As a standard practice we do not promote a single fixed percentage of blue light reduction for any of our products. This is because we do not feel this is the most scientifically appropriate or accurate way to describe what the lenses are actually doing in terms of blue light reduction.
Instead, we publish spectral transmittance graphs that show the percentage of reduction at all wavelengths, not just certain points. View SunSync spectral transmittance graphs here.
