See better. Look perfect.

What is blue-violet light?

Both inside and outside, harmful blue-violet light is all around us, emitted by digital devices, LED artificial lighting, as well as by the sun.

While being outdoors during daylight hours has traditionally been the main source of blue light exposure for most us, our increasing reliance on technology means we are also now exposed to many man-made indoor sources of blue light.

If you spend more than 2 hours a day staring at a screen (whether its a smartphone, tablet or computer), use LED lighting, or you work outdoors, harmful blue-violet light can be doing both short- and long-term damage to your eyes.

What are the side effects of blue-violet light?

Because this short-wavelength, high energy light suppresses your melatonin production and alters your circadian rhythms, blue light interferes with both the quality and quantity of your sleep.

Other side effects of extended exposure to devices that emit blue-violet light may include eye strain, visual fatigue, headaches, sore or tired eyes, stiff necks and insomnia.


Introducing Smart Blue Filter lenses

Blue-lens technology can help protect your eyesight from harmful blue-violet light.

Our new Smart Blue Filter lenses are more than just a coating on the outside of your lens that can scratch off…the filter is actually embedded in the lens of your glasses.

The Smart Blue Filter specific absorbers neutralise any residual yellow tinge, greatly enhancing lens appearance, so unlike competitor products, our Smart Blue Filter lenses are perfectly clear, with no residual yellow tinge or blue reflections.

Smart Blue Filter lenses deliver integrated protection against blue-violet light embedded in a perfectly clear anti-reflective lens.

Up to 3 times more protection

At Ian Donald Optometrist our Smart Blue Filter lenses provide up to 3 times more protection against blue-violet light than standard prescription glasses.

Come in and talk to us about how we can help protect your eyes from the harmful short- and long-term side effects of blue-violet light overexposure, and make your screen time more pleasant too.
