Today’s Vision Loss is the present #1 Health expenditure in the US, more than Diabetes, Heart disease and Cancer combined. With the new Electronic age… IPhones, Laptops, Computers and Video games and… ‘artificial UVB blue-light’ radiation; Vision Loss will prevail for years to come.

All the major Eyeglass Manufacturers (Nikon, Essilor, Zeiss, Hoya) now provide special electronic UVB ‘blue-light’ coatings on their Lences.

UVB outdoors is the real threat, not… UV. UV protection for the Skin is commonplace… for the Sunglass protection, few choices.

If the above numbers are any indication of Vision Loss; then we are in dire need of… educating ourselves and changing our lifestyle.
