Blue blocking lenses, which one to choose?
Blue blocking has become an important part of our everyday life. Cocoons fitover sunglasses, clip-ons, and flip-ups in polarized yellow and non-polarized lemon lens tints are designed to block blue light; enhance contrast and reduce glare in low light conditions.
The blue blocking abilities of the yellow lenses varies. Although each of these lens tints offer 100% UVA/B protection, we’ve specifically engineered them to meet different needs.
The polarized yellow tint has a much lower light transmission at 27%. These lenses are intended for use as a sunglass in less intense lighting conditions. Yellow is a long time standard in ski and shooting sports, and provides excellent depth perception.
The non-polarized lemon tint has a very bright 86% light transmission. This maximizes available visible light while increasing contrast to improve visual acuity; making it appropriate for use indoors or at night. In addition, the lemon filter eliminates eyestrain caused by artificial lights.
