Frequently asked questions
Software to reduce blue light is a great aid. Although downsides of the software are – you tend to only turn them on in the evening when the sunsets, so what about blue light emitted from screens during the day which causes eye strain? Furthermore, the orange colour created by the software can be overpowering and ruin image quality, stopping you doing work or enjoying viewing movies and images. Ocushield screen protectors have far better transparency than software allowing you to have a better viewing experience while limiting the amount of blue light emitted. See an article published in Digital Trends on why we’re better here.
Ocushield screen protectors block 90% of blue light between wavelengths 380nm to 420nm and up to 35% blue light from 420 to 500nm. Ocushield glasses and clip-on lenses block 95% of blue light between wavelengths 380nm to 420nm and up to 40% from 420 to 500nm. This is a large amount to reduce the spike in blue light wavelengths causing eye strain and sleep disturbance.
We have developed Ocushield products with user experience at the forefront so image clarity is not affected while protecting you from harmful blue light.
