Why blue light blocking glasses?

When you go out you wear sunglasses to protect yourself from UV rays, harmful rays for our eyes and our skin. But do you know that UV rays are not the only ones that are harmful to your eyes?

Blue light, which is part of the visible spectrum of light, is also harmful to your eye health . This blue light is present under your roof, at work, it is strongly emitted by digital devices, LEDs...

On the visible light spectrum, blue light rays have the shortest wavelength but provide the most energy. We are all exposed to the blue light of the sun's rays and also with new technologies to the blue light of computer screens, televisions, tablets all illuminated by LEDs!

In addition, for economic reasons, these sources emit a peak of blue light around 435 nm. The proximity of our eyes to these screens, the cumulative effect of hours of viewing these screens poses a real threat to your eye health . Due to their short wavelength, blue-violet light rays can pass through the cornea to reach the retina. When these rays hit the retina for long periods of time, blue light can damage retinal cells and accelerate eye aging.

The majority of us spend many hours in front of the various screens, this makes our eyes more susceptible to visual fatigue or eye stress . With Cool Blue anti-light glasses , blue light is blocked, your eyes are safe. Varionet's Cool Blue anti-blue light glasses have an anti-reflective anti-blue light treatment that prevents the passage of short wavelengths and UV.

You can find this treatment on anti-blue light reading glasses for presbyopia after 45 years old, on anti-blue light glasses for 18-40 year olds.

Many traumas, shocks or eye injuries are counted each year and about 50% of them occur at home.

Be safe also at home:

For most of us, safety glasses or goggles are synonymous with the workplace; we think of certain professions in the chemical, agricultural, steel industries… and many mundane everyday tasks, such as mowing the lawn, the use of household products, seem to us without danger.

A few tips to protect your eyes and those of your loved ones:

  • Use of protective glasses : wear standardized safety glasses appropriate to your visual needs and the tasks to be performed. These must protect you from wood chips, dust, chemicals, projectiles... and offer you a clear, sharp and precise vision. They can be solar or corrective for local work.
  • For tinkering, undertaking work, make sure you have good lighting
  • Remove debris before construction sites: for example, remove stones before mowing, these can be dangerous for you and for the people around, especially small children.
  • Properly store dangerous products and tools, taking care that they are not accessible to children.
  • Wash your hands well after using household products, phytosanitary products, etc.

For easy and comfortable protection, we offer Varionet Safety glasses equipped with anti-blue light lenses or decreasing lenses for those over 40 . These protective glasses meet the EN 166 FT standard, they are made of polycarbonate and their lenses resist the impact of a steel ball 6 mm in diameter and 0.86 g launched at a speed of 45 m/s. Varionet Safety Pro goggles have an additional feature: high performance surface anti-fog .

Let's not forget that we only have 2 eyes and that 80% of the information in our daily life comes from sight.

In a few words to end:

Always wear protective glasses for DIY, gardening, etc.

Prohibit the youngest from dangerous games, crossbows, ball guns...

In case of trauma, consult an ophthalmologist urgently and do not touch the damaged eye.
