BluTech Lenses are the hottest eye care accessory to hit the market since sunglasses. BluTech is the only lens material designed to protect the retina from high energy visible light. While most people slather on sunscreen when going outdoors, most people don’t consider protecting their eyes from harmful blue light rays.
The effects of exposure to UVA and UVB rays is immense – ranging from skin damage to skin cancer. However, most people don’t understand that visible light rays also pose health concerns. UV light is absorbed by the skin, which is why it can lead to skin cancer. However, high energy visible blue light goes a step further and penetrates the eye, ultimately reaching the retina. These rays can then irritate inflamed tissue, which is common among people suffering from macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Additionally, HEV light increases glare, and now reports show that overexposure to blue light can also alter sleeping patterns.
BluTech is an excellent solution to protecting the eyes, as the protective lens material is made using a unique substrate, 3-Hydroxykynurenine, a naturally occurring pigment in the ocular lens, and a small amount of melanin. This combination affords patient durable eyewear that reduces glare and provides normal color perception and offers protection from harmful blue light rays.
