If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, it could be because of blue light!
Our bodies respond to light in very predictable ways. Lights that illuminate more Violet and Green promotes wakefulness, whereas lights that illuminate Yellow and Red make you feel more tired.
When light is absent, your body triggers Melatonin, a hormone secreted in the brain that regulates sleep. This, amongst several other factors, is what makes you feel tired.
In today’s modern day, our eyes are glued to our devices that produce blue light for hours on end. This not only prevents us from getting to sleep easily, it can throw off our circadian rhythm, which is a fancy word for saying “it could lead to chronic poor sleep quality.”
A quick hack to alleviate this blue light issue is to buy a pair of blue light blocking glasses, which blocks out blue light. Put them on a few hours before bed and you will be ready for a great night of sleep.
When it comes to protecting your eyes, eyewear that only offers UV protection is simply not enough. Often, these glasses are not able to provide protection against the harmful effects of blue light. And this is where blue blockers really shine. They provide all-day protection against both blue light and Ultraviolet light, keeping your eyes in good health.
Fortunately, there are many high-quality blue light blocking glasses that can effectively (and quite affordably) prevent people’s eyes from the ill effects of blue light. The way these glasses work is actually pretty simple some cheaper blue light glasses have an amber/orange tint on their lenses that cut part of the light that is blue, other higher-end blue light glasses utilize a clear lens with a special anti-reflective coating that blocks blue light.
Plus, blue light blocking glasses actually look pretty sleek and stylish and you can get them in different frame designs and colors as well.
If you spend hours on your computer (working, scrolling, streaming or gaming), if you use your phone, tablet or e-reader for long periods of time, or if you enjoy a good binge session on Netflix, you should consider the long-term effects of blue light damage and get yourself a pair of blue light blockers.
