Innovative New Glasses Designed to Improve Sleep
Date:10/19/2013

Plainview, NY (PRWEB) October 19, 2013

Though it sounds more like science fiction than science, evidence suggests that wearing special glasses at night to filter blue light reduces insomnia and promotes restful sleep.

Long before the term R.E.M. was coined or brain waves were measured, people knew they slept better in the dark. Flames were put out in caves and Victorian era curtains were drawn. Recent findings demonstrate the chemical mechanisms behind this phenomenon. Light inhibits the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that influences sleep cycles. Though any light can cause sleep disturbance, a Harvard study demonstrates that blue light does so twice as much. Indeed, a Google search of the term "blue light and sleep" shows many such studies.

Dr. Jim Gallas, inventor of the Melatonin Production Factor lens technology explains that because blue light suppresses the production of Melatonin during the evening, any filter that reduces blue light will reduce this suppression, thereby allowing healthier sleep. Previously introduced blue blocking products had the negative side effect of distorting colors. Dr. Gallas asserts that the improved MPF melanin lenses reduce blue light while actually enhancing colors.

Debby Burk Optical has partnered with Photo Protective Technologies to offer affordable access to MPF lenses in fashion forward eyeglass frames. "Sleepy Time Glasses" start at under $50 and provide the sleep enhancing benefits of blue blocking lenses with improved color perception.

To quote Debby Burk, CEO of DebSpecs.com, "We love to be cutting edge in our products & technology. Who would have thought an optical retailer could improve people's
