Beating the Blues…
We are all aware of the importance of protecting our eyes from Ultraviolet light year round. Quality wraparound sunglasses and a broad brimmed hat are the best defenses during outdoor activities. But did you know that there are equally harmful wavelengths in the visible spectrum that we are increasingly exposed to on a daily basis? Blue-light is scientifically recognized as harmful to the retina. LEDs used in smart phones, tablets and computer screens emit up to 30% blue light. The 415 to 455 nm range represents the greatest phototoxic risk to the health of important retinal cells in the macula and damage is likely due to cumulative exposure.
We now offer a complete line of ophthalmic lenses that goes beyond optical correction! Our selective photo-protective ophthalmic lenses filter out UV radiation and significantly attenuate harmful blue-violet light while permitting beneficial blue-turquoise light (responsible for mood, memory, wakefulness) to pass.
We look forward to providing you with spectacle lens technology that addresses all of your visual and ocular health needs.
