Bluelightblocking- blue light visible from the sides

    Hello everyone! :)

    I have been trying to find an answer to this question for a quite a while now. I have even reached out to several blueblocking eyeglass companies (Ra-optics for instance), but it seems like noone want to adress this question.

    Blue-blocking glasses blocks bluelight from the front, but not from the sides. When one turns one's head sideways you see the bluelight. Doesn't the light that gets through from the sides suppress the secretion of melatonin? or is it a non isssue?
  2. Of course the side light is a compromise. As you learn to eliminate all the sources of bad light, it becomes easier. If I am out of my home environment during dawn or dusk, I were a panama hat with blue blockers to avoid the street lights, hall lights or even at a party.

    Thank you for ur reply! :) we have eliminated all the sources of bad light inside our home, but it's when I am outside walking our dog or at a friends house that I need to block the blue light. I use blueblocking glasses with side protection when I am out with our dog, but I would prefare to wear something less nerd looking when I am with friends ;)

    Thank you so much! These are actually the eyeglasses that I wear when I am outside walking our dog:), but I was hoping that I could wear something cooler looking when I am with friends.

    Thank you for your reply Dan! This is precisely what I have been trying to find out, if the angle the light enters the retina somehow make a difference. Hopefully someone here can confirm that @Jack Kruse has adressed this question before.
