PROTOX BLUE ZERO
WHY ARE BLUE BLOCKING GLASSES SO IMPORTANT?
We are surrounded by screens spending a lot of time in front of digital devices. We have all felt the effects of too much screen time. Screens emit harmful high-energy light that completely depletes our melatonin production. Extensive exposure to blue light emitted by screens leads to tiredness, dry eyes, eye strain, insufficient visual contrast and even headaches. Spending too much time in front of a screen also increases the risk of macular degeneration and retinal disease. Scicon Sports comes to the rescue and has teamed up with Shamir Optical, global leader in lens manufacturing, to provide you with a solution that ensures comfortable vision in all light conditions that absorbs the right amount of harmful blue light without interfering with your vision.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE LENS
The Shamir Blue Zero™ lenses used in Scicon Sports Blue Zero collection are nearly clear lenses that have a coating which is specially developed for people that spend a lot of time in front of digital devices and are exposed to harmful artificial blue light. A unique polymer formula locks out up to 98% of high energy visible blue light in the range of 415nm to 435nm, blocking up to 3 times more harmful blue light than a standard clear lens. By absorbing just the right amount of blue light, Scicon Blue Zero™ protects your health without interfering with visual comfort. Blue Zero™ lenses also provide UV protection by effectively absorbing harmful UVA and UVB rays. Suitable for everyone, recommended for children as well as adults.
REDUCING A CLEAR & PRESENT DANGER
Research on visual health shows an increase in eye diseases related to today’s greatly increased exposure to artificial light. High energy visible blue light can cause increased production of lipofuscin which suppresses the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates your sleep–wake cycle. Decreased melatonin levels cause a disruption of your natural sleep cycle which causes a greater risk of a number of other conditions from cardio-metabolic problems to impaired immune systems.
If you spend a lot of time in front of digital screens the Scicon Sports Blue Zero eyeglasses are made for you. Our lenses protect your eyes when it matters the most without interfering with your vision. Reduce eyestrain, improve your sleep and enhance your overall well being while looking good.
