Blocking Blue Light to Help You Sleep
Posted: May 30, 2019
Blue light is part of everyday life as it’s produced by many common sources – from computer screens, smart devices and LED lightbulbs to natural daylight– and is known to be one of the main causes of insomnia for hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of Americans every year.
How blue light is bad for your sleep
The body has what is called the circadian rhythm. This is the “internal clock” that informs your body of the difference between day and night. The circadian rhythm depends on the release of the hormone, melatonin, which is released in the brain to help you sleep.
During daylight hours, the melatonin levels are very low, which causes alertness and attentiveness. The exact opposite happens at night when the melatonin levels are high, which helps you fall asleep. However, being exposed to blue light from computer screens or smart devices for extended hours at night results in the melatonin levels remaining low, altering the circadian rhythm. In turn, this confuses the brain and keeps you awake for longer periods. In fact, advanced sleep phase syndrome, delayed sleep phase syndrome, periodic insomnia, shift work sleep disorders, and even common jet lag are all related to circadian rhythm interruptions.
Although this may be a concern given the common use of electronics or irregular work schedules, there is an effective means of prevention to offset the challenges presented by blue light.
The benefits of BluTech
BluTech has revolutionized the way blue light-prevention works. Infused with Blue Light Plus TM that incorporates a combination of patented pigments and dyes, BluTech Lenses are designed to manage blue light rather than blocking all of it, which keeps your eyes healthy and helps with sleep. As BluTech Lenses provide solid prevention against blue light, they also enhance visual experiences and the ability to see the true color.
BluTech Classic and BluTech Ultra
With the introduction of the stylish, effective blue light filter glasses, The BluTech Classic and BluTech Ultra (that can be worn daily), you don’t have to be concerned about the negative effects of blue light.

The BluTech Ultra and BluTech Classic are designed to block up to 45 percent of blue light at peak emission times (455 nm), which stop the blue light from disrupting the circadian rhythm and disrupting your sleep.
