We did the research so you don’t have to :)
Here are the basics: your Felix Gray’s journey begins in Italy and ends on your doorstep. Our clear lenses filter over 50% of blue light, have a premium anti-glare coating, offer 100% UV protection, and are smudge and scratch resistant. We use premium, imported Italian acetate and barrel hinges for our handcrafted frames, and our lens technology is engineered in the USA. Because we own our own 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 a coating, which is generally ineffective (typically filtering only ~25% of blue light and not targeting the highest energy wavelengths). Additionally, coats deflect 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.
