BLUE BLOCK LENSES
BLUE-LIGHT BLOCKING TECHNOLOGY
Blue light can be harmful because it is the highest energy wavelength of visible light, and it is able to penetrate all the way to the back of your eyes.
Studies have shown that overexposure to blue light could contribute to serious eye conditions later in life such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which
could lead to blindness.
As the world gets more digital and we are getting more exposed to blue light, International Optica’s blue block lenses will filter potentially harmful blue light and protect your eyes in the present and for the future.
Children are especially at risk when it comes to the negative effects of blue light exposure. Children's eyes are still developing, and they don’t yet have the protective pigments in their eyes to help filter out some of this harmful blue light.
Late-night screen time throws off sleep patterns, because blue light affects melatonin (the sleep hormone) levels.
Decreased light at night signals the body to generate sleep hormones. Blue light disrupts these signals, and less melatonin is generated.
For some, blue light filtering glasses are a great way to combat the eye strain and sleeplessness that come with excessive screen time.
Whether you are working from home, watching your favourite Netflix show or just chilling on social media make sure your eyes are protected with our screen protection lenses.
