EXYRA Blue Light Sunglasses
A few months ago, I posted about EXYRA and their Blue Light Glasses (click HERE to view). Today I’m back with a review of their newest product launch – Sunglasses!
EXRYA now has a range including 6 unique styles with references to Australia’s rich and colourful heritage, All Handcrafted in Queensland and made from durable and skin-friendly acetate. They’re stylish and functional with Premium Polarized lenses which are made from the most impact-resistant material for eyeglasses. Your eyes will be protected From UVA and UVB rays and with this comes the anti-aging benefits of covering the delicate skin under and around the eyes.
We all know by now about Blue Light Glasses, especially those who work with screens on the daily. But why do we need blue light protection outside? I asked EXYRA Founder, Raymond Seubelan.
“The UV light is capable of negatively impacting biological tissue, like our eyes and skin. As such, we need to be careful and keep ourselves protected from sunlight by wearing sunglasses, a hat, and sun lotion. Visible blue-violet light is also capable of hurting your eyes. While blue-violet light doesn’t have as much energy as ultraviolet light does, it’s completely unfiltered upon reaching the retina and when blue light hits your eye it scatters more than any other colour, which mutes the richness of the visual spectrum. Our sunglasses filter Blue Light and enhance all colours to their most genuine form.”
I already knew I would love the sunglasses as I’ve got a pair of the original glasses and use them all the time. I went with ‘The Delta’ frames because of the shape and size, I usually stick with cat-eye styles but its fun to change it up!
Here are the Names of each pair of glasses and meaning behind them! Click the links to view them.
The Kalina Frame carries a name taken from the Indigenous Australian Wemba-Wemba language. Meaning love or affection, the now extinct dialogue originally occupied a territory of over 8 thousand kilometres in the south-east of Australia. Also popular in the Eastern European languages, the name Kalina also translates to ‘Viburnum’ – a flowering shrub
The Clarke frames take its name from an Australian batsman of great talent and enormous ambition, Michael Clarke. At his peak, Clarke was ranked the best test batsman in the world – a testament to not only his skills but also his determination in overcoming a chronic back injury. As Ricky Ponting’s successor, Clarke was at the helm for an Ashes whitewash in 2013-14 and a world cup triumph in 2015.
The delta frames are named after one of Australia’s most accomplished and admired female performers, Delta Goodrem. Goodrem ventured into the music industry at the age of 15 and her debut album, Innocent eye, became one of the highest selling albums in Australian history. Having survived Hodgkin’s disease as a teenager, Goodrem tirelessly works as an ambassador for a number of related organisations.
The Jedda frames take its name from the 1955 film directed by Charles Chauvel. Jedda was an important film for three different reasons, it was the final film made by Chauvel, it was the very first Australian film to be shot in colour, and it broke new ground by pairing two aboriginal actors in its leading roles. The film received a nomination for The Palm D’Or award at Cannes and performed well at the Australian box office.
The Hogan frames pay homage to an Australian comedian, actor, screen-writer and TV presenter Paul Hogan. He is best known for writing the screenplay and playing the lead role in the action comedy film Crocodile Dundee. He earned an Oscar nomination in the ‘Best Original Screenplay’ category for this movie and won the Golden Globe award for his performance as an actor. Hogan was born in New South Wales, Australia, and worked as a rigger before entering the field of entertainment.
The Robbie frames are inspired by Margot Elise Robbie, an Australian actress and film producer. Robbie has received nominations for an academy award and three Bafta awards. In 2017, Times Magazine named her one of the 100 most influential in the world. Forbes also featured her in its 30 under 30 list. Born in raised on a farm in Dalby, Queensland, Robbie began her career in Australian soap-opera Neighbours, which earned her two Logie award nominations.
I highly recommend these sunnies. UVA and B protection, great for regular wear or even if you have to work on screens outside or in a bright café. Head to the website HERE and use the code BrisCityLIfestyle to get a 15% discount on your purchase!
