Blue Light Blocking Lenses
Shield your eyes from harmful blue light
What is Blue Light?
Blue light is a harmful portion of light emitted by digital screens. According to the Paris Vision Institute, blue-violet light within the 415-455nm wavelength is potentially more harmful at the retinal level, as it can cause oxidative stress. Evidence shows blue light could cause macular degeneration later in life; the accumulation in the retina of the age pigment lipofuscin can start as early as in childhood, speeding up the aging process in our eyes.
How Does Blue Light Affect Us?
Being continuously connected to digital technologies could contribute to headaches, sore or tired eyes, and stiff necks – all symptoms of digital eyestrain. Spending the majority of our waking hours in front of device screens puts our eyes through a lot of wear and tear. At the same time, HEV light from our computers, phones and tablets doesn’t just cause our eyes to work harder, it could also put them at risk of aging faster.
