October 10th Designated as Blue Light Awareness Day

Companies such as InvisibleShield and GUNNAR Optiks have designed solutions to combat the blue light overexposure.




(PRESS RELEASE) Recognizing this worldwide epidemic, the California State Senate has designated October 10th as Blue Light Awareness Day – appropriate given the estimated 80 million mobile devices in use statewide. Globally, the date is known as World Sight Day to bring attention to vision impairment but the state of California is taking it a step further as the first legislature to acknowledge the growing issues stemming from blue light exposure. Citizens, particularly children, are encouraged to consider taking protective safety measures in reducing exposure that can lead to issues such as:

  • Compromised sleep
  • Headaches
  • Dry eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Premature aging of the retina
  • Macular degeneration

Companies such as InvisibleShield and GUNNAR Optiks have designed solutions to combat the blue light overexposure. InvisibleShield’s VisionGuard line of screen protectors is infused with Eyesafe technology to safeguard eyes against blue light. On October 10th, the brand is donating 50% of VisionGuard sales through its website to vision non-profit CharityVision. GUNNAR Optiks, the innovation leader in blue light blocking gaming and computer eyewear, provides consumers a fashionable blocking solution for any digital device screen.
