Between using a computer for work, watching videos on your tablet, and scrolling through social media on your phone, it is nearly impossible to avoid screens. While these high-tech gadgets provide hours of entertainment, they may be harmful. These screens emit blue light, which can cause long-term damage to your eyes. However, new smart-technology like our Blue495 Anti-Glare coating can prevent the harmful effects of blue light.

What is Blue Light?

When the sun emits light onto earth, it sends a spectrum of colors that all have different wavelengths. Remember ROYGBIV? Blue light is on the end of the spectrum, which means it has a very short wavelength, producing a higher amount of energy. Blue light isn’t harmful in small doses, but according to researchers, over-exposure can cause serious damage to your eyes.

Long-Term Eye Damage

There are two ways blue light can harm your eyes. The first is called digital eye strain. This happens when people look at screens with blue light for over two hours a day. Digital eye strain can lead to headaches and dry eye. Thankfully this is a temporary damage that can be prevented with Blue495 Anti-Glare coating. Our innovative lenses block blue light, so you can look all day without the headache.

Blue light can also cause long-term retina damage. The retina is a very thin, multi-layered tissue that covers your inner eyeball. Overtime, blue light damages and destroys cells in your retina, eventually leading to age-related macular degeneration, or AMD. AMD is the leading cause of vision loss for Americans age 50 and over.

Prevention is Key

Thankfully, there is a way to keep enjoying your screen time, without the fear of eye damage. Researchers have discovered a technology that protects your eyes from blue light. Blue495 Anti-Glare Coating features state-of-the-art nano technology that blocks the harmful blue rays. The advanced coating can be added to most styles of glasses, so you can keep your eyes safe while still rocking your favorite style.

In the digital age, it’s impossible to simply avoid screen time. Kids use tablets in school, adults use computers all day long at work, and after a long day, most of us want to be able to play our favorite games or watch movies. With Blue495 Anti-Glare coating you don’t have to change your habits. These affordable lenses will protect your eyes, without sacrificing your style.
