Your eye is a powerful but fragile organ. And, like the rest of our body, its health must be preserved. Daylight and sunlight are good for our psychological and physical balance. However, we must all take care against the potential harm in certain rays.
The harmful effects of UV rays on our eyes are well-known. In the short term, they can cause temporary discomfort: glare, blurred vision, inflammation, photokeratitis. But they are above all responsible for long-term irreversible damage, as they contribute to the premature aging of the eye and development of premature cataracts.
A part of blue light is beneficial for health, in particular for regulating our biological clock. But part of the blue light spectrum, ‘blue-violet’ light is potentially harmful to the eye. Emitted naturally by the sun, these rays are also through artificial light sources such as lighting fixtures or screens (televisions, computers, etc.)
Children and people aged over 45 are most susceptible to its harmful effects. There are specific new lenses with the technical features that allow selective filtering a part of this blue-violet light.
