    With the new Pure 2 EyeGuard Blue Light Glass Screen Protector, accessory company BodyGuardz is selling a screen protector that promises extreme impact shock absorption, along with the added bonus of blue light filtering for your eyes.

    For those unaware, many people face overexposure to blue light from displays used in their jobs, which has been shown to result in the damage of light-sensitive cells in the eye's retina and other potentially harmful effects. In a day-to-day sense, this means that computer-heavy work can cause eye strain, fatigue, headaches, dry eyes, blurry vision, and more.

    While blue light isn't only found in modern displays, new technologies and companies are emerging to combat eye strain that results from ongoing exposure to blue light from digital screens, including BodyGuardz's Pure 2 EyeGuard Screen Protector.

    The BodyGuardz accessory promises to filter out up to 43 percent of blue light in an effort to protect your eyes from digital eye strain, while simultaneously safeguarding an iPhone from dangerous drops. The Pure 2 EyeGuard is sized to fit iPhone X and iPhone XS, with an edge-to-edge design that's also compatible with iPhone cases.

    Installation Process

    Installing a screen protector can be a daunting process, but BodyGuardz includes a few helpful accessories that make the Pure 2 EyeGuard a bit less of a hassle to place on an iPhone. There is a plastic guide to ensure the screen protector goes on straight, dust removal stickers, a clean wipe, dust wipe, and the screen protector itself.

    [​IMG]

    To start, I placed the plastic guide around the edges of my iPhone X. This acts as a sort of border for your installation process, and definitely makes getting the perfect angle on your iPhone much easier. Next I wiped my iPhone's screen with the included wet wipe, then finished off with the soft dust wipe cloth.

    I continued by peeling off the screen protector from the plastic sheet it came on, and carefully placing it on top of my iPhone. As it fell into the plastic tray, the edges of the protector lined up easily with the small black bezels of my iPhone X and the top notch. BodyGuardz then guides you to press firmly from the middle of the protector and smooth it outwards.

    The company warns that whatever bubbles you see will disappear within 24 to 48 hours, and over the course of my testing I did see fewer bubbles. When I initially installed, however, I just pressed firmly with my thumb to smooth the screen protector out and managed to have no large or unsightly bubbles on the display.

    The packaging is deceptive, I would have assumed the protector wasn’t notched.

    A clear message to all XS owners complaining about yellow tinted screens.

    I can assume that the blue light filter affected Face ID and they couldn't figure out a way to either not filter the notch. I was a diehard Patchworks ITG user (thanks Mobile Reviews, Eh), but they've never made a full coverage screen protector for the X/XS.

    I've been using Spigen's glas.TR Slims ever since. Not quite as buttery smooth as the Patchworks ITG's, but their fit is impeccable. I have yet to run into a case that doesn't work with them. And when you use a Spigen case (which covers more of the glass than Apple's as well as the bottom), you really can't tell one is installed.

    I am concerned though; I've never run into an issue where a screen protector has affected my typing, no matter how fresh it is. So I'd assume that for our reviewer here, the screen protector wasn't installed properly, wasn't fully 'set,' or that that blue light filter was interfering with the touch sensitivity.

    Don't iPhones have a blue light filter in built in to settings? My galaxy has one and is set to come on/off at sunset to sunrise

    I believe that that is a picture Dan took and showed in a recent video. Ask him. He may share it with you.

    Question: I assume the black gasket is to cover the rounded surface around the iPhone so it sits flush with a case... have you tried to use it long term without a case?

    I had some older one that work maybe a week then the black rubber edge gets messed up due to lint in my pocket or something and the screen protector is peeling off.



    (Why does the first picture above have a screen protector with a crack on the bottom....)

    The blue light causes macular degeneration, but you need to get it in doses supplied by the Sun, not by your device.

    Please post your source for this statement:”which has been shown to result in the damage of light-sensitive cells in the eye's retina and other potentially harmful effects”

    I have never heard of “blue light” of normal intensity in the visual spectrum of causing more or less damage in the eye over any other particular color in the visual spectrum.

    Exactly, but it might interfere with you getting asleep, although I really think that's also not as bad as they say.

    Believe it or not, there actually are different grades of glass, and they cost different amounts to manufacture.
