If your eyes have ever felt strained and tired after staring at a computer screen all day, welcome to the club. Chances are you’ve been in front of your desktop too long and could be taking in too much blue light.

But since getting rid of our screens is not an option in this digital age, people have been turning to blue light glasses as a way to help prevent some of the effects that blue light may cause.

In general, blue light is not a bad thing. It can actually help with alertness and boost your mood. However, the problem arises when there’s too much of it.

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, too much blue light exposure at night can disrupt the body’s circadian rhythm, thus making it harder to sleep. This is especially true if you’re constantly looking at your phone at night.

“Blue light from electronics trick the brain into thinking that it’s still daytime, so melatonin production is inhibited. This can lead to difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep,” Relief Jones, III, MD, a board-certified ophthalmologist and medical director told Insider. Moreover, Harvard researchers found blue light suppressed melatonin for “about twice as long” as green light exposure.

While there has been some discussion about blue light contributing to eye strain, it’s not necessarily the real culprit according to the AAO. Instead, eyestrain is caused by “how much we use our digital devices.” Therefore, the AAO recommends reducing the time you spend looking at your electronics.

Nonetheless, there have been claims that blue light glasses may help ease eye strain. Additionally, some studies suggest that they could help improve sleep quality.

Ahead, I’ve compiled a list of some of the best-selling and top-rated blue light glasses on Amazon for you to check out.

    Sonya Maya, a doctorate student and bartender, recently took to TikTok to share the psychology behind why people cling to toxic relationships. “Why is it that so many women can’t stop thinking about that person that won’t show them reciprocal effort?” . Maya went on to explain how “nothing creates an addiction like an inconsistent reward,” a phenomenon referred to as intermittent reinforcement. “Think about gambling, slot machines … When you get a text from this inconsistent person, it activates dopamine in the brain. Just like if you’ve been sitting at that slot table for a while and you finally get a reward”. This phenomenon is one that Maya says can numb you to the true quality of a toxic relationship. So, how’s a gal supposed to, well, stop being addicted to inconsistent people. “The first step is going to be understanding why you’re drawn to them,” Maya says. “Stop sacrificing energy for that person that isn’t reciprocal, do some self-reflection and time will heal,” she added
