UNDERSTANDING MORE ABOUT BLUE LIGHT


Blue light is the highest frequency light in the visible light spectrum, also known as “HEV” or High Energy Visible. While Melanin does not “block” blue light, it filters the harmful HEV rays, protecting your eyes and preserving color perception.



BLUE LIGHT: A DANGER FOR THE RETINA


Unlike UVA and UVB rays which almost never reach the retina, Blue light (HEV) due to its high frequency, radiates the retina all day long. Recent scientific studies have revealed that such rays can damage your retinas over time.

THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF BLUE LIGHT


As we age our natural self defense system against blue light becomes less efficient, resulting in higher exposure to the harmful rays over time. These cumulative damages are likely to be responsible for retinal diseases such as AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration).



PRESERVE YOUR VISUAL HEALTH


The greatest benefit of Electric’s Melanin infused lenses is the protection they afford your eyesight and retina. However, their benefits go beyond the eye itself, protecting the sensitive skin around the eye from damaging HEV rays and helping battle crows feet.

    I have owned electric sunglasses for years. owning several pairs of the technician's and moving on to the charge and later in life to the sixer's. This brand is hands down the best quality line of eye wear available! There customer service is bar none with a professional staff and amazing customer service.

    Electric for eva.

    I had previous worn EC/DCs almost exclusively for the last 8 years. When I needed a new pair I learned they had been discontinued. It was a travesty. Luckily customer service was there to help. They suggested the charge as the most comparable replacement. I'm stoked overall. The glasses fit well and look sharp. Yet another reason to stick with Electric!

    These glasses are by far the most comfortable I've ever owned. They are so light & clear. I'm in construction & pretty rough on them. Haven't had any issues with them stretching out & scratching like a lot of others I've had.
    When an issue came up that was obviously my fault I submitted a claim via their warranty link & was very promptly contacted by customer service via email with very easy warranty instructions to send them in. I received a replacement pair 4 days later! I'm super impressed with Electric California's customer service & so happy with these glasses. Thank you Phong!

    Wanted to give credit to Electric's customer service. I purchased a pair of polarized Charge's about 3 years ago. Recently the lens started to lose a little coating from wear. Not knowing about the warranty, purchased a new pair since I was pleased with them. Reached out to Electric on my old pair to see if the lenses could be fixed. They honored the warranty and got my old pair - frames and lenses - refreshed in 4 days with no questions - look brand new. Great customer service!

    On my 2nd pair of these. Best sunglasses I have ever owned. They almost feel like they are not there. Very comfortable. No eye strain. Look great and the price is good for such nice sunglasses.

    I'm going to be straight up here. These sunglasses are by far the best pair I've owned out of all the company's I've been through. They feel right, they're slick, and make everything clearer. If I were you, I would definitely buy the Charge sunglasses!!
