Are These Real Life Rose-Colored Glasses?

Rose Colored Glasses

Happy Lens sunglasses by Spy Optic are specially designed to boost your mood, alertness, and quality of sleep. Hard to believe, right? Apparently, science has confirmed their joy-inspiring abilities. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine found that blue-enriched white light made people happier and more alert, so these lenses were created to allow long wave blue light to pass through while blocking ultraviolet rays. They’re also meant to help you avoid the eye soreness that comes along with extra sunshine. Wearing the glasses increases the contrast of what you’re seeing around you, including on your smartphone, but can make it tough to see other light displays like those on a gas pump or a car. They seem to be a particularly great idea for someone who gets down in the dumps on cloudy days and wants to get the most out of whatever sunlight they can (such as myself). Whether they actually work or not, even whatever placebo effect they give off, might make it worth a shot. I’ll take whatever extra happiness I can get! [Gizmodo]
