Harmful Light and Its Damaging Effects!
Harmful light is made up of invisible UV rays and visible blue light emitted from computers, tablets, smart phones as well as television screens and LED lighting. The effects of this blue light can be felt upon our quality of life, showing up as visual fatigue, headaches and a decrease in productivity. Over the long term, things can get even worse! Harmful blue light can penetrate the deepest layers of the eye, potentially causing serious ocular disease. And to think that 60% of us spend more than six hours a day in front of our screens! And, did you know that along with UV rays, the sun emits 500 times more harmful blue light than what we are exposed to indoors? No doubt about it - it is absolutely essential to provide complete and effective ocular protection for oneself!
Eye Protect System: The Ideal Solution for Keeping Eyes Protected At All Times
Now featuring protection against blue light and harmful UV rays, the Eye Protect System is an innovation integrated directly into lenses that are destined for everyone, available on all Essilor surfaced lenses. The system filters blue light in clear lenses; materials that benefit from this innovation decrease harmful blue light that can potentially lead to AMD, by up to 25%. And, if it is combined with other lenses, such as Transitions lenses, up to 45% of the harmful blue light is blocked! In addition, for optimal protection, there is an E-SPF index that is added with Crizal treatment. This certifies total UV protection for the lens.
The Eye Protect System reduces short-term visual fatigue and promotes overall wellbeing (improved mood, cognitive performances). Long term, it protects against ocular disease and premature ageing of the eyes.
Eye Protect System: a major innovation offering the most comprehensive protection in a clear lens. It protects against harmful light, prevents ocular diseases and promotes long-term eye health!
