From early morning until late at night we are using all kinds of digital devices, for work as well as for recreation. Think about laptops, tablets, smartphones and televisions. As we access most of these devices at a short distance, our eyes are increasingly exposed to the light emitted by the screens of those devices.
Research* has shown that more than 34% spend 4 to 6 hours a day with digital devices, while 14% even spends between 10 and 12 hours a day. It is therefore not surprising that more and more people complain about red dry and irritated eyes, blurred vision, fatigue, back, neck and shoulder strain.

LCD and LED computer and TV screen, smart phones, tablets and GPS devices all emit blue light, also know as high energy visible light. As the quality of screen improves, their blue light emission is increasing. Although blue light in itself is a natural phenomenon - it is present in daylight and helps us to stay awake - excessive amounts can have an adverse effect, and cause eye strain and fatigue.
BlueControl coating is a way to prevent eye strain an fatigue by neutralizing blue light, preventing eye strain. With Bluecoat glare is reduced for more comfortable and relaxed vision. Using the lenses gives better contrast and more natural colour perception. This coating comes with HOYA’s unsurpassed Diamond Finish anti-reflection coating.
