Gaming Glasses block Blue Light for Brain Injury Photosensitivity

Gaming Glasses, also called Blue Light Blocking Glasses, can be great help to those with head injuries who may be affected by photosensitivity. The changing of the ‘blue’ spectrum of light to a soothing ‘orange’ encourages the brain to release melatonin from the Pineal Gland. This assists in a state of relaxation, perfect in the hours before sleep.

You will be able to find glasses at a range of prices online.

Ideally limit your screen time to finish at least 2 or 3 hours before sleep in order to give your brain time to wind down and prepare for bed.

Computers emit a shocking blue to our retinas in our eyes so looking at a computer screen or your phone, even the TV, can cause our brains to remain at alert. It is ideal to wear these glasses for at least the last 2 or 3 hours before sleep.

There has been a recent addition to Apple devices (and it has been around a while longer on Android devices) named ‘Night Shift’ in which you can schedule your devices to lower the brightness settings and lend a duller tone for your device’s screen in the night time hours before bed.
