Whether you work a nine to five desk job or not, chances are if you’re not spending your head in a laptop all day, it’s in a phone, leading to one hell of a serving of blue light, on the daily.
With research having shown that too much blue light can cause both poor sleep (delaying the release of sleep-inducing melatonin and increasing alertness) as well as digital eye strain, causing headaches, loss of focus, burning eyes and blurred vision — it’s no wonder so many lovers of screen time are investing in blue light glasses.
