Blue Light

Blue light is high-energy light that is produced from computer, T.V., tablet, and mobile screens. Our Blue Select Lenses filter out dangerous blue light rays and lessen the glare that can come from a screen. Blue Select Lenses helps prevent strained eyes from looking at computers and digital devices. Smartphones, tablets, computers and televisions have become a vital part of modern lives, whether it’s at work, studying or relaxing with them. However the downside to being constantly connected is that research is showing that device-emitted blue light waves can also cause eyestrain, headaches and fatigue. Blue light exposure may increase the risk of macular degeneration. The fact that blue light penetrates all the way to the retina (the inner lining of the back of the eye) is important, because laboratory studies have shown that too much exposure to blue light can damage light-sensitive cells in the retina. CHOICE BluSelect is a virtually clear lenses that provide in-monomer protection against UV and high energy blue light.

Anti-Reflection Coating

Anti-reflective coating (also called “AR coating” or “anti-glare coating”) improves vision, reduces eye strain and makes your eyeglasses look more attractive. These benefits are due to the ability of AR coating to virtually eliminate reflections from the front and back surfaces of your eyeglass lenses. With reflections gone, more light passes through your lenses to optimize visual acuity with fewer distractions (especially at night), and the lenses look nearly invisible — which enhances your appearance by drawing more attention to your eyes and helping you make better “eye contact” with others.

 

Scratch Coat

No eyeglass lenses — not even glass lenses — are scratchproof. However, lenses that are treated front and back with a clear, scratchresistant coating have a much harder surface that is moreresistant to scratching, whether from dropping your glasses on the floor or occasionally cleaning them with a paper towel.

 

Photochromatic Lenses

Photochromic lenses are optical lenses that darken on exposure to specific types of light of sufficient intensity, most commonly ultraviolet (UV) radiation. In the absence of activating light the lenses return to their clear state. Photochromic lenses may be made of glass, polycarbonate, or another plastic.
