What many people get wrong about blue light is believing that filtering it out will protect against digital eye strain, when research has indicated is not the case.
Research does, however, suggest blue light exposure in the evening can trick your brain into thinking it is actually daytime, which suppress melatonin production. This makes it harder to fall asleep and negatively affects your sleep quality once you do.
I’ve learned this firsthand from lower sleep scores on the nights I bring my phone (or worse, my laptop) to bed versus higher scores when I opt for a book or meditation.
But, like I said, sometimes the screens are inevitable. That’s where these Bon Charge glasses come in.
Following the brand’s recommendations, I put them on two to three hours before bed and simply going about my routine as usual.
