If you spend a lot of your time indoors you will likely be exposed to blue-violet light from LED light bulbs as well as computer's, smartphone, tablet and TV screens. The Zeiss DuraVision BlueProtect coating reflects the harmful blue-violet light from these devices and sources preventing this light from entering your eye and offers a superior anti-reflection coating compared to traditional coatings.

Blue light can disrupt sleep

There is a debate within the optical world about blue light which can be a helpful tool against seasonal depression and insomnia. However, blue light can also permanently damage the human eye and the blue light from viewing digital devices at night can disrupt the brain’s production of melatonin, causing sleep disturbances and a dysfunction of the natural circadian rhythm.

Blue-violet light can damage the eye

Blue-violet light has less energy than ultraviolet light and in contrast to UV light (which is mostly absorbed by the front surface of the eye) blue light reaches as far as the retina. Blue-violet light therefore has the potential to cause damage to our eyes. Ultraviolet and blue-violet light can lead to painful inflammation of the front surface of the eye, damage to the lens within the eye itself (e.g., cataracts) and especially damage to the retina (known as macular degeneration). Zeiss DuraVision BlueProtect coating can help to protect they eye from blue-violet light.

Zeiss BlueProtect protection from modern digital devices and lighting

Modern digital devices & lighting emit blue light

Most digital devices (smartphones, tablets, computers and modern TV screens) as well as LED and Xenon lights contain a higher proportion of blue light. Blue light regulates the circadian rhythm to ensure alertness in daytime and allow for restful sleep during the night. Viewing these at night can disrupt the brain’s production of melatonin, causing sleep disturbances and a dysfunction of the natural circadian rhythm. Zeiss DuraVision BlueProtect lenses filter the undesirable wavelengths between 440nm and 465nm, while allowing the beneficial blue light through.

If you mainly wear your glasses indoors, you don't really need a UV block. However, DuraVision Blue Protect blocks blue light radiation irritating or tiring some people's eyes. A blue filter can give sharper vision as different wavelengths are refracted slightly differently by the cornea (front surface of the eye) and the lens within the eye. Not all of wavelengths of light strike at the same focal point on the retina.

DuraVision BlueProtect lenses can be worn all day long unless you wish to wear sunglasses for outdoor activities which also offer 100% UV protection.
