Why Wear Computer Protective Eyeglasses?

June 11, 2017
Some 3 years ago, I still had 20/20 vision. Every time I finish my Annual Physical Exam, they always told me that I could still be a pilot because of my vision. After a year, I was advised to wear eyeglasses for protection for my eyes when using the computer. I had my glasses but didn’t take it seriously. I regret not taking care of my eyes. Now, I have sensitivity to the light and sun. 
We never realized the harmful effects of the light emitted from the gadgets that we use everyday – laptop, smartphone, tablets and even TV sets. 
Essilor Philippines introduces new endorse and presents its more technologically advance protective lenses yet. Tom Rodriguez, was officially welcomed as the new ambassador of the Crizal® Prevencia™. 
There is no best person to talk about the importance of having good sight and protecting our eyes than Tom Rodriquez, who is an actor and a digital artist. Tom partnered with Essilor, the world leader in corrective ophthalmic lenses to take care of their eyes against harmful blue light with Crizal® Prevencia™. 
Crizal® Prevencia™.  is the only clear lens in the market to effectively filter harmful blue light from the sun and digital devices while maximising essential blue light for healthier vision.

Essilor general manager Dr. Emelita Roleda says, “With Tom as our newest ambassador, we hope to raise more awareness on the harmful effects of over-exposure to blue light and promote healthy vision in the country. By aligning him with Crizal® Prevencia™, we hope to convince more Filipinos to use protective lenses in their daily activities.”

During the launch, a TVC was shown showing a day in a life of Tom – who is very much like a typical tech savvy who uses computer and gadgets to work, commute and connect with people. 
I was surprised to know that  harmful blue light can cause long-term damage, such as cataracts and Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Crizal® Prevencia™ uses E-SPF® and Lightscan™ Technology which offers complete front and back protection and selective filtering of harmful blue light from devices and the sun.I wished I were never abusive of my eyes. 
Now, I make sure that  use Crizal® Prevencia™ everytime I use the computer – or just even playing games in my mobile.
