Behind the lens: the science of Wiley X Captivate

The visible light spectrum (or VLS) is the spectrum of light and the part of the spectrum we are able to see. It’s full of an array of colors that we distinguish. 

Some of the areas on the visible light spectrum our eyes can easily distinguish–like reds, greens, and blues, for instance. But when these colors begin to overlap, like blue and green, for example, it can create confusing light and prohibit optical clarity. 

Blue light can be good for increased awareness and elevated mood, as well as other benefits. However, “bad” blue light is extremely damaging. Not only does it exist on digital displays or indoor artificial light, it is also a part of the visible light spectrum. 

Wiley X Captivate lenses provide added protection against long term damage from harmful blue light, while allowing access to beneficial blue light. In fact, it is the only lens that blocks harmful blue light up to 430 nanometers. 

With Wiley X Captivate lenses you get greater clarity and increased contrast, providing the ultimate visual experience.
