Addeyes was founded in early 2021 by Arno Addiers, in Belgium. During the year 2020, many people were forced to work from home and ended up spending most of their days sitting in front of a screen.
Not only did this happen for work, but also in our free time we are almost always connected to a screen. Lives have changed and we spend an average of 9 hours a day in front of these digital devices.
This creates potential side effects such as mental and physical fatigue, eye strain and dry eyes, headaches and migraines and disruption of sleep patterns. The cause of this is the blue-violet and LED light which can be found on digital devices like computers, smartphones, TVs and tablets.
By wearing the Addeyes blue light blocking glasses, this harmful blue light will be filtered to improve your sleep, maximise your focus and much more. Overall, it will improve your day-to-day life.
I am Arno Addiers, an ambitious entrepreneur who founded Addeyes in early 2021. In my daily life I work as a functional and business analyst in IT projects. So I spend a lot of time behind various digital devices, just like many other people. The combination of my entrepreneurial spirit and the problems surrounding digital devices ensured that Addeyes was born. With Addeyes I want to make sure that people can expose their eyes to the blue light from digital devices in a healthy responsible way.
Addeyes frames are made from Italian cellulose acetate. The Italian company is a worldwide leader in the manufacturing and distribution of sheets made of Cellulose Acetate, a polymer of natural origin, traditionally used in the production of optical and sunglass frames.
Cellulose acetate is one of the strongest and most durable materials available for eyeglasses. It is also hypoallergenic, meaning that it does not react with the skin, which can be very important for those who suffer from allergies.
Addeyes lenses are made from Nylon, which block almost 100% of the blue light up to 400mn. Nylon lenses are also more then that:
- Nylon lenses are lighter
- Nylon lenses are more flexible
- Nylon lenses are resistant
- Nylon lenses are BPA-free
- Nylon lenses provide you with unique optical quality
- Nylon lenses are greener
