EyeShield UVBlue: Protects your eyes against harmful UV and Blue Light
Active living today has changed with technology. Both natural and artificial light, whether indoors or outdoors, can harm our eyes. To ensure maximum protection for our eyes, you need to shield them from the harmful effects of UV rays and Blue Light emission
The Good and Bad of Blue Light
In our digital world, we are surrounded by artificial light. And because of its higher energy level, Blue Light is particularly harmful due to the effects of HEV (High Energy Visible) light. With increasing Blue Light exposure from screens of digital devices, we can suffer from digital eye strain, also known as Computer Vision Syndrome. Blue Light is also present in homes too – mainly from fluorescent and LED lights, flat screen LED televisions, digital screens of computers, tablets and smartphones and the list goes on. An adult habitually spends an average of 12 hours a day in front of a digital screen while a child would spend about 6.5 hours a day. Studies have shown that prolonged exposure to blue light causes digital eye strain and possible retina damage that causes macular degeneration.
Harmful UV Rays
We are more careful when it comes to protecting our skin from UV exposure but sadly most of us neglect our eyes. The more we are exposed to UV rays from sunlight, the greater the risk to our eyes, especially so for children as their developing eyes allow more radiation to pass through. Singapore has one of the world’s highest Ultra Violet Index (UVI) score throughout the year; 11.5UVI, as compared to Australia at 8.4UVI (World Health Organization 2016). Some of the possible effects from constant UV exposure are inflammation of the cornea and conjunctiva, pterygium (tissue growth on the cornea) and early formation of cataracts.
To ensure maximum protection, you need a lens that shields your eyes both indoors and outdoors.
