What is the blue light?
When we talk about blue light and its damaging effects, we mean the light emitted by the following devices: LCD and LED, as well as smartphones, tablets, TVs, PCs and energy-efficient lightings. The light emitted by these devices has a higher frequency and energy. Blue light, included between 380nm and 500nm, affects directly and dangerously the secretion of melatonin, interfering with the biological clock and the sleep-wake cycle (circadian rhythm).
EFFECTS ON THE EYE
Red, dry and irritated eyes, asthenopia (eyestrain).
Staring at a luminous source automatically diminishes the number of blinks and consequently the moisture of the eye causing its dryness and irritation. Staring for a prolonged time at small backlit screens strains the sight and causes asthenopia.
EFFECTS ON THE BODY
Insomnia, headache, loss of concentration.
Blue light supresses the secretion of melatonin causing insomnia. Headache is linked to an increased fatigue of the eyes. Loss of concentration is linked to the alteration of the circadian rhythm in consequence of the blocked secretion of melatonin.
Macular degeneration, myopia, and cataract.
Macular degeneration is the degeneration of the retinal eye and, as proved in several studies, can be advanced by an over exposition to blue light. The cataract is the clouding of the lens in the eye caused by ultraviolet rays and high-energy blue light.
We are born in a digital era and we know from first-hand experience the need to protect our eyes from the detrimental effects of blue light. Our mission is simple as well as important: we want to offer everyone, who uses digital devices for many hours a day, for work or leisure, the protection and comfort of a pair of glasses able to safeguard the precious complexity of the eye.
A wide collection of glasses that combine a typical Italian style with state of the art innovation. Blue light filter lenses by NOWAVE help in screening the dangerous effects of high-energy light produced by digital devices. They protect the eyes and give a unique and lasting visual comfort, even to the most extreme digital addicts.
