    Even if you buy into the blue light benefits, the fluorescent lights seem like an awfully "blunt" way of getting blue light in your eyes. It seems like the common "blue light therapy" LED boxes would be better, letting you time the exposure and limit it to mostly your eyes.

    This is kind of a depressing article. Can't it be filtered through the Peat lens? Am I supposed to really believe I can't use light as well because I'm older?
