    Firstly, you need to limit the digital device use. If you can not, at least cut back on it before bed. Studies show that exposure to blue light a couple of hours before bedtime actually suppresses melatonin and delays deep REM sleep significantly. So cutting back on tech use at night means getting better sleep, making people more productive at both work and school. Secondly, you should consider talking with your eye doctor about lenses that filter out blue light. The lenses have little-to-no tint and can help to minimize the direct blue light exposure that you get throughout the day. Most people who have these lenses noticed an immediate increase in eye comfort because of the improved contrast, which helps to relax the eyes.

    If you are working in front of a computer for an extended time, you need to cut out the blue light on your display to give your eyes some much-needed relief. Moreover, there is another way, you can wear a pair of blue light blocking glasses to block blue light from any electronic device. Besides, it also can block the blue light from the sunshine. Hope this helpful.

    Blue-light blocking lens materials can help. These are available with prescription and nonprescription glasses. Follow the 20-20-20 principle. This means, look away from your computer or digital device every 20 minutes for 20 seconds about 20 feet away. This helps your eyes refocus. Also, if you are using devices, make sure that you have ambient lighting.
