Penn Avenue Eyewear (“PAE”) is pleased to announce the release of a new lens option, available on their website. Designed to prevent Digital Eye Strain (DES) and create a more pleasurable viewing experience on computers, tablets, smartphones, and other devices, the lenses include a special coating that reflects and filters harmful blue light and reduces glare to improve clarity and contrast.
PAE offers their computer lenses in both plano (non-powered) and plus-powers for those who need additional magnification when viewing a computer screen. Unlike the yellow tinted computer glasses being sold today, PAE’s lenses are clear and utilize a special coating that reflects and filters the harmful blue light without distorting colors or images, making them ideal for designers, photographers, and others who rely on color accuracy.
PAE Creative Director Caitlin Northup comments, “Most of the computer eyewear sold today makes use of yellow lens technology and many find them unattractive. We wanted to introduce a line reflecting current style and aesthetics while stressing the importance of protecting your eyes.” Ms. Northup also added, “Our new computer eyewear option is perfect for the individual who wears contact lenses or has 20/20 vision. By simply wearing a pair of PAE’s computer glasses while at work or school, you can reduce eyestrain, fatigue, and other vision problems associated with DES.”
These new lenses work to protect eyes from High Energy Visible light, commonly referred to as “blue light.” This type of light is emitted by digital devices, as well as the fluorescent and Compact Fluorescent Lighting (CFL) present in most schools and offices. Penn Avenue Eyewear’s computer lenses reflect and filter this harmful light, making it easier and more comfortable to use your digital devices on a daily basis.
