YuLife, the tech-driven insurance company on a mission to inspire life, today announced a new partnership with Ocushield, creator of world-leading medically approved blue light filters for digital devices. Thanks to the partnership, YuLife members can benefit from a 30% discount across Ocushield’s catalogue of innovative devices, ranging from phone, tablet and laptop screen protectors to glasses and lamps.
Excessive screen time can lead to eye-strain, dry eyes and headaches, and near-constant use of smartphones or computers can disrupt sleep and cause long-term sight problems. The risk has grown even more acute this year, with Brits spending 40% of their day watching TV and streaming videos at the peak of the lockdown. Ocushield’s team of optometrists and sleep practitioners have developed a range of products to restrict exposure to blue light, which is commonly found in screens and is highly damaging for our eyes as well as our overall health and wellbeing.
“We are always delighted to form new partnerships with innovative companies which share our core value of encouraging people to live healthier lives and be their best selves every single day,” said Sammy Rubin, CEO and Founder, YuLife. “Through partnering with Ocushield, we’re aiming to show employers that they can take simple steps to safeguard employees’ health – especially in an era of remote working and constant online meetings.”
“We’re really excited to partner with YuLife, a company whose core values align with ours: keeping people healthy while offering life-enhancing benefits,” said Dhruvin Patel, CEO and Founder, Ocushield. “Our goal at Ocushield is to look after people’s wellbeing and provide them with what they need to keep their eyes healthy in the digital age. Taking care of our eyes is a vital yet frequently overlooked factor in contributing to our overall wellbeing, and as a company, we strongly relate to YuLife’s approach of linking different aspects of wellness together to improve people’s lives on a daily basis.”
YuLife is the first digital life insurance platform whose mission is to place policyholders’ everyday health and wellbeing first. YuLife equips members with an engaging, game-like app, through which users can access vouchers and discounts from Britain’s leading brands in return for completing everyday wellness challenges, such as walking, cycling, meditation and mindfulness, thus creating a tangible incentive for healthy living. In this way, YuLife enhances workplace satisfaction for the 87% of British office workers who say that they would be more likely to stay with an employer who demonstrates a commitment to their wellbeing. The partnership will enable YuLife members to purchase from the full array of Ocushield products at a significant discount through the YuLife app.
