Frequently Asked Questions
Ezekiel-ion glasses block 100% of harmful ultraviolet (UV) light, filter out the harsh blue light emitted by digital devices such as mobile phones, computers, televisions, tablets, and laptops. They also shield you from harmful electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation as well as releasing negative ions and far-infrared (FIR) to provide you with numerous health benefits associated with negative ions and FIR.
Negative ions are absorbed by breathing and through the skin. Ezekiel-ion negative ion & FIR energy glasses serve as an energy source for the head area around the eyes. Negative ions and FIR:
- Improve blood circulation thus can help reduce eye fatigue, dark eye circles, eye bags, reduce headaches or migraines.
- Improve cellular function and promote recovery from eye fatigue and may help relieve eye conditions such as dry and red eyes, myopia (near-sighted), astigmatism, presbyopia, eye floaters, elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), cataract and glaucoma.*
- Elevate mental concentration and performance. Improve your energy levels and focus. Negative ions are also proven to filter the air so you can breathe fresher air!
For best results, you should wear them throughout the day (8-10 hours/day).
If you spend more than an hour a day on the computer, mobile phone or watching TV you need Ezekiel-ion glasses.
If your vision is less than 20/20 with existing eye condition, Ezekiel-ion glasses can help.*
Whether you are working in the office, at home, on the road or playing computer games, Ezekiel-ion glasses are for YOU.
Absolutely! Ezekiel-ion glasses are the most technologically advanced glasses on the market today. Most computer glasses only block ultraviolet (UV) and blue light. Ezekiel-ion glasses block not only blue light and UV but also EMF radiation PLUS the unique ability to release beneficial negative ions and far-infrared (FIR) to improve your eye health. Our glasses will allow your eyes to focus easier, reduce eye fatigue and eye strain as well as helping you with your existing eye conditions.*
Ezekiel-ion special lens is also the most effective lens in blocking the most harmful blue light wavelengths between 380nm and 450nm when compared to all leading brands. It has many features not found in common computer glasses. Unlike typical computer glasses, our glasses are very lightly tinted for contrast and are almost unnoticeable. They have anti-reflection coatings on both sides of the lenses to reduce glare as well as resistance to scratches and smudges.
Our frames are made from a proprietary, hypoallergenic nanotech material that is incredibly durable, flexible and lightweight. Did we mention that our glasses will also make you look sharp? They are contemporary designs with styles that will last the test of time.
The best computer glasses are those, of course, that can block blue light effectively while allowing the good blue light to pass through. Blue light generally is defined as visible light ranging from 380 to 500 nm. Blue light sometimes is further broken down into blue-violet light (roughly 380 to 450 nm) and blue-turquoise light (roughly 450 to 500 nm). The blue-violet light is the one you need to avoid.
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and numerous researchers have found the wavelengths of blue light hazard and also identified the peak Hazard Factor (Blue Light Hazard Factor B(λ), which defines the sensitivity of the human eye to low wavelength spectrum emissions) at 435 to 440 nm. That is where your eyes get “fried” by the blue light. In fact, 425 to 450 nm are bad.
When buying computer glasses, always ask how many % of blue light do they block at 425 to 450 nm. Do not even consider blue light glasses that block less than 50% of overall blue light. Many will tell you that their glasses block 50% of blue light but 95% of the “most harmful” blue light at 410 nm and below. Hmmm… These are the deceiving marketing tactics from many sellers of blue light glasses that we have seen over and over again. Unfortunately, most of the current blue light glasses will protect you at less than 35% where the blue light will fry your eyes! The worst offenders that we have seen are “blue light glasses” with nothing more than just a yellow tint that does absolutely nothing to protect your eyes! Do not be a victim. Be an informed consumer.
At Ezekiel-ion, we have done our homework. We make sure that our anti-blue light property is baked in, not coated. We make sure that our lenses will protect you from the most harmful blue light at its peak. Our overall blue light protection is 85%, one of the highest in the “clear” lens category, Of course, we can go higher, but then do you want to look like someone from the outer space with orange and red lenses?
Yes. Research and clinical studies have shown that negative ion and far-infrared (FIR) have healing properties. The positive effects of negative ions and FIR from Ezekiel-ion glasses may help you with your existing eye conditions such as myopia, astigmatism, dry & red eyes, presbyopia, eye floaters, elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), cataract and glaucoma.*
For best results, you should wear them throughout the day (8-10 hours/day).
Absolutely! Ezekiel-ion glasses work great with contact lenses and provide protection from UV, blue light and EMI radiation from your smartphone, computer or TV screen. The glasses should help against your contact lenses becoming dry and uncomfortable. Last but not least, it may also help you with your existing eye conditions. You may see your vision improves over time!*
Blue light, a short-wavelength light, also known as high-energy visible blue light (HEV) ranging from 380 nm to 500 nm has been singled out as more significantly disruptive to sleep than any other colors on the light spectrum. It suppresses the release of melatonin, disrupts circadian rhythms, and may influence negative changes to mood. Circadian disruption produces serious effects including the increase in obesity and depression.
