Nikon SeeCoat Blue Lenses

Nikon SeeCoat Blue is a revolutionary lens tailored for those who are constantly on electronic devices such as computers, tablets and smart phones.

According to Nikon, there are three concerns with blue lights:

1. Violet and blue are the shortest, highest energy visible wavelengths and are scattered easily creating haze that can reduce contrast and affect the sharpness and clarity of what you see.

2. High-energy blue light can cause retinal damage and finally,

3. Many of the newest electronic devices emit significant blue light. Absorbing the “blue” or high-energy visible wavelengths can improve the clarity of what’s seen and add protection as well.

Essilor XTRActive Transitions Lenses

Now that summer is here, the roads are starting to glare, and its getting a little harder to see.  Many people like transitions lenses, but they don’t go quite as dark as prescription sunglasses – until now!  Robson Optical
carries Essilor XTRActive transitions lenses which go dark while driving AND they’re polarized!  Here are a few key facts from Essilor:

  • As Transitions Vantage lenses get darker, the polarization increases. And that means your vision gets crisper and sharper.
  • Transitions Vantage lenses are designed for everyday wear as they conveniently adapt from virtually clear indoors to darker and increasingly polarized outdoors.
  • Outdoor vision is noticeably crisper
  • Glass and water look more transparent outdoors
  •  Glare is reduced – even in the brightest sunlight
