Protect Your Vision From Harmful Blue Light

Computer screens, smartphones, tablets, fluorescent bulbs—blue light is all around, and the sun is actually the largest source of it. Some of it is helpful, like Beneficial Blue Light (which is blue turquoise and defined as 465-495 nm on the light spectrum), which helps regulate the sleep cycle, your mood, and cognitive performances.

However, long-term and continuous exposure to Harmful Blue Light (or blue-violet light) can contribute to long-term damage of your eyes. Those at highest risk are people with a family history or exhibiting signs of AMD, and working professionals, children, teens, and gamers.

Crizal Prevencia lenses reduce exposure to Harmful Blue Light while still allowing beneficial blue-turquoise light to pass through. Plus, they provide all the benefits of no-glare lenses. Help protect your eyes from blue-violet light with Crizal Prevencia lenses.

Crizal Prevencia helped to develop the first CLEAR lenses that selectively filter blue-violet light and contribute to reducing its potential harmful effects on the eye.

Keep your eyes Healthy: Wear Sunglasses

Most people know the sun’s rays are bad for our skin. But did you know they’re just as bad for our eyes?

Sunglasses are a great fashion accessory, but their most important job is to protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. Some of the sun’s effects on the eyes include:

  • Cataracts, a clouding of the eye’s lens that can blur vision. An estimated 20% of cases are caused by extended UV exposure.
  • Macular degeneration, resulting from damage to the retina that destroys central vision. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in the United States.
  • Pterygium, a tissue growth over the white part of the surface of the eye that can alter the curve of the eyeball, causing astigmatism.

When purchasing sunglasses, look for ones that block out 99 to 100% of both UVA and UVB radiation, so you can keep your vision sharp and eyes healthy.
