TechShield Blue increases clarity and sharpness on digital screens by absorbing and reflecting specific wavelengths of blue light.
With 63% of US employees now working from home1 and parents reporting a recent 500% increase in children's online screen time2, exposure to blue light from digital devices is at an all-time high.
Scientific research has linked blue light to the onset of digital eye strain in as little as two hours of exposure to digital devices. And according to The Vision Council, 2 out of 3 people in the US experience digital eye strain symptoms3 of dry eyes, blurred vision, tired eyes, sore eyes, headaches, and watery eyes.
TechShield Blue is a next-generation anti-reflective coating that absorbs and reflects specific wavelengths of blue light linked to digital eye strain.
First, find the perfect pair of eyeglasses. Once you’ve added them to your shopping bag and continue to check out, you’ll be prompted to pick a lens package and any additional lens enhancement. You can select TechShield Blue at that point.
Your eyes weren’t built to process blue light well. So they work extra hard trying to bring this light into focus. All that work puts a lot of strain on your eyes. Think of it like running a marathon where someone keeps moving the finish line back.
Absolutely. With the increase in at-home online schooling, children are experiencing an unprecedented amount of time on digital devices, meaning increased blue light exposure. In addition to the duration and frequency of blue light exposure, children are anatomically built to receive more blue light. That's because they have larger pupils and clear, crystalline lenses, both of which allow more blue light to enter their eyes. When you combine these factors, TechShield® Blue not only offers children blue light defense, but also offers parents peace of mind.
Whether you’re at work or a weekend hotspot, your appearance matters. TechShield Blue was designed with this in mind. Unlike blue light lenses with yellow or orange tints, this next-generation coating has an attractive, near-clear appearance.5 So you’ll never have to compromise your looks to defend your eyes.
As a premium anti-reflective coating, TechShield Blue also improves daily visual comfort, optimizes visual performance, enhances appearance, protects against UV rays, and resists scratching and smudging to help extend the life of your lenses.
