Did you know that light at night might be bad for your health? – especially the blue wavelengths emitted from electronics and fluorescent light bulbs (which is a harmful artificial blue light).

“At night, light throws the body’s biological clock—the circadian rhythm—out of whack. Sleep suffers. Worse, research shows that it may contribute to the causation of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.”The Harvard Health Letter

What can you do and how does this relate to eyewear? We suggest trying our blue blocking lens options (Of course we have options to incorporate any other needs you might have in a lens – And we can use these advancements in reading glasses or even a non prescription lenses.) For example, the Essilor Smart Blue Filter can be combined with the Crizal Prevencia to receive the ultimate protection from UV and Harmful Blue Light.

Essilor has a mission to improve lives by improving sight.  Here is a short video by them to help you understand blue light and discusses one option we offer to combat the effects of blue light.
