We can’t seem to escape blue light even indoors with all the devices, computers or TV. For those who spend the majority of their time indoors, computer glasses like Eyezen protect your eyes from extended exposure to blue light and help relax your vision reducing digital eye strain.
Some modern progressive lens designs like the Varilux X Series are also optimised for computers, devices and blue light.
Ultimately the sun produces the strongest and most potentially harmful short wavelength light, so simply protecting our eyes against man-made sources isn’t enough.
For protection, it is necessary to use lens coatings to filter out the harmful blue light and let in the good. This will ensure constant protection for your eyes without affecting your vision at all.
Sunglasses and Transitions lenses block a significant proportion of harmful light and are the best option outdoor eyewear in bright light like the beach, on the boat or up the mountain.
Both indoor and outdoors
Clear protective lens coatings like Crizal, are perfect for indoor and outdoor use, making it a convenient solution to the harmful blue light.
Even clear lenses can have a tint free blue light absorbing filter. Smart Blue Filter™ is embedded protection in the lens. The molecules in Smart Blue Filter™ absorb 20% of harmful blue-violet light from 415nm-455nm while allowing beneficial blue-turquoise light to pass through the lens.

Transitions GEN8 provide the fastest change from light to dark and dark to light. In general the technology in the lens harnesses the light energy to drive the tinting process. Below shows the performance of the previous generation Transitions Signature VII.
