Kodak Total Blue 1.6AR Lens (Hybrid)

The Ultimate in Blue Light/HEV AR Coatings

Steve Mower - June 11, 2020


Kodak Total Blue 1.6AR Lens is a hybrid of lens material and AR lens coatings that deliver excellent vision indoors, outdoors, every single day. These lenses are a combination of a special high index material in 1.6 index and a anti-reflective coating (AR Coating) that combined, filters and reflects >87% of High Energy Visible Blue Light (HEV). (As well as 100% of UV light.)

These lenses are very clear, with no tint in the lenses, and are the best option for most people. This is the absolute best clear, AR Coated blue block lens we have seen, as it offers the clearest vision without color distortion, and the highest UV/Blue Light/HEV protection. They work particularly well at reducing glare from fluorescent lighting. And oh yeah, the add-on is $80.00 versus $240.00+ in retail stores!


  • The combination of a special monomer in the lens and a special AR coating, these lenses cut ~87% of High Energy Visible (HEV) Blue Light.)
  • Filters 100% of direct UV rays.
  • Reduces glare and reflections caused by digital devices, LED lighting and energy-efficient compact fluorescent lights (CFLs)
  • Extremely clear vision without color distortion.
  • 1.6 high index material is 15% thinner than poly and 30% thinner than CR39 plastic.
  • Scratch resistant and easy-to clean. They have a one year warranty against scratching.
  • Blue light reflecting AR coating on the front.
  • Regular AR coating on the back so blue light does not reflect back into your eyes.
  • Offers clear, natural vision with no color distortion.

Also, for zero power or prescription distance vision:

  • Reduces squinting caused by bright outdoor light.
  • Reduces glare from headlights.
  • Helps with object recognition in low-light and night-driving conditions.

"Things just seem clearer. Due to monovision laser eye surgery I needed different power lenses. I have -.5 and -1.25 lenses (as recommended by my optometrist). Things are just so much clearer. I loaned them to my wife and she is amazed at the difference compared to her readers; she wants a pair now. Of course I recommend this lens." -Anonymous

"I love these frames. (LouisLuso L4004 Tortoise) They are the lightest readers I've ever had. Great style and was available with the Kodak blue block I wanted. I work on the computer 10-12 hours a day and was getting eye strain and mild headaches from the computer screen. The blue block has eliminated that. Love the website and all the info available on it." -Anonymous
"The Kodak Total Blue is especially good for image color correcting. I like the way things look in general with the amber lenses so I wear them for most of my work day." Michael T.
"I have a small head and needed to have computer glasses done after I sustained a concussion. I ordered 2 pairs and added the KODAK Total Blue 1.6AR. These glasses have literally helped stave off the migraines I had been getting post-concussion, when I have to look at a computer screen for hours. I use them as readers without a prescription. I'm able to keep designing websites thanks to these glasses. The frames are comfortable and very well made. These came beautifully packed, and each has a case, a cleaning cloth and lens cleaner. I use ReadingGlassesEtc.com for all my readers. Love the service and quality. Best thing? The survey they now have that asks you how many hours a day you are using a computer, to help determine the coating that's best for you. Awesome!" -Tatiana
"I got the Kodak Total Blue lenses - a little pricey but thrilled to say completely worth it. I am very happy with them for my overly LED bright and 2 computer screen office." -Verm S.
