The Technology Behind
Velocity Self-Tinting Lenses

If you wish to demonstrate the reaction of Velocity lenses to the patient you will need to take the lenses outside. Do NOT use light boxes from other manufacturers as this will  temporarily distort the color of the lens.

Protection from blue light (HEV) with Velocity Brown

What is high-energy visible light (HEV)?

A portion of the blue visible light spectrum that helps regulate sleep. Recently, it has also been linked to retinal diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration. The majority of blue light comes from the sun, but some digital devices also emit it.

How can Velocity Brown help?

The highest concentration of HEV comes from the sun and activated Velocity lenses will block 85%. Unactivated lenses will also block 15% indoors as well, without distorting colors as other blue-blocking ARs do.

Velocity brown is a warm, dark color and may appear gray on first glance. To ensure lenses are brown, take outside on a white background with gray lenses. Click here for picture of gray and brown Velocity.
