Blue Light Protection for the Eyes

Life in the modern world has us under constant exposure to artificial light from a broad range of sources, including computer monitors, tablet and smartphone screens, televisions, and more. The key cause for concern stems from the HEV (High Energy Visible) light present, also referred to as blue light. These Blue Light lenses have an innovative coating designed to address the effects of long-term exposure to this specific wavelength of UV. Deflecting up to five times as much blue light as traditional lens coatings, it significantly improves light transmission and contrast, reduces eye strain and fatigue, and ultimately helps maintain visual health.

Blue Light is naturally present in sunlight, but it is also emitted by various artificial sources, including digital screens (like computers, smartphones, and tablets), LED and fluorescent lights, and electronic devices. When using these devices at night it can be more challenging to fall asleep due to interference with the body's natural circadian rhythm and melatonin production. There is potential to improve your ability to sleep with the use of a Blue Filter lens.

UV Protection

UV Protection

Prolonged exposure to the UV (ultraviolet) and blue light emitted by the sun and by artificial sources is known to have negative impacts on our eyes and overall well-being. Studies have shown the benefits of taking precautions to protect our eyes from harmful UV and blue light. At Dresden, our coating protects against sunlight and electronic UV making it useful to wear all day long.

Considering adding a blue light filter to your glasses but unsure on where to start your research? We’ve got you covered with all the info on what blue light is, does and how you can benefit from adding blue light blocking to your next pair of specs.

What is blue light?

Blue light is a type of visible light that has a short wavelength and emits higher energy compared to other colours in the visible light spectrum. It is naturally present in sunlight, but it is also emitted by various artificial sources, including digital screens (like computers, smartphones, and tablets), LED and fluorescent lights, and electronic devices. While exposure to natural blue light during the day is beneficial for regulating the circadian rhythm and boosting alertness - excessive and prolonged exposure to artificial blue light, especially at night, can have some drawbacks.

It's important to note that while blue light exposure can have these effects, the research on its long-term impact is still evolving. To reduce the potential harm from blue light, individuals can use blue light filters on digital devices, adjust screen settings, and wear blue light blocking glasses, especially in the evening. Taking regular breaks, practicing the 20-20-20 rule (looking at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes), and ensuring proper lighting in the workspace can also help reduce dry eye and fatigue associated with prolonged screen time.

What are blue light glasses?

Blue light glasses, also known as blue light blocking or computer glasses, are designed to reduce the potential negative effects of blue light exposure from digital screens, artificial lighting, and other sources.

Here are some of the common features and benefits associated with blue light glasses:

1. Blue Light Filtering:

Blue light glasses have special coatings on the lenses that filter or block a portion of the blue light spectrum - specifically the high-energy, short-wavelength blue light. This specific type of light is typically found in the screens of our mobile devices, computer screens and televisions.

2. Reduced Potential for Eye Strain:

One primary benefit of blue light glasses is the reduction of eye strain and discomfort when using digital devices for long periods. This can help alleviate symptoms of dry eyes, blurred vision, and headaches caused by prolonged screen time.

3. Improved Sleep Quality:

Exposure to blue light, especially in the evening can interfere with the body's natural circadian rhythm and suppress the production of melatonin, making it difficult to fall asleep. Luckily, blue light glasses can reduce night time blue light exposure, potentially improving sleep quality.

4. Anti-Reflective Coatings:

At Dresden all blue light glasses also come with anti-reflective coatings that minimise glare and reflections on the lenses, further improving visual comfort.

5. Prescription Options:

If you wear prescription glasses, you can get blue light coating added to your prescription lenses, allowing you to address both vision correction and blue light protection in one pair of glasses.

6. UV Protection:

Our blue light glasses also provide protection against harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, which can be beneficial when spending time outdoors.

7. Lightweight and Comfortable:

Dresden frames weigh less than 25 grams which is great for blue light glasses as they are frequently worn when you’re doing tasks where extended wear is essential. This makes them suitable for office work, gaming, or any activity involving screens.

While blue light glasses can be helpful in reducing eye strain and potentially improving sleep quality, their effectiveness may vary from person to person. If you have specific concerns about your eye health or experience severe eye discomfort, it's advisable to consult an eye care professional for a comprehensive eye examination and personalised recommendations.
