What are Diffraction Glasses?
Diffraction Glasses are the new essential visual accessory designed to enhance raves, concerts, festivals and firework shows.
'Diffraction' is the more common technical term used for these glasses, however, we think that name is too boring to keep repeating, so we call them 'Trippy' Glasses!
Trippy Glasses help the wearer feel further connected with the event by enhancing the light shows. The person wearing the glasses finds themselves lost in reality as they are surrounded by beautiful lights. Because of this, our glasses have been rapidly gaining popularity in the live music scene. They are still unheard of by some, but not for long.
How do Diffraction Glasses work?
At first glance, our trippy glasses look like any regular pair of fashionable sunglasses. However, look a little closer and you will notice that these glasses are equipped with special laser etched lenses/film which allows the light to diffract into stunning visual effects.
'Diffraction' is defined as the process by which a beam of light or other systems of waves is spread out as a result of passing through a narrow aperture, typically accompanied by interference between the waveforms produced.
This is the main principle behind what gives Trippy Glasses their visual sensation. White light will show the widest array of colours, whereas looking at a blue light, for example, will show its component colours.
What precautions should I take?
Diffraction Glasses and the Kaleidoscope effects can give off extremely strong visuals. It is recommended that the customer
- Wear if they have any neurological disorder such as epilepsy
- Wear GloFX glasses while driving- Wear GloFX glasses when operating machinery- Run while wearing GloFX glasses- Look directly at the sun, most GloFX glasses are not UV Protected.
The experience is fun and we aim to keep it this way, we want to ensure customers get the optimum effects, whilst using the product appropriately to avoid any damage to the eyes or self!
We advise taking extra precaution if the customer has a history of epilepsy or other light triggering conditions.

Are all of your Sunglasses UV Protected?
Yes, all of our sunglasses are 100% UV400 Protected and are tested by our manufacturer before dispatch. Thus, our sunglasses offer the same UV protection as the expensive designer brands.
Our classification is further divided into 3 categories; most of our glasses are category 3 which can be used in situations with strong sunlight. We also have some sunglasses that are category 2, these are the lighter coloured lenses which are unable to be produced as category 3. Although category 2 is not as strong as category 3 the sunglasses still offer significant UV protection.
