A professor from Evelina Children’s Hospital in London is urging manufacturers of smartphones to add a ‘night mode’ to the device to improve the sleep of phone users.

Professor Paul Gringas says that using smartphones and similar electronic devices before bedtime can keep people awake for hours after being exposed to the blue light from the screen.

Study has shown that for devices to be brighter and bigger also means that they create more blue light – which is proven to disrupt the body’s ability to fall asleep.

Professor Gringas says that smartphone manufacturers should be more responsible and include a built-in feature in their devices which automatically cuts back blue light at night.
