What’s that all about?
Blue light is everywhere. It’s in sunlight. But it’s especially common in digital devices: iPhones, laptops, tablets. All those gizmos.
It’s a modern-day menace
Blue light penetrates your retinas, giving your brain a cue that it’s time to wake up and seize the day. But extended exposure to blue light can have a significant impact on our wellbeing – headaches, eye irritation and fatigue are all common symptoms of blue light exposure.
Plus, by restricting the production of melatonin (a chemical which helps us sleep), blue light disrupts your natural sleep cycles causing you to feel lethargic, irritable and unproductive. Yikes!
That’s why we created Ocushield!
Ocushield is the world’s first and only medically-rated blue light blocking screen protector.
Developed by qualified optometrists, our screen protectors for smartphones and tablets effectively block up to 90% of harmful blue light emissions. They’re made from super-strong tempered glass with a scratch-resistant oleophobic coating, so they’ll live with you through thick and thin. And unlike apps and ‘night mode’ settings, Ocushield does this without discolouring your screen.
The result is a crystal-clear display and a healthier, more productive you!
Why Not Just Turn on the Built-In iPhone Blue Light Filter?
iPads have gone from being a luxury to a necessity. From working to catching up on social media, this handy device can do it all. If you own an iPad you will more than likely know about the built-in blue light filter. In fact, iPads and iPhones both feature what is called "Night Shift," which changes the colour temperature of your screen, making it much less stimulating. This is great to reduce and neutralise blue light, so you are not being exposed to the harmful rays that promote the adverse side effects (damaging your retinas and disrupting your sleep and wake cycle). Although, your screen will now appear with an ugly orange glow.
Too Much Orange?
This feature may work well at night or when you’re planning to unwind, but it’s not practical during the day if you’re doing colour sensitive work or need more light. Unless orange is your favourite colour, you’re likely to keep Night Shift off until the evening, keeping yourself exposed to blue light throughout the day. Having it turned on ultimately diminishes your screen quality. When you use the built in options you have to make a tradeoff… Enter Ocushield and the Anti-blue Light Screen Protector, now you never have to choose between screen quality and blue light ray shielding ever again.
The Ocushield Blue Light Filter - The Best Screen Protector for the iPad
Designed by Optometrists in the UK, Ocushield is home to the only medically rated anti blue light screen protector on the market. It allows you to get the most out of your iPad day and night, without worrying about blue light rays damaging your health. With eyes being one of the most sensitive parts of the body, it’s important to keep those peepers protected. With Ocushield, you can do just that without turning your screen orange! All you have to do is fit the filter over the screen of your iPad Pro, Air or Mini and you are ready to go.
How to Know If Your Filter Is Working
With any blue light filter product, we want to look at the blue light which is absorbed and at what wavelengths. It is important to seek clarification via an official spectrometer report from a lab. No other test with a gimmicky blue light card can do the job.
Blue light that is most harmful to the eyes is found between between 370-455nm. It can be damaging both in the short-term (eye strain & headaches) and long-term (eye diseases such as macular degeneration). Therefore, the filter should be limiting sufficient levels of blue light within these wavelengths of light. Blue light from screens is only emitted after 405nm, therefore a screen filter should limit harmful light from this point onwards. But for LED lighting and the sun, other protection from waves of 370-455nm is also needed.
