how can blue light blocking glasses improve your sleep?

Answer:

 


In today’s modern world where we are bombarded with different kinds of electronic devices, it is inevitable that we are becoming increasingly reliant upon them and are letting them take over our day to day routines. Back in the days when we used to read books before bed time are gone. Nowadays these precious moments are replaced with watching TV shows on our iPads or scrolling through our Facebook feed on our smartphones. Often times we even get so sucked into the enigmatic content that we stay up way past our bed time just to find out what is going to happen on the next episode of Game of Thrones. But besides the interesting content that keeps us up, according to science the artificial blue light emitted from our digital devices also have an impactful damage to our entire system.

What is Blue Light and what are its effects?

Simply put, blue light is just light that is emitted from electronic devices. When we stare at our digital screens for a large amount of time, our body absorbs an excessive amount of blue light that could have harmful effects on to our health. While glaring at a screen for too long can induce some immediate physical damages such as neck and back strains, the long term effects are more detrimental in comparison.


One long term effect blue light can cause is eye strain and bloodshot eyes which could snowball into vision problems that permanently damage our eyesight. Problems such as cataracts and age related muscular degeneration are two of the most common issues exacerbated by the over-absorption of blue light. With over 70% of adults today admitting they have eye strain issues, it is apparent that the scope of people affected by blue light is increasing faster than ever.


Another effect, and possibly the most annoying to deal with, is the disruption of our circadian rhythm as a result of decreasing serotonin levels. Circadian rhythm, or our body clock, controls our daily routines to ensure us of a healthy lifestyle. However, our sleeping hours could easily be affected due to the increased concentration levels induced by these light rays at night. As a result, problems such as restless sleep, reluctance to wake up, and insomnia come about which only lead to an increasingly lethargic lifestyle.

Blue Light Blocking Glasses

Blue light can actually be easily prevented with just a pair of blue light blocking glasses. These glasses have lenses with lens focusing power that allows us to concentration on the screen while reducing our eye muscular fatigue. Slipping on a pair of blue light blocking glasses will allow us to preserve our normal melatonin levels and ensure us a wonderful night’s sleep. If you are one who finds yourself feeling really tired all the time due to spending an excessive amount of time with your electronic advice then it is definitely a good idea to purchase a pair of these glasses (such as a pair of Gunnar glasses known for their anti-blue light models). For more information or a place to buy these blue light blocking glasses please check out Vision Direct.
