WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT AND HOW IT AFFECTS YOU
Blue light is a high-energy light that is part of the visible spectrum. Blue light occurs naturally in sunlight and is not always harmful, as it plays an important role in the sleep-wake cycle. However, extended exposure to it can be harmful to your eyes and can lead to poor sleep. Blue light is also emitted from computer screens, smartphones, tablets, TVs and even LED light bulbs.
Prolonged exposure to blue light may lead to these symptoms:

- Poor sleep
HOW DO BLUE LIGHT GLASSES WORK?
Blue light glasses feature special lenses that are slightly tinted and have a special anti-reflective blue light coating. Blue light lenses limit your exposure to blue light that comes from your computer screen, smartphone, tablet, TV, etc.
