Why we filter Blue Light?
Blue Light is high-energy light that screens emit, and it can have negative impacts on our health. Studies show overexposure to Blue Light may be linked to eye strain, increased risk of macular degeneration, and sleep cycle disruption. Our lenses filter Blue Light, particularly the highest energy wavelengths of 400-440 nm.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does blue light affect our eyes?
Blue light is a high-impact light that emits from screens, whether you're using a laptop, a phone, or a computer. Overexposure of those blue lights can have negative effects on our health, such as eye strain, headaches, disruption in sleep cycles, and an increased risk of macular degeneration.
Who should wear your BluDefend?
Anybody that regularly uses a smartphone, a laptop or a computer should get BluDefend blue light blocking lenses. In addition to those that spend a lot of time in front of a screen, BluDefend also blocks UV rays so it provides those benefits outdoors as well.
How do blue light blocking lenses work?
Yes, blue light blocking lenses have filters in their lenses that can absorb or block harmful blue light, and many cases UV light, from effecting the eyes. These filters will provide a level of protection to your eyes by reducing the blue light exposure, which can negatively impact your health.

What makes BluDefend better than traditional blue light blocking lenses?
We embed our technology into the lenses so our glasses can filter 50% of all blue light and almost 80% to 90% of the highest range without distorting color. We also apply anti-glare and UV protection into each lens to make sure you're protected indoors and outdoors.
What does "nearly clear lens" mean?
Traditionally, blue light blocking lenses would have a obvious blue-reflective coating, we don't do that. Instead, we apply a proprietary tiny that is so subtle that it's virtually unnoticeable while worn.
