I think most would agree that we live in a digital world. I know maybe one person who does not own a smart phone or tablet. But she owns a computer and her kids have tablets and so, even they, are digital households.
Hoya Lenses continues to forge forward in the quest to make sure that you and your kids eye’s are protected against the strain of computer and screen time wear and tear!
Our eyes were designed for us to use as hunters and gatherers. Now we hunt and gather on Google! We are not fully equipped to handle all of the demands placed on our eyes by today’s technological devices.
And our eyes certainly pay the price.
Several studies as well as data from OSHA and ISO, all show there are hazards associated with the High Energy Visible (HEV) Blue Light portion of the light spectrum. Blue light, including HEV Blue Light, is emitted from hand-held devices such as smart phones and tablets. Symptoms as diverse as sleep disorders in children and adolescents, headaches, blurred vision, and fatigue can be due to exposure to blue light radiating from hand-held digital equipment.
HOYA has developed and launched RechargeTM, an anti-reflective lens treatment that reflects the harmful Blue Light away from the eyes. HOYA’s new Recharge anti-reflective treatment reflects the portion of blue light emitted from back-lit hand held devices that is “bad” and ensures the portion of blue light we need for optimal contrast and other health benefits is allowed to pass through. In a sign of our times, studies show many children, and people in their 20s who grew up with hand-held devices as part of their lives, are spending as much as half their day staring at a screen barely an arm’s length away. This generation is most certainly overexposed to blue light emitted from their smart phones and tablets and suffering unnecessarily from fatigue.
