Blue light blockers: Protect your eyes while working at night on your computer

by BluTech Lenses Blue Light Filter Glasses

Do you work late in the night on your computer? Has it changed your sleep cycle? If so, then you may want to consider investing in a pair of blue light filter glasses.

But why you need these glasses?

See, blue light is all around us. Some of the sources of blue light may include fluorescent light, light emitted from LED devices, and even the Sun. Blue light is extremely dangerous in that it damages your eyes badly, disturbs the sleeping patterns, and can cause other serious medical conditions such as macular degeneration. If you want to avoid the dangers of blue light, then you should wear blue light blocking glasses.

Here are some reasons why you should wear these glasses when working on your computer (at night and even a day).

  • Regulate melatonin production- Melatonin is a hormone that controls the body’s circadian rhythm. When melatonin is released into the blood, it makes you feel sleepy. It has also been observed that artificial light disturbs the flow of melatonin levels, and thus, changes the body’s natural sleep/wake cycle. By using blue lenses, your melatonin levels can get adjusted and you can naturally set up your body for a better night‘s sleep.
  • Control Cortisol release- Cortisol is a stress hormone produced by the adrenal gland. Sleep deprivation can lead to increased production of this hormone and thereby result in depression, anxiety, anger issues, etc. However, since blue light filter glasses block out blue light from entering the eyes, they also aid a sound sleep and thus, control the release of the cortisol hormone.
  • Reduce the risk of serious illness- Exposure to this light at night affects your sleep and can also lead to some serious problems like diabetes, cancer, etc. Lowering melatonin levels can cause cancer; also a change in circadian rhythms can increase blood sugar. If you work late at night, you can’t produce melatonin in a sufficient amount so it’s better to wear glasses and minimize disruptions to your sleeping patterns.

Choosing blue blockers is the right decision for you to remain healthy. It’s a worthwhile investment for you, especially when you work late in the night as it blocks the harmful blue wavelengths. This can prevent you from sleep disorders and other health issues. So, whether you have a habit of browsing through your social media feeds at night or work on your computer till the sun rises, you should use blue light blocking glasses.
