Using a smartphone or other type of screen before bed can delay fall asleep right away. If you’re unable to turn off your device an hour or two before bed, as sleep experts recommend, using blue light glasses may help you sleep better.
Looking at a screen all day can make you feel stressed, or you may experience eye and muscle strain. Ergonomic adjustments can help reduce the muscle issues associated with sitting at a desk and looking at a screen all day.
Light, especially blue light, can trigger migraines and exacerbate headache pain. Blocking blue light with special glasses may reduce migraine attacks and reduce headaches and headache pain.
Your cornea and eye lens are good at blocking out harmful UV light from reaching the retina. However, they can’t block blue light. Damage to the retina can increase your risk of developing macular degeneration, which is a leading cause of blindness.
