Many people are finding it more difficult to sleep, and the problem could stem from their digital devices. That’s because computers, cell phones, tv’s, and tablets emit blue light. Even though people aren’t aware of seeing blue light, research shows it can decrease melatonin production, a hormone that regulates sleep cycles. Several studies show that not getting enough sleep will negatively impact your health, so this is an important issue to address. Our Digital Correspondent Cash Payne spoke with Dr. Amanda Hoelscher of the Key-Whitman Eye Center about how people can keep using their digital devices before bed and still get a good night’s sleep.
