t’s time to stare a dramatic fact in its face: Americans spend more than 10 hours in front of a screen each day. That is … a lot. But, it’s not hard to see why: most office jobs involve hours in front of a laptop. We’re increasingly dependent on our smartphones for everything from breaking news to the mindless scrolling of newsfeeds. TV time – and sprawling Netflix marathons – still dominates R&R in American living rooms. As with anything done outside of moderation, excess screen time can have adverse effects. Namely, your eyes can become strained.
It’s a common enough issue that it has a name: Computer Eye Strain. Too much screen time can result in a very real vision issue. Bard Optical is helping you fight back against strained eyes by offering Clear Blue lenses from Vision Ease. Clear Blue lenses give you protection from the disruptive blue light that digital devices give off, without distorting the tint of your lenses.

Clear Protection from the Most Damaging Light Rays: Harmful ultraviolet and high-energy light is everywhere – from the highest levels found in natural sunlight and lower levels found in LED and fluorescent lighting, even digital devices. High-Energy Light (290-460 nm) has been linked to skin cancer, cataracts, macular degeneration, and other serious eye conditions. Health-conscious consumers understand the risks and are looking for an everyday lens that offers a higher level of protection.
Superior Protection in a Clear, Polycarbonate Lens: VISION EASE Clear Blue Filter Lenses block 100% UVB, UVA, and filter Blue Light to help protect eyes from harmful high-energy light.
The Best in Blue Light Protection: The high energy light protection of Clear Blue Filter Lenses is not a coating, but built into the clear, polycarbonate lens for durable protection. As the only clear lens to hold the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Approval, experts agree that Clear Blue Filter effectively protects eyes and the surrounding skin from the damaging effects of the sun.
The Effects of High Energy Light on Eyes: The sun’s rays contain several types of light that can cause permanent damage to the eyes and surrounding tissues : visible and invisible light. While invisible Ultraviolet radiation (UVA and UVB) is the most damaging, High Energy Light (HEV) or “blue light” is a visible high-energy radiation that can negatively impact eye health. Research shows that prolonged exposure to high energy light can damage the retina, iris, conjunctiva, and lead to wrinkling and premature aging of the skin around the eyes. While this damage is oftentimes irreversible, wearing lenses that block and filter damaging high energy light can help prevent damage.
Bard Optical offers Clear Blue lenses to patients to help you fight back against Computer Eye Strain. Clear Blue lenses help protect your eyes from the most damaging ultraviolet and high-energy blue light rays, while offering superior clarity and vision. A high-quality everyday lens, Clear Blue lenses block 100% of UV rays and filters three times more blue light than standard polycarbonate lenses.
