I have a blue light filter on my computer and phone screens 24/7, and I rarely watch TV at night (or at all). Even the regular smart phone screens without a filter are ridiculously bright and unnatural to me. I didn't like having to wear glasses at night so bought three Philips Hue bulbs for strategic locations in the house. They are now on a setting that blocks blue light in the evening and very early morning when my husband is up. Luckily he's 'cooperative' (not sure he perceives a choice
), because I really like just having the light throughout the space being in that orange/blue range.
Circ, thanks. And LOL re: the husband. Understand. I really like the blue light blocked both in the evening and in the early morning, and this before I knew others felt the same way! =)
Also, I had found reference to the hue bulbs but am grateful to find out they make a difference to you. I would like to put a few around the house so I do not have to wear the uvex glasses all the time. Although, I am so grateful for the glasses I find I reach for them automatically and just really like the blue light blocked. I also have the twilight app on my phone. Love it.
And I have ordered an adjustable sleep mask as the Walmart version did not fit comfortably. It may be a while before window treatments block light so this is my solution to that for now.
Thanks so much for your -- as usual -- very helpful comments. These things increase my arsenal of information. Although, I have found that while information is extremely important, it is the doing is that makes the difference.
Working on it. Thanks for the help!
