Similar to sunscreens, which have an SPF rating, Eyesafe technology has an RPF® rating -- or Retina Protection Factor. The higher the rating, the more digital blue light energy is blocked. Eyesafe technology made with Accessory Glass 2 by Corning® provides consumers with improved scratch resistance, reduced scratch visibility and better drop performance compared to existing screen protector solutions.

According to a 2016 Nielsen Audience Report, the average screen time has grown to 10.4 hours per day. As such, blue light exposure has increased, especially among children. Research shows that prolonged exposure to the blue light emitted from electronics can result in a variety of health concerns for adults and children, including computer vision syndrome, eye strain, sleep cycle disruption and a variety of other ocular health concerns.

"As screen time and blue light exposure from devices continues to increase, we are excited to collaborate with Corning, the leading innovator in glass technologies for the display industry," says Justin Barrett, Healthe's CEO. "Together we have developed a best-in-class light filtering technology which offers protection from high-energy visible blue light and provides the benefits of Corning's superior glass for device protection."

"Corning is excited to collaborate with Healthe to create a better user experience by leveraging our unique material science solutions," said Scott Forester, division vice president, Marketing and Innovation Products, Corning Specialty Materials. "Corning's Accessory Glass was designed for screen protector applications and delivers superior scratch and drop performance. The combination with Eyesafe technology now provides consumers with added protection from the harmful effects of blue light."
