Historically, the ophthalmic field has been very concerned about the damaging effects of ultraviolet light on various structures in the eye.  Research has recently turned our attention to the visible spectrum of light, the red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet, which comprises white light. These different colors represent different wavelengths of energy. The blue light with its 450-495nm wavelength has the greatest potential for damaging the human retina.

COCOONS PURIFY COMPUTER EYEWEAR

If you wear prescription glasses you need these! Cocoons Eyewear, the world leader in fitover sunglasses and low vision filters, now offers the world’s finest fitover computer glasses! These Cocoons fitover computer glasses with the Purify Lens System are equipped with advanced technological lenses specifically designed to remove that bad blue light which can cause Computer Vision Syndrome.

Live Eyewear’s Purify™ Computer Lens System is the perfect complement to our fitover eyewear collection. Our computer glasses are specifically designed to block the harmful high energy visible (HEV) blue light that emanates from computer screens, tablets, televisions, fluorescent lighting and cell phones. This is the blue light that can cause sleeplessness, tension headaches and eye strain which are the main symptoms of what is now known as computer vision syndrome (CVS). Even worse, prolonged exposure to HEV light can lead to serious eye disorders such as age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

Our Purify Lens System targets and filters that bad HEV blue light and removes it before it can reach your eyes. The remaining filtered light helps your eyes relax and helps to eliminate those troubling CVS symptoms. Your eyes enjoy crystal clear visual acuity and natural color representation.

Why You Should Protect Your Eyes From Blue Light

Melatonin is a powerful antioxidant protector which is naturally produced in the retina. It is responsible for protection of the cell's DNA, which is the blueprint for the cell's survival. Damage to the DNA is linked to the onset and progression of macular degeneration.1

Blue light suppresses the production of melatonin in the retina, and is the catalyst for the production of drusen deposits on Bruch's membrane.2  Protecting the eyes from blue-light damage, by wearing blue-light filtering sunglasses is strongly recommended by optometrists and ophthalmologists.
