Blue Light, Monitors, and Your Eyes

Retina Shield Blue Light Protection

If you are on your digital device more than 4 hours per day, you need to protect your eyes from  blue light. This short wavelength and high energy visible light can affect circadian rhythms, which affects sleep and can cause eye strain. There is also mounting evidence that over-exposure to blue light can lead to retina disease.

Consider your options:

          * Screen blockers, especially on your mobile phone

          * Protection in your lenses – even if you don’t wear prescription glasses

          * Reducing your digital device use

    You may have seen people wearing glasses with a yellow or purple tint. While these are marketed as protecting your eyes from blue light, they are only partially effective. Our Retina Shield blocks virtually all blue light.

We can test your current lenses for blue light protection at no charge.
