Who We Are
With our kids' ever increasing use of screens, limiting their exposure to harmful blue light is an issue all parents face.
As we looked around for options to protect our children’s eyes during remote learning, we discovered the industry hadn’t reacted to the new normal and retail eyewear hadn’t changed much since the days our grandfather was selling glasses from a pushcart cart in New York more than 75 years ago.
That’s when we got busy putting our experience to work to create perfectly fitting, attractive blue light glasses for children of all ages. With our own children's tastes in mind, we designed BluEyes to appeal to our opinionated minis, while providing the important protection they deserve!
