For the record, close to a third of all visible light is, you guessed it - blue light. And there’s no extra points for guessing where they are emitting from (hint: tech with LED screens).

Did you know that your eyes are not very good at blocking blue light? While the cornea and lens of your eye are great at blocking the harmful UV rays from reaching the retina, almost all visible blue light passes through these barriers. Think soccer, without a goalkeeper.
With the increased exposure to digital screens at work, home or play, comes the harmful effects of blue light. One of it being the lower production of melatonin (hormone that regulates your sleep). And you wonder why you’ve had a poor night’s rest? 🤷🏻♂ Poor rest = poor health = poor life. You get the picture.
