Why are Blue and Bright Light Harmful to Us at Night?

Studies have shown that exposure to blue and bright light at night can affect our sleep and our health. This phenomenon is due to the suppression of melatonin production, a hormone that promotes sleep.

Although the science behind this is not fully understood, it may be responsible for some of the links between blue light and certain health issues. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 74% of youth aged 12-17 years access the Internet using mobile devices. They also spend two to three hours a day on computers.

During the day, light from the sun passes through the atmosphere, where the shorter, high-energy blue wavelengths collide with air molecules and scatter everywhere. This blue light is responsible for making the sky blue. It also helps to regulate our circadian rhythm, enhance alertness, boost our reaction times, elevate our moods, and make us feel more awake. However, we are increasingly exposed to this light from artificial sources such as LED lights and energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs.

When you use your digital devices at night, it is important to limit your time on them. If you have to work at night, you can try using digital devices in your spare time, but make sure you only use them consciously. This way, you can limit the amount of time you spend on them. You can also limit your screen time during the day and spend more quality time with your friends in person.

Despite the fact that the majority of people cannot turn off their electronic devices at night, there are some things you can do to minimize your exposure to blue and bright light at night. First, you should use red or orange colored lamps instead of fluorescent lighting. And, if you need to read in bed, use a lamp that does not emit this light. Another effective way to reduce your exposure is to dim your screens. There are also “night modes” for many electronic devices.

Blue and bright light at night can cause long-term damage to the retinas of our eyes. This is the reason why it is so important to avoid lights at night. If you use bright lights, the effects will be permanent. By blocking these sources of light, you can avoid these health risks. For example, leaving your computer on while you sleep. Even if you’re reading in bed, you should turn off your phone if you’re using a laptop.

If you’re not sleeping, the blue light will interfere with your sleep. If you’re looking for a solution to this problem, the first step is to limit the frequency of your lights. The second effective solution is to buy and use special biohacking glasses. We will tell you about them in the next articles.
