People are exposed to light every day, which includes blue light rays as part of the spectrum. Although blue-turquoise light helps in your overall well-being by helping with basic mental functioning and the circadian rhythm, exposure to harmful blue-violet light may damage your eyes. The damage is believed to be cumulative, appearing later in life in the form of macular degeneration. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a risk that we face with exposure to blue-violet light. Retinal cells of the eye are quite vulnerable to damage caused by the oxidization process as a result of blue-violet light exposure. This damage can be irreversible in the retina. The elderly and children especially appear at the risk of retinal damage from HEV radiation.
Satin Blue features 8 protective features that wearers will benefit from every day.
● Blue-violet light protection
● Better durability
● Protection from UV rays
● Anti-static properties
● Smudge resistance
● Water repellence
● Scratch resistance
Technology has become an integral part of our lives, and we spend long hours on digital devices like laptops, tablets & smart phones. Prolonged use of these devices may result in computer vision syndrome (CVS), otherwise known as digital eye strain. Symptoms of digital eye strain can include:
● Dry eyes
● Blurry vision
● Neck, shoulder, or back pain
● Tiredness or fatigueIncreased light sensitivity
We are becoming more and more reliant on digital devices and screens all the time. People are using tablets, mobile phones and screens more than ever before both in and out of work. This is providing new challenges for the human eye. Extended screen use can be.
Satin Blue is the perfect coating for wearers who spend a long time using screens and want clear and comfortable vision. Wearers who spend a lot of time using screens at work and during their home life are more at risk of digital eye strain. Satin Blue can help in providing more comfort for the wearers while they carry out their activities using these screens. For optimum protection against blue-violet light, we recommend dispensing Satin Blue coated Blumax lenses. For more information on Blumax please click here.
Satin Blue uses a unique anti-reflective formula that reduces 20% of the blue-violet light entering the eye. The treatment does not alter colour perception, but can improve contrast for wearers and improve their visual comfort when using screens.
Satin Blue can help to reduce eye fatigue and computer vision syndrome, as well as reduce the risk of AMD and other retinal damages by filtering blue-violet light, allowing blue-turquoise light to pass through the lens and enter the eye. Blue light is comprised of light rays from 380 and 500nm. It is important to distinguish between the two different types of blue light; blue-violet and blue-turquoise. Satin Blue coating is able to effect only the blue-violet portion of the blue light spectrum, making it an ideal coating for wearers looking for protection from these light rays.
