One’s vision may change as we mature, But that should not get in the way of how we live!
Presbyopia is a gradual and natural condition within the eye that reduces its ability to focus at near.
This is usually noticeable around your 40s, where you have to hold your smartphone further to see more clearly, and near tasks become less comfortable and more tiring.

Blue / High Energy Visible (HEV) Light
Our natural Sunlight contains visible light rays as well as invisible light rays.
Invisible Ultraviolet (UV) rays is harmful to both our eyes and skin with overexposure. Therefore, we wear sunglasses, hats and other accessories to protect our body from them.
Visible light rays contain red, orange, yellow, green and blue light rays. Blue light having the shortest wavelength ranging from 390 to 500nm, has the highest energy. This means blue light is able to pass through the cornea and lens to the retina and potentially damages our eye structures and cause eye diseases such as cataract, age-related macular degeneration.
When we are outdoors, Sunlight is the biggest source of blue light. When we indoors, we are still exposed to blue light.
Computer screens, tablets, smartphones, LED TV screens, LED lights emit blue light.
That’s why they say, blue light is everywhere.
A little is good, but not too much
Some degree of blue light exposure in the day time is necessary for our well-being. Research has shown that it regulates circadian rhythm (wake and sleep cycle) and boost alertness.
However, Long exposure to blue light can lead to eye strain, eye fatigue and potentially eye diseases.
Make your Lens work for your eyes
With the increase in screen time, we are now exposed to blue light more than ever. Blue light lenses block out harmful blue light while allowing beneficial light to pass through, offering excellent visual comfort and great eye protection.
Amazing visual comfort, Maximum UV protection
