Blue-Violet is a portion of the visible spectrum known as High Energy Visible Light (HEV). HEV is light with wavelengths between 390-500 nm. Scientific evidence has indicated there are benefits to HEV exposure, but there are potential risks as well. This is known as the ‘Dualism’ of blue light.
The sun is the main source of HEV, but sources are also found indoors. Many modern bulbs, such as flourescent and LED bulbs, as well as all digital screens emit Blue-Violet light.
Some research has indicated that Blue-Violet light may lead to damage to the retinal cells
With distinct properties to reduce overexposure to the potentially harmful wavelengths of HEV shorter than 440 nm, while keeping the transmission level above 460 nm (regulation of the Circadian Rhythm)
The blue-violet and the bluish rest reflex fit nicely together without compromising cosmetic appearance
A hydrophobic layer to repel water and oleophobic layer to repels oils create a super-slick surface to make lenses easier to clean. These coatings are a perfect compliment to the ZEISS family of cleaning products.
Lenses stay clean longer with an anti-static later to repel dirt and dust.
Look for a special ZEISS Man Activity Book and Back-to-School kit to arrive in the last week of July!
