Understanding EyeQLenz

EyeQLenz is a revolutionary lens technology that offers a multi-faceted approach to eye protection. It filters out harmful ultraviolet rays (UV), infrared radiation (IR), and high-energy blue light (HEV), safeguarding your eyes from potential damage and discomfort. Let’s delve into the benefits of each component:

Filtering UV Light

UV radiation from the sun is a known risk factor for various eye conditions, including cataracts and eyelid carcinomas. This occurs by a mechanism called oxidative stress which involves DNA damage, mutations, cellular damage and inflammatory response.

In our eyes, the cornea filters and absorbs almost all of the UV radiation below wavelengths around 280 nanometers with decreasing absorption as wavelength increases until about 320 nanometers – this is considered UVC and UVB, and can cause photokeratitis. Next, the lens absorbs a majority of the UV light with wavelengths below 400 nanometers – this is considered UVA, and can cause cataracts.

When it comes to our skin, UV light can penetrate our skin at different depths based on wavelength and energy, putting us more at risk for squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and basal cell carcinoma (BCC).

By blocking 100% of UVA and UVB rays, EyeQLenz helps prevent long-term UV-related eye damage and reduces the risk of developing these sight-threatening conditions. With EyeQLenz, you can enjoy outdoor activities with confidence, knowing that your eyes are protected from harmful UV radiation.

Filtering Infrared Radiation

Infrared radiation (IR), although less commonly discussed, can also pose risks to eye health. Research has shown that prolonged exposure to infrared radiation can lead to thermal damage to your ocular tissues and increase the risk of cataract formation and skin damage. Research shows that it is due to the generation of reactive oxygen species, inflammation, and changes in DNA structure. Similar to UV exposure, IR exposure can contribute to vision-impairing eye conditions. By incorporating infrared filtering technology, EyeQLenz provides an additional layer of protection against this invisible threat, ensuring comprehensive eye health and safety.

Filtering High-Energy Blue Light

High-energy blue light, emitted by digital screens and artificial lighting, has been linked to digital eye strain, disturbances in circadian rhythm, and is currently being studied for impact on retinal damage. EyeQLenz filters out a significant portion of blue light, reducing eye strain and fatigue for those with prolonged screen time. With EyeQLenz, you can enjoy enhanced visual comfort and productivity without compromising your eye health.

What is the Difference between Blokz Photochromic and EyeQLenz?

You may recall ordering Blokz Photochromic lenses in the past and now you may be wondering, “What’s the difference?” Both Blokz Photochromic and EyeQLenz lenses offer advanced light-adapting technology and provide protection against UV radiation and blue light. However, EyeQLenz goes a step further by incorporating infrared filtering technology for comprehensive eye protection. While both lenses adapt to changing light conditions, EyeQLenz offers enhanced protection against a wider range of harmful light radiation, making it the all-inclusive choice for complete eye health and comfort.
