According to The Nielsen Company1, the average adult now spends more than 9 hours per day on screens. According to The Vision Council, people normally blink 18 times per minute on average. Using digital screens causes blink rates to drop, resulting in dry, itchy or burning eyes, the symptoms most commonly associated with digital eye strain. HEV blue light reaches deeper into the eye which may damage the retina2. Additional research also points to a link between HEV blue light and long-term vision issues including age-related macular degeneration3 and cataracts, leading causes of blindness.
As we use devices more, our exposure to HEV blue light increases. HEV blue light has been shown to contribute to digital eye strain which can cause dry and irritated eyes, sleep disruption and loss, blurred vision, and premature eye aging, especially in children.
Glass+ VisionGuard filters harmful HEV blue light from your device screen with a protective EyeSafe layer while providing the powerful impact protection for which InvisibleShield is known. Featuring Ion Matrix™ technology, Glass+ VisionGuard is strengthened at the molecular level and preserves the glass-like feel of your device screen, offering edge-to-edge protection with remarkable touch sensitivity and image clarity.
“We use mobile devices in nearly every facet of our lives, whether texting with loved ones, responding to a work email, browsing social media or consuming entertainment. These levels of screen time can take a toll on our eyes,” said Steve Bain, general manager for InvisibleShield. “InvisibleShield Glass+ VisionGuard is specifically designed to filter harmful blue light, all while maintaining your screen’s color and image clarity.”
Glass+ VisionGuard joins a full suite of InvisibleShield screen protectors available for iPhone, including the all-new InvisibleShield Glass+ Anti-Glare, featuring a matte finish that blocks light from reflecting off of device screens and a smudge-resistant coating that keeps devices clear of fingerprints.
