The Blue Light Hazard:
Out at sea and on the docks it’s the blue light and glare that’s damaging to.the eyes.
Blue light is now an internationally recognised hazard to the eye.

“Blue-light hazard is defined as the potential for a photochemically-induced retinal injury resulting from electromagnetic radiation exposure at wavelengths primarily between 400 and 450 nm. … At wavelengths of blue light below 430 nm this greatly increases the potential for oxidative damage.”

Marine Optical Health & Safety:
In addition to providing 100% UV A/B against Harmful Invisible Light below 400nm, Costa® 580® Lenses are 100% polarised across the entire spectrum of light to Reduce Surface Glare and are also patented to absorb 100% of HEV, High Energy Visible Light up to 425nm from both natural and artificial sources which may contribute to eyestrain, blurring, dry eye, migraines and as a result of extended exposure; may cause macular degeneration, pterygium, cataracts and other eye diseases.

Costa® 580® Lens Technology
Filters out the harsh yellow light at 580nm and enhances the peak light sensetivity of the eye to the greens & blues, PLUS absorbs 100% of potentially harmful HEV High Energy Visible Blue Light up to 425nm in order to cut haze and blurring and offer exceptional visual clarity and comfort over long periods.
