BluBlocker is an American sunglasses company. We care about making you feel good and look good. Dedicated to inclusivity, positivity, fun, and eye health. Since 1986 we have been blocking blue light and promoting eye health in the BluBlocker community all over the world.
BluBlockers originated from NASA’s space program. Astronauts needed eye protection from the strong radiation of outer space so a pair of sunglasses was designed that blocked not only all the Ultra Violet rays but all the blue rays as well. At the time research was being released indicating that there were many eye diseases caused by the blue spectrum light waves. Blocking the blue light decreased the danger from blue light and as a result several things were discovered.
First, by blocking blue light, squinting seemed to disappear. Objects seemed to appear clearer and sharper and eyes of the wearer were more relaxed yet the scene appeared to be brighter.
BluBlocker saw an opportunity to introduce these sunglasses to the consumer market by obtaining patent rights from the manufacturer, lowering its cost, and providing the same protection the astronauts had.
Now, 36 years later, BluBlocker has become an icon. Known for what we call the BluBlocker smile – the reaction a person has after putting the glasses on for the first time. This reaction was well documented in our TV commercials of the 1990s.
