Like most of the population, you probably think it is highly unfashionable to wear shades at night. Well, this perception is changing: just take a look at any entertainment magazine and you will see pictures of dozens of celebrities wearing tinted glasses, both indoors and at night. Why do they do this? First of all, to not be recognized and, secondly, because many of them know that the blue, wavelength light emitted from electronic devices can be harmful to our circadian rhythm. Here are the top 4 reasons why you should wear a pair of blue light blocking glasses tonight!
1. The blue, wavelength light emitted from electronic devices is harmful to us.
As mentioned, this blue light can seriously disturb our natural circadian rhythm by suppressing the body’s melatonin production. This can result in insomnia and other sleep disturbances, making it hard for us to concentrate during the day.
2. Unblocked light generally makes it difficult for us to fall asleep.
If you have a sleep disorder (or even an undiagnosed one) and you are sensitive to evening light, you may greatly benefit from a pair of anti blue light glasses. People who work shifts can also derive a lot of benefit from these glasses.
3. We all use electronic devices before we go to bed – but shouldn’t.
In order to get a good night’s sleep, it is advisable to switch off all electronic devices (including cell phones, computers, tablets, television sets, etc) at least an hour or two before bedtime. However, this is simply not feasible for most people. This then results in exposure to blue wavelength light. Use of a pair of blue light blocking glasses can be the answer!
