How We Got Here
Many people struggle to sleep easily at night. Living with chronic illness, we were no exception.
In early 2020 we were suddenly stuck inside with time to face our personal challenges. With Dan unable to continue personal training and Grace's corporate job moved online, we focused on something we'd ALWAYS struggled with: Sleep.
You'd think that with no commute and less outings that you could sleep in longer and deeper, right? Well... not quite.
Here's the thing: with everything going virtual, the world demands more screen-time than ever before. More hours spent on Zoom calls, FaceTime and Netflix marathons.
Dedicated research shows that blue light from your screen (think phone, laptop, TV) causes chronic inflammation behind the eyes and stops your body from naturally producing melatonin... cue headaches and insomnia.
Without any stylish and effective options, we took matters into our own hands; design Canadian blue light glasses that make online work comfortable and reduce headaches, as well as boost melatonin to help you get a better night's sleep naturally.
Through testing our DeepSleep lenses, we notice a dramatic increase in both our Deep and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, along with the relief of falling asleep easier and staying asleep throughout the night.
After wearing the DeepSleep glasses 2-3 hours before bed our sleep improved almost instantly. The SocialLight glasses make the long days working online more comfortable, and ease the pain of headache and migraines.
Now we spend less time stressing over headaches and sleep schedules and more on life. What started as a search for relief turned into a practical tool to share with our friends and family... and now you.
We know first-hand just how frustrating it is to have health hold you back, so we work to create practical tools for a higher quality of life.
