Lenses for Harmful Blue Light Protection

WHAT IS HARMFUL
BLUE LIGHT?

It’s part of the visible light spectrum, which comes from both the sun and artificial light sources like digital screens, LED bulbs, and fluorescent lights.

THE NEED FOR HARMFUL BLUE LIGHT PROTECTION

  • Children’s crystalline lenses let through 6x more harmful radiation than adults.1
  • 30% of adults spend 9+ hours on a digital device every day.2
  • LED is estimated to account for 84% of all artificial lighting sources by 2020.3

THE RISKS OF HARMFUL BLUE LIGHT EXPOSURE

SHORT-TERM RISKS
Exposure to harmful blue light may cause eyestrain, headaches, and fatigue.

LONG-TERM RISKS
Exposure to the sun’s UV and blue-violet light is a contributing factor to eye diseases such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, two of the leading causes of vision loss in adults over the age of 50. Thanks to its exclusive technologies, Varilux progressive lenses appear clear throughout, unlike the distracting lines of a bifocal lens.
