So you’re thinking about jumping on the blue light blocking glasses wagon? Here’s everything you need to know:
WHERE DOES BLUE LIGHT COME FROM? Basically everything we can’t live without… our cell phones, tvs, laptops, computers, tablets, LED lights, & more.
WHAT CAN BLUE LIGHT DO TO ME? Supposedly, overexposure to blue light can cause symptoms like headaches, sleep disturbance, eye strain, retina damage, fatigue, blurry vision, and stiff neck. Key word: “overexposure”.
WHAT DO BLUE LIGHT BLOCKING GLASSES DO? They block out a portion of blue light and some can reduce screen glare.
WHEN SHOULD I WEAR MY BLUE LIGHT BLOCKING GLASSES? Research says a healthy doses of blue light during the day is actually good for you because it can boost awareness, reaction time, mood, etc. I plan to wear mine mostly just at night, as that is where most of the benefit will come into play.
