Blue Light Lenses are Here!
What’s all the hype about?
The hype has been real for the blue light lens technology- everyone is asking for it and everybody is wearing it. But why? We’ve been staring at screens for basically our entire lives (crazy right?) and nowadays are addicted to our phones. According to the American Optometric Association, digital eye strain has "a group of eye- and vision-related problems that result from prolonged computer, tablet, e-reader, and cell phone use." Issues range from blurry vision and dry eyes to headaches and neck pain. Within this process, we are exposed to blue light waves which have negative long term effects.
Why Blue Light Technology?
On average, we spend up to 7 hours a day on digital devices and it is inevitable to encounter a digital screen within your daily routine. Let’s face it, it's unavoidable. Blue light technology is used to block any harmful blue waves while you're accomplishing your day. If you find you are getting frequent headaches, itchy eyes, and constantly tired, this can be an easy and stylish solution.
You can rest easy knowing you are taking care of your health by simply wearing optical frames with blue light technology. Whether you're watching TV, scrolling through your fave IG accounts or grinding away on your work assignment- your eyes will look good while you Do Good.
That’s right! You will be getting a better night's sleep when your eyes are protected from blue light waves at night. According to Harvard Medical School, “until the advent of artificial lighting, the sun was the major source of lighting, and people spent their evenings in (relative) darkness.” Blue light technology blocks the wavelengths that tell our bodies to stay awake.

We have just launched TWO new frames (the Vista Rx and the Quinn Rx) that come standard with blue light technology. The Heber Rx, a best seller, is also available with this feature. More Rx styles are coming soon with blue light. Follow us @proofeyewear for the most up to date styles.
