Our Norwegian company, Filter Optix, was established in 2020 by us, two friends, who realised the negative health impacts caused by modern artificial blue lights in our current digital world. Being profound health enthusiasts, we wanted to help create a healthier solution for all people around the world while still caring for our planet.
We, the co-founders of Filter Optix, made an eco-conscious decision to take social responsibility in focusing on an environmentally sustainable profile.
This is accomplished by always trying to make our products as environmentally friendly as possible. The FSC®-certified (Forest Stewardship Council®) eco-biodegradable acetate material for the frames, and the FSC®-certified paper from 100% recycled materials for the packaging, were specifically and consciously chosen for this reason.
Improve Your Health with Style
Research has shown that overexposure to artificial blue light is associated with many health issues such as depression, anxiety, cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
The most optimal solution was to create an innovative product that could synergistically improve people’s health and wellbeing while still living in harmony with our modern digital lifestyles.
To satisfy people’s desire to look attractive, the glasses were designed with an exceptionally stylish and aesthetic look while using leading-edge filtering technology to create the most effective blue light glasses on the market.
The decision to develop 4 colours of different blue light blocking lenses came from the idea to accommodate all types of settings, ensuring the greatest health benefits while considering people’s preferences in looks. Each of the 4 lenses were designed through a rigorous process to create superior blue light glasses, ensuring optimal protection from artificial blue light for improved sleep, health and wellbeing.
We (Robin and Hendrik), the co-founders of Filter Optix, were born and raised in Norway and met each other at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) when studying for our Master of Science.
We quickly realised a common interest in health and fitness, which quickly became a shared passion, and eventually the beginning of the Filter Optix adventure. Our passion and enthusiasm encouraged us to continuously improve our health and fitness through consistent training, healthy nutrition and other biohacking strategies.
This eventually led us to learn about the central importance of high-quality sleep for optimal health and how our modern digital world is disrupting the quality of our sleep and circadian rhythm. We learned about blue blocking glasses from various brands, and quickly realised a desire to make blue blocking glasses with advanced filtering properties and top-tier lenses while being stylish and aesthetically pleasing.
