You know the pose: hunched over a smart phone, e-reader, computer, desk, tablet or game console.
Thanks to ever-present electronics, you are exposed to an increasing level of harmful blue light on a daily basis. Computer monitors, laptops, tablets, smart phones, LED TVs — even compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs emit it. Cumulative exposure to blue light can suppress melatonin and disrupt your natural sleep cycle. It may also lead to eye strain, headaches, blurred vision and macular damage. The good news is that you don’t have to eliminate your devices — excellent, affordable protection from blue light is available.
One of the solutions to this modern problem is a lens filter called BluTech. With BluTech lenses, blue light filtered via a patented combination of Ocular Lens Pigment and melanin. No other near-clear indoor lens filters more of the blue light known to be associated with blur, glare, macular damage and sleep cycle disruption without distorting color. BluTech Lenses are clinically proven to improve contrast, clarity, comfort, and night vision. And, most surprising of all, they may also improve the quality of your sleep.
What does that mean for you? It means if you have a job where you stare at a computer all day, you can have more relaxed, comfortable vision. If you are student, you can study without having eye strain and discomfort. If you are prone to headaches and migraines, you can reduce them. If you have trouble falling or staying asleep throughout the night, you may enjoy a better nights’ sleep – which will improve your everyday energy and functions. If you have a family history of Macular Degeneration and have seen first-hand the effects of vision loss, you can protect yourself so you can keep your vision for longer. If you have children and they have mild behavioral issues (like ADHD), sleep issues, or headaches, you can alleviate their symptoms and increase their chances for learning and success.
