Well, maybe. Ultraviolet light is absorbed by the front section of the eye — as it should be — but high energy violet-blue rays (blue light) reach the retina, which is the subject of ongoing health research.
Our Blue Light Glasses block harmful UV-A, UV-B and blue light rays, providing protection in a clear lens.
Many people get tired eyes from sitting behind computers or on phones all day. Current research doesn’t prove that modern digital displays emit enough blue light to be harmful. But excess blue light does cause increased light scatter and mis-focus from screens, which can be easily improved.
Our Blue Light Filter, available for most optical glasses, blocks over 94% of short-wavelength blue light and reduces light scatter. The big benefit is that it increases comfort for people who look at digital screens a lot — all of us, basically.
Our Blue Light Filter is a unique patented product which works in conjunction with the night filter on your phone. Nevertheless, make sure you take regular breaks and don’t go to bed with your phone in your hand!
Be aware, the lenses do tend to have a slight tint. We recommend buying darker-coloured or metal frames if you want Blue Light Filter Glasses.
