MitoHQ Mito Shades Blue Light Blocking Glasses
Protect your mitochondria from harmful 430nm to 550nm blue light
Why the need for blue blockers anyway?
With the rise of electronic devices, your eyes are now exposed to increasing levels of harmful light spectrums. Mito Shades protect your eyes from the dangers of UV rays and harmful, high-energy blue light for a lifetime of vision preservation and performance. Everyone interested in benefiting from lifelong healthy vision, especially those at high-risk of macular degeneration, should wear Mito Shades.
MitoHQ takes this one step further again. Whilst the blue-blocking and biohacking community are focused on blocking blue light for specific eye diseases, there are much greater risks to our mitochondria.
Specifically, the harmful blue light between 430nm and 550nm is damaging to our mitochondrial DNA. As you will know if you have done our introductory course on mitochondria health, damage to our mitochondrial DNA is responsible for approximately 85% of all chronic disease, which can be prevented and reversed. Harmful High Energy Visible (HEV) blue light is one such hazard.
So don’t just protect your eyes from harmful UV blue light, protect your mitochondria for optimal health span, with Mito Shades specifically designed for maximum protection and minimal visual distortion.

- Low Mood
- Poor Sleep
- Jet Lag
- Hormone and Metabolism Disruption
- Digital Eye Strain
- Sore and Tired Eyes
- Headaches and Migraines
- Blurred Vision
- Macular Degeneration
Why Mito Shades are the gold standard for digital device protection
Most blue blockers on the market today are focused on reducing symptoms of a specific condition such as digital eye strain. This is typical for blue blockers using clear lens technology. Whilst this may look good, it provides very minimal shielding (less than 5% reduction) from harmful blue light that is responsible for retin A and mitochondria damage. Additionally, our lens technology is the gold standard in blue light protection, offering maximum protection with minimum impact to colour perception.

Who Should be Wearing Mito Shades?
- Anyone who spends over 2 hours a day staring at a digital screen
- Driving during the night
- Anyone exposed to blue light after sunset (e.g shift workers in hospitals etc)
- Online gaming enthusiasts
- Anyone who wants to protect their eyes and vision from the harmful effects of blue light.
- Anyone with a chronic disease that needs to improve their mitochondria
- Anyone who wants to prevent chronic disease
- What wavelength of light do
Mito Shades block?
DAY TIME LENSES
Designed for daytime use blocking 59% of harmful blue light wavelengths, whilst still allowing pure colour perception.
NIGHT TIME LENSES
Designed for after-dark use, blocking 100% of blue light wavelengths for better sleep, and improved circadian biology.
What makes Mito Shades better than other blue blockers?
Mito Shades do not affect colour perception and provides the correct amount of light filtration for best daytime protection. We use a priority infused pigmentation technology that does not scratch or wears off. This provides a crisp, comfortable viewing experience that doesn’t distort colour vision and provides the correct amount of light filtration for daytime protection. Yellow dyes can help block blue light, but they also alter vision which can make them uncomfortable to wear.
The yellow tints used in traditional blue-blocking lenses also fade over time and can be easily scratched. Take the Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue colour test when wearing your Daytime Mito Shades and you will notice no difference than if not wearing any glasses. Yellow dye lenses fail this test.
Clear lenses have been shown to provide very little protection at the critical 455 nm range used by most computer, tablet and smartphone screens.

Who should wear Mito Shades?
Anyone who spends considerable time on a computer or digital device will benefit from wearing our blue-blocking glasses.
Why choose Mito Shades?
We offer the most effective lens on the market for mitochondrial DNA protection. Other blue blockers are typically very yellow and have low transparency or clear lenses and provide little to no protection.
Mito shades day lenses have a virtually clear lens and look just like a normal pair of glasses when you’re wearing them. A lot of our frames are built with cellulose acetate, the same material used by most high-end eyewear brands and our selection of vintage and classic styles will keep you looking sharp.
Do you offer prescription lenses?
Prescription lenses are coming in the near future. We know there are a lot of people that require prescription lenses and we are focused on making this available as soon as possible.
