You put suntan lotion on your skin when you go out in the sun for the day, right? Well if you believe that suntan lotion protects your skin from harmful UV, you should be putting on blue light-blocking eyeglass lenses when at the computer! Blue light is the wavelength that is adjacent to UVA, they are literally separated by a few nanometers. The only difference is that UV is invisible and blue light is visible. So think about putting on Crizal Prevencia lenses, “sunscreen for your eyes”, next time you are at the computer.
