If your family is anything like mine, then you often see them in front of a screen. Maybe it’s a television screen, smart phone, or video gaming screen? Or perhaps you yourself work in an environment with harsh over head lighting? Perhaps you have wondered how to protect your families eyes. I know I have.
And that’s why I love today’s Holiday Gift Guide suggestion – Fashionable Prospek Blue light-filtering Glasses. I’m excited to be partnering with Spektrum to tell you about how to protect your eyes from excess artificial blue light using blue light-filtering glasses.
Why does Blue Light Matter?
Blue light’ is a naturally occurring wavelength of light found near the ‘pre-UV’ portion of the visible light spectrum. Historically, human exposure to blue light during daylight hours was associated with positive benefits such as increased energy and wakefulness.
But, as blue light emitting devices such as smartphone screens and overhead lighting command more and more time in front of our eyes – blue light exposure has begun to reach disruptive or even unhealthy levels for many people with modern lifestyles.
My husband is serious about Blue Light Blocking and has the Spektrum Elite glasses, that block 99% of Blue Light. My daughter and I have glasses that appear to be normal with very little noticeable yellow tint. My daughter has the Movie Star 50% blocking glasses, and wears them when she does work on her tablet.
I wear Spektrum Artist 50% Blocking glasses when I work on my computer during the day, and I love how cute they are! I suffer from Migraines and bright light can sometimes be a trigger for me. Wearing blocking glasses helps cut down on that possibility.
What are some ways Blue Light may be effecting us?
- Eye Health: Mounting medical evidence suggests that prolonged exposure to blue light- like that emitted by a computer screen or smartphone- may permanently damage the eyes and contribute to both the formation of cataracts and to the destruction of cells in the center of the retina.
- Sleep Disruption: Blue light is closely tied to the body’s circadian rhythm, or ‘internal clock’, because it powerfully suppresses the body’s secretion of Melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep and wakefulness. Exposure to blue light via electronic devices or office lighting after the sun has gone down, can disrupt one’s circadian rhythm, making it harder to fall asleep or get a good night’s rest.
