Here are the basics: your Felix Gray’s journey begins in Italy and travels all the way to your doorstep. Our virtually clear lenses will not distort your color perception or acuity, and will filter over 50% of all, and 90% of the most harmful range of Blue Light (400-440nm). Additionally, our lenses have a premium anti-glare coating that eliminates 99% of glare, offer 100% UV protection, and are smudge- and scratch-resistant. We use premium, imported Italian acetate and German steel barrel hinges for our handcrafted frames, and our patented lens technology is engineered in the USA. Because we own our supply chain, we are able to offer our glasses at an honest price, whereas traditional opticians would charge more than twice as much for the quality and effectiveness that Felix Gray provides.
There are two other ways to filter Blue Light as well. One is with a yellow tinted lens. While this is effective, it distorts color and, well, makes you look like Bono. The other is with an external coating, which is generally ineffective (typically filtering only ~25% of Blue Light and not targeting the highest energy wavelengths). Additionally, coats deflect the Blue Light so the lens appears blue when in front of a screen and often peel away over time.
We believe that Felix Gray lenses are the perfect balance between a clear, beautiful lens and an effective Blue Light filtering, anti-glare solution.
