majority of people spend more than half their waking hours
harmful blue light emitted by devices we us everyday.
Blue light illuminates today’s digital world.
smartphones to household lighting, you rely on blue light to live, work,
and play. But along with the advantages of blue light come serious
concerns. Our indoor world has changed. High-efficiency compact
florescent and LED lighting have replaced inefficient incandescent
bulbs. As your eye care provider, you depend on us for the quality,
safety, and health of your vision.
Blue-violet light is everywhere.
Damaging blue-violet light can be
found everywhere and the more you’re exposed to it, the greater your
risk of eye damage. Increasingly, health professionals recommend that
people of all ages protect their eyes from excessive blue-violet light
exposure. ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect shields your eyes from
damaging blue-violet rays, indoors or out.
A health threat hiding in plain sight.
Like invisible UV radiation,
exposure to blueviolet light can affect your eyes and your health.
And the threat is increasing as we are exposed to increasing levels of

Shielding your eyes from damaging rays.
BlueProtect is designed for people who spend a good deal of
time in front of their computer, television or tablet, or are frequently

ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect gives your eyes
enhanced protection from potential blue-violet light damage.
Superior clarity and scratch resistance.
ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect
incorporates leading edge anti-reflective and scratch-resistance
technology ensuring both your eyes and eyeglasses are protected. Surface reflections from lenses can distract you and interfere with your
vision, particularly in lowlight conditions.
Anti-reflective lenses reduce reflections, resulting in clearer vision. Superior scratch-resistance technology helps protect lenses from
developing scratches due to cleaning and normal wear and tear.

PROTECTION VS PERCENTAGES
Blue light protection
functions on a spectral curve, benefiting vision and health differently
across the spectrum. Rather than lumping protection into a general
percentage, it’s vital to consider how much transmission a product
prevents at specific points in the spectrum.
Yes, our indoor world has changed. The use of digital devices truly has
dramatically increased. The light transmitted by these screens are full
of visual noise or high-energy light waves (HEV) that are just beyond
the visible spectrum.
Visual noise can elevate the stress on our
eyes to problematic levels causing headaches, loss of focus, blurred
vision and eventually overall eye fatigue or Digital Eye Strain (DES).
