49 Ways to Balance the Blues

By


The 46 products below offer blue light management solutions for every situation, both indoors and outdoors. They run the gamut from blue light-filtering lenses and coatings to screen protectors, neutraceuticals and lens demonstration units.




ADLENS INTERFACE
Adlens


Blocks 80 percent of harmful blue light. Adlens adjustable focus technology enables the wearer to set their required level of focusing power for screens at all distances. Compared with standard prescription eyewear or readers, this flexibility means the eyewear itself can adapt to the screen in use, rather than forcing the wearer to adapt their position by leaning forward or straining their neck. This ease of use makes Adlens Interface a particularly effective tool for combatting digital eye strain, as they can be used by anyone, for any screen, in any circumstance.

BLEP
BLEP Eyewear


BLEP (Blue Light Eye Protection) is a patent-pending, multi-layered coating applied to the front and back of the company’s reading and non-prescription lenses that selectively filters out harmful light while still allowing beneficial blue light to reach the eyes. The clear coating offers blue light protection, natural color and clear aesthetic appearance. The 1.60 high-index lenses are lightweight and block UV

BLUE BARRIER ABSORPTIVE TINTS AND METER BLUE LIGHT FILTER VISION TESTER

BPI


These tints absorb all of the harmful light of wavelengths shorter than 450nm, 500nm and 540nm, respectively, including UV light. The BPI Blue Light Filter Vision Tester (# 109519) is a blue/violet light source that demonstrates the effectiveness of a blue/violet light blocking lens. The intense blue light beams produced by the source are greatly attenuated by some lenses and the effect is readily observed when the lenses are placed between the source and your eye.

BLUE BARRIER METER

BPI

BPI has developed a simple meter that is designed to check the transmittance of lenses for the blue/violet wavelengths of 400nm and 500nm, which have been implicated in macular degeneration. The meter provides a figure of merit to use in comparing and producing lenses that protect patients from radiations in this wavelength range. The BPI Blue Barrier Meter uses LED light sources centered at 400nm, 430nm, 470nm, 505nm and 525nm to evaluate lens transmission in these regions. The transmission percentage at each range is displayed along with the Wertheim Factor (patent pending), a figure of merit based on a comparison of the lens’ photopic transmission with its blocking ability for high-energy (blue/violet) wavelengths. The meter also has caution indicating LEDs which indicate if the lens transmission is higher than that which would be provided by a linear drop in transmission with wavelength from its tV value down to zero in the UVA. Air (no lens) lights all caution LEDs and has a Wertheim factor of “0”. A lens with high luminous transmission but minimal high energy blue/violet transmission such as BPI Total Day has a Wertheim factor of “43”.

BLUEBUSTER
eyeOs


BlueBuster blue light filtering lenses improve visual acuity and comfort when working in front of a computer screen or other digital devices, according to eyeOs. The lenses reduce digital eyestrain by reducing the amount of short wavelength blue light reaching the retina. Based on comparative analysis of indoor competitive blue filter transmission curves, BlueBuster lenses provide the highest level of blue light filtration in a clear lens, even when compared to blue filters with “champagne” tints. BlueBuster is not part of the AR coating, the blue filter properties are incorporated in the lens monomer.

BlueBuster lenses filter 100 percent up to 410 nm, 86 percent at 420nm and 40 percent at 430 nm.

BlueBuster lenses are the new standard at no additional charge in eyeOs’ OfficePal and PcPal progressive readers, since these lens designs are typically used to work on a computer or digital device. BlueBuster is also available as an option in all eyeOs readers with powers ranging from plano to +4.00 diopters in 0.25 diopter increments for an additional MSRP $15.

FORTIFEYE FOCUS CHEWIE AND FORTIFEYE VITAMINS
Fortify Vitamins


Fortifeye Focus and Focus Chewie are evidence based supplements developed for the valuable ocular health benefits of Lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin. Lutein and zeaxanthin are used for the valuable short blue light absorbing properties. Studies indicate these 2 carotenoids may help to minimize the potential blue light damage to the retina. Astaxanthin is one of the most potent antioxidant and anti- inflammatory nutrients that crosses the blood retinal barrier. Astaxanthin also helps to decrease accomadative eye strain from prolonged near work. The combination of lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin is beneficial for people any age to help decrease the potential harmful side effects from the computer, tablet, smart phone and other digital apps used daily, according to Fortifeye Vitamins.

HOYA RECHARGE AND HOYA BLUTECH
Hoya Vision Care


Hoya’s Recharge EX3 anti-reflective treatment reduces the amount of blue light reaching the eyes by reflecting the “bad” blue light emitted from back-lit handheld and other electronic devices and ensuring the portion of blue light needed for optimal contrast and other health benefits is allowed to pass through. Hoya BluTech lenses filter high-energy blue and block ultra violet light using a proprietary process involving the infusion of ocular lens pigment into the monomer of an optical lens. This infusion of pigment provides similar protection, contrast enhancement, glare reduction and color perception to the eye as the natural coloration of the human crystalline lens.

TRANSITIONS LENSES
Transitions Optical


Transitions lenses have always blocked blue light indoors because the photochromic molecules in the un-activated indoor state still absorb some light without compromising indoor vision clarity. Because Transitions has control over the structure of the photochromic molecules it can provide the benefit of blue light blocking while the lenses are still seen as clear. Transitions lenses blocking at least 20 percent of the harmful blue light indoors—up to two times more than standard clear lenses—and block over 85 percent outdoors. Transitions XTRActive lenses block at least 34 percent of the harmful blue light indoors and 88 to 95 percent of harmful blue light outdoors. Transitions Vantage lenses are also effective, blocking at least 34 percent of the harmful blue light indoors and over 85 percent outdoors.
