    Blue light and sunglasses

    So everyone talks about blue light and computers/phones but the biggest source of blue light is the sun. How much blue light does the typical tinted or polarized lens block? Are brown lenses better at blue light blocking?

    Look into Coppertone from Vision Ease:

    My first question for anyone looking for blue light protection is if they have polar sunwear. VE is great about supplying samples, demonstraters, and answering any questions. They told me figures once and I forgot because no one ever asked me!
    Have I told you today how much I hate poly?
