BLUE LIGHT PROTECTION

Do you have problems with glare from headlights? Are your eyes tired and strained from being on a computer all day at work, then going home and using your smartphone or tablet until bedtime? Do you notice that it takes you longer to fall asleep or that you've been waking up during the night? 
Here, at Dr. Michael Penney Family Eye Care, we have several options in the form of an AR COATING that can help. 
PURECOAT PLUS is a premium AR that has anti-reflective/anti-glare properties, anti-static properties, scratch resistance, and is super easy to clean.
BLUE PROTECT is a premium AR that includes all of the same features as the PURECOAT PLUS with an added bonus of a blue light blocker(reduces eye strain/tiredness, creates sharper/crisper images, and reduces the exposure to blue-violet light). 
Harmful blue-violet light is emitted from LED's, TV's, computer screens, tablets, and cell phones. Too much exposure to this blue-violet light disrupts the brains production of melatonin, which can cause sleep disturbances. It has also been found that long term exposure to this light may contribute to photochemical damage of the retina. This damage can lead to the development of macular degeneration. 
Call or come in today to schedule your appointment, and ask one of our amazing staff about adding an AR COATING to your glasses.
