How does blue light affect me?
Long exposure can affect you in many different ways from feeling tired, headaches, eye strain to poor sleep.
Blue light and how it affects your sleep.
Until the late 1800s, humans were primarily exposed to only natural light during the day and darkness at night. Fast forward to today, we're constantly immersing ourselves in artificial light, most of it blue.
Increased exposure to the artificial blue light, especially at night suppresses the secretion of melatonin, the hormone that regulates sleep cycles. This means, we are getting less sleep and our sleep quality is poor. Wearing anti-blue Light Glasses and taking a prescribed melatonin substitute as recommended by your GP can help with better rest.
