    NYT: Glasses designed to make it easier to fall asleep, by blocking blue light from electronic screens, are growing popular, but are largely untested.

    Interesting, something we may hear more about in the future. But I'm not sure about wearing any kind of eyeglasses in bed when you're close to falling asleep.

    I sometimes do that inadvertently with my daily prescription glasses, if I fall asleep while watching TV (apparently blue light from a flat screen doesn't affect me very much). They've fallen off as I slept and the frames gotten damaged from my rolling over them.

    One of my BFs used to wear a black sleep mask, that he kept in the nightstand on his side of my bed. It allowed me to watch TV late without disturbing him, and also made him less aware of the next morning's daylight so he could sleep a little later.

    It did make him look somewhat diva-ish, like a scene from the movie Auntie Mame. If a bit incongruous, since like me, he otherwise slept completely naked. But he did go to sleep quickly with them, and slept soundly all night.
