Protection lenses for spectacles are much-needed today than ever, all thanks to our degrading lifestyles. Wondering what we are talking about here? Recall how you spend most of your day and you’ll have the answer.
Our days revolve around digital devices and the blue light emitted from them. Smartphones, laptops, television, tablets, smartwatches, etc. take a big chunk of our day. And when we get outdoors, the sun with its fierce intensity welcomes us with the harsh ultraviolet rays. All thanks to global warming which is also a result of our modern lifestyle.
But where are our eyes at fault? Why should they be treated with the harmful blue light and UV light? That too, day in and day out, almost every other moment? It’s time we start treating our eyes the way they treat us. For that reason, we bring to you protection lenses for spectacles that help protect your eyes against all kinds of evils, be it the sun, glare or blue light.
3 types of protection lenses for spectacles
- Transition lenses
Many people develop sensitivity towards bright light like that of the sun. Sometimes this Photophobia is due to diseases like cataract, conjunctivitis, meningitis, migraine etc. This sensitivity does not only bring with it some pain but also at times life long discomfort if not treated.
Transition or photochromic lenses are the protection lenses for spectacles that you need in this case. These lenses are originally clear but tend to absorb UV rays when in the sun which changes their tint to dark. The change happens in accordance with the UV light present. The higher the intensity of the sun, the higher the darkness in the tints. That’s how they save you bright light from the sun.
Don’t worry, the tints of these glasses turn back to their original state i.e., clear when you get back indoors. This way photochromic lenses also save you from the hassle of handling two pairs, one of sunglasses and the other of regular spectacles if you tend to move in and outdoors quite often.
- Lenses with anti-UV and anti-glare coatings
Now bright light is not just a cause of the sun, it can be through artificial lighting in your room, street lights, and headlights on the road as well. Also, UV light is not only present outdoors, but it is indoors as well, thanks to our windows which let it in and artificial lighting again. So, how to avoid this discomfort and which protection lenses for spectacles can help?
Lenses with anti-UV and anti-glare coatings are the answer. These block all the irritating reflective light and ultraviolet light, keeping your eyes protected even indoors and at nights on the roads.
- X-blue lenses
These are lenses made using advanced technology to block blue light coming from all kinds of digital devices and artificial lighting. Some people also call them digital eye strain glasses. These not only help you avoid the eye strains, blurry vision, dry eyes, and headaches but also bring you a good night’s sleep.
That’s because when you let blue light enter your eyes sometimes before bed, the body gets a signal that it’s day time and not yet the time to sleep. This signal stops the production of melatonin in the body. It’s the sleep hormone. With no melatonin, the quality of your sleep diminishes at a great extent which also ultimately hampers your sleep cycle forever. Thus, X-blue lenses used in blue light glasses make sure to keep the blue light away and keep the health of your eyes and body intact.
