Blue-Light Blocker and Relax Technology
Blue light is everywhere around us. Cell phones, computers, televisions, and many other portable devices emit blue light. Blue light has been found to be associated with eye strain, tiredness, and dry eyes. Blue light is naturally found outside from the atmosphere; however, we are now exposed to much more blue light due to the rise of technology in our current day and age. Most ophthalmologists and optometrists recommend patients to utilize blue light blockers regardless of their current visual acuity.
Here at Bellevue Eye Specialists, we believe that by minimizing the blue light that our patients are exposed to is a top priority. While most opticals now offer some form of blue light blocker for their customers, blue light blocking efficiency differs from one location to another. Typically, most opticals only offer a blue light blocker coating to their customers. On average, blue light lens coatings only block out about 30%-40% of blue light. With blue light blocker/AR coatings, coatings usually last only for about 2 years. At Bellevue Eye Specialists, we offer a blue light lens blocker that is directly embedded into the lens which can last for many years with the proper lens care. Additionally, our blue light blocker embedded into our lens blocks out more than 90% of blue light!
At Bellevue Eye Specialists, we believe in making our products as accessible as possible for our patients. Therefore, our blue light blockers embedded in our lens are offered in discounted packages. These lens packages save our customers money without having to compromise quality. In addition to setting up our patients with prescription glasses with blue light blocker lens, we offer pre-made non-prescription glasses with the newest technology, too, at similar affordable prices.
At Bellevue Eye Specialists, we believe that all of our customers deserve a quality customer experience. If you have any additional questions or inquiries regarding blue light blockers, feel free to give us a call or stop by to test out our blue light blocker lens.
