RedEye helps to loose your eye strain while using mobile phones at night.

• Are you having trouble falling asleep?
• Are your kids hyperactive when playing with the tablet before bed time?
• Are you using your smart phone or tablet in the late evening?

Recent research suggests that exposure to blue light before sleep may distort your natural (circadian) rhythm and cause inability to fall asleep.

The cause is the photoreceptor in your eyes, called Melanopsin. This receptor is sensitive to a narrow band of blue light in the 460-480nm range which may suppress Melatonin production - a hormone responsible for your healthy sleep-wake cycles.
