We love BluTech lenses because we wear BluTech lenses to protect our eyes! Here’s a video of Dr. Golson and some of our team who shared about their own BluTech experience. Why wear BluTech lenses? BluTech lenses protect against blue light. What is blue light? Blue light has a very short wavelength, therefore it produces a higher amount of energy. Blue light also flickers more easily than longer wavelengths and creates glare due to the flickering tendencies.
According to Harvard Health, blue wavelengths are beneficial during daylight hours because they boost attention, reaction times, and mood. However at night, blue light tells your body it’s not time to go to sleep. Blue light actually produces a reaction that tells your brain to turn off melatonin production. Melatonin tells your brain it’s nighttime and that it is time to sleep.
Blue light is emitted by electronics such as your phone, computer, tablets, and fluorescent and LED lights. There is scientific evidence that points to exposure to blue light being harmful not just to the quality of your sleep, but also harmful to your eyes. There is also evidence that blue light is linked to retinal damage and age-related macular degeneration.
