High energy visible (HEV) light:
The violet and blue portions of the visible light spectrum (high energy light with wavelengths from 380 to 500 nm). Some researchers feel long-term exposure to HEV light may contribute to macular degeneration. For this reason, many eyecare professionals recommend wearing sunglasses that block HEV light as well as UV radiation.
Coppertone Polarized Prescription Sun Lenses block 100% of harmful UVA and UVB rays and offer more protection from High-Energy Visible (HEV) light than ordinary sun lenses, an important way to help keep eyes healthy into old age.
Coppertone Polarized Prescription Sun Lenses provide added protection against High Energy Visual (HEV) light, aka, “blue light”. But unlike “blue blockers” Coppertone lenses are designed to block harmful UV light and filter out the blue light spectrum, so colors remain clear and true, so stoplights and other important visual information won’t be hard to see.
It’s old news that overexposure to the sun is extremely harmful to our skin. But many people are still unaware of just how damaging the sun can be to eyesight.
Over time, exposure to the sun’s harmful HEV and UV rays without proper protection can contribute to many long term problems, including: cataracts, macular degeneration (most common cause of vision loss in individuals over 55), premature skin aging and cancer of skin on the eyelids.
The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends this product as an effective UV filter for the eyes and surrounding skin. Meets AOA specifications for blockage of UVA and UVB rays.
Coppertone Polarized Prescription Sun Lenses offer premium eye protection, visual performance and comfort for the entire family. It is estimated that 80% of lifetime exposure to UV occurs by age 18, so it’s important that parents teach children how to enjoy fun in the sun safely.
