101: The Screen Lens
Posted by Abbey Ward on
So it’s true, we spend our lives glued to screens.
Between the scrolling, trolling and all night flix rolling, now we even use our devices to administer intervals of relaxation in our days (hello meditation apps).
The prolific use of screens in our day to day lives, along with energy efficient lighting (LED and florescent light emit higher amounts of blue light than incandescent globes) is increasing our exposure to blue wavelengths, particularly at night. Blue light (over other light colours) causes the most upset to our circadian rhythms by suppressing melatonin and impacting restful sleep patterns.
