What is Blue Light?

For those who are unfamiliar with the term, we can help clarify the terminology. Light comes in different coloured wavelengths such as red, green, orange, yellow and blue. Each wavelength has its own energy. However, blue light is a fracture of the light wavelength that the human eye can see. It is also the highest energy in the visible spectrum.

People may not know this, but we are constantly exposed to blue light in our everyday life. As a result, you have a higher chance of damaging your eyes coming from artificial lights, televisions, and other digital screens such as smartphones, tablets, and computer screens.

Research shows that extensive blue light exposure may lead to age-related macular degeneration. In other words, it's a condition that affects the central part of the eye (the retina), causing blurred or loss of central vision. In addition, blue light is responsible for regulating our sleep-wake cycle. Therefore, moderate exposure to blue light during the day is beneficial because it helps keep us awake. But, overexposure to it from digital screens, especially at night, can be harmful, causing eye strain, blurry vision, dry eyes, headaches, migraines and disruption in your sleep pattern.

Why Blue Light Glasses Work: Benefits

Are blue light glasses worth it? This is a question often asked by the public, and we will leave it up to you to decide. Generally, blue light blocking glasses remove 50 to 100 percent of harmful light coming from digital screens. But, what are other benefits? These are the main ones:

  • Improve your sleep: In 2019, a study by Knufinke M, Fittkau-Koch L, Møst EIS, Kompier MAJ, Nieuwenhuys was conducted on 15 healthy athletes. They were asked to follow specific guidelines as part of their nighttime routine while wearing blue light glasses or transparent glasses. After being monitored for nine nights, the blue light glasses athletes showed better sleep activity. So, blue light blocking glasses can help regulate your sleep cycles and improve the quality of your sleep.
  • Reduce eye strain: The Vision Council underlined the importance of wearing glasses to prevent blue light from damaging your eyes when working long hours. Although the symptoms of eye strain are temporary, wearing blue light blocking glasses can help keep the eyes more rested, relaxed and comfortable.
  • Improve visual clarity: Other symptoms of eye strain from excessive exposure to digital screens can be blurred vision and irritated eyes, leading to vision disruption. So, wearing blue light glasses can help you see things crystal clear.
