Available in six different colours – black, white, pink, blue, grey and red – and in three different sizes – Children’s (3 – 7 years), Tweenies (7 – 16 years) and Adults (16 years plus).
A recent study*showed that wearing a lens treated with a blue-light filter coating helped reduce symptoms of eyestrain by half during prolonged computer exposure. 2.42 symptoms before versus 1.47 symptoms with blue coating (P=0.04).
After wearing a lens treated with a blue-light filter coating, subjects with symptoms of eyestrain due to prolonged computer exposure felt a significant improvement of the following symptoms: dry eyes, sticky eyes, and the feeling of grittiness or “sand” in the eye.
They also reported a trend of the overall vision and improved visual performances in situations of low contrast.

– Children are at particular risk for eyestrain due to their increased use of digital devices.
– Children and teens from ages (8-18 years) spend an average of 7 hours a day
on electronic devisces such as tablets, smart phones, e-readers and videogames.
– Until the age of 10 years, children´s eyes are not fully developed. The
crystalline lens and cornea are still largely transparent and overexposed to light, so too much exposure to blue light can be harmful and cause future eye damage.
