Moreover, image in the displays are not appropriate for our eyesight system (question of contrast and quality images). There are several ways by which light from gadgets can affect users: optical system and non-image forming system. Not withstanding, real impact on visual system by blue light wasn??t approved, there are many solutions on the market (simple glasses, special filters and coats for lenses and special materials). In this investigation makes attempt to evaluate difference in individual feeling during applying distinct filters and glasses. Methods: 15 people (30 emmetropic eyes) were asked to use different filters during working with gadgets and after 3 hours of work noted all benefits or disadvantages of every means. Special questionnaire was applied. Results: 11 people noted softer vision at once, 2 persons did not feel any change and 2 had complains about discomfort during work. 5 from 11 people did not feel any difference between filters. 4 choose brown filters as the best option for work and 2 special materials with additional compounds. Conclusion: Question about influence of artificial light on vision system is still opened. Although, market provides customers with several solutions, a medical approach to selection of correct filter does not exist. Therefore, investigation devoted to efficiency of filters should be continued.
