What is a Blue Light Blocking Lens?

The visible blue light emitted by computer screens, televisions, phones, and other artificial light sources (as well as the sun) is a high-energy source of radiation with a very short wavelength. In fact, it is one of the highest energy sources of radiation that we regularly encounter. These properties make it a serious threat to the health of your eyes, as well as your overall well-being. If you work on a computer or spend significant amounts of time looking at your phone, watching TV, or browsing the internet, the use of blue light blocking lenses is one of the most important investments you can make to protect your vision. Wise Eyes Optical offers these lenses as an option. They are specially coated to reflect and minimize the damaging wavelengths of blue light while allowing the beneficial portion of blue light to reach you.

How Can Blue Light Blocking Lenses Help Relieve Digital Eye Strain?

When you wear blue light blocking lenses, you may experience significant reduction in many of the symptoms associated with overexposure to the visible spectrum of high energy blue light radiation, including:

  • Eyestrain
  • Dry Eyes
  • Sticky Eyes
  • Tearing
  • Gritty Feeling

By protecting the cornea from the toxic effects of blue light, painful eye strain, damage, vision loss, and many of the other harmful long-term effects of this high energy radiation can be avoided. In addition, many who wear blue light blocking lenses enjoy optimal vision and improved sight in low contrast situations. Blue light blocking lenses are ideal for use in computer glasses, sunglasses, and general purpose eyeglasses. Regular use of blue light blocking lenses may help prevent the development of retinal damage and macular degeneration, as well as boost situational awareness and elevate the mood.

Blue Light Blocking Lenses for Computer and Extensive Screen Users

Numerous research studies* seem to indicate that overexposure to blue light can disrupt the body’s circadian rhythm, alter hormone levels, and may be indicated in the development of breast and prostate cancer, diabetes, heart disease, depression, sleep deprivation, and obesity. Digital eyestrain syndrome, headaches, blurry vision, and pain are some side effects directly related to repeated exposure to high-intensity blue light. With most of us using electronic devices regularly throughout the day for work as well as during our leisure time, we can avoid many of the discomforts and potential health effects of blue light by adding blue light blocking lenses to our preventive health repertoire. Blue light blocking lenses from Wise Eyes Optical may be the ideal solution for your new eyeglasses.
