BlueGuard Lenses block a part of the blue light spectrum that could amplify symptoms of digital eye strain, including tired eyes, blurred vision, sleep disturbances and dry or irritated eyes. The positive properties of blue light, ranging from about 455 to 500 nm, remain unaffected.
How does blue light affect your eyes?
Good news and bad news! The good news is that some HEV blue light is actually essential for our daily health and increases our energy levels. Natural exposure to daylight helps our bodies determine night from day, and thus, when it’s time to sleep.
The bad news is, natural light has its benefits, but artificial light in the form of LED light bulbs, computer monitors, tablets and smart phones emit significant amounts of HEV blue light. This has been a cause for concern among health care professionals about the long-term effects of blue light on overall eyecare health.
