Gunnar Optiks; the innovation leader releases new ‘Amber Max’ lens which blocks artificial blue light & improves sleep pattern

The novelty leader in computer glasses & blue light blocking game, Gunnar Optiks, made an announcement today about the expansion of their original lens technology with the introduction of the latest ‘Amber Max’ lens. This new lens provides solutions for the user who are highly sensitive to the non-original blue light and are in pursuit of ways to help improve the sleeping pattern. Maximum protection against the short-term & the long-term effects of strain caused by digital eye & exposure to the non-original blue light which is released from digital screens is offered by ‘Amber Max’.

Doctor at Twin Forks Optometry, Miki Zilnicki stated: “Eye protection is a critical factor in our overall health helping regulate the body’s circadian rhythm allowing for a proper sleep cycle to be achieved. Blue light interferes with melatonin, the hormone that helps us feel tired at night and with our digital devices becoming an essential part of our lives, it’s harder to avoid exposure to blue light. Protective eyewear with lens technology such as GUNNAR’s Amber Max lens plays an important role when protecting from the effects of blue light to make sure eyes remain as healthy as possible. Additionally, macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in the United States, can be caused by extended exposure to artificial blue light, which is GUNNAR’s number one concern.”

In recent research conducted by the Lighting Research Center, it was found that adaptive brightness on gadgets like tablets, mobile phones, etc., do not give protection against the digital eye strain. A notable change was seen when all subjects were made to wear a pair of blue light blocking glasses which absorb/reduce the blue light which disrupts the sleeping cycle and causes eye-strain.

The Marketing Director at Gunnar Optiks, RJ Snyder stated: “We’re excited to introduce our strongest blue light blocking lens, paired with our most popular GUNNAR frame style, the Intercept. The new ‘Amber Max’ lens shields the eye from artificial blue light that disrupts our natural sleep patterns. The ‘Amber Max’ lens is the perfect solution for anyone highly sensitive to blue light or prone to nighttime digital device usage.”
