What is blue light?

Approximately one third of all visible light is blue light, a high-energy light that has a number of biological effects, including on the eye. Blue light penetrates all the way to the retina and can damage the light-sensitive cells and can increase the risk of age-related macular degeneration.

Blue light also tends to be slightly defocused compared to other visible light, which can create a violet-blue blur that contributes to chromatic aberration, when wavelengths of colour are focused at different points, resulting in a mismatch where the colours do not combine as they should. Chromatic aberration especially affects visual quality and comfort when looking at digital screens, such as computers, laptops and smartphones. This phenomenon is a contributing factor to eyestrain, a common challenge for living in the digital age.

Although lower-energy blue light is necessary as it impacts our general wellbeing, helps boost alertness, memory and cognitive function, too much exposure to these light rays can suppress the production of melatonin in our body, a hormone that not only promotes restful sleep but also plays a vital role in slowing the progress of cancer, diabetes and other diseases.

What can I do to protect my eyes?

There are different ways to protect your eyes from harmful high-energy blue light. Keeping in mind, that the main source of blue light is the sun, quality sunglasses are key to protect your eyes outdoors. The latest photochromic lenses are also able to reduce daily blue light exposure from sunlight.

An all-around solution against blue light is a special anti-reflective coating, called Satin Blue Coating, that filters out harmful high-energy wavelengths, providing maximum comfort and protection for your eyes both indoors and outdoors.

How does blue light filter work?

At CR Surfacing Laboratories, our coating facility incorporates state-of-the-art equipment, latest technologies and premium quality materials to offer the best performing and most reliable coatings on the market.

Our Satin Blue Coating is dual compaction coating which ensures long term reliability. delivers premium performance by incorporating three proprietary process technologies:

The dual stage index matched hard coat base layer significantly increases durability, and provides a strong foundation for the AR stack layer. Created for the Aeronautical defence industry, the double compaction AR stack layers are specially formulated in sequence to reduce glare and create negative energy to repel dust. The super hydrophobic topcoat process provides the ultimate in lens protection. that enhances durability and provides superior scratch resistance. The super hydrophobic topcoat also incorporates a new process called Aqua Repel™ that not only drives water away from the lens surface but produces Anti Fog properties, making the final product exceptionally easy to clean.

Satin Blue protects your eyes by selectively filtering light, to comfort your eyes whilst looking at a screen and still providing excellent clarity. Satin Blue lenses are scratch resistant, smudge and water resistant and dust repellent. Ideal for everyday use, no matter the environment .
