Roth Eye Clinic is excited to offer Blue Light Defender Lenses to our patients. Blue light eye damage is becoming increasingly common as people spend more time staring at computer screens, tablets, and smartphones.
Defender Lenses block out “blue light” radiation emissions in the “High Energy Visible” 400-420 nanometer light range, in addition to blocking out Ultraviolet rays.
Research has proven that exposure to LED light and electronic devices can adversely affect melatonin levels, which disturbs one’s sleep patterns. Other research suggests that blocking UV and HEV light can protect eyes against cataracts and Age-related Macular Degeneration.
Defender lenses are available in both single vision and multifocal/progressive (no-line bifocal) modalities. Contact the Clinic for details.
