Do you easily feel a bit spacey, disconnected, separate?
You may be seeing too much blue light
Do you feel easily agitated, stuck in a rut, struggle to see ahead?
You may be seeing too much red light.
What Can We Do About It?
If you think you might be seeing too much blue light try:-
- Wearing blue blocking glasses. Inexpensive from Amazon. Yellow Irlen glasses may help.
- Use an overlay on your computer. A virtual overlay will allow you to adjust for different light. You will find you need colours ranging between purple, pink and reddy pink.
- Consider sleeping with a little extra red light at night.
- Choose clothes and bedding in the warm white, lilac, pink and red range. Avoid wearing black, grey and some yellow, oranges and greens (those that have less red) Choose warm colours for coats and shoes.
- Eat more food that is red, orange and warm yellow. Make sure you have something of one of these colour on your plate . Eat off a plate with a red rim and add some warm colours to your serving dishes and cutlery. Eat in a room where there are some warm colours.
If you think you might be seeing too much red light try:-
- Glasses? – I haven’t found any red blocking glasses yet but I am guessing they can be made. Turquoise Irlen glasses may help.
- Use an overlay on your computer. A virtual overlay will allow you to adjust to different light. You will need to find colours ranging from turquoise to blue and indigo.
- Light at night. I do not recommend blue as this is not said to promote sleep.
- Choose clothes and bedding that feel cooling to you – cool white, turquoise and blues.
- Eat more food that is cool in colour. I don’t recommend blue food except maybe blueberries and blueberry juice! But I suggest you use white as a way to cool colours on your plate. Eat off a white plate, use white serving dishes and eat in a room where there are cool colours.
- Only when colours appear ‘right’ to us can we take in their energy.
- Seeing too much red or blue light can prevent us from seeing colours as ‘right’
- We need a good experience of blue light in order to see and take in red.

We need to be careful not to block too much blue. I recommend one pair of glasses that blocks 90% and one pair that blocks 50%. There is naturally more blue light in the atmosphere at midday and seasonally in spring and summer. When light is dimmer and warmer (morning, evening, autumn and winter) there is less blue to block so may only need to wear 50% blockers.
If there are red blockers out there we would need to be careful not to block too much red. There is naturally more red light in the atmosphere in the morning, evening, and seasonally in autumn and winter. When light is brighter and cooler (midday, spring and summer) there is less red light to block so you would may only need to to wear 50% blockers.
The balance of blue and violet blocking varies in different makes of glasses. This is a case of trial and error and being prepared to change glasses for different lights. You may notice your temperature or your mood changing. These little signs let you know it is time for a change.
You may not always need your glasses to have a good visual experience. There may be times when the red and blue light is balanced perfectly for you and and you don’t need any glasses at all. Listen to your body.
