When you’re exposed to bright lights in the evening, it may disrupt your production of the sleep hormone melatonin.One strategy is to use a pair of amber-tinted glasses that block blue light from entering your eyes in the evening.This allows melatonin to be produced as if it were completely dark, helping you sleep better.

Tips on Protecting yourself from light at night

  1. Use dim red lights for night lights. Red light has the least power to shift circadian rhythm and suppress melatonin.

  2. Avoid looking at bright screens beginning two to three hours before bed.

  3. If you work a night shift or use a lot of electronic devices at night, consider wearing blue-blocking glasses or installing an app that filters the blue/green wavelength at night.

  4. Expose yourself to lots of bright light during the day, which will boost your ability to sleep at night, as well as your mood and alertness during daylight.
