Prevention is better than cure. We all take our vision for granted, but our daily activities can have a long term affect on us, our children’s vision and eye health. Being in a position to maintain good vision and great eye health is always a plus!
Do you use your digital device in the evening or before bed to browse the web or read an e-book? Chances are your sleep is being affected. Imagine being able to sleep with ease, feel energized and fresh for the following day in the morning.
We hold our iPhone’s and iPad’s at a closer distance than TV’s and computers, therefore we’re more likely to encounter eyestrain and fatigue by the end of the day. Keep the same fresh feeling as the morning, in the evening when you’re ready to head home or head out.
What exactly is Ocushield?
Developed by Eye Care Professionals & supported by City University London.
Ocushield is a Blue Light screen filter that protects our eyes when we are looking at our digital devices. All modern digital devices produce harmful Blue Light. This short wavelength light is known to cause eye strain and fatigue, as well as to increase the likelihood of eye diseases. It also suppresses the hormone melatonin, disturbing our sleep-wake cycle, and the production of the protective pigment melanin. Ocushield protects your eyes and sleep by cutting out the Blue Light transmittance, but allowing the non-harmful light through the screen to give you clear and normal images.
