Is there evidence that use of the computer, kindle, and cell phone contribute to migraine? Is the light emitted from these devices troublesome?
Yes, there is evidence that high energy (HEV) blue wave or “blue light” that flickers from our electronic devices can aggravate migraines. This “blue light” can disrupt our sleep patterns at night, can cause eye strain, and cause oxidative stress all of which are associated with migraine. Treatment includes avoiding use of these devices for 3-4 hours before bedtime, wearing blue light blocking glasses while using these devices, and installing blue light blocking screens.
