How LED light bulbs impact your sleep?

by BluTech Lenses Blue Light Filter Glasses

If you ever experience trouble falling asleep at night, low melatonin hormone levels might be the reason behind it.

Melatonin is a hormone, developed by the pineal gland - a small endocrine gland found in the central nervous system. The function of melatonin is to regulate your wake and sleep cycles. Production of natural melatonin begins after sunset; however, blue light from light bulbs sends a signal to your brain that it is not yet time to produce melatonin; therefore, it leads to insomnia.

Although any kind of light can suppress melatonin’s production, blue light does it more than others. Moreover, overexposure to blue light may suppress melatonin levels for about twice as long and also shifts circadian rhythms by twice as much, leading to sleeplessness.

The LED light bulbs produce more blue light and overexposure to blue light in this digital age is common; therefore, it is cause for concern. LED lights from overhead lighting, television, and tablets stop the production of melatonin hormone levels at night. And this worsens after a while. Hence, you need to consider the impact of the bulb’s blue light.

How to reduce the LED bulb’s blue light effects?

Wearing blue light filter glasses is one of the best ways to filter out the blue light from LED bulbs without distorting your vision. When you wear them when working under the LED lights, it will maintain your sleep-wake cycle and deliver a sound sleep.

Conclusion

As you can see, light bulbs emit blue light that affects our sleep and blue light blocking glasses help to eliminate its negative effects. But, if you are experiencing blurred or double vision and itching eyes, wearing digital eye strain glasses is the best way to get relief from these symptoms.
