Blue Light Blocking Sunglasses: How Do They Work?


From the mobile device in your pocket to the sun in the sky, blue light waves are unavoidable.

Blue light is found within the ultra-violet spectrum and has many sources. All lenses by Randolph Engineering are handcrafted from one of three three lens materials designed for the highest performance and state-of-the-art protection.

How do sunglasses block blue light?


Blue light blocking sunglasses are designed with filters within the lenses to block harmful UV rays from the sun and blue light from screens or devices.

Sunglasses designed to block blue light have the distinct advantage for indoor and outdoor wear in bright environments.

Polarized lenses pair well with blue light blocking sunglasses for outdoor eye protection. Polarized technology eliminates glare, reducing eye strain and allowing better vision under the sun. We offer a wide selection of polarized and non-polarized sunglasses in various aviator styles.
