Due to the fact that people can spend up to five hours a day on their phones, and an average of another five hours a day watching television, blue light blocking options have been increasing. These 10 hours a day don’t include the amount of time spent on laptops and other PCs. Fortunately, blue light glasses have become widely popular.
People who spend long hours in front of a computer usually opt in to buying themselves a pair of these glasses to reduce eye strain and increase the amount of melatonin the human body produces. This decreases blurry vision, headaches, and helps people to get a better night’s rest. Most smartphones already have a blue light blocking ability that allows the tone of the screen to change at desired hours or the natural surrounding light. That way people don’t have to wear blue light glasses while using their phones.
Something most people don’t know however is that newer televisions have a blue light filter listed in the settings menu under the display options. Most people would say that watching TV before bed isn’t a good habit, but there’s something about putting on a show after a long day that makes people continue to do it. So, making sure to change blue light settings on your television at night will make the habit less concerning. Don’t worry though, if you’re someone with an older television there are blue light filter stickers that can adapt your TV light to a yellow tint or block blue light all together.
People who don’t like to wear glasses, or don’t want to fuss with blue light blocking on a TV, have ditched watching shows on a television and use projectors instead. Projector screens are a great alternative, especially for theater and office rooms. They give off less harmful light because the blue light bounces off the walls instead of being shot directly at your eyes like on a TV.
