LIVING IN A DIGITAL ERA: WATCHING THE WORLD THROUGH A SCREEN
Desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones and other digital devices have become our daily routine. Furthermore, LED lighting is all around us (LED TVs, laptop displays, mobile cameras, automotive, aviation, architectural, street lighting. Stage lights, flashlights, camera flashes… you name it).
Because of their wide spread use and increasing popularity, we are gradually being exposed to more and more sources of artificial Blue Light and for longer periods of time.
THE CATCH: YOUR EYES CAN'T HANDLE IT.
Our eyes are not evolved to handle artificial Blue Light. Thus, prolonged exposure to it can cause Digital Eye Strain syndrome.
Digital eyestrain is a syndrome with serious symptoms that can lead to sleep disruption and circadian rhythm disturbance symptoms.
THE SPOTLIGHT ON BLUE LIGHT
Blue Light is actually everywhere. Sunlight is the main source of Blue Light. This, natural Blue Light, is essential for our well-being. Research has shown that natural Blue Light boosts alertness and reaction times, helps memory and cognitive function, elevates mood and increases the feeling of happiness. Also, natural Blue Light is very important in regulating circadian rhythm — the body’s natural wakefulness and sleep cycle. However, natural Blue Light is not the only blue light we are exposed to.
Modern way of life exposes our eyes to artificial Blue Light, for which we are not biologically evolved to confront. Blue Light artificial sources include digital screens (TVs, computers, laptops, smart phones and tablets), electronic devices, and fluorescent and LED lighting.
STEAMЯAYS®, EYE CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE
STEAMЯAYS, solely uses SANOL Blue Light Guard Lens Technology, which actively and selectively filters Blue Light radiation emitted by digital device monitors, while blocking Ultra Violet A and B radiation.
SANOL Blue Light Guard technology, unlike other competitive products, allows most of natural Blue light, but when it detects artificial Blue Light it automatically triggers a chemical reaction which blocks Blue Light transmittance. This way, most of the beneficial Blue Light will reach the eye when you are wearing your STEAMЯAYS outdoors, but when hazardous artificial Blue Light is detected, then SANOLBlue Light Guard Lenses will block up to 73% of that radiation, which is the highest performance achieved by all competitive products.
This way, while STEAMЯAYS® reduces digital eye strain symptoms, when it comes to outdoors use, they will perform as your everyday lenses. That’s why STEAMЯAYS® is the only 24-hour use computer glasses. SANOL® lenses improve the contrast perception and they offer a relaxed and crisp vision when we you are using digital devices, or watching your favorite TV show.
Cool? And it’s getting better…
STEAMЯAYS® combines SANOL lens technology with a modern eyewear collection made by proprietary materials, such as Uberplast1™, Uberplast2™. STEAMЯAYS frames and sunglasses material is the latest in the evolution of eyewear. All frames are stylish yet tough, with no need for adjustments, guarantees to hold its’ shape for ever.
