epik™ BLUE is now available across the GSRx portfolio of lens materials & designs
epik™ BLUE lenses go beyond UV for maximum performance.
They absorb up to 90% of HEV 2 and HEV 1 light bands, the ranges identified as potentially harmful by ASC Z80 and The Vision Council's Spectral Bands Task Force.

Growing evidence identified health concerns across all age groups related to cumulative blue light exposure and increased digital screen usage. Sources: California S. Res. 73 Ch. 158, 2019 and ANSI ASC Z80 & The Vision Council’s Spectral Bands Task Force Technical Report, 2023
Disrupted melatonin production resulting in mood disorders; sleep disorders; and, lowered alertness and reaction times.
Digital eye strain symptoms such as tired, dry eyes; headaches; and, blurry vision.
Premature aging of the retina, which may accelerate macular degeneration.
Depending on the lens material selected, epik™ BLUE absorbs up to 90% of HEV2 and HEV1 light bands (400-500nm). These are the ranges identified as potentially harmful for age-related macular degeneration and circadian rhythm impact.

Protection without compromise.
epik™ BLUE is a clear lens material that mimics the protective tint that develops in the eye’s crystalline lens as we mature.
A combination of proprietary optical pigment and melanin is infused directly into the lens material to create a lens that is HEV light absorptive.
Blue light absorptive lens material – not a coating.
Absorbs up to 90% of HEV 2 and HEV 1 light bands (400-500nm), the ranges identified as potentially harmful for age-related macular degeneration and circadian rhythm impact.*
Allows beneficial blue light to pass through while being virtually clear - no yellow tint.
Available in the widest range of materials on the market and in plano.
Compatible with Infinity® Non-Glare coatings.
