GUNNAR DEBUTS 35BPF LIQUET LENS

Gunnar Haus

GUNNAR Optiks’ new Liquet Lens combines the digital eyewear company’s proprietary filter that defends against dangerous artificial blue light with a subtle, transparent lens. It offers a 35 BPF (the company’s patented Blue-Light Protection scale), which GUNNAR says is the highest protection rating available in a discrete, almost colorless lens. Similar to the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) scale for sunscreen, the BPF scale accurately measures the degree to which a lens protects your eyes from damaging (HEV) blue light and UV light. The lens technology blocks a minimum of 35% of blue light and 100% of UV light, according to the company. The new Liquet Lens is available in GUNNAR’s popular digital eyewear styles, including Enigma, Haus and Vertex.  Read More>>
