From early morning until late at night we are using all kinds of digital devices, for work as well as for recreation. Think about laptops, tablets, smartphones and televisions. As we access most of these devices at a short distance, our eyes are increasingly exposed to the light emitted by the screens of those devices. Moreover, this requires our eyes to switch continuously between photos, illustrations and text or follow moving images.
Research* has shown that more than 34% spend 4 to 6 hours a day with digital devices, while 14% even spends between 10 and 12 hours a day. It is therefore not surprising that more and more people complain about:

LCD and LED computer and television screens, smartphones, tablets and GPS devices all emit blue light, also known as high energy visible light. As the quality of such screens improves continuously, their blue light emission is increasing. Although blue light in itself is a natural phenomenon – it is present in daylight and helps us to stay awake – excessive amounts can have an adverse effect and cause eye strain and fatigue.
Blue control is a blue light filter built into the material of your optical lenses to neutralise blue light emitted by LCD and LED screens as well as other digital devices, fluorescent and LED light globes. This helps prevent eye fatigue and eye strain caused by exposure to blue light—especially from use of digital devices. If you spend a lot of time in front of a computer, blue control lenses are a fantastic choice as they offer more comfortable vision and better contrast perception. You’ll definitely notice the difference.
