We get blue light from a lot of different sources, including an ever-increasing list of screens and technology; phones, laptops, televisions, and even watches emit blue light. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been spending more time inside and in front of these screens, for both work and leisure. This could be negatively affecting your sleeping habits, but the Lucyd Lyte Bluetooth smart glasses will be able to help!
There is a lot of buzz around “blue-light” but what even is it? Blue light is a color in the visible light spectrum that has a short wavelength, meaning it produces a high amount of energy. Exposure to blue light suppresses the creation of melatonin, a hormone that helps tell the body what time of day it is and when to sleep. The more exposure to blue light a person gets, the less melatonin they produce, leading to the body’s natural clock being out of rhythm. This leads to lessened and worse sleep.
How can Lucyd help? Recent studies have shown that wearing blue light-reducing glasses can help maintain melatonin levels and thus improve sleep quality. If you need to be in front of a screen, the Lucyd Lyte lenses are designed with the option to add Blublocker technology. Swap out your current lenses for a pair of blue light-reducing ones so you can stay connected to your digital life without having to worry about disturbing your sleeping habits.
Lucyd Lyte's handsfree accessibility can also help you to step away from your devices and keep you from distractions. Thanks to the Lyte’s built-in speakers and microphone, you can listen to music or use virtual assistants, like Siri and Alexa, to send messages and answer calls without looking at your devices. Wind down for the night by listening to audiobooks and sleep-encouraging music. If you need some suggestions, check out our resources page!
