Blue Light Filter Glasses – 6 Benefits That Make Them the Boon
Blue light is a high energy part of the visible light spectrum while our eyes can see it, they can’t really handle the energy and thus are prone to damage from blue light.
This damage can hurt our retina – the layer behind the eyeball which sends signals to our brain through the optic nerve. This process is what helps us see. But the damage to the macula (central part of the retina) can lead to macular degeneration which can further lead to vision loss.
Apart from this, your eyes may also become prone to cataracts due to prolonged exposure to blue light.
BENEFIT #1. Blue light filter glasses help block the blue light that screens of digital devices and fluorescent lighting emits and thus save your eyes from diseases like macular degeneration and cataracts.
Additionally, blue light affects the production of an important hormone called melatonin – it is the sleep hormone. With that affected, you are bound to get to sleep late and thus hamper your sleep cycle. This means your circadian rhythm can go haywire and may lead to insomnia.
The trouble with lack of sleep is that it doesn’t allow the body the time it needs for decluttering the brain. With no sleep or poor quality sleep, neurotoxins start building up in your brain. These cause damage and raise the chances of depression.
