What is Blue Light?

Sunlight contains colors that are on the visible light spectrum (think: ROYGBV). Blue light may also come from man-made products such as fluorescent and LED lights, smart phones, computers, and other similar electronic devices.

It Won't Let You Sleep

At night, the lack of blue light from the sun causes your brain to tell your body to release Melatonin, the sleep hormone. But when you use your electronics at night, the presence of blue light will trick your body into not releasing Melatonin. This may cause a disturbance in your natural sleep cycle, also called your Circadian Rhythm.

Increasing Your Risk

The blue light spectrum has a very short wavelength and produces a higher amount of energy. This decreases visual contrast and eventually leads to the straining of your eyes. This light spectrum also increases your risk for macular degeneration, the leading cause of age-related vision-loss and affects over 10 million Americans (more than cataracts and glaucoma combined).
