What do Swannies Blue Light Blocking Glasses Do?
Swannies Glasses block the blue light wavelength emitted from all light-emitting electronic devices and artificial lighting. This includes cell phones, computer screens, TVs, tablets, led lighting and even your kitchen fridge light.
This harmful blue light has been shown to inhibit the body's ability to naturally produce melatonin, the sleep promoting hormone which results in difficulty sleeping, staying asleep and obtaining good quality sleep. When worn in the hours before bedtime, Swannies filter out this blue light, allowing your body to properly prepare for sleep, so you can fall asleep faster, and sleep better, all night long.
When worn during prolonged use of electronic devices, Swannies also help prevent symptoms of digital eye strain such as sore eyes, headaches and fatigue.
How do Swannies Blue Light Blocking glasses work?
Through extensive research and testing, we have developed a lens which combines just the right colored tint, with special blue light reflecting AR coatings to block the highest percentage of blue light.
These innovative lenses filter out blue light on the visible wavelength spectrum that has been proven to disrupt sleep. The lenses allow all other light to be transmitted, leaving you free to watch TV and use electronic devices without negatively affecting your body clock.
How are your glasses different from other cheaper glasses?
Many glasses that claim to be blue light blocking glasses on the market are just orange tinted glasses no different to ballistic safety goggles. These glasses provide a small amount of protection against blue light as orange color alone is not sufficient to filter the whole range of the blue light wavelength. Other glasses have no tint at all and can therefore only ever be effective at blocking the lower part of the blue light spectrum, if at all.
Swannies Blue Light Blocking Glasses are FDA registered and have been extensively researched, designed and manufactured specifically to block the full spectrum blue light by combining a specific colored tint with special AR coatings which work together to effectively filter blue light.
Swannies are made with top quality acetate frames with spring hinges and top of the line CR-39 lenses with UV rated anti-glare coating on both front and back. We are confident that you won't find better quality blue light blocking glasses on the market.
Do Swannies work during the day and outside in the sun or daylight?
Swannies are 100% UV-rated and offer protection from UV rays. Swannies are however primarily designed to be worn during the evening and when using digital devices and do not offer as dark a tint as sunglasses, which are designed to reduce sun glare.

What do I need to provide for my prescription Swannies order?
You will need to upload a picture of your current prescription. Please ensure that the prescription is for spectacles and not contact lenses, as they are both different. Please ensure your prescription includes pupillary distance (PD). If you do not have the PD, please let us know and we can help you work it out.
Do you need pupillary distance for my prescription Swannies?
Yes, we will need your pupillary distance but if you do not have it, you can follow the below instructions, or you can send us a photo like this the one attached, with standard sized card, and will work it out for you.
- Wear your glasses. (Or any glasses if you don't have your own. Even just try on demo glasses at the mall if you are that bold.)
- Have a felt-tip non-permanent marker handy.
- Focus on a single object in the far distance (anything farther than 20 feet works, but farther is better).
- Raise the marker to your right lens and precisely put a dot on it directly over the distant object.
- Repeat for your left eye. If done correctly, with both eyes open the two dots should overlap into a single dot over the distant object. If not repeat making the markings until they do form a single dot.
- Measure the distance between the two dots on your lenses with a millimeter ruler.
- That's your distance PD.
- If you need a near PD for reading or computer glasses, just do the same procedure but focus instead on the object you will be looking at, either reading material or computer monitor.

How do I use the Magnesium Spray?
If you have not used a magnesium spray before, we recommend starting slowly and if necessary, dilute with water until you build tolerance.
We recommend using the Magnesium Spray 30 minutes before bedtime, but it can also be used anytime to assist with relaxation, for example during periods of stress. Magnesium Spray may also help with sore muscles and cramping.
Air dry for best results. It does not need to be rinsed off after application, but if you desire, leave on for at least 20 minutes before rinsing or wiping off. You may experience a slight tingling sensation at first, which is normal.
Why is a spray the best way to take Magnesium?
Our digestive system actually has a tough time taking full advantage of magnesium, absorbing only 50% of the magnesium we consume. That is why transdermal magnesium is a great way to get magnesium into your system where it really counts.
What percentage of Magnesium is the Swanwick Sleep Magneisum Oil Spray?
What is Magnesium Oil Spray?
Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxant and anti-stress mineral, which makes you sleepy and sleep deeply. It works by moving calcium out of the muscles, inducing sleepiness.
Magnesium oil isn’t actually an “oil” after all, but instead was coined as such due to the high saturation of magnesium chloride in water, which presents itself in an “oil-like” texture.
