in lock-mode. Forget opening up your camera to check your fresh pout , just hit the lock button on your iPhone and you have a vanity mirror in your hands. Talk about damage control!
