BLUE LIGHT BLOCKING GLASSES
NEVER WORK OR STUDY WITHOUT IRIS AGAIN
With screens dominating our offices, schools, and downtime, we are not aware of the cumulative impact overexposure to screens has on our wellbeing. In order to preserve our optic health and ease tension in our minds, we should incorporate healthy practices into our daily lives.
This is where Iris comes in.
Iris glasses are designed to comfortably protect your and your loved one’s eye health by filtering out harmful blue light and its adverse health effects.
WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT?
Blue light is the visible light spectrum and can be seen by the human eye. Before the advancement of technology, the only source of blue light was from the sun. In fact, the sky looks blue to the human eye because of these “blue” wavelengths that come from the sun and collide with air molecules.
WHAT IS HEV LIGHT?
High Energy Visible (HEV) Light is the technical term for blue light. It is one of the shortest and highest energy wavelengths on the light spectrum, which flickers longer than other types of wavelengths.
The flickering in HEV light reduces visual contrast, which affects the sharpness and clarity of your vision, resulting in increased effort to focus that eventually leads to eye strain, mental and physical fatigue, and migraines and headaches.
The blue light we see and receive from the sun is important for our overall health, especially when it comes to regulating our circadian rhythm - our natural sleeping and waking cycle. However, once we had integrated blue light into our screens, we increasingly dysregulate our circadian rhythm by artificially telling our bodies to boost our alertness and delay sleep, leading to a host of negative side-effects.
WHAT ARE THE DOWNSIDES TO A DYSREGULATED CIRCADIAN RHYTHM?Loss of sleep
Unusual waking and sleeping hours
Increased risk of heart disease
Increased risk of accidents at work or behind the wheel
Overexposure to blue light not only leads to increased risk of dysregulated circadian rhythms, but also to the risk of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), a syndrome that comes from looking at screens for too long.
HOW DO IRIS’ LENSES BLOCK HARMFUL BLUE LIGHT WAVELENGTHS?
Using a unique lens-coating formula, Iris is able to design glasses that block out blue light and save you the headache of all the negative side-effects that come from overexposure to devices that emit blue light.
The formula of the lens coating absorbs and reflects blue light, thereby allowing your eyes to see and rest comfortably while using your digital devices.
For professionals, graphic designers and gamers especially, Iris eyewear can help sharpen the contrast of colours and images on any screen to help you succeed and get ahead without straining your eyes.
