In an era dominated by screens, protecting our eyes from the hazardous effects of blue light is more important than ever. Zenni offers two innovative solutions to combat digital eye strain: the standard Blokz® lens and the advanced Blokz®+ Tints. Let’s delve into the differences between these two options to help you make an informed choice for your eye health.

Understanding the Basics: Blokz® vs. Blokz®+ Tints

The standard Blokz® lens effectively blocks blue light up to 420 nm, providing a solid defense against digital eye strain. However, Zenni’s Blokz®+ Tints take it a step further by specifically targeting blue light up to 455nm—the range where most blue light from digital devices peaks. This advanced solution offers enhanced protection for your eyes during prolonged screen time.

Research-Backed Protection

In a 2020 study published in the Cell Death & Disease Journal, researchers underscored the hazards posed by certain wavelengths of blue light to retinal cells, specifically those falling between 390-450 nm. The study revealed that blue light between 390-450 nm caused a sharp decline in cell viability in retinal cells, with the greatest toxicity between 425-455 nm. To counteract this risk, Blokz® lenses effectively filter blue light up to 420 nm, while Blokz®+ Tints offer extended protection up to 455 nm. Both lenses help to safeguard retinal cells from the hazardous effects of blue light. To learn more about this study, click here.

Unlocking Ultra Protection: The Science Behind Blokz® and Blokz®+ Tints Lenses

Blokz® lenses have specific blue light blocking monomers embedded into the lens material, which filter out or block a portion of the blue light spectrum. This process reduces the intensity of blue light that reaches the eyes, effectively minimizing blue light exposure without compromising visual clarity. Blokz®+ Tints additionally includes an extra blue light reflective coating applied to the lenses, providing an added layer of defense against blue light exposure. Together, these features offer ultra protection, helping to minimize the risk of digital eye strain and maintain visual comfort during extended periods of screen use.
