What Is Blue Light?
Sunlight is composed of red, orange, yellow, green, and blue rays of varying energy levels and wavelengths. The short wavelength of blue light is 380 to 500 nm and has a relatively high energy level. Research has shown that when blue light reaches a wavelength between 415-455 nm, they are very hazardous to eye health as they pass through the retina.
What Are The Benefits Of Blue Light And The Negatives?
While blue light waves can be harmful to your eye health, they aren’t all negative. Some blue light exposure is necessary for improving your memory and mood, regulating your sleep cycle, and maintaining healthy eye development for children.
On the other hand, excessive exposure to blue light could pose a threat to your overall health, including the possibility of causing digital eye strain or damage to the retina.
What’s zFORT™ ?
This technology prevents certain blue light in the 380-500 nm range from entering and damaging your eyes.
The chances are that you spend enough time in front of a screen to be benefitted by blue light blocking glasses. With zFORT™, you can turn any regular pair of glasses into computer glasses for good vision as well as good eye health.
