Audio frames for working in front of a screen
DuraVision® BlueProtect by Zeiss is a coating specifically developed for those of us who spend a lot of their time indoors and in front of a screen. LEDs, as well as TVs, computers or tablet and smartphone screens, emit blue-violet light that may be harmful to your eyes. The BlueProtect coating reflects this light, thus preventing harmful blue-violet light from entering the eyes.
Natural blue light vs. artificial blue light
Blue-violet light also exists in nature. And for a good reason, as it regulates our circadian rhythm. It is the over-exposure indoors where we usually don’t wear protective sunglasses that poses a problem for us.
Blue light is important …
There is a body of evidence to suggest that blue light in the spectrum between 400 and 520 nm with a maximum at 460 nm is important for the proper regulation of melatonin in the body, which influences circadian rhythms (day-night rhythm) and general well-being.
… but can also be a potential health risk.
On the other hand, there is a body of evidence to suggest that long-term exposure to blue-violet light below 460 nm, with a maximum at 440 nm, may contribute to photochemical damage of the retina, increasing the risk of macular degeneration over time (known as the ‘blue light hazard’).

How Fauna with Zeiss DuraVision® BlueProtect lenses helps you
When putting on your Fauna glasses Memor or Levia, you’ll perceive everything in a yellowish tint. This is due to the fact that the Zeiss DuraVision® BlueProtect lenses reduce the transmission of blue-violet light. To be more precise, blue-violet light in the spectrum of 380–455 nm is reflect while the spectrum above 460 nm is transmitted. This supports in balancing your circadian rhythm and keeping your eyes healthy.
Moreover, Fauna’s integrated Zeiss lenses offer:
- more visual clarity
- more comfort
- easy care
- superior durability of the coating
