Is adding blue light blocking to my glasses worth it?

  • Blue Blocker lenses are designed to filter out specific wavelengths of light, particularly High Energy Visible (HEV) blue light. This particular wavelength can be especially harmful to the retina. While it's present in all light sources, including natural sunlight, it's emitted in significantly higher concentrations from the sun.

    Additionally, HEV blue light is also emitted from artificial sources like compact fluorescent bulbs and LED screens, such as those on your laptop, tablet, phone, or TV.

    It's important to be aware that both natural and artificial light sources can expose your eyes to HEV blue light. Blue Blocker lenses are designed to reduce your exposure to this potentially harmful light, providing added protection for your eye health Starting at $15.95, our blue blockers include anti-scratch and anti-glare coatings.

Understanding blue light exposure

  • Blue light is emitted both indoors by modern digital devices and outdoors by natural sunlight. Prolonged exposure to blue light, particularly from screens like computers or smartphones, can contribute to issues such as headaches and eye fatigue. Additionally, extensive use of blue light-emitting devices late at night can disrupt the body's natural circadian rhythm, potentially affecting sleep quality.

    Payne's Blue Blockers are crafted using advanced lens technology to effectively filter and reduce exposure to harmful blue light. Our Blue Blockers are designed to block up to 98% of blue light in the 400-420nm range, which includes the most harmful part of the blue light spectrum. This helps minimize eye strain, improve visual comfort, and reduce potential sleep disturbances caused by blue light exposure.

Are blue blockers similar to traditional computer glasses?

  • Blocking blue light is an important feature to consider adding to glasses intended for computer use or all-day wear. Our Blue Blockers effectively filter blue light while maintaining a cosmetically clear appearance with virtually no color distortion. We also offer specialized solutions for enhanced computer vision, tailored for progressive and bifocal wearers. Explore these options to match your lifestyle and prescription needs [here]

Understanding progressive lenses: Your options

  • Progressive lenses, also known as no-line bifocals, seamlessly blend distance, intermediate, and near vision in one lens.

    Our progressive lenses utilize state-of-the-art digital free form design, customizing your prescription to your chosen frame. This technology partnership delivers unmatched clarity and comfort, greatly improving and expanding the usable viewing areas of the lens.

    Please note that all progressive lenses have some peripheral distortion due to the blending of multiple prescriptions in the lens. However, digital free form lenses significantly minimize this distortion, ensuring a more natural and comfortable viewing experience.

What's the difference between over the counter readers and prescription reading glasses?

  • Readers, often known as cheaters, magnifiers, or over-the-counter glasses, solely magnify text and are not intended for addressing vision issues.

    On the other hand, prescription reading glasses are designed to correct your vision and can be customized to the reading distance recommended by your doctor.

Understanding Anti-Reflective (ARC) coating: Do you need it ?

  • Anti-reflective (AR) coating is highly recommended for all glasses wearers, as it enhances lens clarity, reduces glare, and improves the appearance of your glasses. It's especially beneficial for those who spend extended periods in front of screens, drive at night, or desire a polished look. At Payne, we offer three tiers of AR coating:

    ClearVue Anti-Glare:Standard AR coating, reduces glare indoors and while driving ($3.95).

    OleoGuard Anti-Glare:Reduces glare indoors and while driving, plus oleophobic properties to repel dust and smudges ($12.95).

    CrystalClear Anti-Glare:Premium ARC with exceptional oil, dust, and water repellency, providing crystal-clear cosmetic clarity ($18.95).

    Our ordering process makes it easy to choose the right coating for your budget and lifestyle, ensuring your eyewear delivers the best performance and aesthetics.

What is digital freeform design: Do you need it?

  • Digital Freeform Design is an advanced lens technology that offers customized vision correction tailored to your individual prescription, frame choice, and visual needs.

    Unlike traditional lenses, which are often manufactured using a one-size-fits-all approach, digital freeform lenses are personalized to provide optimal clarity and comfort across the entire lens surface.

    As an online eyewear provider, we recognize the importance of providing high-quality visual solutions. That's why, during the order process, our system will recommend digital freeform design for single vision lens wearers with moderate to higher prescriptions. This innovative design significantly enhances the visual experience and ensures that your eyewear is perfectly suited to your specific needs.

    Our experts are available to guide you through the selection process and help you make an informed decision for your eyewear needs.
