May 14, 2014: BluTech Lenses
Have you heard of BluTech Lenses? This is a question that we have been asked a lot lately. BluTech lenses filter high-energy blue and ultraviolet light using ocular lens pigment. The ocular lens pigment is then combined with melanin and isolated in a durable material. Why is this important, you might ask. When used in an optical lens in your eyeglasses, this infusion of pigment provides the same protection, contrast enhancement and color perception to the eye as the natural yellow-brown coloration of the human crystalline lens inside the eye.
The benefits of BluTech Lenses are ultraviolet and high-energy blue light protection, natural depth and color perception, improved visual acuity and night vision, improved contrast and reduced glare and impact resistant.
BluTech Lenses are available for both indoors and outdoors. The indoor lenses have a yellowish-brownish tint that does not hinder visual acuity. They not only protect your eyes from sources of high energy blue light such as harsh fluorescent lighting, computer screens and personal electronics, they also have a soothing effect on your eyes. The outdoor lenses have a darker brown sunglass tint and allow improved visual acuity, better color perception, reduce glare and allow you to see everything in high-definition.
BluTech Lenses can be used with any type of frame and do not distort color perception. Next time (or anytime) you are in our office for your eye examination, ask us about BluTech Lenses to see if they may be right for you.
