Harmful ultraviolet and high-energy light is everywhere – from the highest levels found in natural sunlight and lower levels found in LED and fluorescent lighting, even digital devices. High-Energy Light (290-460 nm) has been linked to skin cancer, cataracts, macular degeneration and other serious eye conditions.1,2 Health-conscious consumers understand the risks and are looking for an everyday lens that offers a higher level of protection.

The sun’s rays contain several types light that can cause permanent damage to the eyes and surrounding tissues: visible and invisible light. While invisible Ultraviolet radiation (UVA and UVB) is the most damaging, High Energy Visible Light (HEV) or “blue light” is a visible high-energy radiation that can negatively impact eye health. Research shows that prolonged exposure to high energy light can damage the retina, iris, conjunctiva, and lead to wrinkling and premature aging of the skin around the eyes. While this damage is oftentimes irreversible, wearing lenses that block and filter damaging high energy light can help prevent damage.
