Advanced blue light lens technology
Prolonged exposure to high energy blue light can cause long term damage to your eyes with symptoms such as eye strain and headaches. Exposure to artificial blue light during naturally dark periods from computers television, smart phones or artificial lighting also affects the body’s production of a hormone called melatonin, which can disrupt natural sleeping patterns.
Blue Protect lenses shield your eyes by filtering out harmful blue light without distorting colour vision or disturbing positive light wavelengths Light entering the eye is more efficiently managed to lead to less eye strain and more comfortable viewing over longer periods of time.
What is Blue Light?
Blue light is part of the visible light spectrum, it has the shortest wavelength meaning it produces the highest amount of energy. Blue light can cause damage to the eyes much like ultraviolet rays, and constant exposure can lead to eye strain, eye fatigue and headaches. Exposure to artificial blue light during naturally dark periods from computers, television, smart phones or artificial lighting also affects the body’s production of a hormone called melatonin, which can disrupt natural sleeping patterns.
People are exposed to light every day, which includes blue light rays as part of the spectrum. Whilst blue light helps in your overall well-being by helping with basic mental functioning, exposure to harmful blue violet can damage your eyes. Experts have been aware for some time that UV light can potentially damage biological tissue, such as our skin and eyes. To prevent this, we wear sunglasses and use sun cream, blue light also has the potential to cause damage to our eyes so why not protect our eyes from these harmful blue light rays as well?
Why should I have
Blue Protect Lenses?
Technology has become an integral part of our lives, we are becoming more and more reliant on digital devices and screens all the time, and we spend long hours on digital devices like laptops, tablets & smartphones more than ever before, both in and out of work.
Prolonged use of these devices may result in computer vision syndrome (CVS), otherwise known as digital eye strain.
Who are Blue Protect
Lenses suitable for?
Anyone who spends a significant part of their day looking at digital screens may want to consider blue light blocking lenses, especially if they’re experiencing sleep problems or other symptoms of digital eye strain.
You can wear blue light-blocking glasses all day and doing so will not negatively affect you or your eyes. In fact, wearing blue light glasses all day will actually help protect your eyes and ensure that you are keeping them safe from harmful blue light exposure.
Blue light blocking coating can be added to your prescription lenses regardless of what lens type you require. We can add Blue Protect to your single vision, occupational, varifocal or bifocal lenses.
Why have non-prescription
Blue Protect lenses in glasses?
Anyone can benefit from blue-light blocking lenses regardless of age, the daily hours spent in front of technology, or even the requirements of each individuals’ profession.
You can protect your childs eyes from harmful blue light by having Blue Protect non-prescription lenses fitted to a pair of glasses they like and feel comfortable wearing, perhaps even as a fashion statement.
What with home-schooling in the current climate and schools becoming more and more advanced in using technology to enhance teaching and learning it means children are exposed to a phenomenal amount of blue light in their day to day lives and in addition to this the popularity of such things as YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, it seems every child spends long periods looking at a screen of some kind.
Our blue light lenses will protect children’s eyes by filtering out all the harmful blue light they are being regularly exposed to, boosting energy and concentration when needed at school or when at home, whilst helping them to sleep better at night. It may also be worth considering non-prescription blue light blocking lenses so that even non-glasses wearing children can be protected from the onslaught of blue light our modern-day lives create and thus protect themselves from blue light related eye issues in the future.
