Why do I need BluTech Lenses?
With the upsurge in electronic devices, your eyes are exposed to increasing levels of harmful light spectrums. BluTech Lenses protect your eyes from the dangers of high levels of UV rays and harmful, high-energy blue light for a lifetime of vision preservation. Blue light may also aggrevate your Dry Eye condition after hours of exposure from computer screens or other electronic devices.
Who should wear BluTech Lenses?
Everyone interested in preserving lifelong healthy vision should wear BluTech Lenses and those who are at high-risk of macular degeneration will especially benefit from wearing BluTech Lenses. Anyone with Dry Eye Syndrome could also benefit from wearing BluTech Lenses.
What are the dangers of blue light?
Blue light causes the gradual oxidation and deterioration of the macula over your lifetime, leaving our eyes exposed and susceptible to developing macular degeneration. BluTech Lenses provide a protective barrier by directly infusing the perfect amount of ocular lens pigment and melanin into the lenses. This patented technology allows for optimal protection without altering or distorting color perception.
What are the sources of blue light?
You encounter blue light in everyday activities. Fluorescent lighting, electronic screens (phones, tablets, computers, TVs, etc.), and the sun emit damaging high-energy blue light.
What is macular degeneration?
Macular degeneration is the progressive deterioration of the macula and is the leading cause of visual impairment. Hastened by blue light exposure, macular degeneration deteriorates healthy cells within the macula, affecting your central frame of vision. This loss of vision affects reading, writing, driving, color perception, and other cognitive functions. Serious complications can lead to blindness.
Who is at risk?
Those with light-colored hair, eyes, and skin as well as people over the age of fifty are at high risk due to insufficient amounts of protective pigments in the eye. People who have undergone cataract removal surgery are also at high risk.

BluTech lenses are really superb for athletics fanatics by means of supplying high performance and high definition vision.
