We offer variety of customized lenses amongst those one of our favorite is blue blocker lenses!
Blue Blocker Lenses
Blue-light blocking lenses are designed to filter out blue light frequencies from the visible light spectrum and in some cases UV light, from getting through. Although nothing really blocks 100% of blue light it helps on the long run since you don’t actually need to block it fully. Blue blocker lenses also helps reduce eye strain while providing the benefit of no-glare, scratch resistant, dust and water repellent. We take care of our customers by providing the best lenses available to ensure clarity of vision with the use of blue light blockers with or without prescriptions.
What is Blue Light?
Blue light is also known as high energy visible (HEV) light with short wavelengths which means it produces higher amounts of energy. Between sunlight, indoor lighting, and most digital screens, blue-violet light surrounds us every day. Computer screens, smartphones, tablets, florescent bulbs, blue light is all around, and the sun is actually the largest source of it. Blue light is a range of light between 400-490nm that contains the highest amount of energy with the shortest wavelength in the visible light spectrum. Daily exposure to blue light may cause digital eye strain.
What is Digital Eye Strain?
Digital eye strain is the discomfort caused by two or more hours of digital device use. With an increase in digital technology, the average American spends seven hours a day on the computer. Studies show a variety of electronic devices usage simultaneously or when switching from one device to another causes physical discomfort. According to “The Vision Council” about 80 percent of American adults report using digital devices and experiencing symptoms of digital eye strain.
The American Optometric Association is working to educate everyone about how to avoid digital eye strain also known as computer vision syndrome. Follow the 20-20-20 rule (take a 20 second break to view something 20 feet away every 20 minutes). Impact on adults includes eye strain, dry eyes, headaches, blurred vision, and neck and shoulder pain. For kids in addition to those impacts same as adults it can also reduce attention span, poor behavior and irritability.
