Visitors to the Spirit Lake Casino & Resort in North Dakota are drawn to the View restaurant for its panoramic vistas of a lake and marina. Outdoor sensors activate the window tinting process, and curtains and blinds are no longer needed. At the Spirit Lake Casino & Resort in northeastern North Dakota, the fine-dining restaurant is called the View because its third-floor panorama looks out on Devil’s Lake and its marina. But during the restaurant’s renovation in 2014, glass that automatically changes tint was installed across nearly 80 feet (24 m) of windows, replacing the curtains and blinds. Now at sunset, outdoor sensors activate the window-tinting process to block glare but still allow diners to enjoy the vista.

But there’s “no strong evidence that blue light affects the retina in any way we have to be worried about,” says Neil Bressler, M. D. , chief of the retina division at the Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute. The orange or yellow tints may give you the perception that the tint is soothing to your eyes when you’re on a computer, but there is no strong evidence that you need them for eye health or safety. PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK. Don't Threaten.
