Zenni Becomes First in Industry to Bring Blue Light-blocking Trivex Lenses to Market at Value Price Point
Perfect for the Classroom and the Playground, Blokz Trivex Lenses Are Impact Resistant for Children to Wear in Both Indoor-outdoor Settings
NOVATO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Zenni, the online optical industry leader, announced today the launch of its Blokz Trivex lenses, an impact resistant, blue light-blocking lens made specifically to meet the durability and safety standards needed for children. With kids back to school, Blokz Trivex lenses offer the best combination of safety, comfort, style and optical performance for both the classroom and the playground.
“It’s important for parents to protect their children’s eyesight at any age”
Starting at just $39.95, Blokz Trivex lenses are offered at a fraction of competitor pricing for standard Trivex lenses without sacrificing material quality or performance. The lightweight lens provides optimal visual quality and durability for children in need of corrective eyewear. With Zenni’s Blokz Trivex lenses, children not only benefit from glasses that are impact resistant, but also enjoy the Blokz blue light-blocking technology which helps protect young eyes from the harmful light from digital screens, artificial light and the sun.
“It’s important for parents to protect their children’s eyesight at any age,” said Bai Gan, Zenni’s Chief Product Officer. “Because Zenni promotes healthy eyesight for children, we have incorporated our Blokz blue light-blocking technology within Trivex lenses, the preferred lens material for children, that pass the optical industry’s highest standards for impact resistance. With this industry-first offering, parents can now provide the safety and protection children need for their developing eyes without compromising visual performance for play and schoolwork.”
A recent Digital Eye Strain Report from The Vision Council cited that more than 70% of American adults report their child(ren) receives more than two hours of screen time per day; and nearly 25% of parents are still not concerned about the impact of digital devices on their child(ren)’s developing eyes. Blokz Trivex lenses are made with a blue-light blocking polymer that is directly incorporated into the lens material to absorb blue light and combat the effects of digital eye strain.
