In the Focus on Optics section of the May-June issue of Optik Magazine, Nikon Lenswear presents Blue Light Protection.
UV rays are invisible yet they pose a considerable amount of danger not only to the skin but, to the human eye as well. Exposure to UV light can cause short-term problems such as photokeratitis which is basically a sunburn of the eye.
Today’s electronic devices, including computers, tablets, smartphones and TVs emit high-energy blue light. Because of the growing popularity of these devices, the exposure to blue light sources has drastically increased, leading to negative effects on our health and eye vision.
Nikon was the first to invent blue light cut lenses in 2011 and has now just introduced Pure Blue UV. With Nikon’s Light Purification Technology, embedded molecules within the lens intelligently filter UV and part of the blue light before it reaches the patient’s eyes.
Essentially this light purification technology captures the invisible danger you can’t see while offering enhanced aesthetics. So now whether your wearers are conducting virtual meetings or capturing memories of their in-person events, they can enjoy a better look without blue light reflections being visible on the lens.
Pure Blue UV is a new material that allows protection and aesthetics to co-live together. It is the best looking solution compared to standard lenses with similar levels of protection and offers up to 35% blue light cut.
Find out some simple steps to keep in mind when recommending Pure Blue UV in the full article featured in May-June Optik.
