And with this usage comes an increased exposure to blue light, which can be emitted by LED computer screens, tablets, smartphones, and other digital devices, at higher levels than naturally emitted by the sun. This has become a growing concern for health and sight, across all sectors and at every age, since blue light exposure now starts earlier than before.
To combat the negative impacts of blue light and reduce the risk of these various health concerns, Bollé Safety’s new Blue Light line was developed with the goal to make wearers’ eyes feel more comfortable and less strained.
Global brand with a heritage of over 130 years, Bollé Safety’s first series of glasses and goggles for industrial and tactical protection were launched in 1950. Bollé Safety has been built on a genuine desire to use the best available technology and innovation to create sustainable and quality products that people love to wear over the years. The company has earned a reputation with those who know its products for high quality, because Bollé Safety constantly refine its trademark combination of performance, fit, and comfort.
Bollé Safety’s new product range was created with the most advanced embedded blue blocker lens technology within the mass of polycarbonate lenses, Problu 420, combined with a blue anti-reflective coating applied onto the inside of the lens. This filtering technology absorbs 82% of harmful blue light up to 445nm and 100% of harmful blue light up to 420nm.
The Problu technology is available in plano, readers and soon in prescription glasses to improve both visual comfort and optical clarity. The Blue light product range currently consists of 19 different pairs of glasses for different types of wearers, (with prescription glasses set to be available in May 2022).
As screen time is part of everyone’s daily routines, Blue Light by Bollé Safety is for all of us playing interconnection between professionals and private lives. We know that PPE is no longer an option, that’s why we are providing protective glasses tailored to everyone’s needs.
At Bollé Safety, we believe that beyond safety concerns, blue light protective glasses are about improved physical and mental wellbeing, sharpening skills and allowing for accelerated decision-making. It’s not just something that covers your eyes, it’s what happens behind them. It’s not a headset, it’s a mindset.
Blue light lenses guarantee a better product service life and prevent workers, screeners and kids’ vision from being damaged by harmful blue light. Which is precisely why we make our products; so that anyone, adults or kids, can carry on being great at what they do.
