Richard Hansler, Ph.D., and Ed Carome, Ph.D., ’51G of John Carroll’s Lighting Innovations Institute were recently featured on CBS affiliate WOIO (Channel 19) for their research on the potentially damaging effects of artificial light from late-night texting, emailing, or catching up on TV. Working with JCU colleague and alumnus Vilnis Kubulins ’89G, the researchers developed special light bulbs and eyeglasses that remove the blue rays that can disrupt sleep and possibly cause other health problems. They are available online at www.LowBlueLights.com.
