It’s not hard to SEE that technology is ruling our world and intruding our minds today. You may be experiencing side-effects that you weren’t even aware of such as eye strains, dryness, insomnia, and other ailments. That’s where comes Prospek blue light filtering eyewear comes to the rescue. If you’re like us, you may be looking for ways to ease some of the discomfort and eyes strains that anyone who spends time in front of digital device experiences.
How many people are affected by the harmful rays of blue light? Look around at airports, restaurants, or any public venue and you’ll see heads down, gazing into a digital abyss. The amount of time spent on digital devices today is astounding. In fact, sixty percent of Americans today are spending a whopping six hours a day staring at their screens, according to a new study from Haifa and Harvard Universities. And, it’s not just adults that need to be concerned. Scientific Reports reveals that daily screen time utilizing touch screen televisions, mobile devices, and video games, contributes to disrupted sleep and sleep interruption, delay in falling asleep, and cognitive development in infants and toddlers between the ages of 6 and 36 months.
Light from fluorescent and incandescent bulbs, LEDs (light-emitting diodes) in televisions, smartphones and computers, heck – even alarm clock lights – emit blue light which alerts your body that it’s daytime. This has positive benefits during the daytime such as increased energy and wakefulness. The problem is at night where exposure has reached unhealthy levels. Besides the fact that blue light emits rays that cause eyestrain to your eyes and may permanently damage the eyes and contribute to both the formation of cataracts and to the destruction of cells in the center of the retina, the research also reveals a correlation with insomnia, depression, obesity and migraines. Additionally, the use of sleeping medication has doubled in the past decade; no coincidence considering blue light rays reduce the production of melatonin, a hormone essential for effective sleep.
With a zombified, insomniac nation addicted to their smart devices, prying those plastered eyeballs away from screens would require somewhat of a Big Bang (theory).

7 Tips to Reduce Blue Light Emissions
Harvard Medical School recommends that we make some slight changes to limit our exposure to nighttime blue lights:
1. Use dim red lights for night lights. Red light has the least power to shift circadian rhythm and suppress melatonin.
2. Avoid looking at bright screens beginning two to three hours before bed.
3. If you work a night shift or use a plethora of electronic devices at night, consider wearing blue-blocking glasses or installing an app that filters the blue/green wavelength at night.
4. Expose yourself to natural daylight which will boost your ability to sleep at night, as well as your mood and alertness during daylight.
5. Wear eyewear to block or filter blue lights and to prevent straining your eyes
6. Change your computer display setting
7. Install a blue light filtering app on your smartphone or tablet
