I've heard computer screen type light prior to bed can disrupt sleep. I don't have a TV in the bedroom. When it's lights out, it's just that. No falling asleep to TV. If I watch TV late at nite, I have difficulty falling asleep. Maybe some truth to it?!

I've heard vigorous sex helps...




But I'm married so it is more a theory!

Next they'll claim getting out of bed will kill you. It is always something.

I really don't think it's the light that is effecting Us. It's Checking your email or watching tv that stimulates the brain and when your brain doesn't rest you don't rest.

Today, it's blue lights. Back in the day, it was black lights, pink floyd, and that paper stuff that stuck to your tongue.

My wife is a lighting engineer recently retired from Philips and she says blue light keeps people awake at night as the brain responds to blue light in the same way it responds to sunlight in the morning. If you have blue light emitting from a clock, computer or anything else in the bed room get rid of it. It isn't harmful per se but it leads to sleep dprivation.

There is certainly some concern over the amount of blue light we are around in today's time, especially our children. A child's lens is very clear and therefore does not absorb the blue light very well. There is more research to do but the long term effects on the cells in the retina are concerning. As we age the pigment in the lens increases and does a better job in absorbing blue light.

There does need to be some concern with the amount and timing of blue light for us all moving forward and if you already wear glasses already there is a coating that can help reduce the blue light that passes through your glasses lenses. I have had many patients that have noticed improvement in fatigue with these coatings. The coatings need some more research and improvement but we have to start somewhere.

because lenses filter, (subract, not add) how would a lens pigment shift help the ability of cells to absorb a particular wavelength?
what color blue? incandescent lights are approximately 2000-2500 Kelvin, halogen 3200K, daylight morning and evening light color temps vary by season and begin and end relatively warm. (2500-4000K). Direct sun is 5600 degrees kelvin and a clear blue sky can be as high as 10,000K.
