Uvex Skyper Blue Light Blocking Computer Glasses: These will honestly be the best (not even) $10 you could ever spend to enhance your sleep. Put them on a few hours before bed, especially when viewing electronics, and your sleep and life will thank you.
TrueDark™ Twilight Glasses: Ok, these are definitely more pricy than the Uvex, so we recommend starting with those, and only "upgrading" later. These glasses by Biohacked are specifically designed to block the entirety of all wavelengths which might stop melatonin production. You put them on and it's like.... I'm tired. Melanie likes starting the evening with the Uvex, and then transition to the Twilight glasses right before bed.
