(Press Release) To provide patients with protection against blue light, VSP Optics Group has launched Sharper Image TechShield.
“Blue light is illuminating today’s digital world, and a growing body of scientific evidence suggests that it poses threats to our vision and health,” said Dave Delle Donne, senior vice president of business development for VSP Optics Group.
“By leveraging Sharper Image’s innovative brand and commitment to bringing life-improving technology to consumers, eye care professionals can easily discuss the necessity for protection with their patients and reduce their exposure to blue light with Sharper Image TechShield.”
In a recent survey of eye care professionals on VSP’s provider network, 82 percent reported an increase in patients experiencing the harmful effects caused by blue light exposure.
Research has proven exposure to blue light contributes to serious eye and health conditions, including eye strain, vision loss caused by macular degeneration, and even sleep disruption.
Sharper Image TechShield delivers targeted blue light protection in a proprietary, near-clear lens enhancement. Its unique defense technology provides comprehensive protection by both absorbing and deflecting incoming blue light to reduce the wearer’s amount of exposure.
Last year, VSP Optics Group signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Shaper Image to manufacture and distribute optical-related products under the Sharper Image brand. Sharper Image TechShield represents the first of multiple Sharper Image optical products being developed to enhance the lifestyle of today’s consumer.
Sharper Image TechShield is available exclusively through VSPOne Optical Technology Centers and VSP’s contract laboratory network.
