Extensive exposure to blue light can lead to tired, dry eyes, eye strain, insufficient visual contrast, and headaches. It increases risk of macular degeneration, retinal disease and can cause a disruption of the sleep cycle.
Children are particularly vulnerable since the lens of their eyes are more transparent, allowing in more blue light from TV screens and tablets.
To help with the side effects cause by extended blue light exposure, Roosevelt Vision offers Shamir Blue Zero™, a lens treatment providing protection from the potential harm of natural and artificial light sources present in our everyday lives, from TV and computer screens, smartphones, tablets, and more
