Blue Light Glasses, Kids and digital Devices.

Digital devices are here to stay. Whilst you may encourage your children to spend time outdoors and away from screens, digital devices are an essential item as part of every child’s everyday learning, entertainment and communication. All of these digital devices are exposing your children to Harmful Blue Light.

What does harmful blue light mean for children’s eyes?

We’ve all heard about harmful blue light, but what is it and where does it come from? In short blue light is a high-energy, high-frequency light in the violet/blue band from 400 to 450nm in the visible spectrum. Blue light is emitted for all our screen devices, think TV, Laptop, Mobile Phone, Gaming Consoles and fluorescent lighting. 

In addition to harmful Blue Light, the glare from digital device screens can also cause stress to little eyes, causing digital eye strain and many other side effects. Winston Bentley has created specialised crystal anti-blue light lenses with an additional anti-reflective coating that also helps reduce glare and provides better contrast on the screen. Giving your children full protection when it comes to glare and blue light.

  • Eyestrain
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
