Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces The Sleep Promoting Glasses

New York, NY, July 27, 2016 - Continuing its 168-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Sleep Promoting Glasses, reading glasses that filter the sleep-disrupting blue light emitted by electronic devices.

High Energy Visible (HEV) blue light emitted by today’s LCD screens is known to suppress the production of melatonin—the hormone that helps regulate the body’s internal clock to help one fall asleep. However, these glasses are worn while using smartphones and tablets.

"The optical-quality polycarbonate lenses in these glasses are infused with synthetic melanin that filters out these blue wavelengths," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns. "This helps promote the body’s natural production of melatonin, so you can watch TV before retiring for the evening."

Secured by lightweight brown thermoplastic frames, the amber-tinted lenses filter out blue light without altering the wearer’s perception of color like other models.

The Sleep Promoting Glasses is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $69.95. For more information about this product, please visit, or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at
