Protect Children from HEV Blue Light

By: Lynette Cababa

Protect your vision and protect your child’s vision from today’s increasing HEV Blue Light Exposure. Why is HEV Blue Light protection more important today than in years past? Because we are being bombarded by this HEV Blue Light more than ever and it is only going to increase.

Sources of HEV Blue Light:
  • Digital screens including TVs, computers, laptops, smartphones, video games, electronic devices
  • Fluorescent lighting
  • LED lighting
  • Sunlight
Adults are being exposed to this blue light more than ever but our children are being exposed to a higher degree of it beginning at a younger age than we did and to a much greater degree. TheraBlue UV HEV lenses provide this important protection from the dangers of UV rays and HEV blue light. Dermatologists have been highly successful in pointing out the dangers of UV and the need for skin protection. Don’t your critically important eyes and your children’s eyes deserve protection? This bad blue light can contribute to tired eyes, poorer night vision, loss of sharp, contrast vision, light sensitivity and glare. Studies are also showing it can contribute to risk of onset cataracts, macular degeneration, problematic sleep patterns, headaches,
focus and behavioral issues.
