In the light spectrum, blue light (around 500nm), has the most harmful effects on the eyes. This blue light is emitted from digital devices. Let’s face it, we live in a world of digital technology. Kids want to watch Peppa Pig on their tablets, Teenagers want to watch YouTube on their smartphones, Adults have to meet their deadlines using their laptops, Grandparents want to play Candy Crush on their computers and of course, Grandmas can’t miss out on their daily soapies on TV. Whatever your age, we all rely on digital technology in our daily lifestyles.
Blue control is a coating that is baked onto your lenses. It drastically reduces digital glare and improves on eye strain. It also blocks out 100% of harmful UV light.
Ever felt “blinded”by the oncoming headlights at night? Blue control lenses also reduce glare from the LED’s of cars headlights. That light can be so uncomfortable, you have to think about what was in that glass of wine you had the night before.
Do you struggle to sleep at night? Blue light from digital devices affect the release of melatonin in our eyes and this affects our sleeping patterns. Blue control coatings ultimately improve your sleeping patterns.