As a result of our long exposure to artificial blue light, we have eye fatigue, dry eyes, blurred vision, and even headaches. These are symptoms of digital eye strain. Prolong exposures to artificial blue light has shown to damage the retina, the part of the eye that keeps objects in focus. It can lead to cataracts, retinal damage and possibly age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Electromagnetic (EMF) radiation is energy waves, much like visible light, emitted from a source traveling at the speed of light. It is invisible. We are constantly exposed to EMF from devices such as mobile phones, WiFi, Bluetooth, cordless phones, monitors, laptops and tablets.
Studies have shown EMF radiation can cause life-threatening diseases such as brain tumor, breast cancer, heart disease, leukemia, and miscarriage. It can also cause other conditions including allergies, asthma, elevated blood pressure, depression, fatigue, frequent infections, headaches, hormone changes, nerve damage, sleep disturbance, and even sperm abnormalities.

Since the discovery of negative ions and its’ health benefits, all things negative ions have been popping up everywhere, especially all types of air purification appliances. From industries to personal usage in homes, negative ion devices and products have proven acceptance despite the fact that negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we breathe in. Negative ion benefits do not restrict to just air that we breathe, but also things that we touch. This can be wearable fabric or accessories like clothing, socks, knee guards, bracelets, necklaces, etc.
“Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy.” (Pierce J. Howard, Ph.D., director of research, Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences, Charlotte, N.C. ) Medical research has proven that 90% of the eyes diseases are the result of hypoxia (lack of oxygen). When oxygen and water supply to the eyes is compromised it slows down the metabolic and detoxification process which leads to a host of eye-related diseases such as myopia, astigmatism, presbyopia, cataracts, glaucoma, floaters, dry eye, etc.
Hence, Ezekiel-ion glasses were born.
- How much negative ions and far infrared do Ezekiel-ion glasses releases? Will it decrease over time?
Ezekiel-ion glasses are designed to deliver an optimal amount of negative ions. Each glasses are certified to release an optimal 1200 to 1800 negative ions/cc and 8 – 14 microns of far infrared. The effectiveness of the negative ions and FIR releasing property will not decrease over time. They will continuously release negative ions and far-infrared for the life of the frame.
You should wear Ezekiel-ion glasses throughout the day (8-10 hours/day) especially if you have an existing eye condition. You can also wear it whenever you are using your phone, computer or watching TV.
You can wear Ezekiel-ion outdoor too because it provides 100% UV protection. Nighttime? No problem. It is very lightly tinted so it will not affect your vision at night while driving. In fact, it will help prevent the eyes from getting dried and tired.
Check with your eye doctor when you feel there is a change in your vision. Don’t forget to write to us with your testimony 🙂
If you have dry eyes, eye strain, headaches, etc. that are caused by the blue light, you may see and feel the improvement immediately. Our lenses will protect you. If you have an eye problem that was developed over time, it will take a bit longer.
It will take time for your eyes to heal themselves. You can think of negative ions and far-infrared like how antioxidants help the body to boost its immune systems. The body builds up the immune system to fight diseases. Similarly, the negative ions and far-infrared do the same for the eyes and the body. The results will depend very much on:
- how often and how long you have been wearing Ezekiel-ion glasses.
- the type and severity of your existing eye condition.
- how long you have the eye problem.
- the strength of your immune system.
It will be different for everyone.
You can be very sure that the negative ions and far-infrared are working to help your blood circulation, oxygen level, sleep quality and immune system among other things. These have been backed by scientific studies over the past decades. You may not see the results very quickly but just like our eyesight didn’t degrade overnight, natural healing will also take time.
Ezekiel-ion glasses are not medical devices. It does not replace your current prescription or medication. It is the negative ions and the far-infrared from our glasses that help the eyes to heal themselves. One thing for certain is that Ezekiel-ion glasses are protecting and preventing the eyes from further damages caused by blue light, UV and EMF radiation while allowing the eyes to heal themselves with the help of negative ions and far-infrared. Your eyes should also feel more comfortable wearing them.
At this moment we do not offer Ezekiel-ion glasses with prescription lenses. But we are working on to provide in the near future.
Should you want to reap the benefits of the negative ions and far infrared, we recommend you contact your eye specialist and replace the Ezekiel-ion lenses with prescription lenses.
Don’t let your pre-tax health care expense dollars go to waste! Ezekiel-ion anti-blue light computer glasses should be eligible for FSA and HSA, because they can be worn for medical reasons, and can be viewed as an over-the-counter vision product.
However, we recommend following up with your vision care provider or company human resources to confirm if (a) they cover blue-light-blocking computer glasses and (b) if there is a minimum magnification required for reimbursement or (c) if they will cover with a doctor’s recommendation for the use of such glasses.
All our glasses come with microfiber cleaning cloth, carrying pouch, a protective hard case, and a gift box. The microfiber cloth should be sufficient for cleaning any smudges or dirt from the lenses. You can also use lotion-free soap/dishwashing liquid and cold water with a microfiber/lint-free towel.
We do not recommend using hot water or any chemical-based cleaners on the lenses. Do not leave your Ezekiel-ion glasses in the car (or enclosed space) for an extended period of time during the hot summer months. Heat and chemical reactions (from alcohol-based cleaning solutions, for example) can affect lens coatings.
Regular cleaning and always keeping them in the case will ensure a long-lasting pair of glasses.
Most of our styles are unisex designed to fit most shapes. We offer different sizes and styles. There are size dimensions listed in each style. Some smaller sizes are made for kids and are indicated in the description.
