This Blue Defense Extreme progressive lens has one of the widest channels of any progressive lens giving incredible vision from far to near and everywhere in between.

Dr Michael Lange recommends all children wear Blue Light Defense lenses with prescription or without prescription to filter the potentially harmful blue light being emitted form their digital apps they are constantly in front of. Blue light Defense lenses come in single vision and progressive lenses they are not available in bifocals or transition lenses. If you are considering purchasing a blue filtering lens make sure you ask the sales associate or optician to show you a demonstration of the blue filtering properties. Many blue filtering lenses are filtering only a small percent of the rays or are orange, yellow, brown or purple in color and may not be cosmetically appealing. Blue Light Defense lenses are essentially almost clear and have a demonstration available before purchasing the lens to prove to you it filters the majority of the harmful blue light. The demo consists of a traditional clear anti glare coated lens ,Blue Light Defense lens and a blue laser. The demonstrator will show you how the Blue Light Defense lens blocks the majority of the blue laser form going thru the lens but the rest of the lenses tested the blue laser will go right thru. These lenses are the highest quality lenses money can buy and are an investment in your future health. These lenses are exclusive through Lange Eye Care until the middle of October when they will be available to the entire country.
