Blue Light and Your Eyes

How do you protect your eyes from damaging blue light?

BLUE LIGHT FILTERING LENSES:

  • An advanced coating can be applied to prescription and non-prescription lenses to block harmful blue light.
  • We offer Sharper Image TechShield, Crizal Prevencia, and Retinal Bliss as blue light filtering options.
  • These lens coatings are clear. Stop into our optical today to test them out!

BLUTECH LENSES

  • These advanced lenses are infused with a precise balance of ocular lens pigment and melanin to give your eyes optimal defense against harmful blue light. Additionally, these lenses have been shown to reduce the symptoms of computer vision syndrome.
  • BluTech lenses are available in an indoor and outdoor version.
  • This is the most effective lens on the market to reduce the amount of damaging blue-light interacting with retinal tissue.

MACULAR PIGMENT OCULAR DENSITOMETRY TESTING:

  • Advanced technology now enables us to measure the pigment levels in the central retina, also known as the macula, in less than five minutes using a simple light-response test.
  • Those individuals with low pigment levels are up to 40% more likely to develop Macular Degeneration, a blinding eye disease.
  • Low pigment levels can also impact visual performance, night vision, and allow damage from blue light.
  • Come in today to discover out your pigment score! Fortunately, effective treatment is available to increase your pigment level, and, in turn, reduce your risk of developing Macular Degeneration.

MACUHEALTH:

  • MacuHealth is a natural eye health supplement that helps to reduce the risk of macular degeneration and maintain healthy eyes.
  • This supplement is comprised of three natural carotenoids- leutin, zeazanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin- all of which are critical to filter and protect against harmful blue light.
  • One can obtain some macular protective pigments from a diet rich in green and leafy vegetables, but the meso-zeaxanthin pigment is not readily available in the Western diet, which is why a supplement is imperative.
  • MacuHealth is offered in 3-month supply. We offer discounts on bulk purchases.
