TechShield Blue Lenses: Block Blue Light & Reduce Eye Strain

TechShield™ Blue Lenses Make Screen Time Easy on Your Eyes

Posted Jul 27, 2017 | Eye Health

The average person spends around eleven hours a day on digital devices. Crazy, right?! When you mix together mobile usage, computer time, TV allotment, and the use of other electronics, it adds up.

Whether it’s for work or play, statistics show that 69% of our day is infused with technology, from the time we wake up to the time we fall asleep. Over 70% of the population ages three and up use technology; schools are implementing the use of electronic devices in the classroom, and tablets are becoming a popular play item among children.

Staring at light-emitting screens all day must have some effect on our bodies, right? The wear and tear that it puts on our eyes, while usually unmentioned, is important to note.

Blue light is all around us. It’s the light emitted from some digital devices, LED lights, and even the sun. Today, we’re going to show you how to reduce your blue light exposure with TechShield™ Blue.

What is blue light?

Blue light, aka high energy visible light, has a short wave length, making it super high in energy (don’t worry; you won’t be quizzed on this later). Our exposure to blue light can cause eye discomfort, but you can give your eyes a break by enhancing your glasses with a blue light-reducing lens coating like TechShield Blue.

So, why do I want to reduce blue light exposure?

As blue light passes through the lens of your eye, it scatters. Your eyes can’t focus on this scattered light, so your eyes have to work extra hard to compensate. All that extra work can lead to eye strain and fatigue.

How can I combat eye strain and fatigue?

Avoiding blue light is impossible, but you can reduce your exposure with TechShield Blue. TechShield Blue is a next-generation anti-reflective lens coating that absorbs and deflects blue light from your eyes, allowing you to combat eye strain while working, learning, playing, or simply staying connected.
