This research from The Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-michael-j-breus/blue-light-sleep_b_3900607.html) claims blocking blue light not only reduce eyestrain but also helps sleep. So I think the most important is that if it... (more)

Check out Uvex's absorption spectrum documentation. They claim that their orange lenses block very close to 100% of blue light. These are intended as welding safety glasses, so I'd expect that these are based on real data and are pretty accurate.... (more)

I've become a huge fan of f.lux for my laptop, but f.lux for iPhone requires a jailbroken device. has anyone heard of a screen film that is halogen tinted? I'd love to reduce the harsh blue light of my screen.

These seem to be throwback, idyllic areas where everyone eats a clean, tasty diet and get exercise. They receive modern medical care. And all of them eat meat, IIRC. And if heavily fish, as Stephen R. says, then they're very close to Paleo (I'd... (more)

I bought the LowBlueLights fitover glasses in the smaller size, and they fit very comfortably (they don't feel small at all) but they have a HUGE gap on the top which lets in a lot of light. I have attached a picture below: As far as I can see,... (more)

I love candles--the soothing glow, the fascination of fire, the way they flatter people's faces, the lack of sleep-interfering blue-light. However, I have a cat and would really rather not having burning flames lying around just waiting to get... (more)

I have tried cheap blueblocking sunglasses from ebay and they only block about half the blue light. The Uvex or any from the US cost a fortune to import to the UK. If you are in the UK or Europe this company is probably the cheapest that sells... (more)
