what are the health benefits of focus anti-glare eyeglasses?
Recently there are numerous reports and information coming to light about the effect of Blue Light sources on our eye health. Excess blue light can cause numerous eye health issues, and in addition cause difficulty with getting quality sleep. Many companies are offering glare blocking guards for tablets and computer screens, and optical companies are offering anti-glare coatings and lenses for prescription that also help filter out the excess blue light. Here at Envision Eyewear we are offering our new collection of FOCUS ANTI-GLARE OPTICS which encompass several eyewear products that are non-prescription reading glasses, OTG Over-The-Glass eyewear that fits over prescription eyewear, and last but not least what we call "indoor eyewear" (also known as computer glasses) for using while watching LED TV's, or using tablets, computers, cell phones. These are great for using in your office under fluorescent lighting, or in your home where CFL bulbs are now being installed.
UV light begins at 400 nanometers and above (smaller wavelength number = faster wavelength and more dangerous). Blue light is very intense and just inside our visible spectrum. This chart shows how LED, CFL & Fluorescent sources deliver a heavy dose of blue light.
This chart illustrates how blue light rich LED light sources are nearly identical to our Circadian Rhythm sensitivity. This means that excess blue light during the evening hours can make it difficult to fall asleep, and in some cases have a very negative affect on sleep cycles.
