This collective increase in digital screen time has also led to an increase in exposure to harmful blue light from these digital devices. Continuous exposure to blue light may cause serious long-term damages to the eyes.
Understanding the need to protect one’s eyes from the harmful blue light, the Elements range of lenses was introduced. Elements lenses filter the blue light emitted from digital and natural sources to give protection to one’s eyes. Elements lenses offer UV protection, anti-reflection, smudge resistant and scratch-resistant features in addition to helping you to fight the long-term effects of prolonged blue light exposure.
