Please note, this Twitter Party has been rescheduled to April 23 in light of the Boston Marathon Tragedy.
We live in a digital world. I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t own a smartphone. Even kids have smartphones these days. Then there are computers and tablets – the digital world is everywhere!
Hoya Lenses continues to forge forward in the quest to make sure that you and your kids eye’s are protected against the strain of computer and screen time wear and tear!
Our eyes were designed for us to use as hunters and gatherers. Now we hunt and gather on Google! We are not fully equipped to handle all of the demands placed on our eyes by today’s technological devices.
And our eyes pay the price.
I have learned a lot about the price our eyes pay for all that screen time both from working with HOYA. Several studies as well as data from OSHA and ISO, all show there are hazards associated with the High Energy Visible (HEV) Blue Light portion of the light spectrum. Blue light, including HEV Blue Light, is emitted from hand-held devices such as smart phones and tablets. Symptoms as diverse as sleep disorders in children and adolescents, headaches, blurred vision, and fatigue can be due to exposure to blue light radiating from hand-held digital equipment.
HOYA has developed and launched RechargeTM, an anti-reflective lens treatment that reflects the harmful Blue Light away from the eyes. HOYA’s new Recharge anti-reflective treatment reflects the portion of blue light emitted from back-lit, hand-held devices that is “bad” and ensures the portion of blue light we need for optimal contrast and other health benefits is allowed to pass through. In a sign of our times, studies show many children, and people in their 20s who grew up with hand-held devices as part of their lives, are spending as much as half their day staring at a screen barely an arm’s length away. This generation is most certainly overexposed to blue light emitted from their smart phones and tablets and suffering unnecessarily from fatigue.
Do you or your children wear glasses and need protection from the harmful hues of a digital screen? Then join us for the #HOYALENSES Twitter Party April 16, 2013 at 1pm EST/ 12pm CST and have some fun learning all about protecting those eyes!
