LYON, France, Dec. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Bollé Safety, the world-renowned leading manufacturer of safety glasses and goggles, has today announced ProBlu by Bollé Safety, its new line of protective eyewear made from the most advanced blue blocker lens technology aimed at preventing vision damage from harmful blue light. The usage of digital devices with LED technologies has skyrocketed worldwide, and with this usage comes an increased exposure to blue light, which is emitted by LED screens at higher levels than naturally emitted by the sun. This has become a growing concern for health, with increased exposure to blue light being tied to eye strain, long-term retina damage, as well as negative impacts on physical and mental wellbeing. To combat exposure to blue light and reduce the risk of these health concerns, the new ProBlu line currently consists of 19 different pairs of protective glasses for different types of wearers, with prescription glasses set to be available in 2022.

Bollé Safety ProBlu

This range was developed with the most advanced embedded blue blocker lens technologies, ProBlu 420 and ProBlu 445, using polycarbonate lenses to allow for the dispersed pigments to block blue light up to 445 nanometers (nm). Combined with the blue anti-reflective coating applied to the inside of the lens, the ProBlu 420 product range absorbs 100% of the harmful blue light up to 420 nm, making wearers' eyes feel more comfortable and less strained. As screen time is a part of everyone's daily routines, ProBlu by Bollé Safety offers products for both the wearer's professional and personal lives. This new ProBlu line features products tailored to four main audiences:

"Cutting down on screen time may not always be possible or realistic," Rubina Meunier, Vice President of Brand from Bollé Safety,  "so with the launch of ProBlu, we are trying to meet people where they are and offer them a range of options to protect their eyes from blue light in all areas of their lives. Today, screentime can feel inevitable, but at least with our state-of-the-art protective technologies we're able to make it safer and more comfortable. At Bollé Safety, we believe that blue light glasses shouldn't just be about eye safety concerns, but also about improving physical and mental wellbeing, sharpening skills and allowing for accelerated decision-making; letting you see all you can do."

The full range of ProBlu by Bollé Safety products are available at select worldwide retailers and online.
