Blue Light Glasses
Relieve Your Eye Strain
& Get Better Sleep!
Blue-light blocking glasses
have filters in their lenses that block or absorb blue light, and in some cases UV light, from getting through. That means if you use these glasses when looking at a screen, especially after dark, they can help reduce exposure to blue light waves that can keep you awake.
Blue light exposure may increase the risk of macular degeneration.
The fact that blue light penetrates all the way to the retina (the inner lining of the back of the eye) is important, because laboratory studies have shown that too much exposure to blue light can damage light-sensitive cells in the retina.
A 2017 study done by the University of Houston found that participants wearing the glasses showed about a 58% increase in their nighttime melatonin levels. By using blue blocking glasses we can improve sleep and still continue to use our devices in moderation.
Decreased light at night signals the body to generate sleep hormones like melatonin.
Blue light disrupts these signals, and less melatonin is generated. For some, blue light filtering glasses are a great way to combat the eye strain and sleeplessness that come with excessive screen time.
