BARNER: SLEEP & LIFE ENHANCING EYEWEAR
Barner is a new eyewear brand based in Barcelona, created by three young professionals, whose purpose is to raise awareness about the harmful effects of the blue light emitted by digital devices. Barner is launching its new project worldwide on the 17th of October through Kickstarter , the leading platform in Crowdfunding!
The idea of Barner was born in Google Dublin where Edu Gaya was working for 2 and a half years. After spending long hours in front of digital devices and feeling their negative effects, he started investigating about the harmful effects of Blue Light and all of the potential solutions.
Harmful overexposure to blue light has triggered a new digital sickness called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) . CVS affects 90% of the population that spends more than 3 hours a in front of digital devices a day; on average an individual spends up to 8 hours and 41 minutes per day in front of screens. The consequences of CVS vary from minor side-effects such as red and/or dry eyes to other more serious symptoms such as headaches, migraines, dizziness, blurred vision, sleep disruption (due to the reduced melatonin production), and may even cause damage to the retina which is often associated with more advanced ages.
To solve this problem Edu Gaya, Chris Birk and Ramon Perez have worked tirelessly to contact international leaders in the fields of optics, in order to design daily use eyewear that shields your eyes from the harmful blue light of digital devices, brings comfort to your eyes, reduces headaches and migraines, and increases melatonin production allowing you to fall asleep easier and have a more pleasant sleep ! Barner offers neutral lenses as well as prescription lenses.
By collaborating with one of the leading producers of lenses in the world, Barner ensures an end product with the best protection available. The Barner Team simultaneously worked along with the greatest Italian designers who are at the forefront of fashion. All frames are 100% handmade with premium Italian Mazzuchelli acetate, creating eyewear of exceptional quality and style.
