Why Blue Light Is Bad for Your Health?

Blue light comes naturally from the sun and artificially from our digital devices. Spending hours in front of your device, it can have adverse effects on your health. For example, if you are working from home, you probably spend more than 8 hours per day in front of your computer. This will cause overexposure to blue light, and you should consider wearing blue light blocking glasses. Overexposure can cause eyestrain, headaches, difficulties with focus and concentration, and many more negative effects. Also, using your phone right before bedtime can cause sleep disruption.

When To Wear Blue Light Glasses?

Blue lens glasses can reduce the amount of harmful blue light radiation. Therefore, generally speaking, the best time to wear these glasses is whenever you are exposed to blue light. This includes:

  • Working from home

Very often when we are in front of our digital devices like mobile phones, laptops, tablets, TV, etc., we don’t think about the possible harmful effects of blue light. Working from home means spending hours in front of our computer. This is bad because our eyes are working under pressure to stay focused and concentrated. The more complex the work, the worse the eye conditions are becoming because more effort is needed, and that has a negative impact not only on your eyes2 and vision but also on your health in general.

  • Staying on your device

Watching your favorite TV show is one way where you can’t leave your device. Also, if you like reading your favorite book online and staying on your tablet for hours, for example, computer reading glasses can be a perfect solution for maintaining good eye health.

  • Better sleep
Maybe you can’t fall asleep without watching a movie or some interesting show. In this case, wearing blue light blocking glasses is a must. As mentioned before, blue light has effects on your sleep-wake cycle. According to one research3, if you’re exposed to blue light before you go to sleep, your body doesn’t release enough melatonin and you will have trouble falling asleep.
