BLUE LIGHT DEFENSE

We are excited to now be able to offer BLUE LIGHT DEFENSE lenses to our patients!

Blue Light Damage to the eye is becoming more and more prevalent since the majority of us are using digital devices in our daily routines. Studies indicate that blue light  may increase our risk of macular degeneration. Prolonged exposure of blue light from work on computers, smartphones and tablets increases eye strain, fatigue and dry eye symptomatology.  One of the main culprits for computer vision syndrome (CVS) is prolonged use of a computer that emits frequencies of blue light.   Gamers and students  are notorious for  having very poor sleep habits and excessive eye strain .

Many lens companies are now selling blue light protection lenses that filter this blue light. All blue filtering lenses are not the same. Some lenses have certain tints that are used to absorb some of this blue light. These lenses can be yellow, orange, or purple in color. Some companies are using a coating to absorb the blue light and some are actually putting this filtering technology into the lens monomer so it is throughout the entire lens. Many lens companies are filtering only a small percent of the harmful blue light and some are filtering close to 100% of specific frequencies of the blue-violet light.
