The LUMES story.
Back in 2018, we were working in corporate office jobs where we’d spend long hours in front of bright screens. We’d regularly leave the office with eye strain, headaches and sore eyes. It wasn’t sustainable and we knew something had to change.
What we discovered is that high-intensity blue light and glare from screens is not good for your eyes. It can also affect the quality of your sleep. We wanted to find a solution.
From apps to screen filters, we tested a whole host of different fixes. We realized that blue light blocking glasses helped but we couldn’t find a pair that worked well and looked great - ones that we’d be comfortable to wear to our own office jobs.
LUMES was born.
A few months and several prototypes later, we had finally created what we were looking for: a stylish pair of blue light blocking glasses with practically transparent lenses.
Fast-forward to today and we are incredibly honored that people across the world are now wearing LUMES to work more comfortably and productively.

A symbol of expression.
LUMES was founded with one simple objective: to empower people using technology to unlock their full potential. Whether you're in the office, the studio or at home, LUMES glasses can help you work smarter. We believe that great ideas shouldn't be held back by anything.
Today's blue light blocking glasses are pricey, inelegant and ineffective. They simply don't make the cut. Each day, LUMES sets a new standard for what digital eyewear should do and should be.
Aiming for perfect.
We know that to make things people love, you have to love the things you make. From design to delivery, every pair of LUMES is crafted to delight. Our frames are created for modern living; made from acetate that's beautiful, durable and lightweight, all at the same time.
Experts at making.
Each and every pair of LUMES are brought to life by experienced manufacturers who know their trade, inside-out. We’ve developed a strict process to check quality and ensure that the finished product is as beautiful as it was intended to be.
