Blue Light; What’s the Hype?

Preventative measures to obtain this balance can be implemented with the following tips;

  • Stop non-essential notifications on electronics
  • Try to setup a consistent time before bed to avoid electronics, ideally two hours
  • Create phone/electronic free areas in the home such as your dinner table
  • Use blue blocking glasses/shields that have the proper percent blocking capabilities
  • Dietary increase of Lutein and Zeaxanthin rich foods such as kale and spinach, and possibly high-quality supplements
  • Implement the 20/20/20 rule for eye fatigue
  • Adjust brightness settings on electronics
