How to protect your eyes from the digital blue light

How many times do you have to rub your eyes while binge-watching your favourite show on Netflix? Do you spend hours in front of your laptop, trying to meet the deadlines at work? Or are you a social butterfly, constantly on Whatsapp, Facebook and Instagram? 

No matter what the age, occupation or habits, a lot of us spend countless hours facing a digital screen; be it smartphones, tablets or laptops. But all of this comes with a cost. These digital screens emit blue light, which causes irreversible damage to our eyes over time. 

What exactly is blue light? 

What we refer to as light can be divided into two parts – visible and non-visible spectrum. Blue light is a specific wavelength of the visible spectrum, which is also found in the rays of the sun. 


Get to the bottom of the harmful light by looking in to the spectrum

Blue light isn’t harmful in itself, it’s the overexposure - that’s a concern. And let’s face it – most of us are overexposed to it today. It wasn’t a concern earlier when we weren’t hooked to digital devices – the sun would go down and our eyes would get a break. But now that we’re on our phones and laptops constantly, our eyes don’t get that much-needed break. Next time you have tired, achy or strained eyes after working on your computer for a long time, you’ll know what the reason is.

What’s worse is that over time, high exposure to blue light can cause macular degeneration. No need to open another tab to search what it exactly is, we’ll tell you right here. The macula is a small part of the retina, which helps in visual acuity. Macular degeneration is the deterioration of this area, affecting our vision. 

What's the solution? 

We understand that your screen time is precious. You just can’t avoid replying to that important email or uploading your new vacation images online. That’s the reason we offer Blue Lenses – they help block 99% of the blue light emitted by digital screens. You can choose Blue Lenses with ANY of our frames, with prescription or without. Blue light filter glasses are the need of the hour, and you couldn’t get them any sooner. Just select the “Blue Lenses” coating with any pair, and you’ll be on your way to beat the blues.
