ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect. For people who are often indoors and find the light emitted by LED light bulbs, TVs or computer monitors makes them tired or uncomfortable.
Modern light sources and displays emit a disproportionately high amount of blue light. While the human body requires a certain amount of blue light to control the sleep/wake cycle, too much of the 'wrong' kind of blue light can pose a health risk and cause eye diseases. Lenses with a ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect lens coating feature a special filter which ensures comfortable vision even when there is a high level of blue light present.
Smartphones, LED light bulbs, televisions, computer monitors, e-readers and tablets emit high levels of blue light. The emission of large quantities of blue light is one cause of digital eye strain. The DuraVision® BlueProtect blue light filter reduces portions of the blue light spectrum from reaching your eyes. Many eyeglass wearers with DuraVision® BlueProtect report greater visual comfort thanks to this coating.
Sunglass lenses or self-tinting lenses with ZEISS PhotoFusion feature 100% UV protection when you’re outdoors in the sun. An optional enhancement for indoors: DuraVision® BlueProtect. This lens coating also filters out blue light with non-tinted lenses.
Blue-violet light reaches the eye in different ways. It's a component of sunlight, but is also emitted by mobile phone displays, computer monitors and televisions as well as LED and energy-saving light bulbs – at different intensities.
UV is always around. Even on cloudy days. UV radiation represents a health risk for your eyes but as also to the eye surroundings. Do you always protect your eyes when you are outdoors? Now all clear lenses from ZEISS come with full UV protection!
The special properties of the lens filter out harmful UV rays and provide your eyes with lasting protection.
A pair of glasses for every situation: these self-tinting lenses also work as sunglasses. They darken in seconds and clear up in just a few minutes. And of course they feature 100% UV protection.
Here's one colleague you can always count on – also available with DuraVision® BlueProtect: ZEISS Officelens is specially optimized for your computer monitor at work. They make the average working day easier on your eyes and ensure that you enjoy better vision.
Burning or overtired eyes, headaches and neck pains: frequent use of a smartphone, e-reader or tablet often results in digital eye strain. Digital Lens can help. It supports your eyes and ensures more comfortable vision through a specially optimized near zone. Together with the DuraVision® BlueProtect coating, this combination prevents eye strain – providing you with better vision.
1. Take a moment to look off into the distance regularly – in particular when working at the computer or when using a tablet or smartphone frequently.
2. Blue light controls our biorhythm. Studies show that blue light in particular is very important for regulating the melatonin level in the human body and thus for controlling a person's sleep/wake cycle and well-being. That's why you should consult your eye care professional on how to best filter out blue light.
3. Too much blue light (such as when reading on your tablet) and bright artificial light in the evening are not advisable because both can cause insomnia. Keep this rule of thumb in mind: in the evening, use soft light and avoid very bright light.
4. Daylight contains a lot of blue light. According to different studies, prolonged exposure to high-energy blue light can damage the retina, increasing the risk of macular degeneration over time. The best solution: sunglass lenses with 100% UVA and UVB protection, or even self-tinting lenses from ZEISS.
